Tufano’s Vernon Park Tap

Italian in West Loop & Near West Side

A family-run classic on a leafy residential street, Tufano’s serves old-school Italian fare for modest prices. Blackboards carry a long list of daily specials, say, pasta with garlic-crusted broccoli or lemon chicken. Amid the celebrity photos on the wall you’ll see lovely shots of owner Joey DiBuono, his family and their patrons through the decades since 1930. Cash only.
