I have been given the task of selecting a restaurant for a smallish group, perhaps 12 people, somewhere not too far from Park Ridge, Norridge, NW side of Chicago. Can anyone tell me about Via Veneto, Ristorante D'Agostino, Nonna Pino, Basilico,or any other place (not neccessarily Italian) that isn't too fancy or expensive but has great food and a nice atmosphere. I would really appreciate your help on this. I suggested the Tapas restaurant in Park Ridge but did not get a good response from those that feel it's expensive and stingy. (NOT True, by the way!)
Thanks in advance.
