Little Sicily


Little Sicily has been serving authentic Chicago-style Italian cuisine in the Northwest Valley for 10 years. Locally-owned and operated by Sicilians, the food at Little Sicily is unbelievably delicious.

Mike Faulisi and George Alaimo purchased Little Sicily from their friend and former owner Dominic Scafidi. George Alaimo moved to the U.S. from Sicily in the 1970s, and has been in the restaurant business ever since. “I remember walking past a pizza place when I was 12 years old, watching people throw pizza dough in the air, and thinking, ‘I want to do that.’

When I was 13, I went into that same pizza place and asked for a job, and soon was washing dishes. Making pizza is an art. I had to work my way up to that.” In addition to the many sandwiches and pizzas made at Little Sicily, the menu boasts authentic Italian pasta dishes and appetizers, as well as delicious desserts. “The Cannoli is homemade and the Tiramisu is brought in fresh from Chicago,” says Alaimo.

Among the other unique services available at Little Sicily, is BYOB (Bring your favorite wine and beer). Additionallly, Little Sicily loves to cater events. If you call at least 48 hours ahead, they will make a menu your friends rave about for days to come.
