For me great Italian restaurants know how to make a killer red sauce. This place is another one of those places in Chicago. It's another Italian restaurant that makes Chicago famous and makes us proud. They not only have great foods but have authentic decor . The service is first rate here also. I know they have been here a long time. How many years, I don't know for sure, at least 20 that I know of. This stuff ain't out of the can, that's for sure.
