Not on the main drag so be sure to put their address in your GPS! Or stop at Casey's and ask directions like we did.
Small family place - the owner was there and baking pizzas. Appeared to be many regulars.
Service was excellent - the waitresses seemed to handle each other tables when you needed drink refills, delivering the food, etc. to the point you didn't feel you really had a specific waitress - but it worked very well and service was prompt.
I'm not a pan pizza fan but I liked this pizza - crust bottom was still crunchy even though it was a deep dish pizza. We paid about $25 (including drinks) for a large Mr. Gilberti's specialty - italian sausage, candian bacon, mushrooms, marinated peppers, black olives, and jalapenos (if asked for). Toppings were covered with a thick tomato sauce to the point they were really no longer visible. We had enough left over for supper for my wife and I on Sunday evening.
I'll leave to others whether it was a true Chicago pizza or not.
Made using homemade crust - took about 20 minutes but that was said right on the menu so we knew that before we ordered. Was definitely worth the wait. If that's not acceptable, you might want to call your order ahead so it will be ready when you get there.
Homey atmosphere - lots of pictures of celebrity customers on the walls. Even some of the menu items were favorites of the stars such as the Andy Williams salad.
I'm not absolutely sure but I don't believe they served beer.
Would go back.
