Great home made taste!

The pasta sauce here is amazing. Pizza and pasta are both tasty. Great variety on the menu. Recommend making a reservation since there is limited seating and it can get quite busy. There is a separate take out area so if you can't get a seat feel free to order some dishes to take home. Great... read more

I hesitate to make this review too good . If your not there when they open you will have to wait . It is well worth the wait . It is a very small place with amazing food. I love the chicken parmesan but any food is great . I hope it doesn't get busier now . Recommend this restaurant... More

Well worth the wait if you are eating in the restaurant, but I usually order the deep dish to go. You will not be hungry. The food is fresh and the deep dish is addictive. Whenever I have visitors from out of town, they know I love Chicago style pizza and I am afraid I have created more deep dish... More

We have been eating food from Chicago Style Pizza for over 20 years. In fact, I probably eat here to much! It is within 2 kilometers of our home and is surrounded by residential neighbourhoods. The food here is really good, tastes homemade and well priced. If I have one complaint, it is that the restaurant was profiled on You've... More

New Food Friday #19 We ordered: Goat Cheese Bruschetta (Delicious!) Large Deep Dish Pizza with Italian Sausage, Pepperoni, Bacon (Waaaaaay too much food for two people. We had pizza for days after. Also, I'd suggest not having sausage as it comes it big chunks.) Tiramisu (Amazing!) When people say to come early, I think they mean about 15 minutes before... More

We ordered a large pizza with lots and lots of toppings and the straciatella soup. The soup was a little too salty but the pizza was wonderful. Generous toppings and the price was reasonable. Now that we have a menu I am looking forward to trying some of their other dishes. They don't open until 4:30 so there is no... More

okay, my mistake was to have ordered a large pizza for 2 people ahaha, it was the biggest pizza we have ever seen!!! Super deep dish with layers of toppings and dough and sauce. For almost $40 I wish I had been a little more informed when I asked about the large pizza (She told me it was fine for... More

I've heard only great things about Chicago Style Pizza and the rumours did not let me down. Make sure to get the deep dish pizza and go on Tuesday evenings. There is always a line up out the door on weekends and some other week nights! :)
