great little restaurant...jumped up to the top of my list

This is a great little place on the mountain in Hamilton. Was introduced to it by locals. It's a very authentic place. We had to wait in line to get a table, but it was totally worth it. Great portion sizes, prices and staff were very helpful.

My significant other and I ordered pizza to go. I was confused when I looked at the pizza because it did not look like your regular pizza. I ate it and it was good but you do require utensils to eat this pizza, you cannot pick it up!

This pizza is worth every penny. Give it a shot and you know this review paid off. When you order allow 45 minutes to 1hr to cook. Totally worth the wait

This is one of those super busy little places that I really cannot figure out why it is so busy and so popular. It is "Okay" but in my opinion ... just that ... OK I had pizza of course because I do love to find a truly good pizza but based on the above comment ... you know what... More

Went here on the recommendation of a relative. We were advised of the long waits but must have hit a slow time on a Sun afternoon as we were seated immediately. My wife and I split a small deep dish and our daughter had the Lasagne. It was a bit of a wait for the pizza but they warn you... More

This place is excellent. My family and I haven't been in almost three years, but we went last night. The food it great, and so is the staff. It can be a little busy, but it's worth the wait. Considering it is so busy, I think the staff handles the customers well - anything you need, they're on top of... More

My family and I were at this restaurant for a family celebration. We have been before and knew the food was good. The service is terrible. The waitress has been there for awhile because we have had her before, and nothing has changed. One family member had never been to Chicago Pizza before and was taken back by how rude... More

Small restaurant, so make a reservation if eating in. They are always busy, and expect a least an hour wait for take-out orders, but well worth the wait, when you taste their pizza, especially stuffed. Always a favourite in my house, though a little pricier than most, it is worth the price!
