“Best Italian Beef in Chicago area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

AND... The ONLY competition to Home Run Inn (my favorite) for pizza.

Great family-owned restaurant - I hate going to chains.
Great service, large portions (it took 8 of us to finish their largest pizza), at great prices.

“Great Veal Parmigiana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

I've been eating here for over 30 years and just love their veal parmigiana--it is so good!
They recently remodeled the interior and it looks better than ever.
They also have a lunch buffet during weekdays for a very reasonable price. The buffet consist of an extensive salad bar, pizza(one is cheese;the other is sausage) and 3 entrees of the day.
Naturally, it is all you can eat. Also, they have a good wine list.

“When you want AWESOME Italian food, go to Al's Restaurant in Cicero!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

Al's Restaurant has the BEST lasagna I've ever had!!! Actually, anything I've had on their menu is excellent!!! I've never been disappointed in the 25 years that I've been going there. They've also got a fried chicken dinner that is absolutely out of this world!!! They do carry out and delivery!!! Also, they've got a banquet hall right next door that is great for weddings, office Christmas parties, etc... Same food so you know it's awesome!!!!

“Best Pizza in Chicagoland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We now live in Florida but would not dream of visiting family without going to Al's for their fantastic pizza. I have been going there for over 40 years. The pizza is exceptional but the staff makes you feel like family. Most of them have worked there for many, many years. Their Lunch Buffet cannot be beat in taste or value. Thank you for being what restaurants used to be !
