When you've got that hankering for some pasta, a little chicken masala or an awesome pizza, where do you go? 

This week, Zagat—arguably the ultimate restaurant guide for anyone, anywhere—named Gaetano's, 7636 Madison St., Forest Park, one of the best Italian restaurants in the Chicago area. There were only six restaurants on that list. 

"Prepare for an experience," at the Forest Park eatery, where the chef delivers "'completely unexpected,' praiseworthy dishes à la carte or in 'unbelievable' tasting menus," the rating says. 

So, we thought we'd see who in the area can serve some mean Italian cuisine with the best of them, according to Yelp! reviewers.
