    Pizzeria Uno: Pizzaaaaa!

    Pizza Uno

    It seems to get very busy, and when we were there we had to queue for about 10min. BUT the food really is great and the service is amusing too. But be warned the drinks are a bit pricey...

    Favorite Dish: Deep dish pizza of course....
    Though their salads and pasta looks fab as well.

    Pizzeria Uno/Pizzeria Due: Nation's first deep-dish pizza parlor

    Legendary Pizzaria Uno

    I had the modestly priced quick pizza lunch. The food wasn't spectacular or anything, but it's a cool spot and is historic for pizza lovers.

    Favorite Dish: Uhm... the burgers... just kidding. Gotta get a fattening meat-filled deep-dish pizza or don't go here.

    Pizzeria Uno

    This is the place where in(famous) Chicago style deep dish pizza was invented. I am thin crust pizza addict but have to admit that the pizza they serve is really delicious. Average waiting time is about 45 min. Medium size should be more than enough for two.

    I know, it's now a chain of Pizza Restaurants.... but it had to start somewhere, and that was here in Chicago in 1943.

    It was so popular, they soon opened "Pizzaria Duo" just two blocks away.

    Favorite Dish: Duh

    Great Pizza! Great Pizza, and some Great Pizza.

    Pizzeria Uno and Due: Deep Dish Pizza!

    by Bela_LUng Written May 24, 2004

    Pizzeria Uno and Due, both on North Wabash Street are seperated by 1 block between Ohio and Ontario street.

    Here you can get a deep dish pizza that will fill your stomach up without busting your budget. The pizza's are big so keep that in mind when ordering. A large pizza was only half eaten by 3 of us. You have to order your pizza at the door before you are seated since it can take up to 40 minutes to prepare and cook a deep dish pizza. It's a treat you must try at least once while in Chicago, and why not here at this old style pizza joint where the deep dish pizza was invented!

    There is seating outside and I would suggest that over the rathe cramped indoor seating.

    The original and some of the best Chicago-style deep dish pizza. They don't take reservations so expect a wait. But you order your pizza when you put your name in (since deep dish takes about 40 minutes to make) and it's usually ready soon after you're seated.

    Pizzeria Uno: My favorite pizzas-deep dish part II

    by Dabs Updated May 5, 2004

    Pizzeria Uno

    Many folks say that Pizzeria Uno is overrated, I have been eating there for years and have never had a disappointing pizza. The specialty at Pizzeria Uno and their related restaurant Pizzeria Due is deep dish pizza.

    I always order my pizza from Uno's from the Merrillville location (or Crestwood) so I haven't been in the Chicago location for years. It does get quite crowded so if you are staying at a downtown hotel and don't want to endure the long wait you can order for pickup or delivery and take it back to your hotel.

    Favorite Dish: The Chicago Classic pizza is the only one I ever order. It's a deep dish pizza topped with fresh tomatoes and sausage on a buttery crust, this particular pizza is my current favorite!

    Pizzeria Uno: Beware fellow Italians...

    It was here that the famous deep dish pizza was born back in 1943. Since then it has been clogging up arteries and adding inches to people's waistline. If you want to have a truly Chicago experience you can go downtown and eat here.

    Favorite Dish: I have never eaten here. Me and a friend tried to get a table here but it was too crowded. Instead of waiting for a table we went over to Big Bowl down the street.

    Pizzeria Due: World's Best Pizza!!

    Pizzeria Due is Chicago pizza at its best--deep dish, of course. This beats Giordano's, Nancy's, and every other pizzeria in the city. This store is right downtown is the original store, but it's branched out across the country now. Still, there's no place like home for the authentic material! Due's bigger sister Pizzeria Uno is next door, and it's the exact same menu, but not as fun, in my opinion.

    Casual but not boring, with a very 'Chicago' feel to the decor. Although the restuarant is called a 'Bar and Grill,' it's family-friendly--although liquor is served, the bar is separate from the restaurant and attracts the more serious drinkers. But be ready for a wait on most nights--they don't take reservations!

    Favorite Dish: The deep dish pizza with spinach and mushrooms is my favorite!

    Pizzaria Uno: Like a party in your mouth

    by aemaya Updated Apr 2, 2003
    hurry up and wait - but worth it

    The pizza is incredible. Semi long wait, but worth it. Old school "Mom" type waitress blended well with atmosphere. If they tell you that you have to order pizza at the door (one hour wait), scoot past them to a table.

    Watch out for the bar chairs. They like to trip people. We had several people come dangerously close to wiping out our entire table. We walked wide around the bar and made it out gracefully.

    Favorite Dish: Spinach and mushroom individual pie.

    price a piece includes a few beers. :)

    Pizzeria Due: Pizzeria Due not Uno!

    When the original Pizzeria Uno was built and became so popular they decided to expand. But instead of making their restaurant bigger than bought property one block away and open Pizzeria Due. In all honesty, I did not eat at Uno's in Chicago. I could eat at Uno's in almost any city but could only eat at Due in Chicago.

    Although you can find Uno's all over the United States now, the original is in Chicago. So although I have been to Uno's many times at my home in Baltimore, I still had to check out the original in Chicago.

    Favorite Dish: Why, Deep Dish Chicago Pizza, of course.

    Very little and cosy restaurant. Special atmosphere: small space, modest light, appropriate music, convenient location.
    Good feature: it's open till 2 a.m.
    Very nice pizzeria-made draft amber beer.
    You have to wait about an hour for your pizza, but suffering will be overwhelmed by 'volupte' while eating.
    Note: since it's a small restaurant, they are full very often. My recommendation: come there either late or during the day otherwise you'll have to wait.

    Favorite Dish: Deep-dish pizza Uno, of course. It's awesome! As we say in Russian: 'you'll lick your fingers after that'. It's something particular, especially for rizza lovers. If you think that you already know yor favourite kind of pizza, go there and try it, and I'm sure, you'll change your opinion. Living example: my girlfriend used to hate pizza in general before. Well, she changed her mind after the first bite...
    Briefly: deep pan, vegetables, a thick layer of tomatos and an enormous layer of cheese (excellent cheese).

    One of Chicago's claims to fame is that it is the home of deepdish pizza. It all started back during the Second World War, when Ike Sewell decided to open a restaurant serving authentic recipes from Italy using the finest ingredients. Pizzeria Uno has since expanded across the street to Pizzeria Due. And it has also become something of a tourist attraction: be prepared to wait. And don't, unfortunately, expect the kind of cheerful service that you would get back in old Naples.
