“It is always a pleasure to dine at Trattoria Demi. Everything is always delicious and the menu is quite extensive for a smaller establishment. The service is lovely and the staff are especially good with kids. Love that they also have gluten-free and whole wheat pasta options, too!”
“Outstanding authentic Italian food, prepared with great attention to flavor. Owner is hands on and clearly cares about her diner’s overall experience. Small, intimate room where you can be comfortable. A truly satisfying dining experience.”
“One of the best romantic date night spots in Evanston! (Also great for a cozy evening with family &/or friends.) The ambience is one of my favorite aspects of this spot – it’s small & intimate, and inside they have twinkle lights & Italian music playing. The service is wonderful – the servers are some of the friendliest I’ve encountered anywhere. A gem in the Evanston area!”
“I was walking around the square in Evanston and came upon Trattoria Demi. It reminded me of some places in Italy I had been to. 5 stars!”
