Pestos is one of the best Italian restaurants I have had the pleasure of dining in. The menu changes seasonably, so there is always something new on the menu. The drinks are delicious and, seriously, I could live on their breadsticks.

We always know what to expect when we visit Pesto's, delicious food and great service! This past visit I was especially pleased with the bus service.

Pestos has an authentic homey feel yet food that rivals any Chicago restaurant. Outstanding service but reservations are recommended esp on weekends snd Wednesdays for pasta buffet. Affordable prices and lots of selection. Generous portions include salad or soup..and bread with oil.
