At Bernardi’s II Italian Restaurant, we’re confident you’ll leave with a smile on your lips. Our tortellini and other famous pasta dishes will transport you to Northern Italy, from which our family emigrated more than eight decades ago. We couple fresh ingredients with our timeless Italian recipes that were passed down from generation to generation to make an incredible culinary experience for each of our visitors

A Great Legacy

For more than 80 years, our restaurant has been serving authentic Italian cooking to our Bernardi’s customers. We expanded from our first location, which opened in Toluca, IL during the 1930s, because people continued to flock to our family restaurant for our famous tortellini and spaghetti. As we grew, we made sure to preserve the flavor of our real Northern Italian cooking. In 2005, we made the move to Pontiac, IL. Now, Bernardi’s II one of five proud restaurants in Bernardi’s restaurant family.

Not Only Italian Food!
