Wood-fired pizzas, handmade pasta, and regional Italian dishes anchor the menu at this casual restaurant in Oak Lawn. The Carne pizza wowed us with its chewy crust lavished with crumbled pork sausage, crisp bacon, and generous folds of prosciutto. The creamy polenta of the day (it’s the ragù that rotates) made a comforting main dish, swirled with Parmesan and topped with a braised pork sauce. Roasted brussels sprouts were among the best we’ve had: honey-glazed for a caramelized crust and served with a tangy goat cheese sauce. Seared octopus topped with horseradish aioli came with a warm salad of fingerling potatoes flecked with sliced almonds and thin asparagus.
