BARREL & VINE
Open 11am – 10pm on Monday

Bet you were expecting an Italian place out of the box? Well, sometimes, it’s good to think outside of the box. Especially when you see the picture of the Barrel Carbonara Pasta below. Shrimp, chicken, bacon, red peppers and onions, bucatini pasta, and a creamy parmesan sauce as well. (They also serve a Short Rib Bolognese to die for as well, featuring pappardelle pasta). Make sure to check out the menu at https://barrelvine.net/menu/.
Open 11am – 9pm on Monday
15764 S. Bell Road (Homer Glen)
Chesdan’s is known for their pizzeria, but their pasta is pretty prime as well. Personal recommendation: Jimmy’s Rigatoni. Huge fan of the Marsala cream sauce that hits the chicken and pasta just right.
DIGS ON CANAL
Open 11:00am – 9pm on Monday
316 Canal Street (Lemont)
Chicken noodle soup, create your own mac, and more. But, the headliner? A Mac & Cheese flight. You’ll get 3 skillets, including a White Cheddar & Onion Mac, a BBQ Pork Mac, and a Tuscan Chicken Mac. Give the menu a visit at https://www.digsoncanal.com/menu.
Open 11am – 12am on Monday

Another surprise on the list? Not so fast … have you had their fried ravioli? I actually have to rate this as one of their best apps (and they have a GREAT selection …).
LA DOLCE VITA
Open 4pm – 9pm on Monday
107 Stephen Street
There is a reason that the original La Dolce Vita in Lemont has made a name for itself – mouthwatering Italian dishes that cause people to keep coming back again and again. Once of the best Chicken Parms I’ve had (I couldn’t find a photo), the Angel Hair pasta is truly angelic, and the gnocchi is fantastic. (It’s up to you if you call gnocchi a pasta or not).

Rosebud is a true staple of Italian flavor in the Chicago area, but did you know there is one in Lemont? And, they bring so much flavor to their dishes – where you will have the tough choice of deciding what to order. No matter what way you choose, you are going to have a top-notch meal.
