About Fasano

After a 25-year absence, one of Chicago's all-time great dessert names has made a triumphant return.

Pies by Fasano ("As Good As Mother's and Better Than Others") is as familiar and popular a Chicago name as Riverview or Bozo's Circus or Frango Mints.

Peter Fasano
Many thousands of Chicago-area moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas remember these mouth-watering pies fresh and warm from the Fasano bakery and outlet store on 65th Street---as well as from grocery stores, delicatessens, restaurants and even school cafeterias across the Chicago area. Many people still have the memorable Fasano pie tins as collectibles.

The successful return has been engineered by 
Peter Fasano, son of the legendary Joseph "Joe Pies" Fasano and grandson of the company founder.

Currently focused on selling pies through grocery stores, delis, cafes and restaurants, Peter Fasano also sells pies on a limited basis off the colorful new "Pies by Fasano" delivery truck, which criss-crosses the western suburbs most days---and occasionally the Loop. Fasano tips his locations to pie fans from his Facebook page.

The new Fasano truck, which includes the names of four generations of Fasanos, is also a clever tip of the cap to Peter's grandfather, Joseph Fasano Sr., who began selling pies off a horse-drawn wagon in Chicago over 70 years ago---years before he founded the family business in 1946.

Fasano Pies, freshly-baked in an incredibly delicious crust and bursting with real fruit, are currently available in apple, dutch apple, cherry and blueberry. Both full-size and "junior" pies are available.

Please be sure and click the "Where to Buy Pie" tab on this website to learn where Fasano Pies are available near you.

And if you see the Fasano Pie truck on the road, be sure to honk, wave and flag it down. Chances are, the most delicious pie you'll ever taste is inside, waiting for you!

  2. OMG!!! When I saw Fasano pies at Mariano's, I almost fainted! When I was a little girl, every Sunday we'd go to Fasano's on 65th and get 2 pies and 6 little pound cakes. Please please please bring back the mini pound cakes! Welcome back Fasono's!

  6. Wow - I remember Fasono's outlet on 65th. We'd go there and buy the pies with broken crust or something that made them imperfect. They were very reasonable and delicious. I couldn't believe it when I saw the add in our church's Sunday Bulletin. Good memories.

  10. Saw your colorful truck today and it brought back many good memories.
    We loved when Dad would stop on his way home from work for Fasano desserts! The pies, mini pound cakes, and the best banana cake and chocolate cream pie ever! I will be visiting Mariano's tomorrow.

  12. When I was a little girl and I lived on 63rd and Narragansett my mom, sister and I would go to Fasano's outlet store and purchase the coconut cream pie. I didn't especially like that one pie but I'm older now and really wish I had that coconut cream pie or the banana cream pie. Hope you will have another outlet store like the one on 65th street. Thanks Fasano

  13. Can't believe Fasano's pies are still around. Brings back childhood memories of when mom and dad bought them on 65th. Hubby can't stop talking about how good the apple pie is.

  14. Memories of great bakery delights make an automatic market for you. Thanks for bringing the pies back. Will look forward to seeing the little cakes, too!

  15. I saw your truck on Friday near Lincoln Park. My dad (Phil Evans) worked for Fasano for many years (he was the office manager/accountant until 1978). He said they made the real money in the fall, with pumpkin pie. I wish you'd bring back the mini pound cakes and the chocolate cupcakes - those were my favorite!
