I had a business dinner on a weeknight and Gene & Georgettis. It is the typical Italian steakhouse from the 40s and 50s. The menu is laminated, the service is average but the food was pretty good. The decor was cramped and probably had not been updated since 1941.

The wine list was poor. The veal chop I had was a huge portion and was very good. I also had a classic minestrone and a very good fried ravioli with meat sauce. I would downgrade this meal or the service and decor but the food made up for the other two areas of issue.

We were in Chicago for a wedding which coincided with my husband's birthday. I planned a surprise dinner for him with cousins who were attending the wedding. It was recommended by one of the guests, the mother of the bride, who insisted we experience a taste of "old Chicago".
We were very pleased with the ambiance, service, and especially the excellent steaks for which they are known. We were also treated to a bit of Chicago history by our waiter who showed us where Al Capone dined.

Whenever I go here, it just feels old school Chicago from the 40s and 50s. Food is good. Service is very good. I like this place and would recommend it.

Reservations made easy, Staff very attentive,Best Beef anywhere. Done to perfection. The Garbage Salad is a must, probably want to split it. Creamed spinach good. Not a fan of them serving sliced potatoes with every meal, but........... Nice selection of wines. Don't forget the desserts too. We will be back!
