MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This Italian knows how to make an impression: its prime location across from Millennium Park would be a looker any day, but it goes the extra mile with style and sociability. The dining room is dressed up with angular light fixtures and orange banquettes; a luminous marble bar and matching tables lend a masculine, sophisticated vibe.

The carte’s standards are as satisfying as they are spot on. Salt cod crochettes sport a golden crust and creamy filling bolstered by mashed potatoes, but it's the fetching speckled earthenware dish that catches the eye. House-made rigatoni tossed with lamb ragù is well-seasoned, complex and perfect for a cold winter's night. For dessert, a fresh ricotta tart is highlighted by bittersweet orange marmalade.
