Stop by this expansive Sicilian-style eatery's brick-walled, lowly lit dining room or bar and you're likely to see a mix of neighborhood residents and longtime customers who keep coming back to the restaurant, open since 1945, for its traditional Italian entrees. The restaurant, located on the south end of Albany Park, serves classics like chicken parmesan and thin crust, pan and stuffed pizza -- this is Chicago, after all -- plus homemade cheese sticks, cheesecake and chocolate cake. Come for dinner, and you'll get an additional pre-meal perk: Freshly baked bread, olive oil and parmesan cheese are brought to every table by a member of Manzo's staff -- many of whom, much like the eatery's customers, have been with the restaurant for 10-30 years.
