What a great find for a lone traveler...thanks – After a crazy day traveling to Chicago, lost bags, missed flights, and cell phone left in the cab. I was tired, a bit angry and very hungry. I had plans to go to a fancy little joint, as had no bags and it was getting late I needed FOOD! Staying nearby at hotel 71 (great hotel, bad food) i stubbled on this great little italian joint...WOW! service, food both top notch. Sat at the small bar as place was packed. The very nice lady took great care to make my visit very enjoyable. She offered a great wine and rigatoni with sausage and roasted red pepper sauce...off the hook good. The next night I was to dine at The Purple Pig...rated top 10 in America...after much disappointment w/ food there, see review...I ended up back at Bella. Great Pizza...nay... outstanding PIZZA! go, you will love it.
Good Food; Terrible Service – I can't deny it, this moderately priced pizza place has very tasty pizza. However, the last time I visited this place I was double charged. For the past three weeks I have asked to speak with a manager to get this issue resolved. Not only has everyone I talked to be exceptionally rude, but nobody has bothered to call me back. There "It's not my problem so I don't care," attitude is getting very unprofessional. Considering how often our office places large orders Bella Bacinos, you would think they would treat their guest better.
Good downtown Chicago Pizza – We got the home delievery Sat. night. House salad w/ basil balsamic vinagrette- alot of vinager in that dressing BUT the greens were very fresh and tasty. Kinda small amount thru, but what do you expect with this ecomony. Also, the stuffed Spinach Supreme with the extra free mushrooms- great cheeses and alot of spinach. Seemed like a sprinkle of mushrooms. Flavorable sauce and the crest was better then some of the pizza places in downtown Chicago. All in all, a nice thick and large (we had a medium 12") pizza with a enjoyable salad (with our own dressing). Oh, the delievery time was very quick, for a Saturday night, and the delievery person was super nice. Next time we plan to "bus it" there and get a thin crest pizza with extra mushrooms.
AMAZING place! – My boyfriend and I had reservations here after a night out and as soon as I walked in I was wowed. The atmosphere was great! Old Italian decor, cozy and romantic. Our server was superb and very attentive. The fresh-baked bread and olive oil was a fantastic starter. We ordered a small deep-dish pizza which was perfect for the two of us. The pizza was perfectly cooked: soft flaky crust, gooey cheese, delicious sauce! Definitely try this restaurant!!!
Good, healthier pizza in Loop – Bella's is a great standby for pizza in the Loop. Unlike most Chicago restaurants, esp. pizza places, the menu contains many healthful options and gourmet toppings. The atmosphere, which looks fairly formal, belies it's reasonable prices. The owners should open up a more casual version which caters better to "on the go" patrons.
A Terrible Experience... – After reading the excellent reviews on this website, I had to try Bella Bacino's. We went there for lunch very recently. Quite possibly the worst customer service I have ever experienced. It was not our server, it seamed like every customer in the restaurant was very frustrated with the service. There was no excuse, since it wasn't even crowded, the place was just very poorly managed. No one cared. It took 45 minutes for the famous "stuffed crust spinach" pizza to arrive at our table, and the pizza quality was average at best. This was the only bad meal we had all week while visiting Chicago. Very, very, disappointing.
Phavorite Pizzopolis in TOWN!!! – This place is THE PIZZA HANGOUT in Chi-Town! The ambience, good service, and great food never keep you seperated by distance from having a great all-around dining experience.
Comfortable Italian Loop eatery caters to a hungry business-casual crowd. – The Scene
Cozy and low-lit, this Club Quarters Hotel restaurant's handsome back room attracts businesspeople with warm earth tones and polished chandeliers; one wall is rakishly covered in wooden wine box panels. A few high tables perch in the front bar area, while a handful of outdoor tables offers sunny views of Wacker Drive and the river beyond.
The hearty, homestyle Italian menu offers plenty of variety, from overstuffed panini and fresh pastas to salads and main courses. Bruschetta brimming with ripe tomatoes and fragrant with garlic is a favorite starter, though most diners settle on pillowy-soft--and complimentary--foccacia bread drizzled with olive oil. As for the pizza, Bacino's signature Spinach Supreme lives up to its billing, the firm, flaky crust stuffed with mushrooms, herbs, and a ton of the green stuff.
Best Pizza in Chicago – I'm from Eastern Iowa and when I have travelled to Chicago I always have to stop at Bacinos on Wacker. I have been to Chicago like 15 times in the past few years and I have ate at Bacino's everytime but once. All I can say is if you get to Chicago or live there and haven't tried this food...RUN FAST to this place. It's amazing!!! I can fill up on 2 slices and be stuffed for the next day. It's soo good. The best pizza is the Bacino's Stuffed Crust. The prices are decent and the staff is awesome. Very clean and great place to hang out. Very highly recommended!!!!!!!!!
This is my all time favorite resturant in the world, that's for sure.
The Best – I am currently living in CA. Nothing here compares.
Everytime I visit Chicago I have to go there! On my last visit I brought a friend from California. He knows it's the best too!!!!!
A Veggie pizza and a nice glass of Chianti!
