Only one thing keeps Sabatino's from an excellent rating, crowded tables. Their food is excellent, service very good, ambience is old fashioned comfortable. Come into Nonna's dining room.

What a pleasant dining experience. We were with a couple who had never been there. We all loved the atmosphere, service, and the food. We ordered broiled whitefish, lasagna, chicken sabatino, and orange roughy. We were trying to decide which dinner was the best - and concluded they were all delicious. Dinner includes pizza bread, bread, soup (we all ordered... More

Miss the old time Italian restaurant? Then go to Sabatino's and enjoy traditional Italian fare in an authentic setting. Great food, large menu and good service. Dinners include soup, salad and a side dish like pasta. All this for a reasonable price with free valet parking. Reservations advised.

We have been eating at Sabo's for over 35 years, the service and food is always wonderful, they have lunch specials everyday M-F. And dinners our great, hot bread, soup, salad, (try the creamy garlic) steaks that melt in your mouth along with top notch Italian dishes.

On a recent visit to Chicago to see our daughter, her boyfriend was in charge of restaurant selection and he certainly didn't disappoint! While he'd never been to Sabatino's, he suggested that it was 'old school Italian', so we were game. Arriving without a reservation, we thought we might be turned away. We were seated in a timely fashion in... More

Sabatino's is awesome. The service is superb, the food is out of this world, and they make you feel like family. A definite stop for dinner while in the Windy City.

If you enjoy a good Italian dinner you will love this restaurant. We ordered salmon with wild rice; also, veal piccata with mostaccioli. The meal also includes soup (we ordered pasta fagiole) and a house salad. Everything was delicious, including the rolls. This was a fine dining experience with friends.

Four of us made reservations and went for a friend's birthday dinner; we got there early (4:30) on a Saturday. The place was already busy. The food was absolutely fresh, delicious and plentiful. We had the stuffed chicken breast with baked potato, chicken marsala, salmon and farfalle basciaola. Before dinner, we were served delicious bread and pizza bread (complementary). The... More
