Two Italian Style Brick Fired Oven Pizzeria's In Chicago – The pizza is really good and give Pizza Doc high marks for quality and taste. On the other hand, the place has zero personality inside and they have been operating successfully for awhile now so there is no excuse for not dressing up the place to be cool or having a warm feeling atmosphere. Also, uninviting looking website too. On the flipside Pizzeria Via Stato aka Osteria Via Stato on 620 N State St. has great service and good presence BUT the pizza was awful and what's the deal with the name that I bet nobody can remember when asked?
if you prefer thin crust pizza this is the place to go – thin crust pizza here is good, the toppings are fresh, you can really taste it. i will come back to try their other pizzas. If you like thin crust pizza i recommend this place.
Pizza for true pizza lovers – Pizza DOC is where I go in Chicago when I want a REAL pizza. Deep Dish Pizza should be called Italian Hotdish, not Pizza. People who complain about DOC's pizza's being soupy in the middle or too thin... You people need to stick with your cassaroles and hot dishes. You don't know what awesome pizza is- even while you're shoveling it into your own pieholes! If you have been searching for the best flavor and texture in Chicago- You MUST eat at Pizza DOC. You will LOVE IT too!
Best pizza I have ever had! – Wow! Perfect wood fired pizza, great crust, amazing toppings, I would eat it every night if I could get away with it. The restaurant is normally fairly crowded and often has a wait (it could use a bigger bar space to wait at) so I end up ordering takeout but I LOVE the potato & rosemary, boscaiola, ham & mushrooms, bressola, and pretty much every pizza I have ever ordered. Also good salads but there's really only one reason I go here - the best pizza I have ever tasted in the country.
Fantastic! – Whenever we've been to Pizza D.O.C., they've always been busy...single, couples, families, groups. There's always a happy "hum" to the place. All of the staff make us feel welcome and the customer service is unfaillingly excellent. The best wood-fired pizza I've ever had. The rest of their menu looks excellent, but we've never managed to get past the pizza!
WOW!!! – This place has to be one of the most authentic italian places in the city. It reminds me if the summer that I spent in Rome. I love eating here. It has to be one of my favorites!!!!!
If you want to get kicked out go here.... – I was dissapointed with my recent visit. I arrived at 6:30 and was told that there was a 1/2 hour wait. This was odd as there were 5-10 open tables. We were seated quickly though. We had our dinner, which was mediocre. The pasta portions were small for the money, and they weren't willing to split my salad . My husband had to ask for a refill 3X before he got one. The worst part of it was that the server came up to ask at the end and said that the hostess was waiting for our table. This was at 7:15. We weren't even there for an hour and there were at least 5 open tables of our size when we left. When I asked the manager she said it was their policy if you didn't have a reservation. It was rude and tacky.
Best Italian Style pizza in the city! – Modest surroundings, tough parking, a possible long wait, yes--- but here hidden beside a Laurence strip mall is the best true Italian style pizza in the city! Tremendous selection of the freshest ingredients: all imported from Italy--- even the gigantic stone oven used to bake the perfect, smoky crust! There's also pasta, chicken and fish to choose from for the non-pizza oriented. Ignore the rest, esp. the next door Pizza Hut-- they will sonn be forgotton! Go with patience, it's worth the wait!
Woodfire oven = good – I can only speak of the pizzas here because, hey, I stick with what I like. These pizzas are the antidote to deep dish heartburn woes. They are light, but flavorful, simple, yet delicious. I have always enjoyed the wine list, and the staff have been excellent with recommendations, even during busy periods. Just expect a wait on weekends.
Great food but Pricey – Awesome traditional pizzas, but I found $12-14 really steep for a thin pizza for one. The pastas are fantastic....especially the spinach and blue cheese gnocchetti!! Not too overpowering with cheese, it was just enough food. Great date spot as the wait staff is attentive but not overly so.
