Cash Only, Tastes Great

Love their pizza and cheesy beef on garlic bread... It's literally made by Mama Nitti herself, This is comfort food at it's finest.

I didn't think the pizza was very good. My wife went there a couple of times and our opinion was not favorable.

Don't be fooled by the small size and unassuming appearance of this place. This is the best pizza you ever had, AND you purchase it by the slice, so everyone gets what they want. Also, the cheesy garlic beef sandwiches and cannolis are magnificent. And you will love the bargain prices.

This is a family owned local pizzeria, that has a great menu and their pizza by the slice is the best ever! I love that they are in the neighborhood! They are reasonably priced and care about their customers! My favorite pizza EVER!

Had to have deep dish pizza and it was really good. I would recommend that you don't get a lot of toppings because it gets soggy. The sausage and cheese pizza was to rave about, it sausage is one big piece that covers the whole pizza never seen it before but it was great. I would make it a stop... More

Pizza by the slice is very greasy and to be honest disguisting, it was just taken out of the oven when we walked in. if you get the whole pizza delivered it's completely different, why? I don't understand

I have had the Italian Beef (which they roast and slice on premisis!), the Italian Sausage and the pizza. Everything served here is way above par and it has a quiet location with decent parking. A great place for delicious, casual ding or take it home.

The owners here have run this pizzeria for many years. I was lucky to finally find the place in my child home town of Niles but not til 2001. They moved to Des Plaines in roughly 2006. I'm surprised it took me so long because members of my family went to school with the owners' kids/grandkids and I know them... More
