Stick with pizza, if you can

It is pretty nice friendly busy place in downtown Northbrook. The food is different story, all entrees and appetizers we tried over last couple years are average. However, the claim to fame is pizza, and it is good. We prefer thin crust gourmet pizzas. Tried several, and all were flavorful, and... read more

This is my favorite thin crust pizza place. Order the sausage and you'll get a pie with lots of meat and the sweetest sauce around. The large is large but I always savor the leftovers for breakfast the next day. I'm getting hungry just writing this review. Gotta run, bye!

A lot of people like this place, personally cannot stand it and would never go in except a friend loves it so occasionally I'll bite the bullet. Don't get me wrong, I'm Italian...I like garlic...to a point. Everything I've eaten there has so much garlic that it actually burns your mouth. On my most recent visit I ordered a veggie... More

We booked a party for 70 people and on 6 separate occasions tried to call to get details about the event over a couple month time period. They never returned the phone call and we called the general manager today to inquire. Instead of asking how he could help he accused us of lying about the fact that we had... More

Love the super thin pizzas and the broasted chicken but the prices are way to expensive for what you end up with. 16 pieces of 'chicken only' is $34 after tax, a thin 18" pizza with one ingredient is in the $23 range and that one ingredient is hard to find. A four piece chicken vesuvio dinner is $18 and... More

we go here twice a month. all the food is delicious but our favorite is the broasted chicken. they have 3 or 4 different kinds but the garlic broasted is to die for, we don't get chicken anywhere else, it's always lively and most of the time we go for dinner it gets really crowded early so get there early....

Our family dines here with some consistency. The servers are nice, the food is good, the prices are reasonable, we see our friends from the neighborhood, its just one of those places... not stellar, but certainly solid and well-rounded. Also, they have a great party room next door for special occasions. We recommend it!
