Pizzeria
Bringing traditional Vera Pizza Napoletana to the modern West Loop.

Please note we do not take reservations for our entire restaurant leaving room for walk-ins.

For Our Gluten Free Diners we highly recommend reserving gluten free dough. In our effort to serve the best and safest quality product our gluten free is available in limited supply, we strive to always have it available sometimes demand is greater and we do run out.

Vera Pizza Napoletana is made with a soft dough and takes about one minute to cook in a Wood-Burning oven. Because of this Pizza Napoletana has several distinctive characteristics. Pizza in Napoli is soft and foldable and can be considered “wet” by American standards. For this reason, people in Napoli generally eat their pizza with a knife and fork. Blackened char spots on the pizza crust is a tell–tale sign of Pizza Napoletana that has been cooked in a blistering hot, wood-burning oven. Each Pizza is an individual work of art.

I had a large party of 12 on a Saturday Night at 7:00 pm - Forno Rosso wowed us all - We were seated within five (5) minutes of our reservation time and the service and food was fantastic. They made it a great evening.

Pizza was probably as close as you could get to the ones in Italy. Maybe it’s all the fresh and imported ingredients. Would definitely go again in the future.

The pizza is great, one of the few places selling authentic pizza in Chicago. Nice ingredients and good flavours. It’s a bit pricey but worth it and the pizzas are pretty large. The food is served very quickly. The decoration and ambience is lovely other than three large TVs on the wall playing sports or cooking programmes , really ruined what would have been a romantic, classy, peaceful atmosphere otherwise.

This is our favorite restaurant in the city. The service and food cannot be beat. I am obsessed with the pistachio pizza and they have the best gluten free crust in the city. The staff makes you feel at home and we always have the best evening.

Fantastic as always. Been here several times, and everything is always top-notch.
I'm not gluten-free, but my wife is, and they have the best gluten-free pizza crust around.

Our food and drinks were taken away when we were still working on them. Started wiping our tables down when we were still eating. The rushing by the servers was just too much and frankly unacceptable.

Went for our anniversary. Absolutely amazing pizza. If your looking for something different than deep dish this is the spot. The icing on the cake was the spicy olive oil they give you. Could literally dip every pizza in it before every bite. A must try!

We dined at Forno Rosso while we were in Chicago this weekend. Everything was great. We were greeted as soon as we arrived and were seated immediately ever though we were early for our reservations. The server was friendly and helpful, describing the way the pizzas are made and what to expect. We had an appetizer that was delicious (warm Burrata) as were the pizzas. The GM came to our table to make sure everything was perfect and even sent over a special dessert at the end of our meal. We will definitely go back next time were in Chicago.

Best gluten free pizza I have ever had. Make sure you request the gluten free crust in advance, as they run out.

Food was amazing! There was a minor error with my order, the owner quickly came by and apologized (multiple times), asked me if I wanted something else and he would comp the pizza due to a mistake. I was still hungry so I asked them to remake the pizza. That is what I call great customer service it’s the small things that most places don’t get right. He went above and beyond

As we were leaving he apologized again, totally unnecessary but he did because he wants customers leaving happy, which I did and am a repeat customer.

Had an 8 PM reservation. We were seated promptly, but did not receive acknowledgement or water on the table until 8:30. The inside of the restaurant was uncomfortably warm. Servers apologized the few times they came over, but were still inattentive. The food was fantastic, but not worth the poor service and atmosphere.
