Family is visiting Chicago and we picked Pizano’s for lunch. To our surprise it was very good. The service is good. Recommend for their deep dish pizza, wings and a carb free pizza.

I was in town for a wedding and it was my first time in Chicago so I wanted Chicago deep dish pizza! It was fabulous! Over my 5 days in Chicago, I tried many pizzas at places recommended as the best, but none were better than Pizanos. Even better than Lou Malnottis! Plus, you can make a reservation. I ate there twice and wish I hadn't wasted my time trying others.

The deep-dish Pizza was as good as some of the more famous places in Chicago. Overall, our experience at Pizano's was better than these other famous venues, because we were able to make a reservation for 6 people on a Saturday night with only a couple hours notice (the others places were too busy) and the restaurant was somewhat busy, yet not so crowded that it was too loud. My table of six was able to talk at a normal level and hear each other. Great pizza, great local beer, and a great time.

I brought a couple of clients from out of town from a conference at McCormick Place West. It was easy to get to and with a reservation very easy to be seated. Our server was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He was more than willing to talk about the deep dish pizza and what made Pizanos special (the butter crust). It made for an easy, great lunch.

I had seen the restaurant a few times when attending a Sky game. So when I needed a place to eat before Cirque du Soleil I thought of them.

Great casual sports bar ambiance with Italian Food and Pizza as the main focus on the menu. We had toasted ravioli and sausage and peppers as appetizers......both were top notch. The large meat lovers deep dish pizza was 8 big slices and fed 4 hungry dudes following a day at a trade show at McCormick Place. The deep dish was not quite as thick as some of the other better know joints in Chicago but the meat and sauce had a great flavor and we were not disappointed. This joint is in walking distance of all the hotels near McCormick place and well worth a visit.....plus, you avoid all the traffic of having to head north the other big name joints.

We have enjoyed this restaurant in the past, but we’re somewhat disappointed on this visit. The $12.50 salad for the table was not served until after an entree salad had been served, required two reminders, and was not worth the price. We received spaghetti and small meatballs rather than the side order of meatballs we ordered after being informed there would be two 8 ounce meatballs. The pizza was bland. An off night, I guess.

A group of us went to lunch there during a huge conference at McCormick Place. We had a wonderful server who understood how important our time was. He got our order in quickly and he went above and beyond to make lunch enjoyable! Pizza and cheesy garlic bread were fabulous, but it was our hostess that was rude. I know you're busy but when I approached the hostess stand to check to see if my group had checked in she looked at me and said "What?" I asked if we were checked in her response was "Yeah" and then I asked if she happened to know how much longer it would be and her response was "I don't know." Now I was not being pushy, I was simply asking. I was just so hppay her negative energy didn't damper our experience. I would definitely go back because the food and server were Amazing!

The place has great ambiance.
We were expecting great food- however, it was nothing to write home about.
The flavors were "safe" and the chicken lemon was over cooked.
Our waiter was speedy with service to begin, and then the service tapered off.
I would go back but only to have cocktails before an event.

Pizano’s was recommended to us by a good friend and Chicagoan. Pizza was a little disappointing. Greasy and the sauce slid around on top of the crust. Not bad, just not up to other Chicago Pizza expectations.

On a positive note: they were able to seat us 45 minutes early for our reservation.
