    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.

    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.

    No no no!!! Very rude staff. Pizza takes 45mins and is disgusting. The pasta I ordered - disaster! Very heavy thick sauce in which the pasta was swimming. Very disappointed! My dog can cook better!

    I'm not sure how to say this as words can't describe how bad the food was. Highly disappointed. The pasta was over done highly seasoned and very very salty. The salad was not fresh pizza was so bad!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    La deep dish pizza, de unas de las mejores pizzas que he probado. La pasta de tomate que le ponen es épica. Lo único que no me gustó es que la masa es muy dura. Me gustan las masas más blandas.
