Amore - Pizza and Beyond

You've seen their commercials on TV. You've heard about them from a former Chicagoan wearing a Cubs, White Sox, Bulls or Bears hat you met in the grocery

store. You've seen their billboards. Amore! Taste of Chicago located at 3945 S. Durango Drive is famous for it's "true to taste" Chicago style deep dish pizza, but

trust us

is passionate about Chicago food. He spent a year seeking out the best meat distributor to purchase his baby back ribs from and with the help of a few Italian friends, began perfecting his own sauce, which is made fresh every Wednesday morning just in time for RIB WEDNESDAY. We are talking fall-off-the-bone delicious BBQ Baby Back Ribs with fries, side of beans and cornbread.

New to the Lunch menu is a "back home" favorite, the Italian Breaded Steak Sandwich.

Just saying it

you are all set! "There’s something for everyone among our menu offerings, and our Chicago-trained kitchen staff has garnered the praise of homesick former Chicagoans since our opening. Even Italian-Americans from the old Chicago neighborhoods find themselves suddenly transported back to mom’s kitchen table when they order from our menu." said Joey. And don't worry about missing a Cubs or White Sox game this season, Amore has the Baseball Package! Passing along our former Chicagoan culture to our children who are now being raised in the desert is important. So, put on your favorite Chicago sports t-shirt or jersey, grab the kids (Amore is smoke-free and alcohol free) and head on down to Amore! Taste of Chicago for delicious food made from top quality products at a fair price. Make sure to leave room for the canolis. Amore also offers catering for events and gatherings. The dining room can accommodate groups on-site, or their trained staff can cater the event at your location. Visit the all NEW website at amoretasteofchicago.com

Former Chicagoan Mike Torsiello eats at WCBNP and quickly became friends with Tim Korney. Mike is

friends with Patrolman Dave & Dave's best friend Kem and brings them to eat at WCBNP. Dave & Kem are former New Yorkers so this is a big deal. LOL. And

Dave gets struck at high speed by a drunk driver

while on his motorcycle. After long months of surgeries, the bills began to pile up. That's when his friends went into action. Thank you to our former Chicagoan community who donated their time, raffle prizes and attended the Fundraiser. Special mention to WCBNP neighbors NOTHING BUNDT CAKE and Councilman Stavros Anthony who presented Figs with a Proclamation.
