This is one of our go to places and it has never disappointed. There is almost always a line up but that is because of the quality and value. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The pizza is amazing, the pasta dishes are all excellent and as much as you hate waiting when you are enjoying your meal you... More

A small venue but its fabulous food makes it a place to go for Italian food when in Hamilton. This restaurant was recently featured on "You Gotta Eat Here" and you should. Their red sauce is one of the best in the city in terms of acidic balance. Good sized portions at great pricing makes it a very popular place... More

Whether you eat in (very small venue) or take out the food on this varied Italian menu is excellent as well as being good value. While waiting for pick up you can see inside the clean, busy kitchen. Call well ahead on Saturdays for pick ups as there will be many others waiting too..

Very good & fresh Italian food. Best deep dish pizza I've ever had. Love their gnocchi. Regrettably, their hours are limited. They open at 4:30 p.m. Tues. - Thurs. & 4:00 p.m. Fri. - Sun. Typically, there is a lineup, especially on weekends. The deep dish pizza will take about 30 minutes from the time of order, but well worth... More

We have been customers of Chicago Style for many years and have never had a bad meal. The food is prepared fresh to order and the service is always efficient and friendly. Portions are very generous and pricing is fair. You get value for your money. If there is a negative, it is that they do not take reservations and... More

If you love "Grandma" style Italian cooking this is the place. Most entrees served smothered in cheese and tomato sauce. Not overly spicy unless you ask for it. Love their Antipasto salad. A meal in itself. Careful, they don't take reservations. The wait could be long for young kids. They do have takeout and some delivery.

We ordered Stracciatella Soup: tasty with lost of " wedding balls" It came with fresh bread - that was crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. very fresh. The... More

The best stuffed pizza I have ever had. I have never been to Chicago and had Chicago style pizza but I can't see how it could be better then Chicago Style Pizza in Hamilton. The sauce, cheese were so rich. Crust was just right. Service was also really great. Waitress had a great sense of humor.
