We had reservations at Bella Bacino next to Hotel 71 but my friends cancelled it to go to Giordinos instead. They claim they had shoddy service the day before at lunch. Giordinos was like a 99..nothing memorable. The antipasto was lame (iceberg lettuce, pale tomatoes, some provolone and ham). The service was great. The deep dish pizza was what I expected, huge and filling. Nothing amazing ..the crust was pretty darn good. 200+ for 8 adults and 3 kids with some having beer and wine and a few cocktails.

Dinner Sat. at Rosebuds on Rush. Pretty noisy but lively and fun. 520.00 for 8 adults and 3 kids all having an entree,some having a nice salad and two bottles of a great cab. Oh a few desserts..nothing memorable. The food was ok to pretty darn good but nothing that was oh my gosh good. It was a nice evening.
