Better than I remembered

My wife and I prefer thin crust pizzas. It had been a few years since we last visited Chicago and I remembered Giordano's pizza as being too heavy. We arrived at our grandson's appartment hungry and were greeted by two large pizzas. Although there were 7 of us there, we only managed to eat about... read more

My husband and I travelled to Chicago for this first time this week and knew we had to try the famous pizza! Amazing!!! My husband and I split a small and couldn't even finish it. Not only was the pizza delish, the service was great as well! Definitely would return next time in Chicago!

Had the meaty/more meat pizza (small size) for the 3 of us. it was truly one of the best pizzas I've ever had. However, their system of making you wait at the table for an hour is plain dumb, they could have a waiting room and then seat you when your pizza is 5 mins away. a lot of wasted... More

We went to the Pulaski restaurant. Good Stuffed (1.5” thick) pizza. Reasonably priced. Once seated and having placed our order, it took 45 minutes for the pizza to be served (naturally takes longer to cook). Very clean restaurant. Good for the family. One small stuffed pizza was plenty for 2 adults. Expect a large to serve 4-5 people.

Friendly staff and a traditional Chicago dish. Be warned: portions are massive! Worth a visit for any tourist in the area.

If you visit Chicago you have to eat here. Some of the best pizza I have ever tasted. Make sure to get there early because it will get pack throughout the day.

Waited 10 minutes for the bar tender to bother to ask me for a drink. Food was quick, but not impressive. Restaurant looks old and tired. Does not look sparkling clean, although I did not noticed and real issues with cleanliness, it just does not give one the impression it is well maintained. The food was less than good, not... More

It was an experience you have to try when visiting. The line was a bit much and just thought the pizza was ok but we prefer NY pizza.

You have to try the deep dish pizza here. The aroma and the ambience are amazing. You have to try the deep dish pizza here. The aroma and the ambience are amazing.You have to try the deep dish pizza here. The aroma and the ambience are amazing.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
