“Authentic Deep Dish Italian pizza downtown Chicago”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

This small Italian restaurant is attached to but not run by a hotel in downtown Chicago.
Although no frills (you seat yourselves), the service was superb by part-owner and waiter.
We had deep dish pizza which was very good. Their smaller menu, also, had other Italian dishes.
The simple ambience was nice.

“Free....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Our hotel gave us tickets for a free breakfast at Pizzeria Ora. I got the Waffles with bacon and my husband got 2 eggs, bacon & toast. It was free therefore no complaints. Service was good and fast. Only negative was the cheaply orange juice.

“Good Not Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

The stuffed pizza was good with a cornmeal crust, but I prefer Giordano's Pizza. The service was good and the pizza was reasonably priced. I stayed near this place and decided to try it out. I enjoyed my pizza and experience, but I like other places better than Pizzeria Ora.

“A MUST VISIT EVERYTIME!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This is the VERY BEST pizza we've ever had! We just happened to stumble in a couple of years ago while looking for an authentic pizza place. It's very casual dining; feel free to stop in after a whole day of running around and just relax! This deep dish pizza is so good that we allow time to eat at this location every trip to Chicago, it's well worth the wait while it cooks. A family owned & operated business that takes a lot of pride in the food they serve. Everyone is very friendly and service is always good. Reasonable prices. Thanks for a great meal.

“Best white pizza and great bar service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Decided to stop in since it was the lounge for my hotel and was so surprised at the food and the service. Watched first half of Buckeye game and really enjoyed the setting, the drinks, and the conversation! Highly recommended!!
