[Chicago Pizza News] Come for the Pizza, Stay for the Gambling

Salerno-Pincente Ristorante opened in December, but since it's in Hodgkins, word did not reach Chicago until today. The restaurant, which was opened by relatives of the owners of Salerno's, offers pizza as well as a full Italian menu.

What makes this place special is that under the same roof, but accessible through a separate entrance, is Trackside OTB, an off-track betting facility. There, you can order pizza while watching horsies run fast on the 60 high definition televisions. So if you know your ponies, or have good luck, you can easily win enough money to cover the cost of your pizza.
