Fodor's Review

The name means "game" in Italian, and the restaurant fulfills the promise not with venison, but in the spirit of having fun. The decor is distressed-urban, with brick walls and well-worn hardwood floors—the space is said to have been used by the Chicago gangsters of early 1900s as a gambling house. But the menu is comfort-Italian, with dishes ranging from pizzas and homemade linguine with Manila clams to rustic fare like grilled Colorado lamb chops, and roasted branzino with puttanesca sauce. It's a cozy, neighborhoody spot that keeps the regulars coming back.
