Great vibe, good food

Four of us has two pizzas, Mac & cheese, and spinach salad, plus three appetizer dishes. The pizzas were excellent, hot, and tasteful, the Mac & cheese very creamy, and the "small" spinach salad enough for two. The wine choice is broad, and we especially liked the Cabernet and the Sangiovese... read more

The food here is great -- fresh and delicious. Sort of pizzeria meets gastro pub. Interesting cocktails, and a reasonable beer list (although only a couple of the beers are on tap). They do not take reservations, so expect to wait unless you arrive early. Our server was very attentive, and the appetizers came quickly. Although we were there early... More

I have heard great things about this restaurant and was rather disappointed when I arrived. I understand their lack of need for reservations since they are very busy, but their food deployment was definitely not acceptable. For a restaurant that has two kitchens, and has been in business for many years, they should be able to get the delivery of... More

Union has such a cool vibe here! Relaxed seating including cushy chairs. Great electronic music. Terrific bar set up. Are you sure this is a "pizza joint?" I came down to Evanston to meet up with some friends and am glad we happened across this place. We spent the majority of the evening kicking back and enjoying the scene at... More

An informal atmosphere with excellent pizza- my husband loved the lamb sausage one. There are also enough side dishes and small plates for someone like me not ordering pizza these days. The service was also very fast. This is our favorite of several dinners in Evanston restaurants. My husband loved the lamb sausage pizza. And there were plenty of small... More

Salads are huge, pizza is great and original. Plenty of beer/wine choices. Wish I'd been able to stick around for dessert!

This evening a friend and I went To the Union Pizzeria before the Kinky Friedman concert. What a new gem for either a fall in or destination. Heather,one of the owners, was most hospitable taking care of a party of two under the name of Walk-on; she too had a great sense of humor. Our waitress Allison is 5 star.... More

I have been a number of times. Great social venue wines by the glass, appetizers are great and a little unique. Smells so good from the kitchen and the huge pizza over in view! Will be back

Every opportunity we get, my wife and I head straight for Union on Sunday morning for brunch. I unfailingly order the omelet of the day, which is always marvelous and always comes with a beautiful salad and extraordinary toast with delectable butter and jam! My wife, the virtuous one, orders their kale/apple/brussels sprout salad, which is delicious if you're into... More
