We had dinner at Jimmy's of Chicago last night (near Gilbert and Pecos in Gilbert.) I had spaghetti and meatballs and my husband had gorgonzola linguine alfredo with chicken.
The bread served when we sat down was warm, crusty and flavorful (with olive oil and balsamic served on a plate, plus more in bottles on the table), and my garden salad had the lovely additions of homemade croutons, homemade Italian dressing, and just a few tart olives. My husband ordered the Caesar to start, and I thought the large pieces of shaved parmesan were a nice touch.
Both dishes were great. I grew up in an Italian family, and the red sauce and homemade meatballs on my meal definitely lived up to my high expectations. The gorgonzola pasta was creamy and appropriately tangy.
My husband was excited to see that they had Peroni on draft, and I enjoyed a glass of pinot noir.
The service was impeccable - attentive, but not overly so.
The total for the bill was $54, and we took home a ton of leftovers. I thought it was a good value.
As with so many great restaurants in the Valley, this one is located in a strip mall, though in a still fairly rural part of Gilbert. Don't judge a book by its cover - try this restaurant!
