Sabatino's Restaurant - CLOSED

Sabatino's Restaurant Chicago Logo

~ Sabatinos Restaurant in Chicago Is Now Closed. ~ 
On Behalf of the Sabatino's family, thank you for your decades of patronage and keeping Sabatino's Chicago's #1 family Italian resturaunt.Here's to the next chapter. We hope everyone stays safe during these times. For now, you can find memories of Sabatino's here on our website here as well as Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Sabatino's is an anachronism that's hipper than you'd give it credit for. It is a snifter of brandy, a velvet smoking jacket, Buddy Rich's drum groove on "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy." It is "exquisite" and "quality" spoken with a thick Chicago accent, dressed to the nines in a bow tie and tuxedo vest.
  
It might also be voted Chicago's best restaurant if AARP The Magazine held a write-in poll, which is to say, the median hairstyle in the dining room is coiffed white. Sabatino's — Old Irving Park's venerable Italian restaurant for 40-plus years — has a menu reflecting its clientele's enduring tastes, with the kind of dishes sadly going the way of the dodo: shrimp DeJonghe, oysters Rockefeller, cherries jubilee, among other chestnuts.
  
The restaurant is so old, in fact, that co-owners (and brothers) Angelo and Enzo Pagni can't nail down an exact date, though they believe it's 1969. Back then, said Sabatino's office manager, Vickie Van Hove, "it was a spaghetti and meatball kind of place, nothing like it is now."
  
The Pagni brothers took a long boat ride from Genoa to New York City in 1966. Chicago was their destination. They were practically bambinos when they started cooking at Italian Village. After stops at other restaurants in town, they took over Sabatino's on Jan. 1, 1978. The key, Angelo Pagni said, was cooking a dish on that first day and having it taste exactly the same 33 years later. Customers here don't seek progress or innovation. They want reliability and nostalgia. "We have regulars who drive 30 miles to our restaurant, and that's a long way to come," Angelo Pagni said. "They make the extra mile to see you, you better be on the ball."

Paterno's Pizza

Paterno's Pizza Chicago Logo

Pizza, beef sandwiches & Italian basics in old-fashioned digs with a square bar, pool table & TVs. Family Owned For 3 Generations since 1954. Santo and Josephine Paterno came to this country in 1938 from Sicily with their two sons, Paul and John. They came to the United States in search of a better life. Santo worked with his brother and built a large business of a pizzeria and liquor store. Josephine worked as a seamstress. Santo and Josephine realized they wanted to have their own business. So in 1954 they went off on their own and opened a small liquor store on Central Avenue in Chicago. Over the years their business grew. They moved across the street to a larger store and in 1972 they built a liquor store at the corners of Central and Milwaukee Avenues. At the time Paterno Liquors was considered the largest liquor store in Chicago. For almost 20 years all the Paterno grandchildren worked with their fathers and grandparents from time to time. The dream of owning his own pizza place still lingered in Santo. In 1983, he took a portion of the liquor store and made a small carry out counter for pizza and sandwiches. Paterno Pizza was born. Every few years they expanded the pizza restaurant. By 1991 they had a full kitchen serving Santo and Josephine's homemade recipes consisting of pizza, pasta, beef, sausage, meatball, soups and much more. They also have a full service bar. At that time they decided to sell the liquor store and concentrate solely on the pizza restaurant. Since then the menu has grown extensively and made Paterno Pizza the home of the Incredible Beef, their signature sandwich, a juicy beef sandwich on garlic bread with melted mozzarella cheese. They also do catering on and off premise. A lot of things have changed since 1983. Paul and John are still there running the business with their daughters Rachale and JoJo. Josephine still has her hands in the business, literally making her sauces and soups. Still Santo and Josephine's dreams live on. Even with the passing of Santo in 2000, Paterno Pizza still and always has stood for good quality, fresh homemade Italian food. The Paterno Family is proud to be serving customers, at Central and Milwaukee Avenues, for over 50 years.
