We went to a birthday celebration for a good friend. Hubby and I had never been been here before. We had about 30 in our group and dinner was served family style, so we got to try a variety of entrees. The pizza bread appetizer was very tasty. The salad had really fresh greens and was wonderful (how often do... More

We have been going to Jim & Pete's on and off for quite a long time, and have ordered for delivery as well, and for me, it's always a hit or miss. Although everyone else in my group had a great meal, mine was not so great. The whitefish francaise special as well as the neck bones with linguine specials... More

Good solid Italian Food. I really enjoy the Marsala and any of the fishes that this restaurant serves. Chicagoland had 1000's of Italian Restaurants and this one is in the top 10 for me because of their fresh ingredients and great atmosphere. One draw back is the parking situation....please read all signs before parking so that you do not get... More

Not sure how many years I've been eating here, but 25-30 is a realistic guess. Great pizza, interesting menu choices and specials. Servers always above and beyond. Don't miss this local gem.

As Italian restaurants go, this is a nice local place that gives one a nice variety of comfort food. The prices are reasonable, the food tastes good, and the quantities are very ample. Our regular favorites are the pizzas, the smelts and the veal piccatta.

Jim and Petes never disappoints ! I have been a patron of this restaurant since I was a child, the food is outstanding! I recently had their chicken Rivera which was a boneless breast served with a maraniara sauce, usually the arrabiatta sauce, which is a bit to spicy for my taste. It was delicious! Another member of our party... More

Jim and Petes has a the best thin crust around. I knew other places are more popular and flashy but Jim and Petes recipe and quality is right up there. They always deliver pipping hot pizza in a timely manner. Over the years their prices have gone up, but so has every other place on earth. Do yourself a favor... More

They offer fine Italian cuisine which is reflected on their extensive menu. You can't go wrong with anything you order. The ambiance is comfortable, service is great and you don't feel rushed even on a busy Saturday evening although I recommend reservations.

Having just been to--and reviewed--an upscale-style Italian restaurant in Chicago last week, we went to Jim and Pete's, a real neighborhood place, a few days later with good friends. While I can't comment on the experience of the previous reviewer (I've never seen the kind of thing he/she mentions, not ever, having dined here for over twenty years), I can... More
