I really love Patxi's Pizza ... delicious and unique combinations with a variety of crusts available. There's even a good gluten-free menu, if you're interested. My only complaint is that parking is extremely difficult in Palo Alto. Be patient, though, because the pizza is worth it!

Stopped here with the family while bringing our son out to get settled at Stanford. This pizza is memorable and crave-worthy! Well worth the 40 minute wait for the pies to cook. Be careful ordering, though, even my two linemen sons couldn't eat more than two slices! I would absolutely recommend this place - we will be back every time... More

The waiter did not put my order through, leading to em waiting for 30 mins with nothing. As soon as the mistake was realised the Manager and the team could not have been more apologetic or helpful. Ultimately, the pizza was very good and I went away a happy customer. I would definitely return.

In from out of town and having a very inconvenient day. Went to an establishment for dinner and experienced horrible service (actually no service) so decided to leave. We were hungry and frustrated and stopped at the next place on the street that was still serving food. It was pizza, which wouldn't have been our first choice, but, thank goodness... More

Chicago deep-dish pizzas can taste very different. The atmospheres and decorations in each restaurant are drastically different. I prefer my pizza like I first had it in Chicago at Pizzaria Due in midtown Chicago. None of these restaurants equal that. Which California location makes the best? Which has Chicago-like service... read on...

This place makes great pizza; not a fan of deep dish, I always push to compromise on thin crust and its always great. The arugula salad is awesome too, not just a few sprigs of arugula but a solid bowlful. All the good should be complimented with some info. It takes 30-45min to get a table and 30-45min to get...

I visited this restaurant with my family on a recommendation from a woman in a shop down the street. We loved it! The deep dish pizza was beyond tasty. Came back again later in the week and enjoyed it just as much! The pizza takes 40-45 minutes but is well worth the wait.

Most Californians think "deep dish" is thick crust - a loaf of bread with sauce. Those who know Chicago deep dish know it's thin crust, but lots of cheese and ingredients: a meal on a slice. Paxti's is as close as you can get.

Chicago pizza is in my blood (you are what you eat), and I get my transfusions at Patxi's. Delicious Chicago-style pizza with a tasty crust, plus beer & wine & soft drinks. The staff is friendly, the restaurant and restrooms are very clean, there are two televisions tuned to sporting events. Patxi's is WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE, and there's free parking in... More
