It might be located inside Chicago Winery, but you can still have a great time at Liva even if you don't care about wine. Liva’s perfectly cooked pastas are delicious, like pillowy ricotta ravioli or lamb tagliatelle with rich squash sugo. Their small plates are also great, like the smoky grilled shrimp, or the duck breast with porcini brodo. And if you are into wine, the knowledgeable staff is happy to talk about varietals and the ideal pairings for each dish. The spacious dining room is bright and good for a casual group dinner while still being nice enough for date night. But if you want some alone time with a bowl of pasta at the bar, that works too.
