A word from Tony Spavones
Where Tony Spavone travels, music cannot be too far behind. Tony Spavone's Ristorante is proof enough. Food is served - excellent food, infact-but music is also a star on the menu. Spavone's restaurant is one of the few in Chicagoland where the owner regularly serenades his guests with a song; where a restaurant full of people cheerfully sing along to whatever tune catches their fancy; where a roomful of diners routinely gets up to form a giant conga line.

Diner Reviews
  • "1st time at Spavone's. We will go back again and again. The food and service were very good. The singing was professional and very enjoyable. Tony's voice and repertoire were first class. One of the waitresses sang as well when we were there. She could and should be a professional. I recommend Tony Spavone's highly!!."

  • "My wife & I hadn't been to Spavone's in probably 20 yrs. It's just too far away now, but we were in the area and decided to go back. It was great! The food was terrific. Tony worked the room & serenaded many of the tables with Italian songs. He even did a duet with our waitress on Loretta Lynn & Patsy Cline. All-in-all, it was as if we were regulars. A great time!"

  • "Tony Spavone's is an old school Italian restaurant that offers a warm and casual environment. The dishes include authentic Italian specialities such as rotolo, braciole, and burrata. These items are not to be found on menus at most other wannabe Italian restaurants. Their garlic rolls are addictive! The atmosphere is enhanced by the owner Tony crooning Italian classics in the background. Last time out, one of the servers, Kelly, also sang a couple of songs. Her voice is amazing. Having the live music in a more intimate fashion really is a unique experience. The servers are attentive, but don't hover or rush you. This is a great spot for couples or groups. All good!"

  • "We had an 8 pm reservation. we were only seated 15 minutes late (it was Valentine's Day) but we didn't receive our food until 10:15 pm! We ordered around 8:45 pm. If it wasn't for our waitress being so generous, we would have walked out. That being said, the food was delicious once we finally did get it."

  • "In the past, spavones had been a great experience. The food was great and Tony's voice was even better. My girlfriend and I recently went on valentines day which I anticipated a crowded evening but we had a late reservation for 7:45 hoping we would miss the rush. We had to check in twice because the lady didn't write down my name the first time I told her we were there, then we went over to the bar while we were waiting. This part made me the most upset because the full 30 min. we waited at the bar, the bartender didn't once acknowledge that we were sitting there waiting to get a drink. Waitress hardly came by our table and waited an hour and half before we got our food and didn't leave until close to 11:00 and by then it was nearly empty."

  • "We came to the restaurant with some friends and had a wonderful time. The food was excellent as usual. The only thing I'd like to mention is that they should tell you what the price is for the specials of the day. We we were surprised that the Prawns were 31.00 dollars. Granted they were delicious, but I think a bit pricey for 3 large prawns. Most restaurants tell you what the prices are. Overall an excellent choice and great food. Great entertainment."

  • "Who would have guessed you could find such a wonderful, locally owned restaurant in the midst of what appeared to be mostly chain restaurants? We had a lovely time. They sat us by the fire on a really cold night. The menu was diverse, and we loved everything we had. The calamari appetizer was among the best I've ever had. We had a prawn special (huge prawns), linguine with clam sauce (tons of clams) and a chicken and veggie risotto that was different than most but luscious tasting. If we get back to this area, we will definitely return, and we already recommended it to several people at the wedding we were in town for. You can't beat having the owner do a little singing and come to your table to check on the food and service."

  • "If you are looking for excellent food, great atmosphere, top-notch service and live music.... Then this is the spot! This family-owned restaurant has been host to celebrities past and present yet each guest is made to feel special as you chat with the owner, Tony, and enjoy hearing him sing (as well as others who may happen to be there that evening and some talented servers!) current and classic favorites. A large, two-sided stone fireplace fills the room with ambience. Looking forward to many more great evenings here."
