Dishes are classic at this Little Italy Italian: antipasti might include broiled octopus in white wine with lemon and herbs and Italian sausage and peppers in a red wine sauce. The insalate di mare blends lemon-marinated shrimp, calamari, conch, and red peppers in a quantity large enough for a meal, or at least for sharing. Pasta dishes run the gamut from cavatelli in a bolognese sauce to tortellini with mushrooms and prosciutto to fettuccine alfredo. Veal, chicken, and fish offerings include saltimbocca (thinly sliced veal topped with prosciutto and provolone in a sage-white wine sauce), chicken Vesuvio, and salmon alla carciofi (a mix of artichoke hearts, mushrooms, capers, and roasted red peppers). The restaurant's a popular pre-United Center stop.
