We were recommended to come here by the athletic hotel. The pie was alright. I was expecting a little more from Chicago pizza but we didn't try deep dish so maybe when I visit again I can give it another try

This is a popular Downtown restaurant close to Millennium Park, so there's usually a wait. But it's worth it. The food is great - especially the pizza. We first heard about Pizzano's because OPRAH said it was her favorite pizza in Chicago. I can see why.

Ate here during a weekend stay in September. The food was good (pizza and salad) but not great at all. A solid meal but nothing that stood out that would bring us back. What set the evening back a little more was that our waitress was less than attentive - and we really do not need or want much attention.... More

This was our first visit to Pizano's - we were looking for something different than the big chain pizza joints of Giordano's and Gino's - and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was easier to make a reservation for (and the fact that you could make a reservation was great, in and of itself) , and it had a nice... More

We split a fried ravioli appetizer (tasty) and an excellent "small" size deep dish pizza. Both/all were delicious. Crust/filling on the 'za was on point. Service was solid but unspectacular. Still, I would recommend and return again.

I met The Chach for the first time! He was amazing. I loved having him as our waiter as he provided not just fantastic service but an amazing time as well. My 2 friends, my wife, and I were in town from Michigan to visit a friend fighting cancer in the hospital and this man just simply made our night.... More

We had been to the hour plus wait, touristy pizza places and just wanted something a little lower key with good pizza. This place was just right...suggested by Susie at the Renaissance. We were able to put our name in through Open Table and sat down at our desired time. A smaller place that was nicely decorated with lights inside... More

Caesar, antipasto sales were just ok. Dressings didn't taste house made. Our deep dish wasn't really as deep as expected. Our thin crust sausage and onion was the best item ordered. Service though was quick and attentive.

My husband and I came here randomly on a Saturday night. It was after 8pm and there were plenty of tables open but the hostess told us there was a 20 minute wait. We ended up sitting at the bar - plenty of open seats and you can still order off of the full menu. There were multiple tvs in... More
