Pizzeria
Welcome to La Crosta Woodfire Pizzeria Italiana. Here we share our vision of authentic Italian traditional pizza, which dates back to the Greco-Roman period and starts with fresh, high quality ingredients. Many of them are flown in from Italy, including our tomatoes, flour and burrata cheese. Our dough is handmade daily. In fact, La Crosta in Italian means “the crust” and we believe our fluffy crust is the best in the business. In all, I’ve created a comfortable restaurant for you and your friends to spend time together and create new memories.

Cute little place with good pizza. The service improved after a fairly long wait for our order to be taken.

Delicious pizza! Dino, the owner, is wonderful and very attentive, and really wants you to enjoy every detail of your meal. Eat the burrata. All of it. Our server was charming and the mood in the restaurant is cozy and warm. This place is a true gem!

Our server was super sweet and extremely fast to get us things. Said she’d been working there about two month. Burrata prosciutto appetizer was yummy. Didn’t love the Carpaccio with a sausage instead of raw beef- was fine but I wouldn’t order again. Large portions.

Pizzas were good but didn’t love the gamey sausage that came on the pepperoni pizza, plain pep would have been better. Everyone in my party took it off and put it to the side. Pinot by the glass was good. Nutella pizza was delish and worth the calories if you feel like dessert.

My husband and I have been coming here since they happened. Great staff, great food and consistent service. The pizza is bare none the best I’ve had in the city. And their Caesar dressing is amazing. It is small and cozy and charming. Perfect for a date or a meet up with a friend. This is our go to spot and we are regulars.

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

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!

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

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.
