The meatballs are fantastic. The pizza crust is a perfect combination of crisp on the bottom and pillowy inside. Great topping options. Will DEFINITELY go back!

Pizza was decent! Great atmosphere. Overpriced menu.. ordered the Caprese salad and the tomatoes were hard. Asked the server for our pizza not be cooked well done and gave us some excuse why the edges of the crust have to be burnt. Probably will not be going back

Wanted to try this place and sorry to say it was disappointing - the family salad consisted of iceberg lettuce with a few olives/garbanzos and red onion - the pizza had a nice thin crust as expected but several pieces were really burnt and the “margherita” pizza consisted of crust /sauce / some melted mozzarella with a small sprig of basil in the middle - not good. And the small glass of Pinot Grigio - fair - was $12.50!! Nice waitress tho.....

We chose this place based on availability in the area. We were seated right away, although there was some confusion between the hostess and wait staff. Didn’t wait long for drinks, but had to ask for our food order to be taken after waiting and watching our waiter walk by us multiple times. My daughters pizza arrived and my sandwich did not, it was long enough that I think it was forgotten on original order. Service aside, the food was not good. My oven roasted chicken sandwich had zero flavor and I ate less than a quarter of it before switching to my daughters pizza. Pretty standard, nothing fancy. The kicker for me though was bringing the check while dishes were clearly ready to be picked up (I.e. wadded napkins on top). The dishes still there when credit card returned leaving no room to sign. Poor service, below average food, not a place I’ll return to.

The service and the food were excellent. However, there were a lot of fruit flies flying around. Hopefully, they will take care of that soon!

Really bad pizza and very expensive. Not quite sure why anyone would come here. Three medium size pizzas with no meat in only one soda cost $91

Food was just ok. Pizza was pretty dry and salad didn't taste very fresh. The burrata on the salad was very cold which pretty much ruins the whole experience of eating a burrata, which is supposed to be creamy and room temp. Margarita pizza had little flavor or tomatoes. Service was good- they had a lot of people working there. It was a Saturday night and wasn't very packed. I hope they can up their game. I know they are part of a well respected chain so perhaps it was just an off night.

Loved our pizza! It was perfect! The chicken wings were a little too crispy but the carmelized onions paired well with it. Food came out fairly quickly.

Wings with onions on top were as good as our waitress suggested. And the meatballs were delicate, flavorful and yet light in texture. We enjoyed our pizzas and drinks too. Will definitely go back again.

Great service, very attentive, polite and offered great dining suggestions. Disappointed that the happy hour specials were only in the bar, at the bar or at a high top table.
Pizza was awesome, crust done to perfection! We will return!

Music too loud; had some pesky flies constantly nose-diving our food (could be easily eliminated). Other than that, almost as nice as the Anthony's in Florida.

Went there knowing the concept and have had wood burning oven and coal fired all over the country.

Chicago area is becoming ground zero for this type of pizza. Many places offer Wood Burning but only a few do coal.

Coal is different, it is well done pizza. My preferred style. Crispy, with that burnt look without being burnt.

Very underrated and a must have is the Wings. Done in the coal oven and covered in caramelized onions.

We ordered 2 small pizza for variety. The Margherita and the Philly Cheesesteak.

There are 2 versions of the famous Margherita. 1 with fresh sliced tomatoes and basil, no sauce and a Square Margherita with Sauce and Square.

We had the fresh tomato. It was very d=good and the philly was also excellent.

Next time we will try the other Margherita and another one. And will try the meatballs as an appetizer.

Worth it, this is the second location and a third is opening soon.

you need to try it. Right off the expressway and if your far south there's one in Palos and coming soon to Kildeer.

Loved it! Everything was great from the time we walked in until we left. The staff was super friendly and professional! For a restaurant that just opened it was very impressive that everything ran as smooth as it did....and the pizza was great! I frequent their South Florida restaurants, so I was waiting for this to open! Great job! Will definitely be back!

Food was incredible. We tried seven different dishes and enjoyed each one of them. The restaurant generously accommodated our specialty dining request. We tried seven different dishes and enjoyed each one of them. The restaurant generously accommodated our specialty dining requests. The only drawback was that we felt rushed by the Bussers and servers the entire time. They were trying to clear plates before we had finished eating and asking for orders before we had even sat down and looked at the menu. Other than that, it was a great experience and we would go back.
