“the best Chicago Deep Dish Pizza”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

the pizza and crust was flavorful. we got the traditional pizza and it was oozing with flavor. the crust has this buttery garlic flavor which adds taste to their pizza. don't forget to order their calamari! you gotta love the freshness of their deep in Calamari. this is a pizza heaven for all the foodie like me.

“Don't go for their claimed Chicago deep dish”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Their veggie deep dish is not Chicago's best, it's even unacceptable for me. Food is less than average. Nice atmosphere though.

“Amazing Pizza”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is by far the best chicago deep dish in town. The crust is what makes the difference for me, so good. Will always come here when I am in town.

“The best pizza in chicago”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Best deep dish pizza in Chicago. Severals others are very good, but they have the best crust. Thin is OK, but would select other locations. Decent salads too.
