John & Tony’s in Carol Stream is a neighborhood restaurant with a menu full of deliciousness and a distinctly Italian focus.
Everything is made from scratch at John & Tony’s, and though the menu features many of the favorites you’ve come to expect at an Italian-American steakhouse, there are some novel flourishes that keep customers returning for more.Read More
Bruschetta with Roma tomatoes and Parmesan, sausage and peppers with homemade marinara, and calamari crispy or grilled are all starters at Carol Stream’s John & Tony’s, and they send a clear message: this is an Italian American steakhouse. That’s a good thing because Italian cuisine is ideally suited to a good steak. There are also some non-Italian but undeniably scrumptious starters, like Brussels sprouts or cauliflower with honey-sriracha and bacon.
The menu shows a good mix of pasta dishes (of course!), including lush ravioli quattro formaggi in a creamy tomato sauce, spaghetti Bolognese with homemade meatballs and an innovative shrimp and broccoli served over angel hair pasta (also homemade, like so many other dishes at John & Tony’s, and a source of considerable pride).
For your fish course, you can enjoy glazed halibut with creamy asparagus risotto, salmon paired with shrimp in a creamy mushroom risotto and seared mahi-mahi and creamy lemon risotto. That may sound like a lot of creaminess in the risottos, but with relatively low-fat fish, you’re going to appreciate all that soft milkiness.
Now, we’re getting to the meat. Steaks, ribs and chops are all cut to order, and include filet mignon, New York strip, and, on weekends, prime rib (not to be missed!). Again, there are some John and Tony’s originals you’re sure to like, including pork chops seared in garlic butter and served with bourbon applesauce.
Before dinner, after dinner, or while you’re waiting for the family to finish dessert, chill out with some slots or poker in the video gaming lounge.
John & Tony’s invites all guests to join their wine club and receive the featured wine and a tasting each month, as well as discounts on the wine of the month and 20% off any wines on the menu.
