Description: Naperville area’s award-winning spot for flavorfully-inspired thin-crust pizzas, made from scratch using only the freshest ingredients. Chicago is a pizza town, and a trip to the Amalfi Coast of Italy inspired the owners to bring fresh and affordable dining, mixed with the warm hospitality of family, back to the Midwest’s pizza capital. In addition to the best pizza around, Pizzeria Bombola Burgers & Brews features gourmet burgers with a variety of toppings. We are the first restaurant in the western suburbs to offer the unbelievably juicy “melt in your mouth” Pat La Frieda burger, featured on The Food Network’s Meat Men. Innovative appetizers, sandwiches, pastas, hearty entrée salads and vegetarian and gluten-free options round out a menu filled with surprising twists and loaded with fresh flavours. Mix it up at the bar, where you’ll find a vibrant atmosphere perfect for a girls’ night, catching the big game or an after-work happy hour. Relax as the friendliest bartenders in the ‘burbs serve up craft beers, cocktails and wines by the glass, bottle or quartino. Bombola offers comfortable outdoor dining, catering, plus intimate and inviting private event space. For our friends on the go, Pizzeria Bombola Burgers & Brews is the ONLY place to get beer and wine with your take-out order! Staying in tonight? Bombola delivers fresh, fast and delicious straight to your door.

“OUR PLACE!”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

We love Bombola. Whenever we need dinner close by our family loves to go there. They did a great job on the décor. It is comfortable yet has the conveniences of tvs for the sports fans in my family. This restaurant pleases my whole family of 5 which is not easy to do! The Rosario is our favorite pizza with sausage garlic and asiago cheese. Also the pizza dough covered meatballs are their signature item and worth the indulgence. My favorite is their spinach salad with goat cheese, bacon, dried cranberries and walnuts with a pomegranate vinegarette. Their hangar steak sandwich is off the hoot. Burgers are great and my 11 year old loves the BLTT. (Bacon lettuce turkey tomato sand). We go here all the time with friends and my dad. So good and comfortable truly our favorite local restaurant.

“Great place to eat!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

We have been here twice recently. Once was on Christmas Eve and then tonight (even though it is -20 here). Both times the food was excellent. There was 8 of us and everyone was happy, the chicken sandwich, the caprese, the kids food everything was great. We had the Bombola meatballs as an appetizer they were very good. The waitresses were very knowledgeable, friendly
And we're very good servers. The price was perfect, they have 1/2 price appetizers from 4 to 6 every night, the first time we were there it was $5.00 chicken sandwiches, the next time it was $5.00 hamburgers. The portions were very hearty. What a nice family restaurant (they have a bar too, but it is nicely separated from the restaurant). The kids were welcome and treated very nicely as all of us were. I highly recommend this place for a nice family dinner.

“Great food...poor service”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

I thought the food was very good and they had a great variety. We went on a Monday which is when they do a coin flip after your meal to see if your appetizer is free, and the coin flip was in our favor so it was a nice treat. Also have a wide variety of beer and wine which is nice.

My only complaint is there service...the waitrons didn't seem very willing to answe our questions and they didn't visit our table often to refill drinks when needed.

In conclusion, I would still go here and they have great specials throughout the week!

“Great Food but Veg Options??”
Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

We went there wed night as it was galf price pizza. The buffalo chicken pizza was great. great tip - always order without bacon as it will cut down too much fat. Nachos were avg. Caprese sandwich was fresh and so was desert. The best part is bar area is separated from family seating. it is perfect if you are going out with kids. hit the joint if you are bored with te chain restaurants. our server was great as well

“Wish there was a 3 and a half star rating.”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Bombola is better than average, but I can't quite go to very good either. Their pizza was thin crust, almost brick oven style. It was very good - better than I expected. The atmosphere is ok. My friends and I were shoo'd out at about 9:45pm because it wasn't very crowded - not good for a pizza place/bar.
