Great Pizza

The pizza and calzones are good, but huge servings. The only trouble with the pizza is I can only eat one piece!

This establishment has moved to its current location: 1241 Chicago Avenue (cross street Dempster Street). Coming from a business trip, I decided to order pizza as a take-out. I chose the toppings of pesto and anchovies. I live across the street so I simply returned in half hour later. Each bite is tasty and delicious. I have enough for the... More

The pizza is still good and has a unique buttery crust. The atmosphere has something to be desired, especially compared to their old location on Church St which is now 27 Live. The good part is you don't have to wait for a table anymore and at night their is a parking garage across the street that is free.

Found myself in town on a business trip and wanted somewhere informal to eat. Great puzza, freshly prepared with generous toppings and hearty minestrone soup. Very friendly service at great value for money prices.

Parking was a bit tight, but that's to be expected most of the time around good, popular restaurants on busy evenings. Quite clean throughout, including bathrooms. We had a great waitresss. Chairs might have been more comfortable, but .... that's picking a nit.... More

Because we were in Chicago, we wanted to experience deep-dish pizza, and we had heard that this place was good. When we got to the restaurant at 5:30 pm, there was only one other person eating. When we left around 6:45 pm, there was no one besides us eating. I always view that as a bad sign. I did notice... More
