“Best spaghetti in town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

The meatballs are to die for. The pizza is fantastic. Too bad there is very little space to eat in. They should expand their operation. But take out is OK.

“Always great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2011

This is authentic homemade Italian food at it's best, and, great value. We always get our favourite pasta dishes, but the stuffed pizza is amazing. My only caution is that this is a very small restaurant, and very popular, so you may have to wait to be seated.

“Excellent Quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2011

This restaurant makes wonderful Italian food. The quality is top notch. We love their lasagna - true authentic Italian taste. Portions are very generous.
Would recommend to anyone who likes homemade Italian cuisine.

“Favourite restaurant in Hamilton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2011

I loved visiting Chicago Style, and I know I will be back there time and time again.
From the outside the restaurant looks like a hole in the wall, but it is definitely worth a step inside. It is a smaller restaurant with a big heart. Everyone I went with was thoroughly satisfied with their meals. The portions are 'true' Italian portions, they were very large (and that was only the small size portions) I can't imagine what the actual 'large' size portions (as they have coined them) are like. The food was absolutely delicious, being an Italian it is hard to find authentic Italian food at a restaurant that I enjoy, but I found it at this location.

I can't wait to return here!!
