After our Northwestern college tour, our guide suggested this restaurant for a late lunch. We enjoyed a family salad and two pizza with leftovers to take home. Excellent, knowledgeable waiter. Thanks for a memorable Chicago deep dish experience.

Our first time trying deep dish pizza and it was better than we expected. Great house salad and focaccia. The pizza has a crusty bottom and is less bready than expected. Really tastes great.
