Whatever you get make sure you add a meatball !! Homemade and the best ever!! The stuffed pizza is an experience in itself like no other!! Don't forget the salad with homemade house dressing!!

Recently returned to Chicago. Food is just as good, large portions, that fine Italian flavour you look for. Have enjoyed pizza and lasagna. Can't wait to return for the speggetti

If you love good pie and are really hungry you need to try the no respect pizza at Chicago style. You will understand why they named it that after ordering. It is so amazing but super filling so do go over board when ordering.

Excellent! This is a long established mountain restaurant. We avoid the wait for a table and opt for take out! Generous portion size allows for left overs for next day lunch! The is one of my families favourite take outs! Enjoy.

We found this little gem on the recommendation of a work colleague and the rest is history. We go there for special occasions and if we want a really good deep dish pizza we will even get take out. Quaint little restaurant that gets very busy but that is because the food is worth the wait!

We've been here before this post and have always enjoyed the food. Street parking is available (no parking lot). We called in advance of leaving our house and were told there was a half an hour wait. By the time we drove the 1km, the wait exceeded an hour and a half. Let's see now if it was worth it…... More

We have been here a few times and have had their pizza, different pasta dishes, bruchetta, and garlic bread. Everything is homemade and taste awesome. Their portion sizes are generous and affordable. The place is small so we dont get a spot all the time because they are popular. However if you do get a spot its a nice atmosphere.... More

If you like deep dish Chicago style pizza, this is very much like the real thing. If you want to eat in though, you'd better go early because it seems to be packed and lined up every time we go.

They drench everything with this cheap , tasteless , watery sauce . If you order something with cheese they put buckets and buckets of it to the point that you can't see the food you are eating . Gross and ridiculous . Ravioli is the tasteless frozen kind . The spaghetti with meat sauce has little meat . Seems to... More
