Chicago Pizza is unique. Very few restaurants outside the Chicago area can duplicate the famous pie. Patti's is one of those. I have been a faithful Patxi's customer since the restaurant opened in down town Palo Alto, several years ago. They now offer a pan pizza, similar to the deep dish but with only one layer of dough. It is... More

I lived in Chicago for a long time. And while visiting Palo Alto, I heard about this place. I stopped in and loved the atmosphere right from the start. It's downtown and I had no problem parking across the street. The place was busy but the service was extremely good, as was the food. I got "The Matt Cain" and... More

So I was taken to this place for the first time by my GF who goes there a couple times a month . My first impression was that they really push there drinks and they are expensive but the food when it arrived was really outstanding . I enjoyed the piazza a lot .

We arrived in Palo Alto on a Saturday after a full day of travel from the East coast. We were hungry and a bit tired. We were seated promptly at 5:00. The menu is extensive with several different types of pizza to choose including thin crust, deep dish, etc... We ordered a few drinks and were told by the waiter... More

Visiting Palo Alto, I googled best pizza for a quick dinner. Patxi's came up. It was easy to order and pick up and the pizza very good. 3 of us shared the small 10" and their Caesar salad. Crust had a nice olive oil flavor and our filling, pepperoni, mushrooms and garlic (substituted for black olives) was delicious. Dining in,... More

I love deep dish pizza and Patxi's is the best one in the area! The crust is very flaky, I always finish the crust. We usually get the spinach pizza and the sauce is well balanced giving a perfect pizza experience. Their bruschetta appetizer is really good too with burrata cheese and pesto, but salads are just average. Go for... More

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.
