Lots of vibes about "new, elegant, cosmopolitan", and the food isn't really all that bad, but they missed the mark as far as a real Italian dining delight. The "assorted antipasti" is just a few grilled veggies - - not much flavor excitement there.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
