We have changed the look of our web site a little, however, your favorite pizza recipe that I have worked with since 1965, still makes the "Best Pizza Anywhere"! Now I would like to tell the real history behind how you and I have gotten here together...
All about Vito & Nick's II...
In 1932, Vito Barraco, my grandfather, opened his first business on the south side of Chicago located at 80th and Halsted, naming it Vito's Tavern. Working hard at a thriving business for 13 years, my grandfather relocated Vito's Tavern to 79th and Carpenter. My father, Nicholas Barraco, joined my grandfather in business with intentions to expand Vito's Tavern. The expansion started with a limited menu of Italian dishes prepared by my grandmother, Mary Barraco. Vito & Nick's soon became a welcomed name in the hearts of the neighborhood. Vito & Nick's was born.
Shortly after, my mother, also named Mary Barraco, added the first pizza to the menu. The recipe was a cracker thin true original pizza that made its mark on history! By the early 1960's the name Vito & Nick's had now become a household name known for having the "Best Pizza Anywhere". On June 25, 1965 my father and mother, Nicholas and Mary Barraco, along with their 7 children, moved Vito & Nick's to the southwest side of Chicago at 84th and Pulaski. My grandfather, Vito, entered retirement after years of hard work and success.
Like Father, Like Son...
I, Nicholas Barraco II, continued my father's objective with further the expansion of Vito & Nick's. Working in this business my entire life, I personally have been fortunate enough to open two restaurants named Vito & Nick's II ®. My Vito & Nick's II ® restaurants are located in Hickory Hills, IL, and Mokena, IL. Thanks to all the wonderful people I have served over so many years, Vito & Nick's II ® has achieved great success. Thank You!
