Two slices of Real NY style thin crust and a drink for $8, not bad. Service was friendly and quick. Pizza was great, good crust and flavor, had a plain slice and sausage. Will be back.

In an area LOADED with wonderful pizza places, Giuseppe's stands out. We have a couple of excellent choices in the rotation, but very often Giuseppe's gets visited out of turn. Great pizza and fair prices.

Our soccer team traveled to this area for a tournament. We were looking for a spot to have dinner that could accommodate 50 people and watch the World Cup game. Everywhere we called they turned us down - too many people. Guesseppe was wonderful! He said come on in and was so great. He took each families order the day... More

I had the "thin crust" pizza one time. Although the cheese, sauce and toppings were good, I found the crust to be thick and tough to chew. I think it takes away from the overall experience. If I'm going to have a thin crust pizza, I don't want to be overpowered by the bread. I think it's worth a try.

They sell pizza by the (huge) slice for lunch, and it is some of the best pizza in the Chicagoland area! Authentic crusts, and fantastic ingredients. The two-slice lunch deal (includes fountain drink) is a bargain!

As an East Coast transplant, I am ALWAYS on the lookout for NY style pizza. Hand tossed, FLOUR on the bottom (not cornmeal), a good sauce. That's what I found here - arguably the best NY pizza in the area. Kudos for the varied kids menu, too. I will be back!

Decent pizza, but nothing special. Nice spicy Italian sausage, but sauce is -- meh. Not much cheese. An extremely chewy crust that needed salt and really added nothing to the dish. Not memorable, not a reason to go back.

One of the daily Giuseppe specials is two slices of pizza and a drink for $7.00. This gives you a chance to sample more than one pizza creation from the case with three (yes, count 'em, three) shelves of tempting pizzas, thin or pan. The white and margherita gourmet are especially good. There's also a slice and salad special, and... More
