This Is How We Eat: Pizano’s Pizza and Pasta

Welcome to another installment of the very tasty segment that we like to call This Is How We Eat. If you are unfamiliar with what’s going on here, please refer to our previous articles for more information. This is the conclusion of my two part series of places I visited while being on vacation in Chicago Illinois. As tasty as a hot dog can be, what makes a trip to this city truly special is a slice of some authentic Deep Dish Pizza. Today we are going to take a look at a place that quite possibly has the best version of it ever made, Pizano’s Pizza and Pasta.

Established in 1991, this authentic Italian restaurant offers some of the most hearty food to fill your stomach to the brim, and then some. Whether it’s chicken parmesan or pasta, or a meatball sub and fries, or the most delicious pizza ever made, almost anybody with a hearty appetite will find something to enjoy here. After a long walk on our first day in the city, my girlfriend and I decided to stop by here for a very obvious reason, to get something to eat, and what we encountered upon entering this place was nothing short of extraordinary. We ordered a couple of soft drinks to start things off, and then decided to split a medium deep dish pizza together. After our meal was over, we wished that the two of us had ordered the small one instead, because we still had a couple of slices left over, and had no fridge to put them into (but we finished them later anyway).

The only real problem that the two of us had with this place was that it was extremely crowded, which in turn prevented us from having some quiet time together, which is kind of ironic because the setting itself was actually pretty intimate. Waiting thirty minutes to eat was kind of annoying too, but in all honesty, it was worth it in the end. These are only minor issues though, because the pricing on the menu was pretty decent to say the least. Our entire meal, soft drinks included, only cost about $20 altogether, so if you are in a rush, and need to fill up your stomach as fast as possible, be sure to stop by here to do just that.

If any of you ever get a chance to check out Chicago, be sure to stop by and have an incredible Deep Dish Pizza at Pizano’s Pizza and Pasta, you’ll be glad you did.
