Definitely inconsistent. I really like the pizzas although several purists insist they are not "real" Chicago style. I have had a couple of good pannini, and I agree on the bread pudding being very good.
Their salads are some good, some so-so. The meatloaf I had there was bad. The pastas are OK, but very American in style, lots of sauce and heavy on the garlic. Most of the vegetable dishes are average to bad.
I do like the place and think Tony is a great guy.
