The interior of this Evanston eatery features exposed brick with high ceilings and blue walls and accents throughout. The large dining room offers ample seating for large groups, and diners will feel comfortable wearing casual garb or dressing it up a bit.
The Italian and Greek-influenced dinner menu features appetizers like sauteed spinach with olive oil, garlic, feta and tomatoes, and main dishes like honey basil chicken and orange roughy. If you’re looking for something a bit more casual, the restaurant also serves pastas, burgers, soups, sandwiches and a wide range of salads. All menu items are priced below $20, and patrons typically leave with a hefty doggie bag. Lunch items range from patty melts and Greek spinach pie to grilled seafood salad and half portions of pasta dinner entrees like linguini, vermicelli and fettuccini. You can also grab French toast or an omelet if you have a hankering. The drink menu features wines that hail from California to as far as Africa and domestic and imported beers. Stop by for brunch beginning at 8 a.m. on weekends.
Average cost: $10-$20
