Best Little Italian Restaurant this side of Texas! 10/19/2007

We have been going to this restaurant for the past 20 plus years! Yes, their veal is so tender it melts in your mouth like butter! You can sometimes hear them pounding the veal back in the kitchen, it is THAT fresh! We happen to like the Francese version, but I am sure all of their other dishes are just as primo. Pros: Small and intimate! Great bar! Take out service! Cons: Parking might be tight if your party each brings their own car. more

The place for Veal 10/19/2007

I have been going to this resteraunt for years and will say that it truly has the best food I have ever had. I think that the Veal is especially something everyone should have. It is better than the rest of the places I have been in Chicago. It is a small quiet restaurant that gives a really intimate feeling. The service is always great. They give pleanty of time to finish each course and are accurate with the orders. To start I recommend going with the minestrone soup, it is great. All of the main dishes are great, but I really must say that if you enjoy veal you will never have had better. My favorites are the veal salimbocca or the veal tenderloin in vesuvio sauce. If you are not a veal lover there are still pleanty of great choices including the chicken francaise. I am always too full to have desert so I can't say how that is, but with food this good it would make sense that the dessert is also fantastic. There is a decent wine selection as well. This place is a hidden treasure. Pros: terrific food Cons: a little expensive, but worth it. more
