312 Chicago Restaurant Review

: With Luca Corazzina as its head chef, this grown-up but welcoming Italian restaurant remains inviting enough for a casual affair but glossy enough to seem celebration-worthy. Given its proximity to the theater district, the restaurant does a brisk business as one might expect, but all the warm wood details, crisp-linen tables and low lighting are clearly built for romance. The kitchen remains steadfast in its commitment to serve seasonal and, when possible, local fare. So, spinach-flecked strozzapreti teams with walnuts and Gorgonzola cream sauce, while fish stew benefits from plum tomato and white wine broth. Standbys, like rigatoni Bolognese, are represented, too. Be sure to check out the barrel-aged house cocktails, like the negroni or house Manhattan.
