“It's all about the thin crust pizza!”
Vito & Nick's Pizzeria, Restaurant and Lounge in Chicago has been serving Cracker Thin Crust Pizza since the 1950's. Their business started some 84 years ago. Vito & Nick's is a family owned business whose roots originated in Sicily. In 1923 Vito and Mary Barraco opened their first tavern located at Congress and Polk. In 1932 founder Vito Barraco opened a new location at 80th and Halsted calling it Vito's Tavern. In 1939 Vito moved to 79th and Carpenter to include 8 restaurant tables and a bar where they served Italian sandwiches, sausage, beef and snacks. His son Nick joined the business in 1945 after being discharged from the Army Air force. Several years later the family expanded the business to include home cooked meals with Vito's wife Mary Barraco. They soon became known for inexpensive quality Italian dishes which all lead to the dining experience it is today.
This old-school institution has been serving thin-crust, square-cut pizzas to hungry South Siders since 1923 ($14.25 to $16.50). The only topping you need to concern yourself with is the rich, fennel-flecked sausage. V&N's has successfully upheld a strict no-delivery policy over the years, but the impeccably executed Sicilian pizzas are well worth the visit.
