This charming Italian restaurant is located in a small house in the downtown area. I would highly recommend reservations as they were packed the night we visited.

Walked here from Freemont St. Stepped inside and waited for assistance. Was looked at but not spoken to by two or three servers. Finally someone approached me and asked if he could help me. I told him I had 6 for dinner , to which he replied " Oh…ah…OK. You can sit ah… here ( pointing to the table at... More

Good food, Great waitstaff. Italian music, candlelight, checker tablecloths. Very quaint. Not a lot of parking but you can park on the street. No hustle and bustle like in a big restaurant.

We had a reservation for a Saturday night dinner. We arrived at the same time a few other parties did, so the owner came over and took our drink order to help the wait staff. He was so enjoyable telling us about the family tradition and the restaurant. Our meals were delicious. 2 of the 4 of us wanted the... More

This was a tough one for me. I liked the house. Small and intimate. It promised a home made pasta and Italian mama sweating in the kitchen kind of feel to it. Lots of love, you know. TLC...It was full of promise, this small house! They graciously accommodated our 18 person group. The waiter seemed like he WAS from Chicago,... More

My husband and I went here for my birthday - we recently moved back to Las Vegas after 20 years - 20 years ago we loved Chicago Joe's. We arrived at our reserved time and the host acted like he had no room and stuck us at a table by the backdoor - the restaurant is small and we understand... More

Looking for real Italian, in a spot that feels like home? This is it. Take it from a back east Italian food junkee! Hidden from the Vegas world but located in, the middle of it all, this is a local joint that will make your mouth water every time you hear the name. Just go already. Everything is awesome. Get...

Ate a late lunch here and everything was superb from the salad (excellent creamy garlic dressing) to our entrees (eggplant Parmesan and baked tortellini). We love to find good locally owned restaurants when visiting Vegas and this is a great one. The service was also very good. Will definitely come here again.

It used to be that you could rely on a neighborhood restaurant. Joe what happened to the quality home made Italian food you used to serve? Our eggplant Parm consisted of burned GRILLED eggplant slices with a topping of mozzarella... NOW THAT'S NOT ITALIAN. The Chicken Parm was just as bad; dry, grilled chicken cutlet with mozzarella cheese topping. The... More

This is a very cool, romantic restaurant. Small rooms and tables with candlelight. I would definitely recommend the linguini with red clam sauce. Yummy bread too. Make a reservation for dinner because the place is packed.
