I like that their crust is on the thin side, though not ultra thin. The put more cheese on their pizzas than any other pizzeria I've tried (and I've tried a lot!) Now that we're watching what we eat, we ask for them to go easy on the cheese and then it comes with the amount of cheese that you... More

We ate at this restaurant with my brothers family. The restaurant looked clean the service was good and the food was great. I had the barbecue chicken pizza which was outstanding. There were seven of us held together and everybody's food look good. We were in town for a competition for my brother son and I appreciate that they were... More

Was very impressed by the pizza at this place. It is the first place in town that has really good wings which is really important to me. Went here with friends and kids and were very comfortable.

We had tried Gelsosomos in Portage and the pizza was passable. We thought the Chesterton location might be better. It was not. The crust was limp and gummy. It is a shame that very respectable ingredients, are combined into such a poor end result. I have often said that the same ingredients can result in a great meal or a... More

We ordered this pizza for delivery. Delivery was quick and the pizza was hot. They did not skimp on the ingredients, which was a plus, but the sauce is a very sweet sauce. It was too sweet for us. I hate leaving a review that is less than stellar for something like this but feel other customers might want to... More

I've patronized this restaurant for more than 10 years. It was once good. No more. First, your staff is rude - not just rude, but nasty. The jerk who answers the phone should be fired immediately. And the teens who run your kitchen need to learn to cook or tossed out the door. The idiots you have working for you... More

This gelsosomos has a different menu than the one in Portage in reference to their pizzas. The sizes and ingrediants are totally different so I couldn't get what I was used to. Their prices are higher than the Portage store as well, I figured being owned by the same family and the same store, the menu would have been the... More

This is the only place for pizza. for me. The crust is not too thick, the sauce is perfect, the toppings include their own sausage and many more to chose from

Well obviously it isn't Chicago, it is Indiana duh... but seriously hats off for the effort as the service was great. The pizza however would be in my humble opinion, an acquired taste. The sauce seems to be quite sweeter than what I am accustom to. The sweetness took away from the other flavors of the pizza.
