Favorite Italian - Western Burbs?

Ed Fisher | Oct 16, 2002 05:00 AM

So folks, what are your favorite italian places in the general Oak Park vicinity? Let's arbitrarily say we're bounded by:

cermak to addison, first ave to austin or so, and no real penalties for going outside the area, I just don't want to have to drive TOO far for a good meal.

Freddy's is on the list, of course, but I'm looking for more of a good, cheap (most main courses less than $8-10), sit-down, cooked-by-your-grandmother italian dinner. Bonuses for pasta served family style and late hours. No Liquor License required, I'm ok with BYO.

I figure my best bet would be in the Elmwood Park area, but I don't really know where to start.

So what are your suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
