La Notte Ristorante Italiano - Oak Park
Always good. Food cooked to order. Good, reasonable wine list.
Fantastic food! Quaint atmosphere, relaxing. Food tastes amazing. Have been several times, one of our favorites!
Always a fab meal and great service. Only complaint is level of noise
First time I went, it was FABULOUS. This time, mixed. The minestrone soup came lukewarm and we had to ask for grated parmesan for the top. For some reason, the waiter thought I didn't want my wine til the main course came. I didn't know he'd asked me. In all fairness, we were seated outside and it was a bit hard to hear. In the end, he did not charge me for the wine. The veal Marsala was delicious, although we seemed to wait a long time for it and ultimately had to ask about it. The staff was courteous and accommodating, once asked.
Fantastic food. Charming service.
Incredible experience, fantastic food and service.
La Notte is always amazing, you are missing out if you have never eaten here. The owner Giovanni and his son Francisco are amazing. Their menu is outstanding and , they will even cook something for you that’s on the menu if you ask them.
Yes, the service is friendly and prompt. And yes, the fresh warm bread is very good. And it’s really got a warm ambiance and feels like a neighborhood gem. But the entree dishes, however, are nothing to “write home about.” I had the farfalle con broccoli (a bit too al dente, with overdone garlic) and my partner had the eggplant parmigiana with spaghetti marinara (on the sweet side). So, we might return, but it won’t be the regular spot I was hoping for.
Owner and son were two man entertainment team. Wonderful meal and great service.
Giovanni and Francesco are amazing!! I absolutely love this place... The food is awesome and the company is even better!!
It's a lovely place especially during the summer. The open air is wonderful to experience.
First time at LaNotte celebrating friend’s birthday. The appetizers and all 4 entries were beautifully prepared and served by a wonder staff. Wine selections include many Italian reds and the staff provided excellent advice. The Executive Chef paid us a friendly visit and was gracious. All in all a splendid evening.
We love LaNotte Ristorante. The food and prices are excellent. My husband and I are able to split the sides like appetizers and desserts since they are large enough for two. At the same time, the main dish is a perfect size. The only issue we have ever had is that sometimes the energy and noise level is a little high. However, overall we are very happy with everything about the Ristorante. MT
Excellent dinner and service. Would highly recommend.
Love this place so much! Best food! You can never go wrong with the specials
I used to go to La Notte in Berwyn, the food is still amazing in Oak Park. Everything is fresh and can be made to order at this family owned restaurant. I highly recommend the grilled calamari and polenta to start. The interior is very bright and compact, but since the weather was beautiful we sat outside next to the fountain which created the feeling of being at a European cafe. Feel free to order any Italian dish you don’t see on the menu, if they have the ingredients, they will make it for you.
I love this place! It’s the best authentic Italian and great service! The owner Gio and his son Francesco are amazing and always make us feel welcomed.
Friends birthday. Giovanni was very hospitable and the food was amazing.
Excellent food, excellent service. Will definitely go back.
Owner waited on us and made a special request meal. It was wonderful!!
Great place. Authentic Italian food, family owned and run. Love this place
We are regulars at La Notte. My whole family loves to have dinner at La Notte...the place is very inviting, the service is more than outstanding....and the food is unbelievable. We drive 35 mile to dine here and can't wait to do it again. We drive past dozens of Italian restaurants on our way to La Notte, but the trip is worth it every time.
Great place. Excellent service and outstanding food. Great mom and pop spot.
Four of us ate at La Notte. Everyone said their food was great. I had the veal piccata and my husband had Sea Bass. The others had pasta dishes. All were excellent. Service was very good. The waiter explained up front that the food takes longer to prepare so we expected that but it wasn’t unreasonably long. We did have an early reservation (5:00) so it wasn’t crowded and was very pleasant.
Every time we go we love it! Always new specials and great service!
Amazing every time
Very authentic Italian cuisine. Very friendly owner, chef and wait staff.
Probably the best meal I’ve had in years!!! Such a cute, quaint restaurant with an unbelievable menu. Literally can’t go wrong ordering anything on the menu. The service and owners are beyond amazing.
It’s always great!
Great personal service. A menu that can be tailored to your needs. And delicious food in a nice setting. A pleasure
Always enjoy going here, food is fantastic and made to order and so fresh. Can be a bit loud because its a small place. We will be back so many excellent dishes to try!!
First time at this location. Highly recommended reservation due to space limitation as well as highly active atmosphere. Wait times also long so if willing to wait then drink slowly or expect finishing quickly with your first bottle. Go early if you are not a late person. Still an excellent and enjoyable time.
We were here on a Saturday night at 6:30. Loud table next to us. The food was excellent, the service as good as it could be (they were quite busy) and the wine very good too; however, as is the case with too many restaurants these days, it was very loud!! We plan to go back on a weeknight when it is hopefully a bit quieter.
Wonderful experience from the atmosphere to wine then amazing dinner. Everything is prepared from scratch with attention to detail. Very knowledgeable about food sensitivities. I have Celiacs and they made my meal to order. I can’t wait to go back.
Very good, the chef will customize anything. Menu as written did not need any changes
We had the special which the most amazing food I've tasted!
Service was great. Our server was attentive and patient about answering any questions we had.
The polenta was the best I've ever tasted. It's a must have, seriously!
For us the Veal Piccata is comfort food. Every time we go it’s like going home - and the food is EXCELLENT. I can’t say enough to convey how special this restaurant is. Always a positive and comforting experience.
Awesome experience. Food is outstanding
Amazing! Best food outside of Italy! Family owned. Charming atmosphere. All homemade food. Great drinks. Ahi tuna app excellent. Lamb sausage great. Ziti pasta sooo good. Tulip special dessert best ever. Had old time Italian movie on silent - nice touch. Excellent for any occasion.
Excellent food & service. Amazing menu, food prepared to order so things can be adjusted if need be. An amazing amount of options. If it is really crowded it can be a bit noisy due to the smallness of the space itself but well worth it. A place that makes you feel transported to Italy & at home.
