La Crosta Woodfire Pizzeria Italiana
We were just in Italy this summer and this is the most authentic Italian pizza we have had since we returned.
The best authentic Italian thin-crust pizza in Chicago. The ingredients are fresh and the service is outstanding. Dino, the owner, was extremely hospitable. He even went out of his way to accommodate my nut allergy.
You get what you pay for. LaCrosta makes thin crust like you get in Italy. They use the finest ingredients and cook in a wood fired oven. It may be more expensive than most pizza places but you can taste the difference. The owner Dino is there about 100 hours per week and is always friendly and makes sure your happy. Great place! Go for sure
One of the best pizza places in Chicago. Great ingredients (mozzarella, prosciutto, tomatoes,..) and a great pizzaiolo make their pizzas delicious
Great date spot! Really good thin crust pizza and really helpful staff. Will definitely be coming back!
Delicious goat cheese appetizer, very good pizza and service. A little pricey. We sat near the kitchen and could occasionally feel chilly breeze and smell cigarette smoke from an open back door presumably. Great location near parking and Victory Garden Theater
Great food. Didn’t use our reservation, we were able to sit down as soon as we walked in. Enjoyed glass of Chianti with a caprese salad, bruschetta and a prosciutto and arugula pizza. Definitely recommend!
Pizza was great but very limited menu including they didn’t even have unsweetened ice tea.
They seemed to be short servers too when I was there. But the
Great menu with unique pizza options. Highly recommend the burratta truffle pizza bianco!
Really enjoyed our visit to La Crosta! A nice outing for a night that you want to treat yourself but not break the bank. The pizza is very enjoyable. Nothing way out of the ordinary, but very enjoyable none the less! Definitely a lighter option that the deep dish in Chicago
Best pizza in Chicago town! Try the calla tella and the tiramisu.
Thoroughly enjoyed our evening at La Crosta. Authentic Italian pizza dough, cooked thin and crispy in a wood fire oven and dressed with your choices of deliciously fresh and flavorful topping. The service was stellar as well.
Amazing food and serve! Great restaurant in the Lincoln Park area.
Nice place good food nothing too amazing. I went there with a friend to have a relaxing evening and it was perfect for that. Could be a good place to go on a first date because it is not too casual not too fancy.
Delicious delicious DELICIOUS
Excellent appetizers and pizza. The ingredients are fresh and authentic. Being italian, I'm picky when going to an italian restaurant. This one does a great job
Amazing staff! The pizzas are fantastic
Amazing bruschetta - don't leave without trying. Traditional Italian wood-fired pizzas worth a visit.
We ordered a bottle of chardonnay and a pizza each (we took home most of the pizza). Pizza: Due Carne and the Fig, Goat Cheese & Prosciutto. Both were delicious! Our waiter was friendly and polite. Will definitely be back!
Great pizza and service. A neighborhood gem worth traveling to.
A little pricey, but the pizza was delicious!
Always a great experience!
If you are looking for the style of pizza you ate in Italy, this is the one to go to. Service was nice also.
Best pizza! Highly recommend it to everyone. And owner Dino is the BEST! Very accommodating to children also....
lovely, warm cosy neighborhood pizza - with the best food!
Terrific spot! We had fantastic service - server helped us order the perfect amount of food. And everything we ate was wonderful. Definitely recommend, especially if you have tickets to Greenhouse for a show. Easy walk.
La Crosta is my favorite pizzeria in Chicago!!! Quality ingredients, great service, authentic Italian pizzeria feel. Without a doubt the best pizza this side of the Atlantic! 😍
Great food and service.
Rare hidden gem. I got the inglaterra pizza which wasn’t even on the menu but the helpful serve suggested it to me. Delicious pizza, attentive service, cozy ambience, scrumptuous desert and no wait. Unbelievable that this place has flown under the radar for so long. Best in Lincoln Park. It needs to be nominated for a “Check Please” episode.
Best pizza ever!!!
The service is perfect, descreet and friendly!!
The pizza was awesome. Just a bit overpriced. Could have used a bit more attention to the table (ie, wanted another drink, but server came by when we were closer tti the end if the meal)
Came here with my sisters and we all really liked the food. We ordered the baked goat cheese, a ceaser salad, and a pizza and it was perfect to share between the 3 of us.
We has three of their meatless pizzas as my sister keeps kosher, Margarita, mushroom artichoke and four cheese. All were delicious and great for sharing. Look for half price wines on Wednesdays
Best pizza I have had so far...! I always order deliver, but this time I went to the restaurant. I loved it, I like the ambience, the staff is kind and the food was amazing!
Don't overlook the artichoke appetizer!
This is a find in a block with surprisingly few options. Perfect for pre- or post-Victory Gardens meal. 15% discount for theater-goers.
Great pizza and nice people
We went there before the theater and everything worked out perfectly. We told our server Ava we had theater tickets and our food came out promptly to give us plenty time to get to the theater. We ordered 4 woodfired pizzas for the 6 of us. We even had time to order desserts and they were delicious. If you are going to the Greenhouse theater it's only .2 miles away and I would definitely recommend it.
Come to La Croats wood fired pizza
You won’t be disappointed awesome appetizers, pizzas & tiramisu.
Wanted to be crazy and try something new that I hadn't had before and I wasn't huge on that. But I will go back and when I do, I will get something hot and spicy which is much more my style. Service was great, wine was great, ambiance was great!
