    This is Old School Italiano. Family style platters, checkerboard covers, run by the same family since 1952. Grab an Old Style and enjoy the Chicken Parm or Chicken Piccata. Nice wine selection, too!

    SOO GOOD. I recommend the Pasta Galassini for the vegetarian pasta dish and the Chicken Parmigiana. #nomnomnom

    Despite the old school facade, the food is beyond phenomenal and cheap for the city. Great service and a cute patio for lunch.

    Always get the meat sauce

    There aren't many restaurants that can boast a great Monday lunch crowd, but with simple Italian favorites and a lively atmosphere, I can see why Club Lago has always been a neighborhood favorite.

    Best pizza bread in Chicago.

    Great old school Italian atmosphere. Guido was a fantastic host. Pulled out an old photo album when my guest brought up an old waitress from 20years ago. Eggplant parm and sautéed broccoli a must

    More than a spot for food. The bar is possibly the best in the area.

    Despite new paint and new beer taps, the place looks exactly the same, so it’s easy to regress to old habits: massive portions of lasagna, watery carafes of Chianti and pasta with Lago’s meat sauce Read more

    If you're lucky, you may get the Betty Boop waitress

    Despite a renovation, it's still the same. Regress to old habits: massive portions of lasagna, soft roast beef, carafes of watery Chianti and—this is crucial—some pasta with Lago’s meat sauce. Read more

    Have the eggplant parm. Ask for Giancarlo (the co-owner, with his bro Guido). But, seriously, the eggplant parm.

    Go to Club Lago and start with the pizza bread & an Old Style, then order up some vino and the Chicken Piccante, then thank GianCarlo and Guido Nardini for being excellent hosts... Read more
