Old Town trattoria with good pasta, nice patio. Convenient to Second City
Since moving to larger digs across the street several years ago this place is packed nightly. The new location has a large outdoor patio that spills onto the sidewalk and has quickly become popular with moviegoers, neighborhood families, and the occasional local celebrity. Though the ambience and service are charming, some users find the food -- traditional pasta and seafood dishes -- in need of more taste appeal. Perhaps the trick is to order one of the nonpasta specials. On a recent visit, filet mignon sauteed in Barolo wine was delicious, as was grilled fresh escolar with asparagus. The second-floor party room accommodates 100 in a large room with faux-finished walls and 22-foot ceilings.
