About the restaurant
WE ARE NOW OPEN FOR DINE-IN BUSINESS. WELCOME BACK
This year marks the 50th-year anniversary of the one and only Chicago Pizza & Oven Grinder Co. Since opening their doors in 1972, CPOG has been serving its unique style of pizza, the Pizza Pot Pie- an original- baked in a bowl filled with cheese; homemade sauce from scratch (each batch takes 10 hours of prep and cooking time); large fresh mushrooms and topped with a triple raised Sicilian bread-type dough; then inverted ceremoniously at your table. Six mouth-watering gargantuan Oven Grinders, several colossal salads with distinctive, original homemade dressings and the Mediterranean Bread round out its menu.
In the heart of Lincoln Park in Chicago, this cozy restaurant is housed in a historical building. Set across the street from the site of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, this three story brownstone is claimed to have been used as a look out for Al Capone’s gang during the legendary hit back in 1929.

My parents request Robert’s every time they’re in town and I always look forward to going. The Cali Italia is a must every visit. Great service and good vibes overall. Still need to try their patio in the summer!

About the restaurant
Bringing traditional Vera Pizza Napoletana to the modern West Loop.

Please note we do not take reservations for our entire restaurant leaving room for walk-ins.

For Our Gluten Free Diners we highly recommend reserving gluten free dough. In our effort to serve the best and safest quality product our gluten free is available in limited supply, we strive to always have it available sometimes demand is greater and we do run out.

Vera Pizza Napoletana is made with a soft dough and takes about one minute to cook in a Wood-Burning oven. Because of this Pizza Napoletana has several distinctive characteristics. Pizza in Napoli is soft and foldable and can be considered “wet” by American standards. For this reason, people in Napoli generally eat their pizza with a knife and fork. Blackened char spots on the pizza crust is a tell–tale sign of Pizza Napoletana that has been cooked in a blistering hot, wood-burning oven. Each Pizza is an individual work of art.

Pizza was better than any of those in downtown Chicago (and we’ve had them all, multiple times). I liked that the pizza wasn’t all ‘dough’ like other Chicago pizzas. Enough dough to be Chicago style, but not too much where you could actually taste the other toppings. The service was friendly, not rushed and on top of things. And the bank wasn’t broken!!

The best broasted chicken dinner you can find anywhere. Other menu choices are also worth a try. Wonderful food, service, and ambience.

About the restaurant
Welcome to La Crosta Woodfire Pizzeria Italiana. Here we share our vision of authentic Italian traditional pizza, which dates back to the Greco-Roman period and starts with fresh, high quality ingredients. Many of them are flown in from Italy, including our tomatoes, flour and burrata cheese. Our dough is handmade daily. In fact, La Crosta in Italian means “the crust” and we believe our fluffy crust is the best in the business. In all, I’ve created a comfortable restaurant for you and your friends to spend time together and create new memories.

About the restaurant
Thank you for choosing SLYCE, where pizza is our passion. We have preserved the art of making hand crafted artisanal coal fired pizzas. Our mission is simple: Have a simple menu that allows us to focus special attention to every ingredient that comes into our building. We choose and use the best quality ingredients possible. We do not believe in premade, mass produced food. We source locally grown or raised products whenever possible and use one of the cleanest natural burning resources to heat our ovens. At SLYCE less is more, as our fresh ingredients are delicately placed, not piled on, to create a perfectly balanced pie. Our dough is made in house daily, hand stretched to order, and baked next to a burning pile of coal giving it a thin, bubbly crust with charred edges and leopard spotting on the bottom. So sit back and relax, as we hand craft you one of your favorite, perfectly charred pies.
