This restaurant is a three-time winner at the Rio Italian Festival for its sauces. Located in a converted old-style brick house since 1975, this family owned and operated business is virtually a piece of Little Italy. For starters, sample the stuffed artichoke, calamari or mussels marinara. Try pasta either with mushroom sauce, calamari sauce or with snails. A nice selection of beer and wine is also available.
I have been going to Chicago Joe's every since they were located in Fitzgerald's or it could be the Fremont hotel in downtown Vegas. Bar none, their food is the bomb. The pasta e fagoli soup is like none I have ever had and is a meal in itself, not to mention the meatballs. I don't ever go to Vegas without eating at Chicago Joe's no matter how many high end trendy places I eat while visiting. Check it out, you won't be disappointed, if you love real authentic Italian food. Being born in Philly I have some first hand experience on good Italian eats.
This is a small place that's been in the famous old Vegas strip (Fremont St.) for over 36 years. They serve hot bread immediately and have great salads. I love their eggplant and chicken parm also their pizza isn't like real Chicago pizza, but it's better than most places that serve regular pizza. The service is quick and the owner knows everyone that comes in and usually will sit and talk with you for a little while. He's very funny and a hard working guy.
The place is unique, in a small house in downtown Las Vegas, not one of the many knockoffs or franchised places. The sauce, marianara, that I had on my ravioli was maybe the best I ever had, just a touch of sweetness and faily thick but not overly so and made the cheese stuffed ravioli a delight.
Additionally the bread was freshly baked and came out hot.
All four in our party enjoyed the meal very much and raved about the sauce, one member had the soup (pasta fagoli) and said it was very good.
However, the salad was just ordinary, not even as good as we concoct at home. The standard ice berg lettuce, a couple of small black olives and marble sized tomatoes and an Italian dressing that probably came from a bottle.
The place is very small and with a crowd like last night we ended up in a corner with hardly room to move.
Another visit is in order!
