“Good pizza and beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

Il Vicino is a brew pub and wood-fired pizza place with other Italian specialities. It's always crowded because the food is great, the beer is also great, and the people are friendly. You order at the counter, get a number and a server brings your food. No real downside to this place except finding a table.

“Good quick lunch downtown.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2012

The lunch special is a small salad, pizza, & a drink for $10. Can't be beat if you want a quick lunch downtown. The place can be quite busy at lunch but the service is quick. We grab a quick lunch here when our office schedule permits...

Great restaurant in downtown Colorado Springs. We love to go there on our movie nights. The pizzas are especially good.

“Great Pizza.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2012

Il Vicino makes wood-fired pizza's and they are great. They also have a couple of in-house brews that are very good. I'm there at least every couple of months.

“not bad for a chain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2012

Long line on a Friday night, order and pray for a table. All they have is individual pizzas, a couple of salads and only 2 pastas, Lasagna and Alfredo. Very limited menu but it is a pizza joint. Impressively fast: Despite the long line, the ordering process was quick and yes we did find a place to sit after a short wait. From the moment you step in there is someone to greet you and help you with your selections, they delivered our food within minutes and checked on us several times throughout the meal. This will satisfy your pizza craving (if you like thin crust). I had the Lasagna and the only thing it was missing was sauce, I need more sauce, it was dry but good. Drown it in sauce and you hit a home run. The focaccia bread is the best I have had in a long time..... It is really hard for me to give this place more than 3 stars when you have such a limited menu, stand in line ordering, take a number and wait for a table and then get better than average fast food pizza. Great Location, Friendly service, Good Food, Very crowded and loud, not bad for a chain. I would go back.
