My two teenage sons and I went just after we arrived in Chicago, looking to experience deep dish pizza. It was a bit late and the very friendly waiter recommended thin crust pizza because it would be ready faster- and he said he liked it better! So we tried it and it was fabulous! Great atmosphere too.

I was there in a group during a weekday lunch hour. We were concerned due to the time of day; however, we were seated immediately. The following hour was easily one of the most enjoyable we spent in Chicago. Every staff member who handled our group was inviting, helpful, and extremely hospitable. In particular, Chris treated us like we were... More

Went to Chicago for the first time and did our own pizza tour to try and see what place was our favorite. We went to Pizano's on a food tour. It was the best pizza we had on the entire trip. Would definitely recommend this place! We look forward to ordering it and having it shipped to Texas to share... More

Delicious deep dish pizza! Couldn't ask for better service. We were able to sit outside on a beautiful spring evening. Our server was very attentive and even comped my husband a miss poured beer. Highly recommend.

We stumbled upon this place while waiting for out hotel room to be ready. We were seated right away and everyone was very friendly. They have a ton of fun pictures on the wall filled with history. The pizza took a bit longer but they tell you that right away-- worth the wait. I heard other people being seated and... More

Just had our first experience of deep dish pizza at Pizano's - delicious food but the best part of the experience was the service! Our server Daisy was so lovely and so personable. The staff is excellent at this place, and we couldn't help but notice how close the staff was and how they supported one another. Sophia stands out... More

My husband and I ate there twice when we were in Chicago for a conference. The first night we had pizza. He had the deep dish and I had the thin crust gluten free. He is from the area, born and raised, and was happy as a clam to be eating real deep dish pizza again. I am from NY... More

Great butter crust deep dish and thin. Sat at the bar with the hubby and a couple drinks (they are generous with their pouring.) They seem to have a lot of regulars. They have a dining area as well that would be good for family or groups. It's off the beaten path but definitely a great spot for Chicago style... More
