Jim and Pete's is my favorite Italian restaurant in the Western Chicago suburbs. The pizza is always good, the pasta is home made, and you can get a wide variety of sauces for the pasta. Full bar with several TV screens for sports, fast and super friendly service makes every visit a treat. We had dinner a couple of times,... More

I order from this restaurant at least once a month since it's not too far. I don't usually eat in because it is not that big and it gets crowded at times. It's an open floor plan with the bar in the middle so it could get a bit noisy. But the food is really good (I love their shrimp... More

We stopped in for lunch and were very glad we did! First note--the restaurant does not have its own parking lot and the businesses on each side will tow you if you park there when they're open. Not to worry though--the friendly hostess will help you find a space if you're not familiar with the area. They started us with... More

Fantastic Pizza.........and I know my pizza. My husband and I wanted to try someplace different so I remembered passing this Italian restaurant awhile ago. So last week we ventured to Elmwood Park and we were pleasantly surprised with their thin crispy crust..sauce was perfectly seasoned..... real cheese and the best sausage I can remember. The dining room was decorated very... More

When I visit my son in Chicago, we often have a meal at Jim and Pete's. The food is very good, the service is excellent, and the prices are very reasonable. We only get to Chicago once or twice a year. Even though she serves thousands of meals, and I am rarely in town, Ursala our waitress, walked up to... More

Loved, loved, loved Jim & Pete's. The place was jammed on a Sat night and we arrived right before our 7:30 reservation. They had our table waiting and when we explained that it was our first visit they made us feel like the four of us had been coming for years. The calamari/octopus salad was outstanding as was the flatbread... More

My husband and I live close by...have driven past countless times...heard good things...saw a Groupon for Jim and Pete's...and FINALLY had dinner there! It was crowded and we chose to sit at the bar to eat. It was delightful! We were among a huge crowd of people, all enjoying the food and atmosphere. My husband had one of the specials... More

I was at this restaurant yesterday.. The house salad was bland and tasteless.. The lobster ravioli with pesto sauce I had was lobster-less and made me sick all the way home. My mother and cousin had the marinara sauce was dry and bland and seemed to be thrown together.. When we sent the dish back the owner and manager not... More

We have been coming to Jim and Pete's practically since they opened, how many years ago? Well, more than twenty. I have ordered catered Christmas dinners from them (picked up the day before); traded recipes for lasagna with a waitress, and eaten more fabulous antipasto salads, baked clams, ravioli, and pizza than I can count. I LOVE the fresh, warm... More
