When Billy Lawless Does Lakeview…

Average Reviews


“Chicago has a new Italian restaurant.” Hmm. Let’s try that again… “Chicago has a new Italian restaurant from Billy Lawless boasting vodka-and-prosecco slushies, rosemary ham Neapolitan pizzas and local hogs butchered in-house. Also, this slideshow contains prosciutto meatballs.” Much better. You may now proceed to Coda di Volpe, a new establishment that’s open right now in the Southport Corridor. More likely than not, this’ll involve you and a few good friends huddled around a tan leather booth facing Southport, sharing those prosciutto meatballs and a plate of Italian salumi (they have a curing room) before diving into the real thing. “The real thing” being a round of good Italian beers and a pizza that’s been wood-fired in a tiled oven imported from Naples and topped with things like Calabrian chili and fennel sausage. Or one of four deeply cared-for pastas including a squid ink garganelli with salt-cured tuna heart. Or a Berkshire pork chop derived from a Midwestern hog they butchered right back there in the kitchen. In conclusion: you’re never not eating Italian anymore.
