Between the "consistently impressive" pizzas, "must-have" pastas, "delicious" cocktails and "oustanding wine list", fans find lots to like at this Lincoln Park ‘in' spot where chef Chris Pandel's "inventive" dishes offer an "original" take on Italian cuisine; the "sprawling", earth-toned space includes a brown leather and steel bar and can be a "bit of a scene", but service remains "helpful", and its location across from the Steppenwolf makes it an "excellent choice for pre- or post-theater dining."
