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."

Second Generation

Second Generation Chicago Logo

We love being part of our vibrant community. And after some reflection, we're hoping to serve our neighborhood better and ourselves better, by slowing down, and evolving our beloved restaurant on the Square from fast service to full service. The lessons from the pandemic affirmed how much we love hospitality. We want to spend more time with you — our guests — and renew our commitment to connection. As we evolve this gem into a neighborhood bistro, we honor tradition, culture, and family with our new name — SECOND GENERATION. A nod to our upbringing and evolution, Second Generation resonates with the rich and layered identity of being raised in two cultures — both wholly American and wholly Asian —and what’s more American than being a child of immigrants. As restaurateurs, our multi-cultured experience has guided us as leaders in the industry for over a decade. We draw from this inheritance to steward our heritage. We believe cooking and sharing food is an act of love. We know Second Generation will be a great neighborhood place, a refuge for being present and in the moment for all of us. We look forward to hosting you, Edward, Vicki, Nate
