Now, I asked for extra crispy and they gave it to me like that, so I can’t really complain, but the slice was a bit too crispy. Aside from the crispness, it didn’t taste the freshest. The pepperonis were the crowing jewel, however. You might love this pizza if you’re a big fan of Dave Portney, enjoy the rain, and are excited to see Chicago downtown. It’s a 6.7 for me.

The cheese to grease ratio on this bad boy is optimal. Undercarriage could’ve used more leoparding, but it still had a really nice crisp ones. The real MVP of this pie is the Ezzo pepperoni. Great cuppage, good thickness, excellent bite. Topped it all off with some excellent beignets

Amazing New York-style slice. Perfectly proportioned cheese and sauce. Zero flop. Great undercarriage. Quality fresh toppings. This is the GOAT of Chicago.

This is some great pizza! New York style in Chicago which is incredibly hard to find. Sauce has incredible flavor with a tangy after taste that is quite addicting. Cheese hardens a little, but sticks to the slice which makes this an enjoyable pizza to eat one handed for any occasion. Little to no oil, and a crunchy undercarriage throughout, with a airy crust that is a compliments the slice. Anytime, anywhere, incredibly good pizza. I would make this drive if I was on the hunt for some seriously solid pizza.

A really good pizza. Unreal crunch and crisp. Great crust. My type of pizza. It just could’ve been in 9s with a little bit more flavor. Happy I made the trip to try it.

Crispy crust, cupping pepperoni, no flop. Little pricey but the best in the area.

Pretty good, tastes real. Only issue, tastes like Whole Foods pizza slightly, which sucks. They should drop the price down by $1 per slice, $4 is too much.

For NY pizza in Chicago - I’d give it a 9.2 on the One Bite Scale. In NYC, I think they would still score high .. at least 8.4.

Best pepperoni on a slice in the city. Good cheese but kinda bland. Semi big flop but increasingly crispier crust on the way to a big crunch crust.

Alright, first off wow. Delicious. Fantastic crunch and minimal flop. The sauce needs some work.. it's a bit too sweet.. immediately thought of spaghetti-o's.. needs more kick & tang and spices. Crunch is perfect. Cheese is perfect. Ultimately, favorite pizza in this neighborhood so far.

Just ok pizza and nothing amazing. Many better places in Chicago. Toppings and sauce were good, but super dry crust. Huge portion size so it’s good value.
