A taste of cooking from the four Italian grandmothers you never had is headed to River North in early summer. Piccolo Sogno Due (340 N. Clark St., River North), sibling restaurant to Piccolo Sogno, will close at the end of April to reconcept into the more casual Nonnina.
"Nonnina is influenced by our grandmothers—all four of them," says chef/partner Tony Priolo. He and co-owner Ciro Longobardo brought in Chris Macchia (Pizza Barra, Coco Pazzo) as executive chef/partner to helm the restaurant. The fourth partner/grandson is former Due manager Riccardo Brizuela, who will oversee the front of house.
