Classic Old Style Chicago Italian

G and G has been around forever and it is an icon in downtown Chicago. It's as if you walked into a time warp when you walk inside with the dark woods and red carpets. You would never come here for the décor. The upstairs is reminiscent of a scene from a mob movie and you can imagine nefarious... read more

We recently had a simply fantastic meal at G&G's. We started w/a lasagna w/great meat sauce, had a salad with old world wonderful italian dressing, and then a 20oz strip steak that was a beautiful piece of meat and cooked to perfection. I've been to all of the chain steak houses in the Country and none of them can come... More

when on a recommendation of business colleagues. It was a step back into time with the location, and layout of restaurant. Really felt like Capone would walk in any minute. Food was reasonable price for a joint like this. They did offer a Chefs special menu that had a lovely selection to choose from. I had the special chicken, and... More

We came to Gene & Georgetti's on the recommendation of our concierge, who also made us a reservation for 7:00 pm on the Monday between Christmas and New Years. You enter into the bar area, hang up your coats to the right side of the door, and then walk along the bar to the end to find the hostess. The... More

This was my second time dining at Gene & Georgetti's and have been happily satisfied both times. I enjoy the old charm dining experience that doesn't feel pretentious as other steakhouses can be. The portions are family-style so bring a few mouths or be prepared to be stuffed.

We always talked of going to Gene and Georgetti. We wanted a steak dinner late afternoon and to our surprise they were the only steak house serving at that time. We were delighted with our visit. The ambiance was great with the dark wood walls, reminiscing a time past, a relaxing atmosphere. The place filled up as time went on.... More

Gene and Georgetti is busy and a bit crowded while you wait to be seated. The waiters are helpful and have been working at the restaurant for decades. Large portions that are good to share and each meal comes with a tossed salad and cottage fried potatoes. The dining area is also noisy which is fine for friends dinner, but... More
