A well known quality place- known for their pan pizza- great They made list of best Italian beef in Chicago As a veteran who has eaten at all the great places- surprised to see them on that list Had to try- generous size but taste...just ok Asked for juicy- dipped in gravy Was very dry- even hot peppers failed to liven it up A very average sandwich sadly Again- a great place- but skip the beef sandyMore

You walk into the Italian deli/market and wander between shelves packed with enticing Italian products and freezers loaded with packages of pastas. You eventually wend your way to the cases of dinner delicacies. There seemed to be as many staff behind the counter as there...were customers in line. Half of the customers were ordering food to take out to the small seating area and the other half ordering take out. It seems like utter confusion but everybody gets the right order. We ordered lasagna (in addition to the ravioli and risotto we picked up on our way). There was enough for four large delicious portions for less than $11. They ask you if you intend to heat with a microwave or oven and give you specific directions on how to do it properly. Although it looks like a separate area, order the home made super rich gelato from your server. Be advised that parking can be a challenge and this is a CASH ONLY business. These minor inconveniences only add to the experience of this not to be missed hidden gem. The food and staff are phenomenal.More

This crowded Italian grocery store, deli, restaurant and gelato store is filled with terrific ingredients, freshly baked pizza, deli meats, lasagna, eggplant dishes and so much more. The chaos is organized with a hard working staff that is friendly and helpful to every customer! The...food is delicious. If you want to eat on site, you exit the store with your tray and sit down in the attached but not connected dining room. A joyous fellowship overwhelms everyone in the dining room. The food and atmosphere is simply wonderful!More

Been coming here for over 50 years. Joe and Annamaria work their tails off to put out some of the best Italian food I ever had. Italian Ice and gelato, unbelievable chicken varieties, sandwiches and the best pizza, period. I read they were voted the...Best Margherita and best spicy Soppressata pizza in Chicago! Can you believe it. Not Pequod's or Lou Malnati's (I enjoy them both also)More

My future son-in-law took me here while I was visiting Chicago. Everything looked amazing! I wish I had 3 stomachs so I could have tried more dishes! I chose a pasta salad dish, followed by their homemade gelato. Fantastic!

Everything was perfect! Friendly staff and atmosphere! I usually also buy items for friends and family that don't get to Freddy's often. They know customers by name and will help you take your items out to your car. Outside and indoor seating is great! DO...NOT pass this one up!More

The locals have it right. There is a line out the door. Service is swift and efficient though, so the wait is not long. Besides groceries, everyone was in search of good, solid Italian foods, including but limited to pizza. We shared a variety of...salads, a piece of pizza, and pasta. I can't get the meal out of my mind. It was all very good. We sat outside under the awning. Fun setting. There was an indoors seating area as well. You find your own seat and table, and I'm told it can be a problem, but on the sunny day we visited, there was seating with no wait. We lucked out. People came by to see if anyone needed anything else. We were happily eating our way through the variety of dishes we had bought. This is a great family casual place. I know some in our party go regularly. We are out of town visitors, but the next time I'm in the Chicago outskirts, I'm heading for Freddy's.More
