    Pizza is amazing. Just expect to wait an hour before making your order. Fortunately, Michigan Ave has a lot of shopping and the Museum of Contemporary Art is right there.

    As with the other Chi locations - best pizza for miles. Go in for a late lunch to avoid a long wait! For dinner put in your pizza order while you wait to cut down waiting time once you're seated. :)

    The stuffed Chicago deep dish pizza is absolutely amazing! The garlic cheese bread is wonderful as well! Had to wait about an hour, but it was completely worth it!

    There's pizza & then there's Chicago style stuffed pizza. Definitely get a stuffed pie, whether you're all veggies or all meat, stuffed pizza tastes like heaven if clouds were made out of cheese!

    Absolutely wonderful deep dish pizza. I asked many locals where was the best food. This name came up multiple times. I'm so glad I listened. I had the deep dish cheese and meatball. Was amazing!!!!!

    These monstrous pies are loaded with cheese & sauce, and specialty creations include the Chicago Classic (pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers & onions), Tropic Delight (Canadian bacon and pineapple). Read more

    Awesome rendition of deep dish. I like how they let the pizza cool a bit before serving so you aren't burning your mouth and losing all of the cheese out of the sides.

    Chicago deep dish at its finest! Everywhere else are knock offs! Do yourself the favor and check it out, even if the line is long, it's worth it! 🍕

    Great stuffed Pizza, be sure to be hungry when you go there coz it's huge. A small for 2 is good enough! Staff is friendly and efficient

    You must try Giordano's when you come to Chicago . Their cheese deep dish pizza is a must 😍 no one can do it better. It takes 45 minutes to be ready.

    Definitely worth the wait. We had a small deep dish with pepperoni topping. I would probably skip pepperoni the next time and just go for the plain pizza. Small was more than enough for 3 of us.

    One of the most delicious pizza I've tried. Portions are huge, I was satisfied with two slices. A required visit if you are at Chicago.

    The Deep Dish is Magic! Its the best pizza that Ive ever had in Life. We also had chicken wings, Chick Parm, & cake.The wings were ok but the Parm was BURNT:( and the cake wasnt great.

    Pizzas take approx 45 mins to bake so it's a good idea to get here early and place your order (they let you do that before you're seated). No reservations, sadly but worth it, every single time!

    Stuffed pizza is amazing. The longest lines are on Saturday nights but if you head in, put your name down, and preorder you can walk around outside because they call you when your table is ready.

    The pizza is AMAZING. Expensive but worth it for real Chicago pizza. TONS of cheese though so if you're lactose intolerant it's prob not for you.

    Can't say enough good stuff about this place! It was awesome. They are always pack apparently so be sure you have plenty of time, but it is absolutely worth the wait!

    Deep dish was definitely delicious! It does take an hour for the pizza to come out so definitely pre-order and then have fun chatting with friends!

    Dear Canadians. When you convert this pizza into Canadian. A small will feed 4-6 people. Sadly I only managed one slice and I was hungry. Still amazing though. Great experience.

    Old Bay wings are to die for. Single size deep dish pizza filled me up in bliss with the finest Chicago style. Sidewalk table is pleasant in good weather.

    2 normal sized people can easily share an individual 4 smaller sized pieces of pizza. Not on the menu, but ask! You get the great taste with a reasonable portion and price.

    For a deep dish stuffed pizza, waiting time is at least one hour (they are made to order). We had the spinach one and it was delicious, just don't come in starving, you may pass out while you wait.

    The deep dish was good. The small fed 3 easily but we're not really into big portions. It does take a while to get ready, but the starters keep you occupied :)

    A small can feed 3. Get half n' half so you can try two pies! The BBQ chicken was PHENOMENAL...but I also recommend the super veggie - for a more traditional pizza vibe.

    The bruschetta is actually really good. FYI - you get 4 (big) portions, so it's a great share plate too.

    Super filling and a long wait, but order an appetizer while you wait like the calamari with fried banana peppers

    Chicago Stuffed pizza is different from Chicago deep dish pizza because it has a top layer of crust as well.

    Cheese deep dish is always great. Try out a deep dish with italian beef, green peppers, and onions. Get a side of Cesar salad just for the croutons. So tasty.

    Giordano's is a chain, and I don't care. I dream of their stuffed pizza. Get the "Special". It's filled with sausage, mushrooms, green peppers, and onions. Anything more would be overkill.

    Pizza is very good but longgg wait nearly an hour. So be prepared to make it an event. This location has a bit of outdoor seating.

    Server said family size Caesar Salad was quite large. 3 of us downed it pretty good so I would say it feeds 4 people max. Don't fill up on the bread.

    Work here for a while and you'll hate the food. But still the food is good. Wings, chicken parm, salads, fries, and pizza are all on point.

    I liked them before their big renovation but, cannot get any better chicago style pizza. So I will still come. For that pizza lover enthusiast I feel this is a good place to stop. Love deep dish pizza

    If you want real, authentic Chicago Deep Dish and amazing garlic knots, you gotta hit this place. I also love the salads and the marinara sauce. Read more

    After you put your name on the list pre-order your pizza. If you order the stuffed pizza it can coke while you wait. Good deep dish pizza takes a long time to cook.

    I was told to come here to get the best Chicago Style pizza and while the pizza was really good (The small one is good for 2 or 3 people), the service was bad, it felt like that they hated to be there
