Your choice ,with or without anchovies, believe me they seal the deal . My four cheese breaded veal with a light fresh tomatoes... More

This is a wonderful authentic fine dining restaurant in Peoria. High quality food and unbelievable service. Great for a date-night, but plan to drop some cash. Make sure you save room for dessert!

I had the salad Con Fungi, wonderful sautéed wild mushrooms over spring greens with a mustard vinaigrette. Yum. For dinner my wife had the Il Branzino, a wonderful pan seared Sea Bass over shrimp Risotto. I had lamb chops. I... More

The restaurant Connected in Peoria is not to be missed ... great ambiance, wait staff, cuisine that will be mémorable always. The soups are sublime. I had the chicken Marsala which was the best I've ever eaten anywhere. Great selection of wines. Huge dining area but even when full, you can carry on a subdued conversation. Can't wait to return.

Let me start by saying that if you haven't been here yet, you already have missed out. The service is top notch (black tie) and very attentive. My wife had the lamb chops and I had the veal with morell mushrooms. No disappointments. And make sure to send the night with lemonchello and a dessert. Again, you won't be disappointed.... More
