What started out as a quick stop after work for a take out sandwich ended in the most mouth watering, taste bud tingling, happy stomach sensation one can only imagine!
At first glance, it looks like an ordinary restaurant/bar. Painted windows show the latest happy hour specials, allowing no peak of the wonder located inside. The door opens and you see people and pool tables. There may be a recession going on but not at Santisi Brothers!
Let your eyes get used to the dark to find 115 tvs proudly displaying every sport known to man. If you can't hear what's being said closed captioning narrates your program for you.
Debbie was tending bar and before you can say thirsty she has your order taken. Barely open the menu, and you have your drink in front of your first sip. All of the staff treat you like family (after all it is Mom's kitchen!). They not only know the menu, but they LOVE the food too and can steer you on a path of pure gluttonous enjoyment.
Recommended dishes are the homemade eggplant parmesan, lasagna, spaghetti & meatballs, Philly cheesesteak loaded with American or provolone cheese, fresh mushrooms, green peppers, and onions on a freshly made hoagie roll. All of which can be polished off with a thick slice of homemade New York style cheesecake.
Santisi Brothers is located at 2710 West Bell Road, just west of I-17 and Bell Road.
