A word from Connie's Pizza in Gold Coast
Much has happened since our dad, Jim Stolfe, traded his prized 1962 Oldsmobile Starfire to open the first Connie’s in a small storefront on the south side of Chicago.


We no longer play records, we download tunes. We chat on-line, not over the neighbors fence.


The Connie’s family has undergone changes as well! We have opened new restaurants and expanded into frozen foods nationwide.


There are some things, however, that have not changed. We are still family-owned. We are still obsessed with quality and service. And Dad still has the final word! We hope you will all be customers for 50 more years!

    While the restaurant has a slightly corporate feel, the staff couldn't be nicer and seemed genuinely invested in our experience. The deep dish pizza is delicious and the pastas we tried were good, too (the meatballs tasted home made). Also the fact that they take reservations is a huge advantage over all the other Chicago pizza houses - that made them a lifesaver for our tired family! Definitely recommended.

    Have know about Connie's pizza for years (although I live in Texas) because I am a DieHard Cubs Fan & see Connie's add in the Vineline magazine for years! Knew we would have to give it a try! Had a piece of pizza at the Taste of Chicago this week and knew even more than I would have to make the walk to have an entire pizza there! Simply OUTSTANDING! Best in Chicago!

    Connie's Pizza has pretty standard offerings, however our fabulous server, Shelby, made us feel like we were in a 5-Star Restaurant. She handled our rambunctious group flawlessly, and all food came out timely. The BBQ Chicken Pizza was a hit - we will be back.

    Connies isn't just for pizza. We go there for burgers, Italian beef, etc as well. I love the firewood pizza!

    The food at Connie's for the last 50 years has always been very fresh with good quality. I have been dining at Connie's for the last 50 years and have celebrated many birthdays and special occasions here. Wish they would add Chicken Limone and an eggplant sandwich. My last dining experience with 8 people was very nice and everyone had a good time.

    We're so glad to have Connie's in the neighborhood! Great selection of pizzas, with great crusts. "Regular" food is excellent as well. And we can talk with friends!

    Much more quiet and less crowded than the other Connie's I've been to. The food is he same high quality and the service is more personal. The bar is a beautiful classic. It's worth finding this one even though it is inside a large building and somewhat hidden. The view from the dining room out to the courtyard adds to the ambiance.

    This restaurant is new so it was a bit quiet, but we thought the pizza was comparable to the big touristy place down the street which was packed with people. If you want a nice atmosphere and very good pizza without the wait, this is a great place to go. Management seemed very eager to please.

    Welcome to The Gold Coast! After many years of having to travel all the way to Archer Ave on the southside, for awesome Chicago-style pizza, I am THRILLED to have a Connie's closer to home. The food was awesome, service great and location perfect. Will certainly be back!
