Pizzeria
Paisans Pizzeria was started by Luigi as a family business in Cicero, Illinois, back in 1985. Luigi started with one small oven, filling orders one at a time. Over time, Luigi’s success with the original Paisans allowed Pete, Luigi’s son, to take over and expand operations into Brookfield, Illinois; here the reputation of our award-winning, thin crust, Chicago-style pizza grew and grew! Were now serving thousands of satisfied customers every day in-house, by delivery and at special catered events.

I walked 1+ miles to the venue; however, when I got there it was closed 😡 I re-checked the hours on my app and my accepted reservation time. No indication the venue would be closed.

Open Table accepted reservations when the restaurant was closed. I paid for parking and had to search for a place close by so I wouldn’t lose money.

Pizza far too sweet for my taste. No other discernible flavor. Bacon on my bacon and onion pizza almost impossible to see and taste. Very disappointing. But wait staff was very friendly

Service was pretty poor. Took my parents for dinner with no expectations this was 5 star quality. It was an average Friday night. 1) the bartender served us flat beers, later acknowledging the CO2 was out but continued to serve flat beers to other customers 2) took well over 20 minutes to get a cocktail that had melted ice by the time it was served 3) the servers kept forgetting dishes we ordered. When we reminded them, it was more efficient to grab our food from the window ourselves. In the end, they automatically charged 20% gratuity and charged us for the flat beers we didn’t drink. They did eventually discount us, which ended up being the only satisfying quality of the meal.

The server was good antld attentive, we got everything we needed in a timely manner. The sampler platter was delicious. The beer was also great. The only issue I had was with their "deep dish" pizza. Please do not call a pan pizza deep dish. They are NOT the same. This is not deep dish. MAYBE I'll try their thin crust another time, but maybe I won't.

Good food and value. Server was very nice, pleasant professional; but a bit slow at times (had to hunt him down for our check). But he looked like he was a college student, so will give him a pass. Good mix of families, professionals and young folks; great vibe. Nice, open airy windows, good environment (we were lucky enough to score a table by the windows, which gave it that cafe effect. Hoping the owners will consider putting a cafe out front when it gets warmer, would make it a really great spot.

Casual, family-friendly vibe & great service. The food was quite flavorful, with lots of menu choices. Best fried calamari I've had in the South/West Loop area.

Do not order pizza. No flavor. Ingredients too large. No seasoning added.

We showed up for our reservation and were informed that the restaurant was closed. According to the bartender, their hours are wrong on OpenTable, and they actually close at 8PM (our reservation was at 8:30).

We had been there once before, and the food was good. Bartender was friendly. We really wanted to support this new restaurant, but I can't imagine we will be back after this experience. There are plenty of other great pizza places in the neighborhood who know how to keep a reservation.

I hate to leave a one-star, but there's no other rating that makes sense considering that we weren't even able to dine here and had to scramble to find something else to eat. Disappointing.

Please update your hours!
