Victory Restaurant Group

Founded by Chef Joe Farina and long-time friend Anthony Gambino, Victory Restaurant Group brings diners fine Chicago Italian creations at Victory Tap | South Loop, Victory Italian | River North, and Victory Italian | Oak Park. Victory Restuarant Group specializes in classic Chicago Italian dishes along with prime meat and seafood.

Our menus feature Chef Farina’s signature dishes and handmade pastas, including his famous award-winning “Joe’s Mama’s Meatballs,” classic brick chicken, the city’s best and largest parmesans, prime steaks and extraordinarily prepared seafood. It’s a true labor of love from Chef Farina, Chicago’s preeminent practitioner of Chicago-style Italian cuisine.

He and his family learned to adapt classic Italian recipes to accommodate local ingredients – a tradition that Chef Joe brings to all our Victory restaurants. Victory evokes the spirit of the upscale taverns that served Italian-American food throughout 1920s and 1930s Chicago. Our locations are proud to represent the neighborhoods they call home, and welcome regulars and visitors alike, in Victory style.
