I always get take out from here because it is always bonkers. Is the pizza good? Yes, but you should try the pasta. It is soooo good. The lasagna is the best I have ever had. I usually order the large. Their sauce is out of this world. I could drink it. Anything with the Alfredo sauce is also good.... More

Ordered pizza from here. While I will say that if you are used to eating fast food-style pizzas, it will be a step up from that. However, having been to Italy and tasting pizza made from fresh ingredients and making it in a similar fashion at home, I can not say that I enjoyed it. Although it is a Chicago... More

Although Chicago is a very small restaurant and doesn't take reservations they are well worth waiting for. Arrive hungry and go early to avoid a long wait. They have amazing pizza both regular and stuffed. Their pasta and pizza are just like Nonna made.

Love the pasta and pizza. Just have to get there early or you will be waiting !!!!! You can get either a small portion or a large portion. I like to get the large so I have left overs for lunch

This place has been around for a while and they consistently deliver good food. I say deliver as it is quite the wait to get in due to their fame. Even for delivery, you need to call early and be patient on those Friday and Saturday nights. The no self respect pizza is a craving in itself and their deep... More

This place has really good food. A little salty. But still delish. Try the ravioli or the chicken parm. Yum

We visit Chicago Style 4-5 times per year from out of town and have been doing so for 15 years. Yes you should arrive early if you wish to avoid waiting to be seated and the indoor waiting area can get crowded! However, in the warmer weather months you can sit outdoors on their benches to await your table. The... More
