In addition, site visitors can enjoy an exclusive recipe for a popular Philly G's dish and discover other Italian restaurants on the Restaurant.com program.
"Restaurants are the social centers of our communities and Philly G's is a great example of how tradition and quality food brings family and friends together," said Cary Chessick, Restaurant.com president and CEO. "What better place to enjoy a well-served meal than at a family owned business that has put years of hard work into every dish they serve."
The Restaurant of the Month selection process is based on criteria including the restaurant's popularity with diners, high standards for service, unique cuisine, memorable ambiance, history and more. Located in Vernon Hills, Ill., a northern suburb of Chicago, Phil
Gilardi, Sr. opened "Gilardi's" in 1985 and joined the Restaurant.com program in 2001. In 2005, his son, Phil Gilardi, Jr. took over and renamed the restaurant "Philly G's" and continued the family tradition of successful restaurateurs. Using authentic Italian recipes passed down from Gilardi's great grandmother, Philly G's menu offers diners an array of Italian classics that Gilardi grew up enjoying. From the house that was restored to create the restaurant's intimate, home-like setting to the Philly G's credo that all staff are part of the family, Gilardi has put a large effort into ensuring the restaurant presents an inviting family atmosphere.
"Philly G's is based on rich heritage and we strive to serve its guests as if they themselves were family," said Phil Gilardi Jr., owner of Philly G's.
