Red Sauce Italian

  • 90

Italian-American farmhouse fare sets the comforting tone at Charlatan from the Three Aces team. This former West Town Tavern spot has transformed into a casual, candlelit space with a wrap-around, tufted booth and game heads mounted on the wall. Highlights include housemade pasta like black pepper rigatoni with wild boar ragu, paired with pints from their curated domestic craft beer list, but save room for a semifreddo sundae with nutella hot fudge, pan forte and honeycomb.
