Doesn't take big bucks to eat great Italian food!!!.
I can't think of a better value in Italian cuisine, much any other kind of cuisine. For less than $10 per person, you can eat better than most expensive Italian restaurants. Try the margherita pizza, it is fabulous and probably the best I've ever had. Also, their arrabiatta sauces are fantastic. The baked clams as an appetizer are solid, and everything I've had on the menu is great and tastes fresh. The atmosphere, while tight is pleasant, and if you eat in the staff brings you out bread to soak up olive oil and parmesan, which are both of high quality. We live in Lombard, and while there are may more expensive restaurants throughout the the area which we have eaten at, my wife and I always look forward to eating here. I HIGHLY recommend this place.
