In 1976, an empty Elmhurst storefront became the conduit for chef Angelo Battaglia’s culinary dreams when he founded Two Brothers from Italy Ristorante & Pizzeria with his wife, Rosalia. Now grown to four times its original size, the restaurant still serves up Angelo’s original recipes, prepared under the guidance of the Battaglias' daughter, Joanne. The voluminous menu swaps between pizzas peppered with 29 different toppings and pastas served with your choice of 10 noodles and eight sauces. Waiters ferry each plate beneath rounded archways into a dining room whose white tablecloths and floral accents radiate refinement. Private party specials, including a seven-course family-style meal, feed clusters of 25 or more without the need to pry off an asteroid-sized chunk of the moon's cheese.
The owners of Fratello's Family Restaurant and Pizzeria make themselves as visible outside the restaurant as they do inside. Take, for example, their support of Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 by entering a buffalo-chicken pizza in the district office's 2012 Top Pizza Night, where it won Best Specialty Pizza. They also build Fratello's image through similar efforts, from serving as the exclusive caterer of Pump It Up Elmhurst to bringing concessions to local events, such as hockey games or family comedy roasts. Back at the restaurant, chefs mold dough into the bases of thin-crust, pan, or stuffed-crust pizza, and prepare classic Italian and American dishes.
The chefs at Michael Anthonys Pizza sprinkle more than two dozen ingredients atop pizza crusts to ensure that no taste buds are left unsatisfied. Toppings include pineapples for those who love sweet things, jalapenos for those who love spice, and Canadian bacon for those who love a good John Candy joke. While thin crust, pan, and stuffed pizzas bake to a golden finish, the chefs busy themselves layering cheese and sauce with lasagna noodles or slathering barbecue sauce onto full or half slabs of baby back ribs. A number of sandwiches also festoon the menu, including housemade Italian beef and char-grilled Italian sausage on fresh baked French bread.
La Tosca features authentic Italian cuisine and pizza made using the highest quality and freshest ingredients. Italy is known for more than just the cuisine, which is why we offer the finest Italian wines to compliment your meal.
The chefs at Mr. G's Restaurant work from an extensive menu of house-made American comfort fare. All day, they dole out classic breakfast dishes such as omelets, skillets, and waffles, sating early risers, late risers, and seasonal hibernators. For lunch and dinner, the chefs adorn thin-crust pizzas with fresh meats and vegetables and make sandwiches cushioned by onion rolls and seven-grain bread.
When it's not hosting weddings and other monumental events in its elegant banquet hall, Villa Nova treats everyday diners to a taste of celebration with a menu of traditional Italian cuisine served in its dedicated restaurant. Beneath the dark beams of a vaulted ceiling, diners cozy up to white-clothed tables to savor steaming platters of saucy pastas, veal and chicken parmigiana, and pizzas adorned with traditional toppings such as tomato and basil or modern ingredients such as barbecue chicken and emoticons. Guinness and Blue Moon pour from taps in the softly lit bar, where drink specials and arcade games keep revelers entertained into the night.
Even if Gulliver's ovens went cool and the warm-weather chatter on its back patio went silent, visitors would still be drawn through the unassuming façade to witness the sights inside. Dozens of antique lamps from the 19th and early 20th centuries hang from the walls, casting a delicate light on the restaurant's cozy, wood-and-leather interior. Fortunately for hungry patrons, the kitchen continues to operate 47 years after its founding, quieting stomachs' growls with its take on Chicago-style deep-dish pizza. After slapping a mound of their housemade dough into the pan, chefs carefully contour the crust to leave thick, chewy edges and a thin, golden bottom. Next, layers of cheese, are topped using fresh ingredients. Pub-goers can also enjoy a tasty cornucopia of Italian soups, fresh salads, sandwiches, 100% Angus beef burgers, wings, and entrees sates pizza-averse diners.
