[serving highland park since 1968]
Folliero's looks small on the outside, but is larger once you're inside. The decor is simple, quaint: exposed brick walls adorned with old pictures of the neighborhood, dim lighting, salt + pepper and parmesean + pepper shakers at each table. It was a packed night; there were four groups ahead of us! But the wait was worth it:
[parmigiana di melanzane; garlic bread; gnocchi]
And it was totally affordable. Downright cheap, even. Our waiter was very pleasant; it looked like a lot of the patrons weren't first-timers by any means. This restaurant is now definitely on the Visit Again list!
Three for three: not bad, innit?
I'm totally up for recommendations, too, so speak up, these ears are open! Bon appetites!
