Jeff Vallone is following in his father's footsteps with his new restaurant in the 'burbs. Now southwest suburbanites don't need to trek into town to enjoy the Vallones' legendary food and service. Whether it's on the expansive patio or in the nicely appointed dining room, you will enjoy fine Italian cuisine without the stuck-up attitude (or prices) of some of the other Vallone enterprises. The dining room centerpiece is a cold appetizer display that will excite even the most jaded of diners. One could easily make a meal just of appetizers, like the carpaccio of branzino (a fish found in the Mediterranean) or the roasted peppers or stuffed eggplant. Pasta dishes, all featuring homemade pasta, include paccheri, tubes of pasta filled with shrimp, spinach and cheese; pansotti, filled with butternut squash infused with sage; and the incredible fazzoletti (handkerchiefs), large sheets of pasta stuffed with crab meat. Seafood, veal and pork items and a wonderful osso buco allow the chef to display a wide variety of dishes.
