My healthy foodie friend Lindsey suggested Mambo Italiano in Mundelein. Through Lindsey's whole Food Revolution craze, she befriended the owner who also loves to cook from scratch using real foods.
After a trip to the mall in Vernon Hills, I decided to take my parents to Mambo for a quick lunch. The authentic Italian food did not disappoint. I loved the minestrone and Julie and Johnny scarfed down the lasagna.
Next time we'll stay for dinner and enjoy a bottle of wine or two.
