Giuseppe "Joe" Scalzo had to turn down his first opportunity to manage a restaurant, a small trattoria in Calabria he'd been working in as he attended school. He had spent his entire professional career working in Tuscan eateries and wanted the job, but his educational path led him to Chicago's Loyola University in pursuit of a business degree. It didn't take him long to realize that the thing he missed most about home was working in a restaurant. With his newly acquired business acumen, he began his foray into opening Italian restaurants: first Piazza Bella, then Via Carducci, and finally his most recent labor of love, Ciao Bella Ristorante. The kitchen is nestled behind a black-and-white photographic mural, which hints at the sunshine that sparkles along the Mediterranean coastline. Greenery flanks the piece, providing contrast along with the warm, saturated red walls painted with real marinara sauce. As guests revel under dim lighting amid the elegant atmosphere, plates of carefully crafted Italian cuisine arrive at tables alongside traditional thin-crust pizza. The restaurant recently expanded its bar and lounge areas and added a new banquet area for private parties that can seat up to 70. Joe's personal favorite pie is the quattro stagioni, for its savory blend of prosciutto, artichokes, and black olives.

At Jalapenos Mexican Restaurant's two locations, familiar enchiladas and corn tamales draped in rich chili sauces pour from the kitchen on rainbow-colored fiesta ware, which also delivers house specialties such as prawns saut?ed with dungeness crab and vegetables and Cancun tacos filled with halibut and pico de gallo. Burgers and chicken strips provide a similarly hearty alternative to deep-fried chimichangas packed with beef, chicken, or pork chile verde, which is also available by the bowlful. The cantina's design adds to a festive atmosphere, its tangerine walls painted to resemble an arcade overlooking the sea and its carved, wooden chairs painted to resemble the hollowed-out burritos that carried the conquistadors across it.

Miguel Mexican Fusion Grill's chefs combine international dishes and Mexican zest into a fusion menu. Diners can whet appetites with mexican egg rolls, filled with refried beans, chorizo, and cheese ($6), then forge ahead to sautéed shrimp skinny dipping in garlic-butter-lime sauce ($15), their shrimp suspenders and top hats abandoned in the kitchen. Steak-fajita fanatics can pack the carne asada's tortillas with a mélange of meat, sautéed onion, and red and green poblano pepper, topped with a shot of tequila for flavor ($13). Like a dozen identical children, a dozen homemade tamales ($15) are hard to take care of alone, but brave patrons can try. Little ones can order from a menu for visitors 10 years old and younger, and diners can nibble at their leisure from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays-Wednesdays and from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. or later Thursdays-Saturdays.
