After emigrating from Monte Prandone in 1913, August Bamonti founded Savoia's restaurant. The restaurant began back in 1934 when August "Gus" Bamonti converted an old grocery store into a neighborhood tavern in a small Italian community on the far south side of Chicago. Gus', as it was called then, was located in a highly industrial area of town and it became a popular and convenient stopover for workers going to and from their places of employment. As an incentive in a highly competitive business, "Gus" would give free sandwiches to anyone patronizing his tavern. This business promotion had unintended results. Gus' acquired a reputation for fine food - from this, starting with a limited menu, luncheons and dinners were served.
