“Best pizza I have ever tasted.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

This restaurant is the starting point of the Chicago Pizza Tour. The title says it all. Take the tour or just have a meal. For me, all pizza will forever be compared to Pizano's.

“Great Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

My family and I loved the deep dish pizza. The homemade crust and sauce are delicious. It's a nice, small pizza diner atmosphere. The service was good.

“Decent Spot for Lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

We decided to stop in Pizanos after a long morning touring Chicago. When we got there, there were plenty of empty tables, but they still made us wait a long time to get seated. Another group came in and was seated before us.
Aside from their poor initial service, our server was attentive. We were delighted by their food. We ordered some wings(good), Portabello mushrooms(delicious!!), and their deep dish Rudy Special (ok!). The pizza crust was crunchy but a little on the hard side, but the cheese was plentiful!

“Best Fettuccini Alfredo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

We originally came here after a friend had Hot Mama's Pasta and said it was great. We ordered that along with the several other dishes, and we were not disappointed. In particular, I want to point out that the fettuccini alfredo was the best I've ever had (which is what I typically order at Italian restaurants). The food was great, as was the service! I sometimes lay awake at night, staring at my ceiling, thinking about that fettuccini alfredo.

“Reasonably priced and excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

This is the third time we've eaten at Pizano's and the quality of the food keeps us coming back. This trip we had pasta (Alfredo & Tortellini) and bruschetta. Serving sizes for everything were quite generous and the food was amazing as normal! If you're in the area this is a great place for lunch or dinner!
