Quartino Ristoranto is one of my favs, definitely check it out. It’s in Gold Coast/RN.

Love Piccolo Sogno, one of my favorites. Their patio in the summer is incredible.

RPM Italian is pretty good too, but I wouldn’t consider it strictly Italian.

My parents are fans of Tufanos, but I thought it was overrated and pretty greasy.

I’ve heard good things about Topo Gigio. And nearby is Orso’s which has been in Old Town for a while

Pasta Palazzo in Lincoln Park
Nonnaninna on the river
El cucina di puglia in west loop

I like Gibsons Italia on the River. If you want to travel Buona Terra and Testaccio are across the street from each other in Logan Square.

Cavatappi in Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce

Tired of of the same old boring tomato marinara sauce? Try a roasted red pepper cream sauce!

Red bell peppers are roasted in the oven until sweet. It is then blended with caramelized onions, garlic, red pepper flakes, sun dried tomato paste, and cream into a silky, smooth and velvety sauce. Finish the sauce with a knob of butter and coat your pasta. Cavatappi works well here. Don’t forget to shave a little Pecorino Romano

I don’t think that most people they find in the lake went in it willingly. Water makes it too easy to cover up murders. Washes away evidence. But it’s dismissed because most people they found had also been drinking. But people just disappearing miles away from the Lake don’t just fall in it. Yes, suicide happens. But many of these cases show zero signs of anything like that. The constant MO is being out with friends having fun. The friend vanishes. Then is found in the lake weeks later.
