My wife and I, with a friend, ate at Union Pizzeria before the recent Trevor Hall convert at Space. A local shop owner had recommended it to my wife. My wife needs to eat gluten-free, so we were quite pleased that they do gluten-free pizza....More

I don't like to go to this restaurant, because the experience is always chaotic. So I go only when friends really want to go, but I'll continue discouraging that choice. They don't take reservations and it seems impossible to avoid the chaos up front. The...More

We were seated as it was not very crowd on a Sunday night. Got menu and water as we sat down. Ordered directly after. Got a nice salad, bottle of wine, and pizza. Everything was tasty and we enjoyed our late dinner.

Large warehouse-like room, industrial chic which big pizza furnaces, piles of logs and lots of people rushing around. Seemed to me to be one of the busiest restaurants in Evanston from early evening. Lots of family groups and friends having dinner; quite a nice local-community...More

Good food, nice/friendly service. They were very accommodating on pacing food we had ordered so we could linger over dinner while waiting for the show. Cauliflower and Brussels sprouts sides were good as appetizers. Salmon was excellent. Nice that they put bacon on side to...More

Great Pizzas and other food items, service generally good. A regular spot for food and meeting friends. Some of the customers can get a bit territorial around the bar. The wine list could be improved, it's ok but not great. Usually there is a decent...More
