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.

About the restaurant
Our Elk Grove restaurant, located at 1050 E Higgins Rd, was established in 1971 and was the second Lou Malnati’s pizzeria to ever open! The exterior log cabin design pays homage to the village named after the elk that used to roam the forest preserve just down the road in Busse Woods. Lou Malnati’s Elk Grove offers dine-in, carryout, delivery, catering and a semi-private event space to accommodate up to 60 people. Experience Legendary Chicago Deep Dish and thin crust at the place that’s been perfecting it for 50+ years, with family recipes and high-quality ingredients you just don’t find everywhere.

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.

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.

We were looking for a place to get dinner before a show at Lincoln Hall and this place was perfect! Creative pizzas, great service, cozy vibe and just a block from the venue. It was everything we wanted and more—definitely will be back!

Overall it was a pretty solid experience. They wanted you to preorder the pizzas on order to expedite the wait time. The food overall was well priced and prepared. Our server was adequate but not overly attentive. In his defense, the restaurant was fairly busy. Would still return in a heartbeat

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

Please note we do not take reservations for our Patio outdoors, it is first come first serve. We also operate on a 90 minute dine time for the entire restaurant. Thank you for your corporation

For Our Gluten Free Diners please make reservations for 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.

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.

The food is great, the Argentinian waiter was fantastic, the only annoying thing is the rule of min 3 people to allow a reservation. This rule prevents 2 friends or couples to reserve a table. Food for thought!!

We’ve been coming here at least a couple times a month (on average) for the last five years. This is one of our favorite places for date nights, lunches/dinners when family comes to town, birthdays, and really any occasion. The food is outstanding and everyone who works there is lovely. It seems to be mostly the same staff from when we first started coming which goes to show it’s likely a great place to work and they must treat their employees well, which we’re happy to support! Best espresso martinis in the city!

Great food, of course. It's Lou Malnati's Deep Dish Pizza after all. Grandson's special order handled perfectly. Happy that we had reservations thanks to Open Table. They filled up quickly. Highly recommended.
