In 1932, Vito Barraco, my grandfather, opened his first business on the south side of Chicago located at 80th and Halsted, naming it Vito's Tavern. Working hard at a thriving business for 13 years, my grandfather relocated Vito's Tavern to 79th and Carpenter. My father, Nicholas Barraco, joined my grandfather in business with intentions to expand Vito's Tavern. The expansion started with a limited menu of Italian dishes prepared by my grandmother, Mary Barraco. Vito & Nick's soon became a welcomed name in the hearts of the neighborhood. Vito & Nick's was born.
Through the years Vito & Nick's II ® has been able to serve our loyal customers who live nearby. For many years, others did not have the chance to taste this great pizza. It was our resolution, after 10 years of research, to develop a process in which we can deliver the finest fresh frozen pizza, anywhere! Today, all our aspirations have come to be, Vito & Nick's II ® is now serving the nation.Soon after we were shipping our frozen pizzas to our loyal customers, we received emails and letters from the far and away Vito & Nick's II friends saying that the pizza tastes perfect and just like they got it in our restaurant. The only thing missing was the restaurant and the great atmosphere we all love when we are in a Vito & Nick's II. You asked for our pizza frozen, you got it....you ask for the restaurant??? Now you can have it!!! We are now offering franchise location opportunities so that you can enjoy all that we have enjoyed serving you for all these years!
