good italian food

the owner is the operator, and the restaurant is typical old school Italian; small and open with tables close to each other. the food is good and fairly authentic, but I think it is tailored to an Evansville market, which means it lacks the menu selections you would see in a big city.

We had high hopes for DiLegge's, but we were underwhelmed. On the bright side, meat sauce appeared home made and was tasty. A little too sweet for us, but the effort was appreciated. Lasagna was pretty good, but not warm all the way through. Eggplant Parm. was average, with the cheese being heavy handed. Chicken Forester was good. Stuffed mushrooms... More

Love this little place, Old and needs remodeled but almost part of experience. The food is great, the portions are large and the staff is helpful. Definitely worth investigating. The backed pasta and parmesan dishes are our favorites

I have lived in Evansville for 15 years and didn't know about Dilegge's until a friend gave me a gift card. My wife and I went for lunch on a Thursday. We arrived at 11:55 and were seated immediately. The waitress and waiter were very attentive and worked as a team and were very friendly. The menu had a good... More

I had the 1/2 Grinder which is served with a pickle spear and chips. I chose the Italian Sausage, which had just enough heat. Hadn't been there in a while. If you're the neighborhood, it's worth stopping.

We enjoy going to Dilegge's. Great food especially if you like rich hearty meat sauce on your pasta (with a bit of sweetness). House salad dressing is really good Italian vinaigrette. Baked ziti is one of my favorites. Sometimes service can be spotty but all in all, we recommend it. (Recently came about 6:00 and there was a large party... More

This is a small intimate restaurant with truly outstanding Italian dining. Portions are enough for the average person. Full bar and wine selection. Service is outstanding with knowledgeable staff. The sauces here are some of the best in the Midwest. Cozy setting on the north Main street area. They do have outdoor seating in the spring and summer. Prices are... More

This is an Evansville landmark of sorts. Locals love it and the food is really good - like you'd expect from a neighborhood place in an Italian part of town. Though the neighborhood isn't Little Italy you can't help but feel its spirit here. We stopped in before a show with friends. The guys had linguine with clam sauce -... More

People told me about Dilegge's and how great the food was. We decided to go on a Friday. We have heard weekends are crowded. We ordered the cheese sticks which are home made. They were ok but the marinara was very good. For entrees we had lasagna and the forrester chicken. The lasagna was like nothing you will get in... More

We met for lunch recently at this classic style Evansville restaurant. My mother considers herself a bit of an expert on eggplant Parmesan and declared theirs to be the best she had ever had! My baked ziti was some of the best I had ever tasted. Hope to get back there again!
