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!

A true Gem

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... read 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

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!

I have been there five times and I always enjoyed the food. They have valet parking on weekends and always nice lights inside, which creates very nice and unique atmosphere. The food is very good. 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
