This Northside Chicago outpost showcases magnificent Italian cooking, rustic and simple but with respect to the ingredients. The restaurant, a part of the Francesca restaurant family, was originally a candy store, and the warm woods and brick accents  have been preserved creating a unique dining experience. Their traditional dishes like Gnocchi Alla Bavosa and Pesce Vesovid are a tip of the hat to the earthy cuisines of Tuscany. A long list of libations offers many Italian wines as well as house-made cocktails.

Chris Curren's fun rock-n-roll vision is inviting, the drinks plentiful, and the food sure to satisfy.
