Great vegetarian options, good service

We have been dining at Patxi's for years - they specialize Chicago style deep dish, but they also have thin crust pizza. We get their vegetarian pizzas (veggie, or spinach pesto). They do whole wheat crusts & low fat cheese as well. Consider pre-ordering your pizza by phone to reduce the 30 minute... read more

I was in Palo Alto last Wednesday on business, and decided to grab a taste of Chicago-style pizza. The reviews for Patxi's looked good, and so did the pizza. But instead of eating in, I decided to take the pizza back to my hotel room for a more private meal. I ordered the pizza by phone, and was told it... More

Be prepare to wait. We had to wait for 45 minutes to sit down. The place was completely packed! The place is clean and simple looking. The staff is very friendly and helpful. As for the food, well I think I like normal pizza more, but nonetheless it was a good delicious pizza. Supper filling and oh so messy. Get... More

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
