"Keeping Tradition Fresh" for Over 75 Years

Old-World Flavors with a Chicago Neighborhood Vibe

Photos and menus from yesteryear grace the walls of the present-day sleek modern eatery; a fond reminder of the past that has most certainly not stood still at this storied establishment. We welcome you with the essence of great food and the genuine warmth of our close-knit Italian family.

Colletti's Award Winning Ribs

You be the judge:
Try our award-winning ribs!

One of the best kept secrets in all of Chicago, our ribs are first seared on both sides to lock in flavor then slow roasted for hours in our rotisserie oven with our original tangy barbecue sauce until moist and tender. Includes fries and homemade coleslaw.
