Traverso's restaurant has been serving the most delicious Italian food in the South suburbs for over thirty years. We're located in Orland Park on the East side of Harlem Avenue about one half mile North of 159th street.
Mama T (Lena Traverso) brought her famous homemade recipes to the United States from Italy and worked in our kitchen perfecting every last detail until she was over eighty years old. Praised for our homemade pastas and famous thin crust pizza, you'll be sure to come back to Traverso's to try something new after you tease your taste buds on your first visit. Bring the team in and go casual with a cheese cube appetizer, some pizza, soda and beer. Make it a date and live it up by starting with some fried calamari and indulging in some of our mouth watering homemade Traverso's ravioli. Sip on one of our fine wines, and finish up with some homemade cheesecake.
Dine inside in our traditional Italian dining room or bar during the winter months and head out back to our outdoor patio and bar during the warmer months. Traverso's patio is one of the few places you are permitted to smoke. Have a cocktail or two and partake in some entertaining Karaoke on Wednesdays 8:00 and Saturdays 8:30.
We proudly bring to you our full dinner menu. Entrees ranging from sandwiches and fried chicken through steak and seafood. Try our original classic thin-crust pizza that some of our regulars refuse to stray from. If you're really in for a treat be sure to try Mama T's handmade specials. Be sure to tend to the needs of your sweet tooth by finishing up with one of our sweet desserts like homemade cheesecake, cannoli, or Goosey cake.
We offer a great variety of catering options for you to select from for your next big event. Take a look at our catering menu and put together the perfect meal for your guests. If you have any questions or need help with your order just give us a call.
