Did you know that there are more than 600 varieties of pasta?
They range in size from ditalini to lasagna noodles, and the chefs at the following Italian restaurants pair the pasta with an array of delicious sauces:
Owned by Rich Labriola, Chicago’s premier artisan baker, La Barra offers shareable plates and handcrafted cocktails. The interior features a stylish, yet relaxing atmosphere that’s perfect for date night or family dinners, and the waitstaff often knows regulars by name. The sizeable menu includes pasta dishes such as penne marinara, ricotta gnocchi, and spaghetti and meatballs, which can be enjoyed with an Italian Manhattan.
LaBarra’s also offers weekly specials, and the stuffed manicotti is not to be missed on Tuesdays.
Known as Naperville’s hidden Italian treasure, Angeli’s is found at Chicago Avenue and Naper Boulevard. The restaurant began from humble beginnings, and it wasn’t long before it was filled nearly every night. Today, the dining area seats just under one hundred guests, and it comes complete with dim lighting, colorful murals, and tables covered with red and white checkered cloth. The menu includes stuffed shells, spinach fettuccine, and herb linguine.
Fiamme is a traditional Naples-inspired restaurant where the food is simple, yet flavorful. It’s known for offering a warm, intimate atmosphere, and the staff takes pride in providing unparalleled service. In the kitchen, the chefs make the dishes from fresh ingredients, and they offer a menu with some delicious vegan and vegetarian options. Choices include sausage rigatoni, braised short rib ravioli, and tortellini ricotta, and the tiramisu makes for the perfect end to any meal.
