Italian Restaurants in Evergreen Park

Select Local Merchants

Tossing pizzas and slinging Italian fare in Evergreen Park since 1980, the Barraco family has since extended its cheese-drenched reach across south and west Chicagoland with the help of a winsome menu. Deep-dish pizza ($12.30–$18.55) floods a dough basin with Olympic size pools of cheese and other mix-'em-ins. Diners embark on transatlantic journeys with each bite of the Around the World pizza ($10.95–$22.30), with a gustatory Baedeker of sausage, mushrooms, onions, and green peppers. Because it takes 25–30 minutes for pizzas to bake and compose adequate love sonnets to ovens, parties can quell impatient bellies with a roster of appetizers, such as fried and stuffed artichoke hearts ($8) or breaded mushrooms ($7.25). Alternatively, diners can dip into noncylindrical fare, such as the chicken linguine pesto ($18.50) on the pasta menu, the grilled tilapia dinner ($16.75) on the specialties menu, or a savory selection of rhombuses on the complimentary geometry tests.

Cavatappi’s chow connoisseurs transplant Italy’s savory culinary traditions onto an extensive menu of pastas, pizzas, and more. Kick off taste-bud treks with the antipasto italiano, featuring a smorgasbord of cold cuts and cheeses coupled with giardinera and mixed olives ($11), and then flavor-surf the waves of brasato al barolo con polenta—rump roast marinated for three days in barolo wine ($15)—or gnocchi alla bava, homemade potato dumplings in fontina-cheese fondue ($11).

Nonna’s Pizza

The rules to Nonna’s Challenge are deceptively simple: eat two slices in half an hour. Every last bit of pizza must be finished, and you can only get up from the table to refill your drink. So what’s the catch? Well, for starters, the slices are gargantuan––each constitutes a quarter of a pie and measures nearly an inch thick. None of this could dissuade pizza aficionado Tim Brown, who polished off two slices in less than four minutes. Thankfully, not all meals at Nonna’s Pizza have to be so intense. Though the pizzeria has been serving up enormous slices for more than four decades, its menu has a lot more to offer. Hearty pastas, 8-inch Italian sandwiches, and sauce-slathered wings are just some of the dishes that fill tables beside the dining room’s large picture windows. Nonna’s even brews a special house cola, which gets its distinctive spice from being fired in the same oven as the pizzas.
