D’Amato’s Bakery is real deal Italian cuisine. Sporting vibrant green, red and white paint, the instant you spot this gem on the corner of Grand Avenue and May Street, you’ll know that you’re at the right spot.
The smell of fresh bread, pizza and cookies wafts through the air as your eyes become overwhelmed with the sight of irresistible, authentic Italian pastries. Be sure to get in line before the shop crowds with anxious customers waiting to get their hands on a slice of D’Amato’s iconic pizza.
D’Amato’s pizza slices are far from average. The dough is perfectly baked on a coal burning oven; the pizza is an excellent balance of a lightly crisped crust, slightly sweet sauce, and delicious toppings. While the cheese and sausage slices are their most beloved toppings, you will find a wide variety of options to suit your taste.
If you’re more of a sandwich lover, order their meatball sub. Savory meatballs stuffed into fresh baked bread will send your taste buds soaring! You can order a sub on any bread–including their amazing focaccia bread.
Don’t forget to save room for dessert. Cannoli, tiramisu and an assortment of cookies are the cherry on top of a fabulous meal.
When you’re at D’Amato’s, expect to be treated with good, old-fashioned Italian hospitality. Many of the employees know regular customers’ names, and continually go out of their way to make sure to satisfy each customer’s respective needs. Even when Chicago is in the midst of a winter cold-spell, you’ll leave with a warm smile on your face.
It’s safe to say that bread runs in the D’Amato family. Nicola D’Amato started D’Amato’s Bakery decades ago, and his son, Victor, now runs the family business. Victor improved the brand by putting their product into the wholesale market. As a result of Victor’s hard work, D’Amato’s well-known bread can now be found in local grocery stores and restaurants around the city.
