“Get there early!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

A small venue but its fabulous food makes it a place to go for Italian food when in Hamilton. This restaurant was recently featured on "You Gotta Eat Here" and you should. Their red sauce is one of the best in the city in terms of acidic balance. Good sized portions at great pricing makes it a very popular place with the locals...sooooo since you can' take reservations, get there early!

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Whether you eat in (very small venue) or take out the food on this varied Italian menu is excellent as well as being good value. While waiting for pick up you can see inside the clean, busy kitchen. Call well ahead on Saturdays for pick ups as there will be many others waiting too..

“Great Pizza & Gnocchi.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Very good & fresh Italian food.

Best deep dish pizza I've ever had. Love their gnocchi. Regrettably, their hours are limited. They open at 4:30 p.m. Tues. - Thurs. & 4:00 p.m. Fri. - Sun. Typically, there is a lineup, especially on weekends. The deep dish pizza will take about 30 minutes from the time of order, but well worth it.

Bon appetit!!!

“A longtime favourite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

We have been customers of Chicago Style for many years and have never had a bad meal. The food is prepared fresh to order and the service is always efficient and friendly. Portions are very generous and pricing is fair. You get value for your money. If there is a negative, it is that they do not take reservations and you may have to wait to get a table.
