In diesem Restaurant in Highwood wird seit 1932 italienische Küche ganz ohne Fertigprodukte und nach Familienrezept zubereitet. Seit 1982 befindet es sich an der heutigen Adresse. Zu den Gerichten, die aus den täglich fangfrisch gelieferten Meeresfrüchten zubereitet werden, gehören unter anderem die besonders beliebten gedämpften Muscheln von der Insel Prince Edward Island. Darüber hinaus backt das Restaurant einige der besten Pizzen mit einem dünnen, knusprigen Boden, ganz wie die erste Pizza an der Nordküste, die 1944 bei Scornavacco serviert wurde. Hier können Sie alle erdenklichen Klassiker genießen: hausgemachte Pasta, von Hand ausgeklopftes und tranchiertes Hühnerfleisch, Parmigiana mit Kalbfleisch, Limone, Piccata, Lasagnen, Fleischbällchen und nicht zuletzt hausgemachte Desserts.

Jim sends weekly emails for WG...full of wit and charm and love of his family business...which shows in the family recipes served at the restaurant. Event though it is a bit noisy...it is SO WORTH going to AWG! Highly recommend.

I had the teriyaki salmon and it was swimming in the sauce. Way too much of it. My husband had the veal parm and it was not tender. The ambiance was nice and they gave us a quieter table because of a hearing problem. Overall, I would try again. The salad was very good.

Fresh season for Walleye Pike which was prepared using the original recipe of 37 years ago. It was absolutely delicious. One of our favorite “go-to’s”!

Love Washington Gardens, but on this visit the service fell way below what I’m accustomed to at this great neighborhood place. This review reflects only my most recent visit. Usually, the place is terrific.

Our daughter was visiting from NYC and always enjoys returning to AWG, as do we. Started with The calamari appetizer. Nicely fried and lightly breaded with a tasty cocktail sauce. For entrees, daughter enjoyed a salad with grilled shrimp while my wife and I had chicken Parmesan. Combine with a delightful Two Sisters Cabernet, a slice of scrumptious chocolate cake to share for dessert, and a wonderful server like Beth; you have the Rx for a very satisfying evening.

Service can be hurried food is decent although not as authentic and old-school as you would expect definitely way too many items on the menu probably about 100 too many
pizza is amazing other entrées can be hit or miss

Authentic minestrone. Very nice chicken limona. Fresh tasting green beans and a small portion of pasta round out the dish. Skip the house white wine. Classic old style Italian.

Wonderful experience...... Place always make existing customers appreciated and new customers welcome. I love listening to the servers greet customers and it seems to be consistently warm and friendly. Runners and bus are the same. Love seeing long time staffers! Started with the shrimp de jonghe appetizer which was very good and recommended. In the mood for pizza and it still wins as my favorite on the North Shore.

Everything great but the non pasta food, both eggplant and spaghetti were great, the pear and blue cheese salad was rough as well as the caprese salad - pears were hard, blue cheese was weak, tomato’s had zero flavor, Washington Gardens is a pasta machine, but skip the sides.

Food was excellent... We had Ravioli and Veal Limone (with added capers). Service was sporadic. We felt ignored but server was friendly (if not informative). Tables are too close together, so that conversations at nearby tables become intermingled.

I've been eating at Scornavacco's restaurants since the old days in the original location up north... and I'll keep coming back for the great food and good, honestly poured cocktails.
