Amazing real Italian pizza. It really is coal fired.. Thin and crispy with crunchy edges and fresh toppings. Always good. Front of house is casual and somewhat small. Good for families.

We started going there a few years ago when we were looking to find a good pizza place to eat at before Blackhawks games. We read the great YELP reviews and decided to give it a try. Sinc then, it has definitely become my favorite pizza place and our kids favorite restaurant overall! The service is always great as well!

If you like neapolitan-style pizza, give Coal Fire a try!

Best Neapolitan pizza in the city. Salad, 2 beers, and a pizza...25 bucks. Everything is fantastic.

I cannot believe that Coal Fire hasn't been reviewed since 2008 - this place has only gotten better in the last 3 years. It is our go-to place for all special events. We love the atmosphere and the food is even better. Very simple menu, but that what is so great. They work hard to provide the freshest and best flavors. Super thin crust baked in a single wood fired grill. YUM! Service is quick and the staff is wonderful. They service beer and wine now and have even started with some desserts. I only wish there was more that one location around Chicago.
