Great Chicago style deep dish pizza. Not much atmosphere, but who cares with food like this. A little hard to find as it is tucked away in a non-descript strip mall. Great prices and service.

Luckily we got here before people started coming. The dining area was pretty small. There was only one server, but the service was great. Pizza felt like it took awhile, but then again, I was very hungry. We customized our pizza, great crust and fluffy dough, but the pesto sauce got cooked into the pizza so you couldn't taste it....

Authentic Chicago Style or not Pizz'a offers an above average pie. I actually like this joint more than Uno. The sauce is excellent, the crust is tasty (not greasy like a lot of deep dish pizzas), and the price was just right. I did not try any of the appetizers (other than a salad) but the main course was just... More

I needed some pizzas delivered for a business luncheon and one of our Sales reps recommended Pizz'A Chicago. Wow! This is the way pizza should be cooked! Yes, I love the coal and wood fired thin pizzas and I have enjoyed them in Italy and Sicily but my heart and taste buds favor very thick crust Chicago style! We orders... More

Once slice, and you're full. Okay, I eat two because I am a glutton. These are Chicago-style deep dish pizzas much like what you will find in CHI-Town. Nothing like the thin crust or gimmicky pizzas you see everywhere else. Price isn't the cheapest, nor is it that easy to find if you're not from the area (Behind The Fish... More

Cute little place in San Jose - a tiny place, but great Chicago memorabilia and nice staff that is very Midwestern in feel. A good sauce that is very much like a good sweet home Chicago style sauce and it really was quite tasty. Nothing like a real true deep dish 'za like at Gino's East downtown, but it was... More

I am probably the farthest thing from a vegetarian, but the Al Bundy pizza doesn't have any meat and in my opinion, doesn't need it. It is this great group of flavors of whole Garlic cloves, feta cheese, sun dried tomatoes, and great sauce. from the ingredients, it sounds like it would go together, but it does! I get this... More

Nice beer selection including some seasonal beers (I had a seasonal Sam Adams that was darker and tastier than the usual). Pizza (pizz'a?) was ok. Tasty enough and stopped me being hungry but not as dense in terms of toppings as I'd expect (having eaten at pizzeria uno in Chicago). Nowhere near enough cheese - essentially it wasn't unhealthy enough... More

Small restaurant which obviously specialises in Chicago style deep pan pizzas. I'm not a fan of deep base pizza as I usually prefer the thin crust, however this was a truely excellent Pizza. Good selection of beers on tap, not so busy for a lunchtime which was nice, and both the staff and other patrons were happy, easy going and... More

Very small restaurant with mostly pick up and delivery orders. Offers pizza, lasagna, calzones, and a few other dishes and sandwiches. Really good pizza and friendly staff.
