For years our residents have asked for a quality restaurant and now Chef Davito and his wife Bee have delivered. Introducing Chef Davito’s Italian Restaurant serving both northern and southern Italian cuisine in the beautifully remodeled facility that was previously occupied by C’s and Tom’s Café. The atmosphere is truly Italian with beautiful full wall murals, candle lit linen table cloth tables, full wine selection and rich Italian background music. But the real treat is the authentic Italian fare that Chef Davito creates.
Chef Davito started cooking at age eight being taught the Italian ways of his grandmother he soon starting cooking for his family. After many years of experimentation and experience he opened his first restaurant, ShishKaBob House, in Bridgeport and was there for 12 years. Chef Davito then moved to Florida and worked as a chef at the 264 Grille on the island of Palm Beach. Davito then answered the call of his sister to come back to Illinois and help her set up Zsa Zsa’s Italian Restaurant in Ingleside where he eventually built a huge following. His task then was to purchase and implement the right kitchen equipment, develop a full Italian menu and train the staff.
What was supposed to be a two month trip turned into an extremely successful eight year job, cooking for his sister at Zsa Zsa’s. After fulfilling the needs of his sister’s restaurant, Davito felt the need to open his own place.
