Chicago Italian for Saturday lunch near Armitage and Halsted

zquake | Mar 20, 2017 10:59 AM

I will be in Chi on Saturday and am looking for the best Italian I can find near where we will be shopping in the Armitage/Halsted area. The sticking point is that I'd prefer to do lunch, and most good dinner places open at 5.

I would be willing to shift plans for the perfect dinner place, but it would be even more important for it to be close to the shopping area. I've looked at Monteverde and some others, but they are pretty far. Piccolo Sogno was my first choice, but some here feel that I can do better.

I would also be willing to go non-Italian for a really really good brunch.

Any ideas? Budget is Piccolo Sogno adjacent (not black-tie, but not Olive Garden)

Monteverde Restaurant & Pastificio,
Piccolo Sogno
