The guy that ran the place was a mafioso wannabe from Elmwood. The food was excellent because of his sweet wife.Vito actually owned it, and it is now closed. Weirdly Vito is now located in Elmwood Park

I'll take a convicted mob guy any day over the greasy beaners that destroyed my beloved Melrose Park. Growing up there outfit guys were literally everywhere!! Guess what? You could play anywhere, leave your doors unlocked, walk home on 25th anytime of night and walk downtown without hearing tuba bass coming outta a 85 rusted out Chevy van with scorpion decals on it. Schools were great, stores and food were outstanding, when the Dummocrats ( bobby Kennedy jr) went after the mob they did what the left ALWAYS DOES... DESTROYS EVERYTHING WITH THEIR " GOOD INTENTIONS" BECAUSE THEY'RE ALL IDIOTS. It created a lawless vacuum of gangs with no code or morals. You didn't have the drive bys, drugs on your block ect ect... the outfit NEVER destroyed your block or schools or brought down property values... you knew who they were and what they did and that's that. I miss those safe fun days.

I grew up in MP early 70's and my neighbor was outfit guy for well known crew. Dad and him were civil to another but Dad always mentioned kinda stay clear of him. Dad was walking to his car from L station in neighboring town one day in summer and was robbed and beaten pretty badly when I was in HS. He said he saw the guys who did it still hanging around the stop weeks after he actually pointed them out to cops. I was upset, held it in until one day mowing the lawn neighbor said hello I wasn't normal happy self I guess full of rage wanting to yap about what happened to dad and so I just blurted out like we're friends forever about what happened and the guys and he says " that's a real shame your pops a good man somebody should get rid that trash ya know" smiled walked away after jokingly saying I missed a spot on the grass I shouldn't be so angry... so oddly enough FREAKS ME OUT TO THIS DAY.. Dad says after getting home on a Friday those guys finally got theirs because they were beaten so badly with bats they couldn't even speak when they were being taken away in BROAD DAYLIGHT by the ambulance people. Nobody " saw anything" I went to college following month, parents moved south and I never got to say thanks to him BECAUSE I knew it was him, he woulda said what am I yakking about anyways. Those were outfit guys. Did his business, never pooped where he ate and kept the area safe and clean.

There's no more Mafia, take it from me I live here. Just a bunch of wannabes with street credit only valuable to themselves. That all ended a good 25-30 years ago.
