The inside of this classic, old-school Italian place feels like a scene from Casino (which was, in fact, filmed here), thanks in no small part to the leather booths, mahogany bar, and zebra-print carpet. Chef Fetaz famously left Chicago when Paul Anka recruited him to helm the dance club Jubilee, where he worked until the opening of Piero’s in 1982: his menu is all about stellar Italian classics like osso bucco and linguine and clams. Come on a Friday or Saturday, when Vegas legend Pia Zadora sings Sinatra songs in the lounge.
