This popular family-run (and cash-only) restaurant at the eastern edge of Little Italy near the United Center has attracted a lot of neighborhood regulars (as well as celebrities and politicians) in the 80-plus years it has been here; check out the wall full of photos from such visitors as Dolly Parton, Dan Marino and Tommy Lasorda. Most-ordered dishes include eggplant parmesan, veal piccante and shells with broccoli. If you're looking to bring in the whole crew, ask about family-style options.
