From Ohio, so really far away... happened to be driving by and heard it was good. The experience was lackluster at best, we ordered ahead to make it easier and because we called ahead they wouldn't seat us, the pizza was "already in the box" therefore we couldn't sit down when the inside was virtually empty. Not really sure why it would be a problem when you consider that we spent almost 60 dollars on the order.... seemed a bit overhyped and underwhelming.

Finally made it to this Chicago Southside gem. Fantastic thin crust with good crisp and really good sauce. Had a sausage pizza and an Italian beef. Both were phenomenal. Definitely a top 3-5 Chicago pizza for me.

Not sure what pies these were but they were the best I've ever had in CHICAGO! IM IN TOWN TO GET MY 1ST TATTOO EVER! The 2 shops that I went to I took 4 slices from each pie and donated it to the tattoo artist for dealing with my thousands of questions... I want the best in life and went for the best pizza and to the best tattoo shops because nobody's perfect but to strive for perfection,,, Is what I do

The one place I always dreamed of getting to!!! Tavern style thin crust and man this pie is amazing!!! First bite gives a buttery crunch to the undercarriage. The sauce is a bit tangy and paired perfectly to the cheese that has great bite, feel like there could be a dusting of hard cheese underneath. The place is as oldschool as it gets inside with friendly service and atmosphere!! This place was worth the trip in itself but also has got me exploring all of Chicago’s great eats!!

Check that one off the bucket list! I could eat this pizza every day. Crispy crust, great flavor from the sauce and Frankie we didn’t get shot.

Very down to earth people. Very cool spot. Could maybe use a little more flavor.

One Sunday afternoon, I became desperately hungry and was fiending for a nice pie near me. Vito and Nick’s just happened to be 20 minutes away. There was no question but to hop in the car and start driving. The journey there was not the safest being on the south side, but I knew it would all be worth it as my mind could not escape the fact that I was actually headed towards Vito and Nick’s. My mouth watered as I stepped through the door. The place was packed. The low ceilings, the carpet on the walls, the old fashioned pizzeria, the 100 year history, the old Italian Tony at the bar… I could not contain myself. The place was packed. Families and people of all ages dined there and looked like they were having a great time. I sat patiently for the moment the pizza would come out and land in my mouth, satisfying the ultimate pizza desire. After some time, the waitress turned the corner and gently placed the pizza on the table. My eyes widened as I prepared myself for potentially the best pizza that has ever touched my palette. I closed my eyes and thanked God for this moment that was about to ensue. But as the cheese touched my tongue and I bit into the thin Chicago pub-style pie, I remembered that I was still on Earth. My hopes and dreams of an 8+ pizza touching my mouth was crushed. “This is no 8 pizza!” I thought to myself. “Why was everyone lying to me? Is this what Vito was all about? Did Nick approve this?” Even these authentic Italian pizza artists could not master the cheese and sauce pastry. It was very good, don’t get me wrong, but it wasn’t great. The crust was as thin as can be, literally “paper thin” with minimal flop: perfect for a thin crust, no complaints there. The cheese was tough, however, and ripped right off of the pizza with a singular bite, leaving me with an inadequate amount of sauce and a cracker. The flavor of the pizza was good, though, and I would enjoy it on a nice Friday night at the bar. But would I drive 40 minutes for it like Dave? Hell no. I wanted to just absolutely fall in love with it, but it just wasn’t it. People will wonder why this place has such high scores and why Dave rated it an 8.1. Just like he said in his review (which I watched after the fact), he gave them points for the culture, vibes, etc. and even bought a t shirt. He’s not wrong for liking the place… it’s a great old fashioned pizzeria with a great history and great atmosphere. But I do not rate atmospheres. I do not rate happy people in buildings. I do not rate their history. I rate the pizza. That’s what I came here to do and will stick to that. So after all the deliberating and considerations, I still knew from the first bite it was a 7.4 pie. Not outstanding, but a good pizza nonetheless. That’s a review.

Amazing service! Beers 2.25 for old style. Pizza was good. Thin and crisp

For a Dave 8, I thought it would be worth the drive to get to this place, but honestly it would be unjust to rank a pizza so high when other places closer to downtown would be more worth the drive. Still a great pizza chicago pub style, but the cheese still firms up too much becoming cheese jerky. Crust was nice and flakey, but I would have wanted more flavor from the sauce. No oil which was solid, but I’d only come back if they were on the way to wherever I was going.

Classic spot with a ton of hype lately. The vibes inside the spot were great, classic south side Chicago feel. Pizza was good, not as great as people make it out to be but worth it.

If it was cooked little longer it would be in the 8’s… really good sauce. Solid pie from good people.

Excellent crisp, sauce has great taste, cheese is good, pepperonis were barely noticeable but good, excellent overall
