The service wasn't the best and we were the only ones there. I think that would be an area for improvement

The carbonara was too saucy and heavy, and the arrabbiata sauce was only spicy because of the sausage.

From Our Editors

What happens when an Australian vacationer in Chicago intends to stay for three weeks, but accidentally befriends a chef and goes into business with him? The answer is Bar Forza. The aforementioned chef, Mario Giuseppe Mentesana, comes fresh from the kitchens of two five-star restaurants in Florence, drawing on South Italian tradition to craft authentic red sauces with San Marzano tomatoes. Chef Mentesana uses these sauces on traditional pastas and gourmet pizzas, including the rigatoni ballanti with Sicilian meatballs and the salsiccia e cipolle pie with homemade spicy Italian sausage. He also crafts burgers and paninis to satisfy those who like their handheld fare between bread slices.

As Chef Mentesana works his magic in the kitchen, bartenders shake martinis, pour on-draft craft beer, and effortlessly catch full glasses of wine as they periodically drop from the dining room's high, tin ceiling. Like the Bar Forza team, these wines come from across the world, hailing from vineyards in Italy, Australia, South America, New Zealand, and the U.S..
