Wine bottles and framed prints of labels line the walls, and the red-and-white vinyl tablecloths take a beating -- it's a favorite destination for families and Northwestern students. Spaghetti with meat sauce or marinara comes in huge portions, pizzas have a perfectly thin crust and fresh toppings, and the bread's homemade. There are plenty of meatless options as well: spaghetti aglio e olio (with garlic and olive oil), fettuccine Alfredo primavera with broccoli, carrots, and red peppers, and a rich, delicious spinach-ricotta cheese pie with a mushroom-lemon-butter sauce. The servers are young and at times unprofessional, but that's just part of the place's casual charm.
