After reading multiple reviews I figured I'd try it out. I got a wa-pa-ghetti's specialty pizza. I really wanted it to be good, but the taste was just average.

eat-in or take-out; daily specials; all you can eat deals for $7.50; Monday $1.95 pizza slices -- very generous size and quite tasty; video gaming; plenty of parking a friendly, neighborhood-type pizzeria -- casual dining -- been around since 1979. There's another location in Mundelein.

Grew up on their pizza and have never had any like it anywhere else. Happy to say that decades later it's just as delicious!!

I like to stop by here and get an Italian salad, with the drink included it's really a bargain. Friendly service and Three Stooges pictures on the wall. What more can you ask for?

People that really don't know Chicago refer to Chicago as a deep pizza (Chicago Style) town. The truth is, many types of pizza coexist peacefully in the metro area. Having so many types leads to cross fertilization and experimentation. This pizza is not just very good, it's unique. It has a heavier average thickness soft shell with a bready edge... More

Wapaghetti's is the first place I call when I want affordable and reliable catering for any size group. They have catered trays of pasta and all kinds of pizza to my home, my church, and my business. Reasonable prices, reliable delivery, and awesome food! Pizza can be thin or thick crust. Pasta and garlic bread are always a favorite! And... More

I paid my first visit to Wa-pa-ghetti's Pizza last week. I am somewhat of a pizza snob and I wasn't really in the mood to try something new. Surprise, surprise, I LOVED this Pizza! I love thick crust pizza and I love sweet sauce and flavorful cheese. Their pizza crust was some of the best that I've tasted. It was... More

The owner is my absolute favorite restaurant owner. He is kind, considerate, fun and brings out the best in what a non chain restaurant or business should be. He also throws pizza parties for kids where they learn how to make their own pizzas. A favorite of local police and fireman. Great beef sandwiches and great daily specials. Also Joe... More

This is one of our favorite local pizza joints. They definitely don't skimp on the ingredients. The mozzarella cheese alone is reminiscent of when pizzas were made with real ingredients rather than the thin, snappy stuff the chains pass off as cheese today. Very doughy crust which is nothing like thin crust or deep dish but it's own concoction. Might... More
