Wonderful restaurant!

Linguini and meatballs are excellent and the meatballs are huge. Price was very reasonable. Service was very good also. I loved it. Should you be in the neighborhood, and you're hungry, this is the place to eat.

I have tried Chicago Italian beef in other Louisville eateries but none can compare with Comeback Inn, authentic Chicago style Italian beef, got to get it with provolone and giardiniera. And if you want something off the wall, try the Italian Hot Brown, OK, Louisvillians, it is not really a Hot Brown, but it does have turkey, tomatoes, pancetta instead... More

The Come Back Inn is a crowded, noisy local spot. That being said, I absolutely LOVE their food and their attitude. I always have the Italian wontons, but the pizza and sandwiches are also outstanding! Best sauce I've had in a while, and they sell it by the bottle to take home. Just don't go if you want to have...

Let me preface this review by saying this is an old Neighbood bar that serves food. The interior needs serious attention and there are holes in the ceiling and the carpeting is old and there is still 1970's panelling on the walls. basically, it is a dump. However, the owner is behind the bar, friendly and on the ball. Service... More

We stopped in for drinks and stayed for dinner. We'd planned to go to a different resturant down the street and stopped in for a drink while we waited for our table. After looking at the menu and taking in the aromas, we changed our plans and stayed. Great pasta dishes all around and really yummy salads. The staff could... More

My wife and I were looking for a quick and cheap meal last Saturday and we ended up at Come Back Inn. We split the Procuitto Mozzerella Won Tons to start. The WonTons are terrific , but it's the Marinara Sauce that make this ap a real winner. My wife had the Linguini and Marinara entree and she loved it!... More

We had dinner at the Come Back Inn in late-November 2014 when they hosted Dine Out For Life, an annual event across the city (and held in many cities on various dates throughout the year) that raising funds for HIV/AIDS-related charities. I had dined at Come Back Inn many times, but it had been a while since my last visit.... More

Not a very large restaurant, cozy. I had pasta with meatballs (large) and marinara sauce - taste homemade. My husband had crab cakes which were very good also. Prompt service. Nice bar selection.

I am a transplanted Chicago native who has AT LEAST one Italian Beef from Portillos every time I visit. This is one of the best I have found outside of Northern Illinois. This is the sandwich responsible for a certain style of eating - LEANING. The thing is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO juicy when made correctly that you need to stand at a... More
