Editorial review from GrubHub 3/11/2013

I am only a couple of bites in to my thin crust pizza and I have to say...I am impressed. I am the most cynical human being when it comes to pizza in Chicago, so don't take what I'm saying with a grain of salt. Well, maybe take it with two grains of salt...for all you know...I might be insane or something. The order came faster than expected via friendly delivery dude. Everything is fan-effin-tastic! I shall order from here again. more

Good thin crust pizza. My only hang-up w/ the order was they forgot my Tiramisu, but they eventually brought it over (a little late, but even that was pretty decent). Definitely a good pizza joint -especially if you are a fan of thin crust pie! more

Awful! 2/12/2011

This place is awful. Okay, I will admit that the food is mediocre, but I've definitely had better. The place has a definite ""dirty"" feel to it. The servers all looked like they didn't want anyone to be there. One of them was cursing as I was there with my young kids. No one was smiling. My kids got 3 broken crayons to color with. When I tried to use some coupons, but I said I wanted one of the entrees to be packed up (out of 4 total), the manager/owner said that the coupons were meant for dine in and if I pack one to go, then he can't let me use the coupon. However, if I packed it myself at the table, it would be okay. Tell me how much common sense that made? And then how do you ask someone if they want another pop, and then charge them for each cup without informing them that they charge for each one. I think most restaurants in Chicago offer unlimited refills on pop. I haven't tipped this poorly in about 10 years. This place is very sad, and I actually feel sorry for the people work there as they seem to have very sorry lives. I would recommend this place if you want to help out some people who need it. more

Love this place. The sausage and garlic pizza is awesome. If you like the crust a little extra crispy (as I do) just ask for well done and they happily oblige. No complaints here. more

Don't you dare complain about anything. 4/29/2007

I?ve been familiar with this place for a long time - over 40 years in fact. During that time I?ve occasionally sworn off ever going there again, and then gone back when I?ve gotten over the reason for that. But just recently I was again reminded of why that happens. The earlier reviewer who complained about the management is correct. They have a definite ?we don?t give a ****? attitude that surfaces whenever you have a complaint about anything, and over a span of 40 years that is bound to happen once in a while. This time I was told over the phone by one of the staff ?well, we have lots of customers,? and hung up on. So........I guess that was the last time, and I?ve pretty much sworn them off for good now. I get truly disgusted with businesses that treat their customers, even longtime customers, with indifference. The quality of the food is immaterial. In my opinion, they deserve to have a lot LESS customers. Pros: In my case, they're close by - that's all. Cons: Respond with indifference to any feedback or complaint. more

Great Thin Crust Pizza -- Take Out or Dine In 2/17/2007

Been searching for a good Pizza joint in the Bucktown/Wicker Park area. Pros: Great Thin Crust Pizza. Cons: Wine is overpriced and small glass. more

Bad Service, Worst Management 2/11/2007

Sadly, the food here is good but the service is horrible. The bad service definitely comes from the top down. The manager, whose name I will refer to only as ""A___"" is rude and obnoxious. We have been ordering food from here for about 12 years now and never had a problem until this manager. The sauce is really good. The menu is pretty varied but the italian food is their specialty, which again is good. However, even if the food was the best in the world, it can't make up for being treated rudely by a manager. Based on that alone, I could not recommend the restaurant to anyone. Pros: Food is good. Cons: Service and Management are so bad as to offset the good food. more
