Tufano’s Vernon Park Tap

Italian in West Loop & Near West Side

Still family-run after three generations, Tufano’s serves old-fashioned, hearty Italian fare for modest prices. The blackboards carry a long list of daily specials, which can include such wonderful items as pasta with garlic-crusted broccoli. Amid the usual celebrity photos on the wall you’ll see some really nice shots of Joey DiBuono, his family and their patrons through the decades. Cash only.
