JenChicago does La Scarola!

If you want a true taste of Chicago, you’ll get exactly that at La Scarola Italian Restaurant. I was first introduced to the incredible food by Stan Wozniak who has known Joey Mondelli, co-owner of La Scarola, for decades. Stan was a teenage “gofer” for his uncle Nicky “Suits” Caruso, Jilly Rizzo and the one and only, Frank Sinatra. Joey, who used to own Kelly Mondelli’s on Clark Street, was good friends with Stan’s uncle, Nicky, which led to cooking for Sinatra and becoming friends with Stan.

And then I came along to eat up all the food.

Co-owners Joey Mondelli and Armando Vasquez can be found shaking hands and kissing babies 7 nights a week and at lunch weekdays. When you go to La Scarola, you’re family- tell ‘em cousin JenChicago sent you.
