Very good deep dish and flatbread pizza! Not a quiet restaurant but relaxed atmosphere. Recommended by a shoreline tour guide native!

The restaurant was recommended to us by a friend and we were not disappointed. We came for the pizza and found it to be excellent. The wait staff and host were attentive. But the food quality stood out.

Absolutely! It was Mother's Day and we left after theatre reservations till the last minute and didn't have a problem getting seated at 5:00 pm. The food was delicious. The portions were perfect, not too large and not too small. THE best medley of veggies, I have ever eaten. Tiramisu is excellent, and the coffee strong and just right. Jose was sweet and personable. I have never had a bad experience at Labriole.

Great Paloma cocktail at the bar before sharing a Caesar salad (portion is the easily shareable for two), a nicely cooked braesola with one of the best polenta and topped off by a signature salsiccia pizza. We were too full for a party of two to take down the large piece of chocolate cake that is risotto and nutella based. We’ll have to come back for the deep dish pizza another time. The service was great and friendly. The pace of food delivery can be too quick so advise your server on when you want your food. Best bet is to order one course at a time as the food staff is very efficient and can’t help themselves. Adequate selection of wine and not too pricey. Prices are reasonable overall too.

Staff was very accommodating as our table reservation size had increased; they moved us to a bigger table quickly. Our table loved the Thin crust pizza. Toasted ravioli nachos was a delicious take on 2 favorites. We had to ask for our water to be refilled but overall the service was great.

First time coming here after reading some reviews and deciding to try something new. Definitely one of the best deep dishes in Chicago but the menu is full of other great stuff. service was good and friendly. The wine list was surprisingly good as well. But back to the deep dish. Great crispy shelled crust with a nice amount of caramelization around the edges. Really high quality tomatoes which my nieces could not stop eating. Great ingredients; Italian sausage, bacon, pepperoni, and mushrooms that we had on our custom pie had really great flavor even by themselves. The ratio of cheese and crust and tomato was also perfect. Might be my new favorite.

We were celebrating a work memorial, and George, the manager, made it a special evening! Thank you!

And of course the deep dish pizza was the best, and we also enjoyed the salad.

Appetizers, Salads and Pastas are Huge and big enough to share! Even though the address is "Michigan Ave.", Labriola is a hidden gem off Michigan on Upper Grand. Ask for a table in the back if you want less noise. We plan to go back and eat outside.

Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The manager even went out of his way to make sure our first cocktail was on the happy hour pricing since it was 5 minutes before it ended and our waiter was busy! Loved the meatballs, the baked ziti was good, not spectacular, but good. I will definitely visit again my next time in Chicago.

It was a rainy Tuesday night, so not crowded, not noisy. Service was spot on, very attentive. Food was great and the portions were large. Some construction is going on and would love to go back on a nice day when the work is finished. It looked like outdoor dining is available.

The atmosphere was like that of a large banquet room, noisy and cavernous. Our server was friendly, but inattentive. Our entrees weren’t delivered together, we didn’t have napkins, but everyone was pleasant. Prices were reasonable and the food was good enough except for the Alfredo noodles which were not cooked enough.

Great dinner after watching the new Penguin movie in iMax. My husband and I shared a large a calamari appetizer, a very large caesar salad, and a penne a la vodka pasta dish. The bread served with the meal was excellent. We were not able to finish the entree, and took home enough for a second dinner for each of us!

Love this place! I always get the mussels in red sauce and my wife gets the zucchini fritti appetizers. Huge portions! In fact, I don't think I've ever had better mussels anywhere. We followed our "small plates" with an order of Linguine Di Mare and Penne Alla Vodka. Both excellent. Plenty left over to take home. Good food, good service, great portions. What's not to like?

When are from out of town and looking for a pizza place that served deep dish. We definitely lucked out with Labriola’s. The service was good and the deep dish pizza was outstanding. My wife can be pretty picky at times and she couldn’t wait to eat the leftovers the next morning! Dress is casual and noise level is moderate. Easy place to take kids to as well.
