First time caller, Long time listener. True Chicago deep dish from Pizanos, located on the corner of Wabash and Madison in the loop. Very good taste, one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had honestly, however the crust/dough was lacking as it was very bland. Add in the natural musk of the streets of Chicago, piss, sewage, homelessness and the roar of the orange line to beef up the true Chicago atmosphere, you find yourself with a 7.3. Would recommend- but sit inside.

Great location as this restaurant is a block away from Millennium Park, but the pizza itself is average. The butter crust was thin and crispy, and there was a good amount of cheese, but unfortunately the sauce was flavorless. I hoped that the more slices I ate, the pizza would get better, but I was simply left unsatisfied. Simply put, this pizza tasted very similar to a Home Run Inn pizza, (which can be found in the freezer aisle at your local grocery store), and that says a lot more about Home Run Inn than Pizano’s. There are much worse spots to get pizza from in this area, however Pizano’s is very far from being considered as some of the best in Chicago.

Not really sure what this pizza community is thinking with the pretty average scores… this is some of the best buttery deep dish crust around — and when it’s used for thin like we opted for this evening, it’s pretty spectacular. We got a half cheese and a half mushroom and sausage. Sausage was really good but I’d probably just go for the cheese next time. Cheese had a really good, fresh Moz flavor, and the tomato sauce add a really nice tanginess to it. The crust is where it’s at though. Flaky, buttery, almost a sourdough tartness. The best. Seriously don’t sleep on this place, the deep dish is good but the thin is possibly even better.

Went with thin crust in a deep dish town, judge me I don’t care. Buttery and crispy crust, fresh tomato sauce and well-seasoned sausage makes for a delicious pizza. Pairs well with Miller Lite

So good. Was going to try gios but 2 hour wait!! Great second choice. No flop at all for a Chicago deep dish. Not full of grease. Cooked crispy. Amazing crust.

Absolutely love the crust and sauce. Some of the best in the city.

Tomato sauce tasted fresh, but the cheese did not. Crispy crust was nice just found myself craving more of that fresh sauce. Overall score 6.3 seems fair.

i went with the thin which i think was a good call after lou malnati’s. i liked it slightly more. amazing crunchy, buttery crust. coulda used more sauce and/or less cheese.
