Before she was the best Bolognese chef in Chicago, Silvia Marani managed a sweater workshop in Italy.
How did she go from her atelier in Italy to making the finest, truly authentic, Italian food in Chicago? The answer is a simple one. Her great passion for food led her to where she was always supposed to be.
It started when she found her grandmother’s recipe book. At an early age, she was practicing and refining her grandmother’s meals to such a level that each dish was considered an art form (just glance at a few of our plates and you’ll agree). The refinement process was a collaboration between Silvia and her friends and family, all of whom would get together and share recipes and ideas with each other.
This process gave a physiological life to her recipes: fine dining nestled in a fusion of flavors, aromas, and family that’s evident in every bite.
We are absolutely grateful for the enthusiastic compliments our guests have offered us over these many years, and very much look forward to introducing you to our way of life.
