    My favorite Chicago style pizza. Definitely some of the best sausage! This place always has a line so it's not a bad idea to get there early, put your name in and wait 45 mins or longer.

    Exceptional service- speedy & friendly (thanks, Joe). We got seated right away & our drinks & appetizer came out lightning quick! Food is great (try the deep dish pizza), atmosphere is nice. Loved it!

    Oprah was definitely onto something with Pizano's, best thin(ish) crust pizza I've ever eaten. What's more is that the ingredients are on point. There's a certain "crunch" to the pizza that's unique.

    This location may attract hoards of tourists like no other restaurant in the area, but that's because it really does serve the best pizza.

    Great late night spot near my stay at the Palmer House Hilton .Great atmosphere and service.Had the Rudy deep dish and it was excellent with a glass of chianti.

    The deep dish here is fantastic! Take it from a Chicago guy. Service is bar none---but you have to get past the host first! When you arrive, be sure to ask for the Chach. He'll blow you away!

    Two types of gluten-free pizza, gluten free pasta, and all of the best of the regular Italian favorites! Service is always A+ and portions are monsters! ❤️

    An easy walk from the Art Institute and Millennium Park, this place is full of sports memorabilia and an old-time Mom & Pop Italian restaurant vibe.

    The cheese deep dish is fantastic! Get the minestrone soup with the cheese melted on top as a starter. It's out of this world.

    Uncle Chach is the best! By far the nicest and most entertaining waiter I've ever had. He definitely makes the dining experience 100x better!

    Thin crust pizza was fantastic and nearly identical to Lou Malnati’s, which makes sense given a Malnati founded this place. Fettuccine, fried ravioli were good but house salad and thin crust shine.

    I got seated quickly.. The service was pretty quick. I had a pepperoni deep dish. It didn't look like a deep dish & the crust was very buttery & crispy. Overall I didn't like it that much.

    Marks thin crust. A tasty Margherita style pizza. Can run a little flat on taste at times, but a decent pie with tons of garlic! The crust is perfect!

    Had a great time with our server Paul. Food and service were all simple but done extremely well. Famous and delicious food at reasonable prices. I'll be back for sure.

    Everything is good except pizza itself- someone who knows what the real Italian Pizza is would never call their culinary arts "pizza".

    Had the veggie. It wasn't too great though. Prepare to wait it out for your pizza even if it's carry out (you can check out the Millennium park in the mean time) Cashier wasn't really friendly.

    Had pizza from Lou Malnalti's and it honestly did not compare to Pizano's. They also do not skimp on the alcohol. Definitely coming back here when I visit Chicago again.

    Thin crust pizza is very good. Service was exceptional. Our party of 10 was seated in 5 minutes with no reservations.

    Looking for deep dish flavor without the commitment to a deep dish pie? Pizano’s has that malnati-style butter crust as a thin crust pizza. YUM! Highly recommend!

    Loved the pastas here. Got the vodka one and gnocchi. So good! I was not impressed with the thin crust pizza. Kinda of bland IMO.

    Make sure you order the Ann Marie Special or Robert Special pastas; both of them are to die for!

    Thought the deep dish was extremely good. Warm atmosphere. Beer list was not good. Have heard the thin crust is where they excel the most.

    It's busy tonight but order ahead while you wait. Pizza takes awhile to make anyway so they'll get your order started.

    Pizanos pizza is by far the best Chicago style pizza in the city - it is a must stop for me every time I visit. Get the Rudy's special!

    Sausage and green pepper thin crust is great. Spinach&artichoke deep is heavy on spinach.

    Garlic bread was very delicious, pizza was disappointing. Half of the crust was soft, back half was hard as a rock.
