Came with a 10 person group at lunch without reservations (not recommended). Manager was able to seat us in 15 minutes downstairs, which had a nice ambience, quieter than main floor. Appetizers good, Pizza was Awesome. Waiter paid very good attention. He asked if the Pizza was good, and I said better than Pizza Hut in Oklahoma! Good laugh for... More

This place has such good pizza I dont know where to begin the review. I met someone in Chicago from Spain and he asked me "what food do I try that if I go back to Spain and not had it, I would regret it for the rest of my life?" Well, I took him to my favorite pizza place,... More

Tried two other deep dish Chicago specialty pizzas that will remain nameless but this one is the best! We stopped in to watch the World Cup and met a great bartender named Brian. Brian said that after working there for 18 years, he was still tempted by the pizza every single day! We didn't eat that day (too full of... More

We ate twice in Pizano's Chicago - the atmosphere was great and the service excellent. The pasta dishes were delicious and I would definitely recommend these. Also had a pizza - fairly average compared to the pasta dishes!

Newly opened next to Victory Gardens location. Very attentive staff. But, they charge $2.50 if you want to change a type of sauce on your pasta. I substitute sauces all the time and have never been charged even in very expensive restaurants. Had the spinach and cheese ravioli, which was just ok. Won't go back.

Having never had deep dish Chicago, I was told Pizano's had a good pizza. The service was fairly efficient but not particularly friendly. The pizza was OK, but I suppose Chicago style is just not my style. I might give them another try the next time I'm nearby though.

Really disappointing after reading so many positive reviews. Right off, they commit the cardinal sin of overlooking their pasta; indeed, there grossly over cook it leading me to suspect that it isn't freshly prepared. The sauce is nothing to write home about, the meatsauce is ok but way too chunky for my taste. The spinach and cheese ravioli was rather... More

This thin crust everyone said was so great was like the cafeteria pizza we got in grade school. It tasted like cornbread and was just dry and awful. We should have gone for deep dish.
