We went for a family meal before the symphony. Our adolescent nephews a nut allergy and was reluctant to try some of the offerings, so he ordered a pizza which wasn't that good. The rest of us enjoyed the meal very much.

Dinner & service where quite good at this Italian attached to Symphony Center. Both the Pappardelle and the salmon were excellent. The Romaine lettuce wasn't as good. And you can access the Symphony without braving the elements.

We ate here before heading to the PrivateBank Theatre. The service was outstanding and there were many good choices on the menu. We had heirloom potatoes as an appetizer, and they were very tasty. My husband enjoyed the lasagna, while I had the tagliolini with salmon sausage, which was truly tasty. We will visit this restaurant again.

Wow! What a nice surprise. This is a cool romantic restaurant to have a nice talk with your spouse. The food was amazing. We ordered mushroom pizza (a must), fries sprouts (yeah!) and a mixed greens salad (it will surprise you). Go for it! ¡Wow! ¡que gran sorpresa! Este es un romántico restaurante para traer a tu espos@. La comida... More

As others mentioned, the location is convenient for a place to eat after a Symphony, but that's about it. First off, the food was probably the worst Italian food I had. Their seasonal soup wasnt anything special. Their other dishes were subpar to awful. The calamari tasted burnt and small, the steak was a poor cut of beef, stringy, and... More

Located in the same building as the symphony center, the restaurant offered a convenient post show dinner. That can mean that the restaurant can get slammed however. That was our experience. The server's tried but dinner took almost three hours. Food was OK, decent specials, decent drink choices. Maybe it was an off nite, but last night was an average... More

The food was delicious and great service. Rissoto was perfect. We had a group of 16 and were served better than most of my dinners when we are a party of 4. Thank you!

I booked the reservation with visions of a great pasta meal dancing in my head.... Unfortunately the pasta menu just did not appeal. I had pizza, which was pretty good, though it seemed to take forever to get to my table. The fried brussels sprouts were amazing. The staff at the front were very friendly and welcoming, and the service... More

Dropped in for dinner while staying at The Palmer House. Almost didn't go in because I heard from the street the horrible "oldie, goldie Christmas music". The place was nearly empty and that must have been why, especially being right next to the Opera house. Even the poor bartender and waiters agreed! Won't return this visit!

Delicious food beautifully plated. Fair prices. Nice atmosphere. Service started out very good and then deteriorated. We waited 25 minutes for a cannoli which just had to be put on a plate. Tea and good coffee came first, but by the time dessert arrived both were cold. We had signaled our waiter and a "manager", but to no avail.

Thank Phyllis B
