Delicious authentic margherita pizza! Friendly and attentive service. A quick and relatively cheap option off Michigan ave. Would recommend and return!
Don’t let the name of this place confuse you...we weren’t sure what to expect. They serve great Naples style thin crust pizza, calzones and salads with table service and make mozzarella on site. Worked out great for our group of ten on a Friday night. Right across from the water tower. Really fast service due to the wood burning oven that cooks the pizzas at a super high temps. Beer and wine service.
The staff is SO NICE and the pizza is delicious! Very clean and nice decor; felt very Italian. Definitely recommend!
Great location if you’re looking for a meal on the Mag Mile. We were there at noon on a busy pre-holiday Thursday and there was hardly anyone in there. Were told the burrata is homemade so ordered some as an appetizer. Was OK. I use Spaccia Napoli as my gold standard and this didn’t measure up. It was pleasing but I found it a little bland. Got the margherita pizza. It was subpar. Cheese was OK but sauce was bland and the crust was ordinary. Server was attentive and friendly. I hope they have success as their location should draw a lot of tourists and shoppers, but we probably won’t go back - too many other options.
We were very disappointed. Other times they were perfect but not this time. One half of our order came fast but No one seemed interested in checking our table to find out why we did not have our meal. We had to ask a staff member to check on our order. When it arrived, 15 min. later, it was not hot but just warm. We hope that this is not going to happen again.
Went with a few friends. The decor was beautiful and food was amazing.
Truly delicious pizza
We loved the coffee in the morning and then salad for lunch and then went back the next day for dinner and pizza
Great and inventive pizzas.
Short staffed compromised service and wait times. Was looking forward to the burrata but the outer mozzarella was thicker than I’ve had and the inside was more watery than I would have liked.
Pizza was very good. A little too thin for me. Mozzarella terrific.
Very disappointed they only served wine & no mixed drinks.
The food and service were great - but the noise level will most likely keep me from going back or even recommending. It was so loud that my table couldn't hear each other.
It is a cafe style setting with Michigan Ave. prices. A couple of pizzas and a salad with tip will set you back $60+ (no drinks). I agreed that they have a OK selection of beers and wines for a cafe and the staffs are definitely friendly and attentive. Service was very fast, the pizzas were done before the Carprese. The ingredients are fresh for sure, and the pizza dough is indeed the best at least for me because it is chewy. It is not easy to find Neapolitan style pizza (thin crust) that is not on the harder and dry side. But personally I think the pizzas are missing some flavors, I felt like eating a pizza salad with no dressing but that might be good for some people. By no means I am one of those pizza dough dip in ranch typecof guy, but I think the pizza sauce needs a little more depth. Comparatively speaking my recent visit to Pizzeria Portofino was quite different. I will have to find a reason to come back here.
This pizza is good, but you're really here for the view. My biggest grip: the $20 Mediterranean salad. They give you salad that is layered and not mixed and they place it in a small bowl. It isn't fun mixing it and having salad spill during the process. This was likely done for Instagramers, but I'm unsure if people post pictures of *salads* on Instagram and if they did, are they really your customer? I didn't get an olive in my *Mediterranean* salad until the very end because, you know, I have a small bowl with an unmixed salad. Mix the salad for your customers. There is no reason to do this because it makes no sense.
