Bistro | Oak Park, Near West

We were there for my birthday celebration which was acknowledged upon arrival. It was our first visit there and we were pleasantly surprised with the whole experience. We were seated in a corner and had a view of the entire restaurant. The service was excellent. The menu had something for everyone. They have Lake Superior whitefish and walleye on the menu which is a find in this area. Dessert of my choice was presented with a candle. I very much enjoyed the experience and will be back to try other menu items. More

Italian | Berwyn, Near West

Fantastic! Capri Due replaced a long-time neighborhood restaurant and has exceeded every expectation. The staff is warm and friendly, greeting each customer sincerely and making you feel right at home. Our waiter was incredibly knowledgeable, the owner came by to check on us personally, and all the food was prepared and served perfectly. It was on special, so they don't have it every night, but the pork shank was absolutely the best I had ever eaten (I'm 45 - I've had my share and then some.) My wife had the Linguine & Shrimp in white sauce. The shrimp were HUGE. And the Lemon Marscapone dessert was almost too much. Almost. 10 out of 10! Along with Oliver's, Autre Monde, and the original Capri on Roosevelt Rd, Berwyn now has four top notch dining choices to go along with the world class Mexican food venues that are too numerous to list here! 100% guarantee we'll be back monthly, if not more!
