Chopped Salad is to die for!.
I love this place. I've only been there twice, but I feel like I'm a regular. Excellent service; the waitresses are kind and very patient with large groups and kids. The decor is trendy and welcoming and the food is exquisite! I am enamoured with the chopped salad (you can even hear it being made if it's not too busy). Perfect for a date, a family outing, a birthday, anything. Three thumbs up!
Can't compare it with Olive Garden.
Louise's has amazing food, olive garden has mass processed american italian food. Louise's has homemade, made-to-order food. Not to mention, the consistancy of how wonderful the food taste. Louise's has usually a delicable unique speical for a reasonable price. Olive garden should not be considered Italian, if you want Italian, go for original not mass produced. I worked at olive garden for 4 years and thought there would was good. But then I went to Louise's and can't compare how wonderful Louises' food is! Enjoy
One of the best Italian Restaurants I've been to. And, we've been to many good ones in Chicago. A mocha must cap every meal, preceded by ANY pasta entree and a heaping portion of fresh bread dipped in an oil/balsasmic mixture. Sit outside and enjoy Jazz in the Park, Thursdays in the summer or dine outside any summer day for that matter! This is a must stop at place for those visiting and a home away from home for those who live here.
