    Elegantia Introduction

    Gene & Georgetti was founded in 1941 by Gene Michelotti and his partner Alfredo Federighi, who was nicknamed “Georgetti” after a famous Italian cyclist. Located in the heart of River North, Gene & Georgetti is Chicago’s oldest and one of its finest steakhouses. Partners Gene and “Georgetti” worked hand in hand to establish the reputation of excellence that is continued through today.

The restaurant proudly boasts a legion of regular customers, some going back more than 50 years.


There are a lot of Italian restaurants in Chicago. This one is amazing! Food, drinks. No complaint. Their cocktails are pretty classic, but they really know how to make them. Then we took a bottle of wine for the meal, and again we were more than satisfied. Now for the food: unbelievable! I started with the stuffed clams and my friend took the antipasti. We were delighted, and already full. But then, our Entrees arrived: we were suddenly starving again. My calf liver was absolutely delicious (and the bacon that goes with it is just perfect). My friend had the sausage: I couldn't help but eat a third of his plate. Though we could not possibly eat anything else, we took a Tiramisu to share (because, you know, it's an Italian restaurant and you have to have the tiramisu). OMG! Portions are more than generous and we had plenty of food to take home. We are now regulars of the Gene & Georgetti and don't hesitate to stop by, even for a meal to go...
