There are dozens of Italian restaurants in Chicago, but only a small percentage go that extra mile and make all of their pastas in-house from scratch. A new restaurant in the West Loop is committed to hand-making everything, including one pasta dish that has become a personal favorite.
When Sarah Grueneberg left Spiaggia, she took with her years of experience making pasta from scratch. Her frequent trips to Italy resulted in creating two pasta sections on the menu of her new restaurant: classic and modern. And there's one dish on that classic side that blew me away. Say "bongiorno" to tortelloni.
