    The fried calamari was good…especially the marinara sauce. My Italian sausage pasta dish…the sausage was reheated on the flat top grill presenting more of a dry entree. The other pasta entrees ordered for our table of 4 were tasty. The service was impeccable. While we did not go to the bar, it looked very cozy.

    The food is always delicious with the Pollo à la Florentina, being my favorite entrée and the baked cavatelli being my favorite pasta. Charmingly, the Chef-owner runs the show and is always happy to make a recommendation.  I’ve been here at least a dozen times and each time has been great.

    One of our favorite restaurants. The wait staff is consistently welcoming, knowledgeable and efficient. The food is top quality and the kitchen is very accommodating to individual needs and tastes. The restaurant is a gem and centrally located for our group. The weather was bitter but the group braved it to celebrate a birthday and enjoy a delicious dinner together in a welcoming atmosphere.

    Food just was ok and expensive for what it was. Music they were playing was bizarre and not appealing (felt like bad club music). Service was attentive and friendly. We would probably not go back unless we were in a pinch and could not get a reservation anywhere else. I do love the look the main room.

    I will try again because overall it was a good experience. My initial disappointment was the fact I had noted in my reservation I wanted a quiet table in the back. I arrived to find the couple we were meeting in front by the bar. Asked for a different table and they did move us but it seemed to be a big deal. Pasta was good. Pork Chop was tough. I remember when it was Philanderers. They have basically kept the same ambience.

    This is a hidden gem! It doesn’t look like much, but just trust all the reviews and give it a try. The freshest, most delicious Italian meal!! Everything was excellent, including our server, Melana and meeting the chef at the end of the night!! We will be back and have already told all our Oak Park friends about it.

    We used to come every now and again and for the amount of food you get compared to the pricing … IL Vicolo is a better value for excellent food. I ordered the Linguini Fra Diavolo with chicken, because I stay away from shell fish, and I was still charged as though I had the shrimp. The food is DELICIOUS no complaints but the little ramekin of oil and cheese and ramekin of dressing on the side is a little pedestrian for the prices. We should have had a bit to take home. Even RPM and Gibson’s feeds you like grandma did!

    We had a great experience on Saturday night. La Notte did a wonderful job getting us a quiet table (we had a guest with hearing loss) which made for a very enjoyable evening. As usual, the food and service were fantastic. We always like going to La Notte for dinner. We will keep coming back!

    Sat outside on the lovely patio. The staff was attentive and the food was very good. 2 complaints: 1. the menus were stained and needed to be replaced. 2.I ordered an espresso martini after dinner and never received it but was charged for it. They took it off the bill and sent a shot of limoncello as a sorry. Overall would return.
