Purchased in 1916 by Alex Failoni and wife Rose from the Lemp brewery, it was opened as a bar and restaurant in 1933 .
This year marks Failoni's 70th anniversary.Located at the edge of Dogtown in the 6700 block of Manchester,Failoni's is open Monday thru Friday for lunch, and Friday nights for dinner.But if you plan on coming for dinner, you might want to call for resevations.
Dinner at Failoni's on Friday night 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 in huge portions.From the Sicillian Steak, to the Tuna Steak, you will not walk away unsatisfied.Rosmary does all the cooking and also makes the best Italian green olive salad you have ever tasted. If you're ordering food, this is a must! She also puts together a daily special for lunch and one for every Friday night.
