I miss this pizza more than any other food from up north. If you really want THE BEST PIZZA that Chicago has to offer, this is your destination. Forget ever hearing about the garbage that is Giordano's, Uno's, Gino's, Lou Malnati's (though Lou Malnati's is...my #2 fav), or any other place!!! This is the deep dish pizza that will haunt your dreams after you try it. My soul misses this pizza.More

I don’t know why more people don’t come here! After Lincoln park zoo we walked here. It’s exceptionally good food and usually no wait. These a cute little park nearby if there is a wait. I always get the spinach supreme bambino (no mushrooms) and...it’s the perfect size. My husband gets a small cheese and sausage and it’s delicious. Good beer and wine menu. Love coming here!More

As we were seated, I immediately felt something on the floor, two dirty butter knives that were left under the table for awhile now. My fiancé and I didn’t mind that so we ordered two appetizers and a small stuffed pizza; it all came to...the table at the same time. Bad timing on the food. What’s the point of ordering appetizers if your main course is coming at the same time? To top off the meal, I reached for my water glass and almost screamed as I saw a large ROACH crawling my glass which I had to kill so it wouldn’t get away. The manager who was also our waitress didn’t seem surprised and only discounted half the bill. She even had the audacity to ask if we wanted a box for our food. Such an unprofessional place with horrible customer service. Disgusting and repulsive. I feel sorry for the owner.More

We had a delightful couples lunch at Bacino's. We started with generous and delicious salads - a beautiful combination salad customized to my wife's requests (no raw onions, goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette on the side), and a wonderful Caesar with exceptional house made dressing....We then shared a medium pizza with artichokes, green peppers, and spinach. The pizza was delicious, with great flavors from all ingredients. Our server was friendly, helpful, and attentive. He simply got everything right. Bacino's would be great for a group - more people would enable diners to try more dishes. We'll be back!More

I was traveling with a group and Bacino's was right up the street from where we had to be. They were accommodating, answering questions, recommending items, etc. I had a personal size stuffed pizza and a glass of wine. Everything tasted fresh. They will definitely...be on my radar during my next visit. Please note that if you are in a hurry, this may not be the best option for you because the pizzas take time to cook.More

I have had Chicago styled Pizza, and it’s a nice experience. But, if you want pizza the way it’s supposed to be prepared, Bacino’s is that place. The pizza is among the best I’ve had. Great, friendly service.

We’ve been going to Bacino’s for more than 30 years and would never order stuffed or deep dish pizza anywhere else in Chicago. The restaurant itself has a fun neighborhood atmosphere. The small stuffed spinach is plenty big for two. Tons of cheese and spinach,...good crust, and a flavorful homemade sauce. If you can’t get to the Lincoln Park location, Bella Bacinos downtown is great as well, although more of a restaurant feel than a pizza place. If you want real neighborhood Chicago pizza, skip all the tourists at Giordano’s, Malnati’s, etc and hop the red line to Fullerton and make the short walk to Bacino’s! You’ll be glad you did.More

Looked up a pizza place in the neighborhood based in reviews. Wanted to try famous Chicago's deep dish pizza and weren't disappointed at all. Actually pizza was absolutely delicious. We got a small as it was suggested cheese with spinach and mushrooms and it was...to big for two of us to finish. I can't stop talking about this pizza. The crust was thin and plenty of cheese and spinach. Simply delicious!!!! Would definitely recommend and come back to this restaurant!!!! Yammy !!!More

This was the second time having deep dish in Chicago having been to Gino's before. No-one had actually mentioned this place as a favourite but it was close so we gave it a try. The cheese and spinach garlic bread with pizza sauce was amazing,...I could've eaten that as a main. The deep dish we all thought was slightly better than Gino's although both were very good, we didn't finish it all but it tasted decent the next morning too for breakfast. We will try out a few other deep dish spots but will definitely return here at some point!More
