The chef/owner has made multiple appearances on the Food Network channel. One of his most famous dishes is the chocolate truffle bolognese created from house-made chocolate truffle pappardelle in a meat sauce with ricotta, pesto and citrus gremolada. Though, most anything else on the menu is flavorful including the stuffed Chicago and Sicilian-style pizzas, imported antipasti and seafood pastas. The casual, elegant atmosphere is enhanced by a wall of windows overlooking a peaceful pond. Servers are attentive and show a true desire to be of service. The large contemporary bar is popular with the after-work crowd.
