D'Amato's in West Town is known for its homemade pastries and other sweets--the bakery makes and sells roughly 1,000 cannolis a week. However, many Chicagoans have also sampled D'Amato's crunchy-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside bread, baked in a coal-fueled brick oven, at restaurants across the city. The bakery also offers thick, Italian-style pizza squares and a thin crust margherita pie. A few counter seats let diners munch on their chocolate-, caramel- and nut-topped turtle cookies and other items inside; in early September, an outdoor cafe on the side of the building will offer seating for about a dozen.
