Little Italy staple Pompei to open third restaurant in Westmont
WESTMONT – When Tommy Davino was 14, he started washing dishes at his family’s pizzeria in Chicago. Soon, he realized he wanted to stay in the business.
“That’s it, this is what I’m doing for the rest of my life,” the Oak Brook resident recalled telling himself. “I knew it way back then. I love it and I take pride in it.”
The restaurant is Pompei Little Italy, which Davino’s great-grandfather opened in 1909 on Taylor Street in Chicago’s Little Italy neighborhood. Davino said the restaurant, which was named after a community church, originally started as a small bakery, only serving bread and cheese pizza.
