Welcome to Sabatinos a beautiful old school Italian restaurant with delcious food and great ambieance. You get bread including focaccia - a kind of pizza bread, then a salad and soup, then an entree - try the veal Parmesan, and a side of pasta. Many recommend the baked Alaska dessert. Sabatino"s is dimly lit with flowers on every table, this Italian-American restaurant has been the perfect date restaurant for about 25 years. Diners might have their steak or seafood entrees complemented by the serenade of strolling musicians in the main room or piano music in the bar area. Angelo Pagni, who owns the restaurant with his brother, Enzo, said Sabatino's is popular in the neighborhood for a lot of reasons, food and atmosphere and chief among them. Stop in today!

For the last several years, this has been our family's go-to place for special celebrations (birtrhdays, graduations, etc.). It is a classic old-style Italian restaurant with enough choices on the menu to meet anyone's desires and an old-school wait staff -- very efficient, helpful and with a good sense of humor. All the entrees we have tried have been outstanding.... More

We have been eating at Sabo's for over 30 years and never had a bad meal, the owners are always there to greet you and at your beckon call. Try the Steak Diane or Cherries Jubilee prepared tableside!

Last time I had a fish - Orange Roughy. Unbelievable!!! It was the best fish I have EVER eaten! If you are there, you have... More

On my last visit to Chicago, I wanted to go to an old school Italian restaurant, like the kind I grew up with. After a little research, I decided we would head over to Sabatino's. I was not disappointed! This place has the real thing: handmade, classic Italian food. Starting with the pizza bread appetizer then on to the homemade... More
