Connecting people over food.

Our promise is simple: we deliver an outstanding dining experience with an environmental conscience.

Zullo’s was founded in 2009 to bring traditional Italian cooking sourced from organic, local ingredients to the greater Chicago community.

We shape our menus by taking cues from nature, sourcing ingredients that are fresh and local. Because we only use the best ingredients, we deliver fresh, genuine and thoughtful dishes—every time.

We set up shop alongside our suppliers in local farmers’ markets, where we became known for our Zeppole di Mela (Italian apple cider donuts) and the traditional farm-to-plate cuisine of our grandparents. Through the support of our community, we later expanded our business to meet the growing demand for sustainable catering services.

I cannot say enough good things about Zullo’s. I have been using them as a corporate caterer for several years, and they always deliver! They can provide anything from a simple lunch of sandwiches to an elegant several course dinner. And Adriana and her staff are fantastic to work with! The fact that they area a zero waste kitchen and utilize lots of local ingredients are added bonuses….oh and by the way, the food is DELICIOUS!

Our Italian heritage is more than just an identity—it’s a way of life. It’s an abiding love of the harmony that comes from people joined at my dinner table. It’s a loving embrace of memories made and shared over great food. From my mother and grandmother’s wooden tables to my own experience at the French Pastry School, I’ve learned what it takes to bring together authentic Italian cuisine, conscious sustainable practices and plenty of passion to make Zullo’s a unique experience for you and your guests.
