    Sabatino's has quite the Italian charm with drifting musicians, dim lighting, and tuxedoed servers. The vibe is complete with authentic Italian dishes from the Chicken Vesuvio to their Baked Alaska. Read more

    Pasta is Not over cooked💃🏼. Wine list is great. Garlic is plentiful. Tiramisu is real and homemade shrimp, veal and beef are all wonderful. Service has always been above average when I was there

    Its Irving Park neighborhood has changed over the years, but the huge portions, generous wine pours and jovial staff (many still speaking with a discernable accent of the motherland) remain. Read more

    Their meat sauce is out of this world delicious & creamy! Order in the homemade ravioli or even on top of the cheesy pizza bread! Tasty!

    Classic Chicago joint serves solid Italian-American dishes, but most people visit for the old school charm and roving musicians.

    Shrimp De Jonghe is fresh, ricotta-filled gnocchi in meat sauce won’t disappoint, and the New York strip is seasoned only with salt and pepper before hitting the grill for a spot-on medium rare. Read more

    Couples should snag a booth, the perfect spot for sipping a bottle of Chianti and enjoying signature cheesy garlic bread. Ricotta-filled manicotti and gnocchi in meat sauce won’t disappoint. Read more

    Food is average but Oysters Rockeller are worth the trip alone. They are the best in Chicago. A large and loud restaurant that's been around forever. Great for parties. Something homey & charming.

    "Old School" Italian American restaurant. Order anything, it's all tried and true, tested, because this place has been around forever. Save room for baked Alaska or bananas foster.

    If you are in the mood for pasta,order the spinach gnocchi (Gnocchi di Spinaci). It comes in an alfredo sauce with bits of asparagus and prosciutto.
