Our sweeping dining room is the very definition of opulence. With our two-raised tiers featuring wrap-around booths, and our hand-painted dome, our main dining room seats 140 and is the ultimate location for all your party and dining needs.

"The snow and ice changed our original plans to dine elsewhere. IBIS turned out to be a comfortable restaurant. Seating and service were great, but, in context, few guests dined there because of the weather. We were pleasantly surprised by the food. Steak tender and flavorful, and the fish perfectly seasoned and cooked just at the right temperature. Appetizers of grilled octopus and a dish of grilled marinated shrimp were off the chart delicious. Our server was engaging and attentive. Service was also timely. The only disappointment was dessert-- a big slice of an apple pie (menu listed it as an apple tart) served cold. Not very tasty and unimaginative. But everything else, including the Turkish wine, was sublime."

Guests can anticipate cuisine from Chef Roberto Donna’s home region of Piemonte, Italy with a focus on the town of Alba. Guests can anticipate an expansive salumi and formaggi counter, plus a selection of antipasti, house-made pastas (available in small and large portions), and Neapolitan pizzas. A variety of daily specials displayed in “Italian sized” portions will also be available for sharing in the traditional Piemontese fashion.

"Themenu is not expansive, but everything we had, including the bread in the breadbasket was very good. the large chopped salad was tasty but a bit overdressed. (What is it with restaurants and salad dressing? Does everybody have a leaded hand? Jeez!) Went on a Tuesday night, and lucky for us wine was half off. Wine menu is stellar so that was a lucky streak. Pasta special--lamb ragu--was the bomb. off the charts good. the chicken entree was superb. the pork tenderloin, a bit overcooked and not enough of it, to be candid. The restaurant is at 4th and I, Nothing else is around there, really. I suppose they are waiting on the neighborhood to change. The restaurant is large and upscale, but really off the beaten path. well worth the trip, though."

Fiola, Fabio Trabocchi's modern Italian Trattoria, features Italian cuisine with an emphasis on fresh local ingredients from our farms and markets. The menu will change constantly focusing on seasonal ingredients.

"Great service on NYE and dinner (price fixed with multiple courses) was one of the best I've ever had the pleasure to enjoy, and so said my two companions. It would be hard to say enough about the quality of the service and the deliciousness of the food (and precision of the kitchen). Every thing was just so. Although it was one of the priciest meals I've ever had ($175 pp), not including a $120 bottle of wine, it was sublime and the occasion called for it. Presentation was wonderful for each course, and our server was just right for the evening: helpful, attentive, friendly, and very professional. I'd love to see how the kitchen performs when it isn't NYE, but it knocked our socks off."
