Failoni's History: Purchased in 1916 by Alex Failoni and wife Rose from the Lemp brewery. Located at the edge of Dogtown in the 6700 block of Manchester. Failoni's is open Tuesday thru Friday for lunch and dinner and Saturday nights for dinner. If you plan on coming for dinner, you may want to call ahead for reservations.
Dinner at Failoni's on Friday nights is a throwback to the days of Chicago's Villa Venice Cafe, New York's Copa, and other popular dinner/nightclubs of the 40's 50's and 60's.The food is excellent and huge in portions. While dining you will listen to Alex Failoni Jr. sing Frank Sinatra tunes. From the Sicilian Steak, to the Tuna Steak, you will not walk away unsatisfied. Matriarch Rosemary Failoni and grandson Joey do all of the cooking and also make the best Italian green olive salad and flash fried spinach that you have ever tasted. If you're ordering food, this is a must! They also put together a daily special for lunch and one for every Friday night. The pizza is a customer favorite with homemade crust and a family recipe sauce in a brick oven. Rosetta serves customers lunch and dinner. Victor serves drinks and manages other things at Failoni's along with Alex Jr.
The Failoni family thanks you for keeping us in business almost 100 years. Alex Sr, Rosemary, Alex Jr, Rosetta, Victor and JoMarie
