Went to Pizza Art Cafe for dinner Friday night. Made reservations same day for 7 pm. Seated immediately upon arrival. They have a wood burning pizza oven right by the entrance. The restaurant is cozy, and it filled up as we had our first course. My wife enjoyed a very large Greek salad while I had the white bean soup.... More

I've eaten here many times on our visits to friends in the Lincoln Square area, where the Pizza Art Cafe is a handy neighborhood stop for dinner. There's a full American Italian menu, all of it good, some excellent. The pizzas are lovingly made in a wood-burning oven, and I've watched the chef test and re-test to make sure the... More

This place knows pizza! We love it. It gets crowded but there's a reason; their pizza is great! It's rustic, thin crust but that's one thing that sets it apart. This is a must visit place.

We live not far from Pizza Art, so we have visited many times. If the place is busy, you'll want to get your appetizer and especially your pizza orders in quickly. It takes a while. We suggest the crostini with smoked meat, a rib cut they smoke on site. You can also get pizza with the same meat. Whether you... More

We tried this place in December 2014, a few days after Christmas. On the night we went in the place was jammed and loud, which was a great thing. Every table was filled, people seemed to be genuinely enjoying being there and having a good time. My wife and I brought a bottle of wine (byob) and sat down. We... More

Delicious brick oven pizza, salads and appetizers, and great authentic deserts. I recommend trying bruschetta, greek or prosciutto salad, and literally any pizza on the menu. Oh! And Pizza Art is BYOB.

This is a neighborhood BYOB place, don't expect 5 star service and you'll have a great meal. Atmosphere is perfect, especially now it's getting cold.

This is a noisy, fun neighborhood restaurant that really knows how to make good food. You will have to wait for a table even with a reservation but it's worth the wait. Their salads easily feed 2-3 people. We ordered the house salads and they are better than most house salads. They have a vast menu of thin crust brick... More

This is a great small neighborhood place with an amazingly long list of brick oven pizzas from which to select. Starting with appetizers, try the vaguely identified Smoked Meats. We're not big meat eaters, but we never pass on this one. The Bruschetta with smoked meat is another favorite. Then with the pizza selection you can't really go wrong. If... More
