The Dover Sole at Sabatino's was the best I've ever eaten . Perfectly prepared and delicious! Melted in your mouth. Highly recommended.

Went here for the first time to celebrate my daughter's birthday. I liked it from the moment we walked in the door. It was a walk back into a 1960's or 70's Italian restaurant. Very welcoming and it made me feel like I was walking into a family restaurant. You can feel the history. The menu has more than enough... More

Old school Italian with lots of menu choices. Excellent service, great food, free valet parking. I have been coming here for many years but not recently. We started coming back on weekends to enjoy the music in the lounge. Friendly patrons enjoying fun music. Robert is talented and friendly. This is not your normal downtown spot. A neighborhood gem that... More

Five Star Service awaits you at this classic Italian Steakhouse ! This is the place your parents took you after your graduation. We shared appetizers Oysters Rockefeller & Shrimp Dijon and they were outstanding. The house specialty Creamy Garlic made the house salad come to life. I split the Chateau Briand with my daughter and the beef was so tender... More

We went to Sabatino's for a birthday dinner and everyone including the birthday girl really enjoyed their meal and their experience at Sabatino's. The service is great from the moment that you sit down, as you are brought bread, pizza bread and bruschetta. Everyone got something different, as the menu is pretty expansive, not including their daily specials. I had... More

Every dish I ever had there (in 35 years) has been perfect. Old school interior, violinist and guitar playing at your table, Gnocchi and Chicken parmigiana are to die for.

Sabatino's is not just a restaurant it's a trip back to Chicago of the fifties. I almost expected the Rat Pack to walk in at any moment and I'm sure some of the guys from the Sopranos were sitting on the next table ! One thing is certain - you won't go hungry. Whilst perusing the menu a large loaf... More

Welcome to Sabatinos a beautiful old school Italian restaurant with delcious food and great ambieance. You get bread including focaccia - a kind of pizza bread, then a salad and soup, then an entree - try the veal Parmesan, and a side of pasta. Many recommend the baked Alaska dessert. Sabatino"s is dimly lit with flowers on every table, this Italian-American restaurant has been the perfect date restaurant for about 25 years. Diners might have their steak or seafood entrees complemented by the serenade of strolling musicians in the main room or piano music in the bar area. Angelo Pagni, who owns the restaurant with his brother, Enzo, said Sabatino's is popular in the neighborhood for a lot of reasons, food and atmosphere and chief among them. Stop in today!
