“Great italian food by the river!!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Great place to have a chicago style pizza and italian food. Also has a wonderful selection of wine. This is away from the maddening tourist crowd of the magnificent mile.

“Deep Dish Pizza”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

On a cold and windy Chicago evening, we opted not to leave the Club Quarters and dined here out of convenience. The deep dish pizza did not disappoint. It seemed to attract a fairly lively local crowd who were familiar with the menu and ordered wisely. My husband opted for a regular sized deep dish pizza over the suggested personal size and left most of it on the table. Food was good and a decent value. Great for hotel guests and families.

“Nice Place for a Pleasant Lunch”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

We had a very pleasant lunch at BB. The food is typical Italian, well prepared and the service was fine. The decor is not unpleasant, but best described as dated Italian. While fine for lunch, we would not seek it out for dinner.

“Chicago Deep Dish Pizza”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

I've tried sone other Chicago places for Deep Dish on previous visits and been underwhelmed - either by ridiculously high prices, or disappointing too-heavy-on-the-crust pizza.
The pizza we had at Bella Bacino's struck a near perfect balance.
The place was almost full and we waited in the bar, then decided to order and eat there to save time which was fine and we were not in any way hurried on.
The bartender was great, friendly and knowledge, and suggested some local beers that were far better than expected.
But the highlight was the pizza. The set combinations weren't very appealing to these Aussies, so we ordered cheese and added 3 of our own ingredients to each (which worked out to be the same price). They came deliciously stuffed, packed with flavour, and perfectly balanced combinations.
We order three "bambinos" to share between two of us which was slightly too much, but left us both extremely full and delighted with the variety. And the price was outstanding - under $30 for three shared pizzas, two beers and a soft drink.
Highly recommend!
