    20 top Italian restaurants in Chicago

    The development of Italian cuisine mirrors the country’s rich political and geographic diversity. Mediterranean influences bring fish and olives into culinary creations, carefully handcrafted ziti, cavatelli, and other types of pasta hail from southern Italy, and exquisite desserts such as tiramisu find origins in the north—combining for a tasty eating experience renowned for its ability to bring people together.

    With over 90,000 establishments offering Italian-style dishes here in America, there are endless options to consider when craving the flavorful, savory tastes of “The Boot.” In order to help find the best Italian restaurants in Chicago, Stacker looked at the rankings and ratings provided by Foursquare, which considers user check-ins, ratings, tips, and menu items.
