La Scarola

Another one of those out of the way jewels. At 721 W. Grand, you're not going to stumble over this one. Maybe known to a lot of regular chowhounds, but I just found it. Great Italian (the real stuff) food, family run atmosphere, good, personable service. Neighborhood type place, friendly. Good place for a "lean back and enjoy it" type of dining situations. The Scarola and Sausage appetizer is "to die for". Well worth searching out.
