Chef Mauro Mafrici grew up in the fine dining industry back home in Italy. For 37 years, Mauro has been in the restaurant business, working in many places around the world. His wife, Kimberly, grew up in Wisconsin, so they decided to settle in the Midwest. Mauro and Kimberly moved to Chicago and opened Pelago Ristorante, an authentic Italian restaurant based off of Mauro and his experience. Mauro explained that Pelago is his home; he is happily at the restaurant seven days a week and his customers love seeing him every day. Pelago Ristorante offers delicious authentic Italian cuisine made completely from scratch. Everything is made in-house, from their fresh pastas to their creamy ice cream. Their bread is baked two times a day to ensure maximum freshness. Pelago Ristorante provides a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. This fine dining establishment creates one of the most authentic Italian experiences in all of Chicagoland. Pelago Ristorante is a must-try for anyone who enjoys Italian fare.
