Great Atmosphere and nice food. We had a group of 8, it was no problem. Service was attentive. The only downside was the busboy eating in front of patrons and then serving food.

The menu is filled with various flatbread-type pizzas and small plates. The food is quite good. Can't beat it for a place to eat before catching a show at Space next door.

My wife and have been to this place many times in the past and hope the future. Their brick fired pizza is to die for. The craft mixed drinks are the best i have ever had. I even stole a few of the recipes for my own bar for parties and they are HUGE hit. Come early as they don't... More

Had dinner there twice this summer with a group of 4. Service from multiple servers on both occasions was attentive. Good selection of beers and interesting mixed drinks. The pizzas are unusual combinations -- we especially liked the prosciutto and arugula. From the small plates, we enjoyed the skirt steak and meatballs. The polenta pound cake is a delicious dessert.... More

I had heard great things about Union and we were excited to try it for the first time, We went around 6:30/7pm on a Thursday and the restaurant was busy, but not crazy busy. Which is why it was perplexing that it took about 10 minutes for a server to acknowledge us. When the server did finally come to our... More

We ate at the Union Pizzeria in Evanston and enjoyed it quite a bit. The choice of pizzas is truly different; I had one called ratatouille which was basically tomato and other vegetables. Very good.

Caught the delmark records show and had a bite and drinks at the bar afterwards. A great atmosphere and right by the L, making it easy to get back to the city afterwards. Excellent pizzas and soup (points off though for finding a piece of napkin in the soup!). The music venue in the rear is a fantastic place to... More

Union is a great spot for a casual meal or drink. Wood fired pizzas are the best items on the menu and can be enjoyed at the bar with a great craft cocktail or beer.

What a disappointment. First the food. If you enjoy pizza, you are in for surprise - this restaurant tells you what kind of pizza you can order. They serve about 10 different 14" pizzas basically for one person ( in the $15 range). The thin crust is ok, but don't ask for any additions to their choices - no onions,... More

I met my lifelong friend here (we haven't seen one another in 3 years). We visited for 3 hours and felt not pressure at all. The food was great. The service was quite nice. It became a bit loud around 8 just from all of the people. There was a very nice energy from the group.
