This is one of my very favorite restaurants. Their pasta is homemade and they cure their meat in-house. Love!

Our second time here. Service was outstanding from the moment we arrived to when we received the check. The food was absolutely delicious. I grew up with a grandma from Sicily, so I'm extremely picky about my Italian food. We will definitely be back.

I liked the portion size and how everything was plated. It was all very tasty - good flavor combinations. The gnocchi was light and flavorful, all of the tomatoes were fresh. Looking forward to going back here.

An essential lake view restaurant. Extensive Italian wine list. We had pasta but The pizzas looked amazing. Squash Gnocchi and bucatini pasta were excellent. The Napolenta pasta was hardier and perfect for a cold fall day. Don’t miss the ricotta doughnuts for dessert

Appetizers were good. We ordered pasta which was average and overpriced. The thing to get here is obviously pizza. With drinks, apps, and two mains it was rather expensive. Wanted to try and glad we did.

If you asked me how to describe this experience, I would say simply that it was fine. It was nothing special. The food was acceptable, but not great. The waiter was good. The bus staff seemed underwhelmed by their lives.

I would go back if a friend asked me to, but I wouldn't go out of my way.

Everything we had was really delicious, with the *exceptional* dishes being the pizza, roasted carrots, and desserts. Love the wine and cocktail list! We dined with our toddler and turns out we went at the right time because it was seemingly "family hour." But I would definitely come back for a romantic date later in the evening!

Great dinner, service, and ambiance. Classic negroni to start followed by the 2016 Angelin Langhe Nebbiolo. Started with Hamachi Crudo, heirloom tomato/peach salad, seafood squid ink linguini & Bavette ribeye cut. Everything highly recommended! Great date spot. Lincoln Park gem!

Coda De Volpe was excellent. We had a surprise event that included working closely with Coda Di Volpe to pull off the surprise. They were excellent. The event was exceptional and exceeding my expectations including Coda Di Volpe going overboard with a few surprises of their own for our group.

Have been there twice and both experiences were great. Went with a party of 7 - 4 kids 12 and under - to celebrate my birthday. Couldn't have asked for a better time. Food and service were great. Adults were treated to Prosecco. Melissa came to the table to wish me a happy birthday. We were all treated to dessert. Everyone was exceptionally nice and welcoming. And the food is really good.

We had a great meal with friends from out of town. The service was fantastic and atmosphere was very relaxing. We had brunch and the eggs Benedict were awesome. French toast was the best I’ve had. We shared the brick oven baked pizza, a great appetizer. The service was great as always and the prices were very reasonable for such a good meal.

A very solid choice, and the place delivered proper value and vibe as I expected from a quick look at the menu and pictures on Google. Mod decor and clean as a whistle. Salad was flavorful and downright refreshing. Bread under the focaccia was puffy and run-of-the-mill, but tomatoes etc were super. Steaks were grilled as ordered, though should have been salted a few hours before cooking - flavor was a bit lifeless, though the greens and sauce were great. Our waiter was a mild disappointment. He should have gotten us started with "hello", drinks, and an appetizer. Instead he spent an uncomfortably long interval minutes going over all of the specials on the menu in slightly cloudy and painful detail. Likely new, and surely conscientious. Please take as constructive criticism. I will go again.

We were seated right away, our waiter was informed and made some nice suggestions. We started with the arancini, tasty but a little small, next we went for a charcuterie plate which was really wonderful. Then we dined on a wonderful pizza, soft, chewy crust, nice balance of sauce and cheese and layered with prosciutto. A gelato tasting and a budino finished off our dining experience. It was a great evening.
