Thin cheese pizza was delicious along with the fried pickles, fries and pretzel bites. Everything was filling, quickly prepared and yummy.

During these times, this was the perfect time out of the house. Staff was attentive and food delicious - as usual! Room enough to abide by social distancing. Please support them!

Candlelite never disappoints!! This neighborhood gem is a tradition in West Ridge. Great food and drinks, pleasant staff that really make you really feel like you belong. Pizza is amazing, burgers are da bomb but the chocolate cookie skillet dessert is a MUST HAVE.

I'm hoping this review will help draw people out of their homes back to Candlelite. They are ready with hand sanitizer and are wearing masks and the tables are set apart perfectly for social distancing. Help keep this Evanston/Chicago fan favorite alive and make your reservation. The pizza is still outstanding and they are running sports reruns on the TVs so it's almost like the world is normal. :)
