Salvatore's Italian Grill sounds more like a restaurant, but inside, it quickly becomes clear: The bar is where it's happening. Located on the outer road of Highway 94 near Jungerman in St. Charles, the front entrance of Salvatore's opens into a non-smoking restaurant setting, with murals of the Italian
countryside painted on the walls. But after that it opens up into a much bigger bar area where smoking is allowed, the TVs are on and, sometimes, there's even live music. Good news: The full menu of pizza, sandwiches, steak, pasta and salad are offered right at the bar. There are also beer specials during late-night happy hour Monday through Friday from 9 p.m. to midnight and all day Sunday.
