Good for kids but expensive as well. Every dish could have been lighter; hiding great wood-oven-cooking with creamy decadent sauces. The pizza was great.

Everything was fantastic there! The service was really good and attentive and everyone was really nice and accommodating. The food was delicious. We had the arugula salad and the mushroom pizza and both were really good. They had a spicy olive oil that you could put on the pizza that was outstanding.

Great ambience definitely
The mussels apparently were their signature dish and they were exceptional. I m not necessarily a seafood fan but the white wine and bone sauce with the mussels was delicious.
Pizza ! Well I guess I have been to a bunch of pizzerias and you know what to expect and they are all about the same , but this one had a great presentation, came with a scissors too (made slicing easy and fun )
Crust was thin but not crunchy , easy to cut and chew , the meat, cheese and toppings were savory. Given a choice I d go for these restaurant based pizzas over any delivery service .

We went to Coda di Volpe for a dinner for my mother's birthday - the basic bucatini pasta was good, as was the starter arugula salad, but my mother's pizza (the pistachio pesto) was a bit underwhelming and the other starter salads were just okay. The server blantantly told my mother he wouldn't add mushrooms to her pizza, even though she requested and she was celebrating her birthday, because he didn't think anything could make her pizza better. It was a good plate of pasta I could get for cheaper somewhere else.

Southport Gem. They had a great selection of wines from different regions of Italy. The arugula salad is wonderful as is the bruschetta appetizer. All the pizzas looked really good. We had the Fungi and it was great. The Pheasant agnolotti was delicious and not too heavy. There is also a nice selection of gelato and sorbets. We enjoyed cookies and cream gelato and the pineapple/toasted coconut sorbet. Bon Appetite

We had dinner on a Friday night with 2 adults, 2 kids (8, 11). Bruschetta and grilled octopus appetizers were fantastic. Authentic pizza and pasta were just the right size. Kids loved cutting their pizzas with a scissors
And our server was passionate and conversational throughout. Great night out!

Our experience at Coda this trip was good, but not as good as it usually is. The appetizers--fritto misto and the zucchini blossom--were both outstanding. The pasta ragu was good, but the swordfish disappointed, as it was somewhat overcooked and oversauced. The service, as always, was outstanding and the ambiance very energetic. Coda is a great neighborhood restaurant that is worth traveling to. Notwithstanding that our most recent night there was a little less than we are used to, we will continue to keep it on our Chicago rota.

Visited Copa Di Volpe on New Year’s eve. They served a fabulous five course pre fixe menu, which was fairly well priced for the quality of food and given it was a holiday. The staff (who were all dressed in festive formal attire) was attentive, and the meal was beautifully orchestrated. To top off the experience, the atmosphere was perfect — from the holiday decor to the upbeat playlist that served as the perfect backdrop.

The food was top notch. We ordered the cheese board, zucchini blossoms, arugula salad, white truffle risotto, bucatini pomodoro and chocolate ganache mousse. The price for each item compared to the portion was disappointing. The waitress was helpful in choosing wines that adhered to our specific palates and matched well with our meal. I'd pass on the zucchini - the glaze was too sweet and they weren't as filled as other places. The truffle risotto was unique, rich but not over powering and the bucatini was a perfect classic.

We had a wonderful experience at Coda Di Volpe. It has a trendy vibe but still is very homey and cozy. The food was wonderful - we tried a salad, a pizza, and a pasta - all very tasty. Also left with a tab under $50 for two of us. I defiantly would recommend!
