It was our first time dining at FornelloTrattoria. Heard a lot of good feedback, so we decided to have dinner at FT before seeing a show at the Mercury Theater on Southport. Started with the Antipasto appetizer & the Mista Insalata followed by the Gnocchi Quatro Formaggio & Linguine Calamari. Everything was delicious. The red sauce on the Linguine is probably the best I have ever had. My wine, 5 ounce glass of Pinot Grigio, was also very good. Staff was very busy, but it is my understanding that someone had called off. All in all it was a great experience. Highly recommend the place and will be back again soon! :-)

FORNELLO TRATTORIA – – 1011 W Irving Park Rd., Chicago, IL 60613, (773) 404-1800, fornellotrattoria.com

Q-Tips say: We liked it. The Q’s decided to have a drink and Mr. Q had the lasagne. Mrs. Q had one of the specials of the day. She really wanted the Braised Beef Ravioli that is on their internet menu but not on their restaurant menu. We were told that the restaurant was recently redecorated. The drinks were ok. The decent food, service is worth another visit for a before/or after Theater meal. They have nice outdoor seating, if that what you prefer or sit at the bar. If in the neighborhood, give it a try. You might enjoy! Alice 34203 and 60660

Disastrous dinner. We had a simple order , salad and pizza but the kitchen couldn 't cope at all. Apparently the take- out desk was so busy on the rainy night that the cook made us wait 1 and 1/4 hours before we got it. They seemed to give priority to the take- out part and customers in the restaurant were given second place. The waiters carefully avoided eye contact, understandably since no one likes to deal with impatient customers. By the way , my plate was whisked away with 10 seconds after my last bite. There was no lack of speed there. The food itself was okay but nothing more than that.

This restaurant is around the corner from another Italian restaurant that gets more publicity and is a little more "trendy," but we really enjoyed the food and the service. The dark wood and ambiance are "Italian supper club." There is outside seating, although we stayed inside. Give it a try!

We recently found this old neighborhood Italian gem. The service was perfect and attentive. The food 6 appetizers , salads and 6 dinners all winners. The portions were large enough to take home doggy bags. Wine list reasonable priced. Can't wait to return.
