A corner bar television constantly tuned to (European) football, vintage aperitivo posters, and a welcoming patio tailor-made for afternoon glasses of prosecco: charismatic host Dario Vullo has installed his own little slice of Milan in Wicker Park. The chic trattoria offers an intensely Italian menu and wine list to match the authentic accents of Vullo and family. A trio of arancini are playfully prepared, with each rice ball sporting a unique shape-sphere, triangle, and cube-to denote a special filling like Bolognese ragù and smoked mozzarella; or mascarpone and spinach. House-made pastas like beet gnocchi in saffron sauce steal the show from equally flavorful and fresh focaccia sandwiches layered with creamy burrata and Prosciutto di Parma.
