The staff are fun and helpful. The food tasted great. The atmosphere is friendly and there are tables as well as booths for date night. Great atmosphere, great staff and our favorite Chicago deep dish pizza!

Great deep dish pizza! We have eaten at Labriola's on a previous trip to Chicago and it's now a normal stop for deep dish.

Food was average. The gnocchi is one of their specialties and it was doughy and heavy and somewhat tasteless. The thin crust sausage pizza had a crust that was difficult to chew- somewhat overdone. All in all, a bit expensive for the experience

Great food and service. Very tight seating area though. Worth sitting in the cramped space for the quality of the food.

We had a reservation at 6:15 for 4. Showed up 15 minutes early and would have been happy waiting, but were taken to a table for 2. The table was not made to hold two salads and the bread brought to are table. The same was true of two medium pizza’s along with our four drinks. They should have seated us at a table for 4.

Once again, Labriola doesn’t disappoint. We always end up here when we visit Chicago and it’s consistently amazing every time.

Upon entering we were hoping to be seated in the "Non-Yelling Room", so be prepared for that. NO problem at all if you're into an energetic experience (which we were, just not of the yelling sort)
I had lasagna, which was better than average. My wife had Fettuccine Alfredo which was lacking in the flavor department. It was ok, but, there are only four ingredients in this dish and the garlic was, sadly, not among them here.
The service was...interesting. Our initial server was far too quiet for the noise level but he evidently heard US because the orders were correct.
The guy that actually brought the food had the finesse of a dock worker. We had to hurriedly move salad plates because that main course was coming whether we wanted it or not!
Pretty good all around. I'd go back...maybe on a nice Tuesday and ask for some garlic with my Fettuccine.

It was exactly what we needed. Close to the hotel, relaxed (but nice) vibe. It’s not an over the top place but we enjoyed it.

Mamas Meatballs were the best! Thin crust pizza was amazing! Our server was a little preoccupied rolling silverware in napkins but he was very kind. Will definitely go back.

Everything was perfect, except for our server. He seems very unhappy the entire time. Maybe he was having an off day 🤷🏻‍♀️. Overall excellent pizza!

Not my best experience here as I have been before. Rest rooms were filthy and my chair was so wobbly if it was in my home I would have thrown it away. Took a long time to be greeted but service was decent after that.

The Danny’s Special deep dish pizza was a disappointment. The edges were burnt and the tomato sauce flavor was not very good. Our server was great, however. Basically I’d avoid this place if your are looking for a true Chicago pizza experience. It seems like a mediocre tourist trap.

Very good food and good service. Quite loud but seemed to fit the atmosphere. We would definately go back. The homemade pastas are terrific and so is the Braciole and Salsiccia Artisan Pizza. Also excellent calamari appetizer.

Food was really tasty. We had/shared chicken vesuvio + hearts of palm/arugula salad. Service was very attentive with multiple staff responding. Not crowded, about half full at this "off" hour. Will recommend and return.

I was told it was my friends favorite pizza and I have to try it. However, we decided to go with the artisan pizza instead of the deep dish (have to go back for that and more). The pizza crust and the sauce were outstanding and we also got Grandmas Best Spaghetti and Meatballs. The pasta was perfect. Perfect consistency to the noodle, a great tasting and textured meatball along with the fantastic sauce. Loved it and have to go back for the deep dish and also the seafood pasta dish which looked out of this world. Looking around everyone was so involved and enjoying whatever they ordered. It lived up and may have surpassed the hype my friend gave it.

Delish! Did not disappoint... we had reservations for 4 but 2 of us showed up early and were accommodated, then 5 in total and they made it work even though the place was packed! Food, drinks, dessert, ambiance and service were all great! Good times

Went with friends. Make a reservation; it gets very busy! For nice weather has a few outdoor tables. Was noisy due to the crowd; a little hard to hear conversation. Food was very good, portions quite robust overall. Staff is very friendly and good natures.

Calamari and zucchini too heavily breaded and over fried.
Bracciole ordered by 3 of us - too salty and not bracciole in the truest sense- not stuffed with anything.
Wouldn’t return

Just based on our experience, the food is not special. everything else was good. We went here because it was close. I wish we had chosen a different Italian place. Will in the future.
