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.

Excellent food. Service was rushed but it could be Covid, although they can manage against it. Otherwise, excellent pizza.

There is tension due this covid period and this is reflected on the staff, mainly in the tables coordinator. Hopefully gets better when the situation is solved

Best thin crust Italian style pizza! You can’t go wrong with any one of them. Their octopus is always amazing as well. Desert wise the tiramisu with an espresso is to die for.

Don’t go out of your way for this place. The hostesses were not particularly nice. Didn’t seemed to be trained on the appropriate way to present the COVID time restrictions to a table (the restaurant never had all seats full) and we were told we only had 60 minutes to stay. The hostesses didn’t acknowledge us at all when we left even though one held the door. No “thanks for your business” or “have a good evening.” The beet salad and focaccia were very good. The main even (pizza) wasn’t anything to be desired. Crust was good but pizza toppings were mediocre at best. The Margarita pizza tasted like tomato soup with no seasoning. Service was OK. Just not worth another stop..

Everything was great except you are forced to wait outside if you are waiting for your table. Wouldn’t have been a big deal but we did have a reservation and still had to wait 20 min. Someone from our group pointed this out and the hostess responded “well your party was late” (by 8 minutes). Just didn’t needed the attitude we were nothing but nice when asking about the wait.

The food was fantastic, but the service and first impression was not great. When I walked up to check in, the hostess was very frazzled. I understand they were busy, but getting told to stand along the side of the building and not being able to check-in for 15+ minutes was not a great first impression. Once seated, our waitress was fine, nothing spectacular. The food was great and came out quickly.

The hostess was very rude and they took forever to not only take our order but get our food. It was pretty busy so I’ll give them that but overall not a good experience. The pizza was amazing but the service was very poor.

The food is fantastic! We ordered a few different pizzas and a salad. The dessert was great too. Our waitress was very knowledgeable but we got the sense that they were trying to rush us up as we finished our meal. Will be back!

We went to celebrate our engagement. We were actually supposed to be in Italy at the time but due to COVID-19 our travel plans were canceled. They were so sweet and the food was amazing! They gave us a complimentary dessert to help us celebrate. We will definitely be back!

Forno Rosso is my favorite West Loop dinner spot when I want something casual but still high quality food and great ambiance. Their flavors are fresh and delicious, and I always love the music they play.

This was our first time eating at Forno Rosso after having it recommended by several people and it did not disappoint. The crust is what I picture a true pizza from Italy to taste like. I can't compare it to any other pizza in the city, it was delicious and just as good re-heated the following day. I highly recommend the mushroom truffle pizza with sausage. Also order the Aperol Spritz - it's not on the menu but will complete your trip to Italy.

We went to this West Loop Venue for the Woodfire Oven Pizza experience. It did not disappoint. The award winning pizza was worthy of its $24 tag. The beet salad was delicious. Get in before the 7 pm rush or you won’t wanna wait for a table.

I heard that gluten free crust was award winning and it did not disappoint. We had a group of 8 with the majority of us being vegan. Everyone enjoyed their food and our server Terasita was amazing.
