Topo Gigo (www.topogigiochicago.com) has fresh and yummy food that tastes like home-cooked Italian food. The restaurant has a great ambiance and lively feel to it. There is also a great outdoor area that’s perfect for dining outdoors in nice weather. They have a wide selection on their menu of appetizers, salads, pastas and entrées. I highly recommend!
