I love Pizzeria Uno. They are a classic Chicago landmark restaurant. The deep dish pizza here is so good, it's not the classic deep dish you think of like the kind you get from ...


One word- overrated. I liked the deep dish crust, but a whole slab of sausage...yuck! That's too much, plus the pizza needed more cheese. There's several not-so-known pizza pla...

Great deep dish pizza 1/24/2011

Good: I like how you place your order when you put your name down for the waiting list. This place is seemingly always packed so at least they make the most efficient use of time that they can. This way, you don't wait as long after you're seated to get your pizza (since deep dish takes longer to cook). The pizza itself tastes good--most notably the crust tastes pie-like and the cheese is nice and stringy.. Bad: I don't like how crowded the place can get and there's not a lot of physical room inside the restaurant itself. At times it can get really loud too so it's hard to have a conversation with the people you're with.. more

Chicago pizza. Thank you. 7/11/2006

Yeah, yeah. Sounds stupid to be reviewing Uno's in Chicago, but man can you get a good meal here. Maybe I got caught up in the hype and maybe I had already slotted this place as being great, but tell that to the tons of people packing this place when I was there. more

Pizzeria Uno 4/29/2006

I find it profoundly sad that visitors to Chicago might go to Pizzeria Uno and think that they've had the quintessential Chicago dining experience. They claim to have invented Chicago-style pizza, but they may well have the worst interpretation of it in the city these days. The crust was crumbly and sweet, almost like a graham cracker pie crust. The sauce was alright, but not great. The wait was excruciating (ok, I admit, any wait for food is excruciating for me) and the bill was high. If you're looking for Chicago pizza, please, please, please do yourself a favor and go to Giordano's or Edwardo's or Caffe Florian, or any number of other places. more

Uno 3/11/2006

I love this place! They've got deep dish Chicago style pizza without the overcheesyness of Gino's, and great sandwiches and appetizers. The salads are pretty average and boring though. It's a fun place to go out for dinner with friends. The staff have always been helpful to me. They usually won't mind pulling together a couple tables for large parties. It's almost always overcrowded, and loud, but I think it's worth the wait. more

Deep Dish Pizza 3/10/2006

If you want some serious Chicago syle deep dish pizza, then this is your place. I think this place serves up the best pizza in Chicago. They have a good number of topping options, but the spinoccoli, which is the deep dish with spinach and brocolli is definitely my all time favorite. If you go here for lunch you get a salad and a personal deep dish pizza for only $5.95. You can not beat that deal for a very tasty meal that is super filling too. Plus, they deliver too. more

Chicago-Style Deep Dish Pizza

Owner Message

  • Founder Ike Sewell, now deceased, introduced Chicago to deep-dish pizza when he opened Pizzeria Uno in 1943, and it has become the city's signature dish. Pizzeria Due opened a short hop away (at 619 N. Wabash) in 1955 and offers the same menu in a larger space. Many tourists are surprised when they hear their pizza will take a minimum of 45 minutes to prepare, though a sign outside warns them of this fact. An "Express Lunch" is available between 11:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. The room's not much, a total of 18 small tables and five booths, plus an eight-seat bar. (Pizzeria Due is more lavish, and can handle parties of 30-40 people.) The pizza, not the atmosphere, brings 'em in.


  • In Short
    The pies take 45-60 minutes to bake at this low-ceilinged, dark pizza joint, so a host takes orders from customers while they stand in line. It's all deep dish--no thin-crust...
