Saputos is old school, supper club type Italian food. I have been coming here for decades and the food, while not fancy, is consistently great. The service is top notch with several waitresses that have worked there for years. I like the baked Rigatoni with meatballs. Also, their Saputos antipasto plate is a great start to a meal. I enjoy the Italian dishes, but what really sets the place apart are their steaks. I almost always now get an Italian breaded filet mignon. The beef is locally butchered, never frozen and superbly cooked. Whatever size the cut is listed at, it's always a couple ounces larger. It's not inexpensive for Springfield, but it's about 2/3 the price of a top Chicago steakhouse. I have rarely had a better steak. Enjoy!
We've dined at Suputo's five times in the last several years and have not been disappointed. The Italian breaded filet mignon is out of this world! A big steak, juicy and tender, covered with a crusted Italian breading. I've also had several of the pasta dishes and they have always been fresh, homemade and good. The salad is a perfect compliment to the steak. We didn't have room for a potato since the steak was so large. Suputo's has been in business since 1948 and with the fine dining they continue to offer, know it will be around for a very long time.
I was on business in Springfield and staying at the Doubletree across the street from the restaurant. It was recommended by the hotel as a great locally owned Italian restaurant and I wasn't disappointed. I had the Chicken Parm, which was a generous serving and really good. The atmosphere has a vintage 70's look, which I found appealing. My meal with a couple glasses of wine was around $35. I sat at the bar and the lady bartender was great. I would highly recommend trying this place!
