“Keeping Tradition Fresh” for Over 75 Years

Founded in 1946 as El Centro Restaurant & Lounge (named for the intersection where it’s located), Colletti’s, over 75 years and 4 generations has evolved into a local favorite and destination place for patrons near and far. Photos and menus from yesteryear grace the walls of the present-day sleek modern eatery; a fond reminder of the past that has most certainly not stood still at this storied establishment. We welcome you with the essence of great food and the genuine warmth of our close-knit Italian family.


Quality Cuisine for Dine-In, Take-Out, Delivery or Catering

Inspired by family roots originating and still residing in the province of Bari located in the Puglia region of southern Italy, Colletti’s offers a variety of selections with a focus on old-world items each prepared with our tradition of Italian authenticity along with an array of seafood delivered and served fresh daily. Colletti’s also specializes in contemporary American fare including prime-aged Angus steaks, award-winning BBQ ribs, mouthwatering Chicago tavern style thin crust pizza, flatbreads, entrée salads, and homemade soups prepared daily.
