Did you learn to bowl at Masi’s?

West Dundee’s go-to restaurant for Pizza, Masi’s was also a bowling alley and banquet hall.  There were multiple levels and dining rooms as well as a carryout location.

If you have any Masi’s images or menus to share please contact us.


They have been in business for 67 years. It started with the bowling alley. The full service restaurant was added later on.

Originally owned by the Masi brothers Jim, Nick and Phil, along with Joe Sylvester, they are best known for their pizza, and bowling alley. They serve a wide range of Italian food in their restaurant. American food is available too. They also have a cocktail lounge.  Put that all together and you find a very popular banquet hall.  They opened in the 1950’s on Main Street in Dundee and are still operating today but not at the original location on the river.

They were also very involved in local youth sports and sponsored many different teams and leagues.

Please check out all of the great Masi’s images and files from the past.
