Food here is great. Very busy and active place that is super noisy. Food is worth the visit. Very popular with the locals and the pricing is reasonable. Highly recommend and will be back!

Great location after theater in downtown Chicago and on our way home. Wonderful evening-great service, menu was excellent. Seated in downstairs dining room so able to have conversation comfortably. Meal servings were appropriately sized so able to enjoy desert too! Great first visit, but not our last.

Visiting up north friends brought in pizza and salad and we were pleasantly surprised. The pizza is four stars while the salads we had were very unremarkable and average.....Thin pizza with a slightly sweet sauce was great.... sausage was delicious but could’ve used a bit more. Veggie pizza also was well received despite spinach, not my choosing. With so many nearby pizza options including Piero’s in HP, I doubt we’d order in from here again... but would be open to eating their Italian food in their restaurant.

Silo Pizza

Reviewed By jlervmarq

Went with a group 9 (half kids/adults) for lunch and had the Idaho nachos w/taco meat (good but not great) and garlic bread (good) for appetizers. Kids portions were huge and they have toys (etch-a-sketch, 8-ball, etc) to entertain them. The adults had pizza (Frisco, Supreme, and Meat Lovers—all pan style) and everyone enjoyed the flavors. Service was slow and very unenthusiastic—across the entire staff (hostesses, servers, bartenders,etc). We are easy-going people that love good food and drinks so tried hard to engage the staff; however, the staff at Silo seemed bored and made us feel as if we were an inconvenience.

Great Italian deli with hot meals for lunch. You can get a variety of stuff here - well beyond their website menu. They are also a market, importer, and catering business. There are plenty of tables to sit at, and the food is delicious.

Home of the original XL NY Slice. Since 1956, Sbarro has been serving the XL NY Slice. Starting with made-daily hand stretched dough, San Marzano style sauce and topped with 100% Whole Milk Mozzarella cheese.

This Sbarro is one of several restaurants located in the Lake Forest Oasis on the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) heading to Wisconsin. There are other sandwich/fast food restaurants at the oasis, but Sbarro will get you a good meal. We stopped there and ordered a pepperoni stromboli for one of the grandkids to eat. Not only was she happy, but she fell asleep once we got back to the car. That is like a "twofer". Prices were reasonable for oasis food. The staff seemed friendly and efficient.

Ferentino's Pizzeria East

Reviewed By familygalChicagoIL

Spending a weekend in Lake Forest for a swim meet definitely required some tasty food, especially pasta! At the recommendation of a friend, we checked out this cool spot. They had the Cubs on the TVs and a great family friendly atmosphere. Group was split on dining in versus carrying out and driving 20+ minutes away. Carry-out won, but nobody was disappointed. Once home, the baked pasta, as well as tomato basil rigatoni hit the spot. The pizza was fresh, hot (!), and delicious...worth every tasty calorie! Discovered they are open 7 days unlike their sister “West” Lake Forest location. Looking forward to a return visit!

Ferentino's Pizzeria

Reviewed By cchicago

The food at Ferentino's is generally good. The pizza crust and sauce are good and they add plenty of ingredients. The pasta and meatballs are tasty and the panini sandwiches that I've tried have all been good.The chicken parmesan however.... Avoid it! It is obviously previously frozen, breaded, pounded flat. Tough and not tasty! If you want good Chicken Parmesan in a fast food or take out setting go to Portillo's / Barnelli's in Vernon Hills - it's quite good there.

Francesca's Intimo

Reviewed By j1629

We came at around 9:00 on a summer Saturday night. We split a Cesare salad and chicken salvia. I had a glass of Pinot noir. Everything was very fresh and delicious. Our server could have been a bit more personable. He looked at me funny when I asked for tomato sauce rather than olive/oil. Other than that, it was very good and I would dine again.
