Loop Italian

Italian dinner in the loop? We like Volare but are meeting friends and would like a place that is a bit quieter and not so rushed but good basic Italian. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Trattoria # 10 is pretty solid, mid level Italian. 312 Chicago is ok too.

      Trattoria !0 would also be my choice for Loop (midlevel) Italian, altho if you like Volare, you would probably also like Coco Pazzo Cafe nearby in Streeterville.

      I haven't eaten there lately, but I've always enjoyed the "La Cantina" room at Italian Village.
