  • Paul A.A Chicago institution. Old school Italian in unpretentious settings. Cash only!

  • Erika MFood was decent. Staff was friendly. Cash only. It kinda just tasted like homemade food though, so it didn't really feel worth going out to eat for me.

  • Louis KliegerSupposedly started because Al Capone attended Vernon's Tap and asked for food. The food was so good, he suggested they make a restaurant.

  • Simon & SchusterWhen pressed, the owners will admit that Tufano’s founder served as Capone’s personal chef. Is the eggplant parmigiana still made the way Capone liked it? Who knows? But it’s dangerously good.
