Find Neighborhood Italian Eats at Tiu Steppi’s

The house specialty pizza with pancetta, sundried tomatoes and a “sea of cheese”


The restaurant’s few missteps came in the tortellini and the chicken cacciatore. Flavors were spot on, to be sure: The mushroom-heavy tortellini was earthy and rich, the tortellini filling was fresh spinach, but the pasta was tough and undercooked. Sitting atop a generous serving of Warner’s dreamy mashed potatoes (one of the few crossovers from Two Step), the rustic chicken cacciatore offering was paired with tenderly roasted onions and tomatoes, but my chicken could have spent a few more minutes on the burner.

Even so, as Tiu Steppi’s works out a few of kinks, my 30-minute wait points to signs that North Siders are a) willing to ditch Olive Garden, b) hungry for fresh neighborhood Italian and c) ready to go along for the ride.
