Monastero's Ristorante & Banquets
A younger generation of the Monastero clan totes dishes laden with culinary labors of love perfected in the time since Joe Monastero founded Monastero’s Ristorante, now celebrating its 50-year anniversary. Imported Sicilian wines partner with plates piled with house-made pastas and from-scratch feasts wrought from decades-old family recipes. Twelve hand-painted shields showcase the foreign conquerors who left their culinary mark and business-casual armor on Sicily, and a painting of the castle in the Monastero’s hometown transports diners to that sun-soaked land with the aid of live entertainment on weekends.
Monastero's has been a restaurant that my family loves going to for family dinners when we all convene in Chicago.Liliane D., Yelp, 1/3/13
This establishment is about as old school as you can get. I am thinking that is one of the reasons why I like it so much.Dave S., Yelp, 8/21/12
