The scenes-from-Italy paintings on the walls won’t trick you into thinking you’ve left Chicago, but that’s fine. A meal at Bella Notte in Wicker Park will still probably take your mind off the fact that you just sat right in a wet spot on the El. Go heavy on the pastas (like the cavatelli or the lobster fra diavolo), and get half-orders so you can try as many as possible - trust us, you’re going to want to do that. Then take a cab home.
