The more casual sibling of River North’s Coco Pazzo, this bustling café draws much of its clientele from the neighborhood’s many hotels, but locals like it, too. (The sidewalk tables are a big draw in warm weather.) Pastas, risottos, and other tastes of Tuscany range from pleasantly straightforward to timidly inoffensive. On recent visits, favorite bites came from the beautiful, bountiful antipasti table, not just the terrific grilled, braised, and roasted vegetables that with wine and bread would make a dandy meal on their own. Try the delectable rustic apple crostata had for dessert.
