Re: “Barberry

Typical thai place... nothing terribly innovative on the menu, but most items are under $8. Good local place.

Re: “Pizza Rustica

Though this place isn't the coziest or most romantic Italian restaurant, the food is FABULOUS. Everyone in our part loved their dish, and there was a lot of sharing going on. Plus, the pizza portions are huge and delicious, and all the prices are bargains!

Re: “South Coast Sushi

I love Coast... who doesn't? But the South Loop location has some catching up to do. The prices are higher, and the atmosphere isn't as warm. The sushi is still very good though.

After hearing raves about this place, I was disappointed with the interior of the restaurant. It was cold-feeling and stark, and the room echoed everyone's conversations. Service was sparce, which surprised me considering we had such a large party. The food was great, but that was about the only great thing we experienced here.

Re: “Francesca's Forno

Being that I love Mia Franscesca's in Lakeview, I was excited to try this new location. Instead I was disappointed. The fontina and proscuitto fritters were bland and oily. The pasta dish we ordered was fairly flavorful, but hardly the portion we all have come to expect from italian restaurants. Especially for the price.
I don't think I'll be rushing back to this place anytime soon.
