We weren't expecting to find such a great Italian meal in Naperville. The food was matched by the attentive and upbeat service given by the waiter and everyone we encountered. The food was excellent from the salad right on through to dessert. It was vey busy, but the staff squeezed us in which was fortunate. Highly recommend a visit when... More

A regular Stop for me when visiting Naperville. I love chicken Piccata. It is not on their menu but they make it for me anyway. How awesome is that?! Delish!

If you want to spend good money on Italian food then look elsewhere. The service was pushy and the food was mediocre and best.

La Sorella is part of a Chicago area chain of Italian restaurants which grew out of a Taylor Street favorite, Francesca. They use mostly fresh ingredients and change their menu often. In addition to several pastas, they will have some lighter entrees and excellent salads. And you can count on fabulous dessert choices. The tables are very close together and... More

I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. This time was no exception. We came at 1PM and not good weather. We were treated like royalty. They served from lunch and dinner menu and the service was personable and expertly done. Veal medallions were incredible.

Delicious and reasonable lunch. Perfect for business while enjoying the meal and great service. Cut through the sandwich place if you park in the lot. This would be my top pick fir price and quality for any type of lunch visit in downtown Naperville.
