Editorial Review of O'Fame


Formerly: The name "O'Fame" is presumably a play on the Italian phrase "ho fame," which means, "I'm hungry." It's not merely a name, though; it's a suggestion to all diners to go there on an empty stomach.

The open yet intimate dining room features candlelit tables and a small bar area, with large windows looking out onto the bustling corner of Webster and Halsted Streets. The menu is traditional Italian, but is noteworthy for its expansive selection within that fairly generic category, as chicken and pasta dishes compete for one's attention alongside a wide variety of thin-crust, pan and stuffed pizza choices. And one must also contend with the formidable wine list...

Considering these exhaustive lists of alternatives, one can imagine that an indecisive companion could make for a long evening. Luckily, the complementary tomato bread is plentiful, and the staff is usually at the ready with prudent suggestions to aid the dithering diner. O'Fame also does a robust carryout business.
