What You'll Get
Though famously constructed atop the largest naturally occurring deep-dish pizza, Chicago also produces some amazing skinny pies. Take advantage of this crispier Windy City heritage with today’s Groupon. For $12, you get two fresh, gourmet, thin-crust pizzas made with seasonal ingredients at La Madia in River North (worth up to $34). Your Groupon covers pizzas for dine-in only, at either the lunch or dinner hour.
Your Groupon covers any two pizzas from La Madia's lunch and dinner menus. The crispy, wood-oven–baked pies include foodie interpretations of old favorites—like the triple pepperoni finished with white truffle oil ($14.50 for dinner, $12 lunch) or the house-made fennel sausage ($13 dinner, $11 lunch). More-adventurous pizza connoisseurs might try creations like the Taleggio ($12 dinner, $9.50 lunch), which involves grapes that have been roasted for three hours, or the bigger-than-mozzarella taste of Burrata, with wood-roasted eggplant, market tomatoes, and torn basil ($17 dinner). Each pizza comes with a recommended vino pairing from La Madia’s impressive wine collection, housed in a 13-foot glass cellar behind the bar.
This classy liquid accompaniment adds to La Madia’s relaxed, sophisticated atmosphere of modern, upholstered booths and romantically dim lighting. While most pizzerias cater more to party-boy Michelangelos, this top Chicago purveyor of delicious two-dimensional objects provides a place for sophisticates to unleash their inner Leonardo and Donatello, without being required to play through that annoying dam level.
It’s somewhat rare to find an inexpensive meal in downtown Chicago and not find any major drawbacks. Our server was down to earth and made some good recommendations. We had the fennel sausage pizza and it was somewhat small but tasty. – bphilipny, Citysearch
Normally after eating pizza, you feel heavy and bogged down with grease, but this pizza was refreshingly light and perfect for lunch for two! I will absolutely be back again and again!...Nice atmosphere as well, very welcoming with the beautiful bar and cozy fireplace. – Linsea, Citysearch
Actually, you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu (hence the 5-star review), but there are a few salads/pizza that are extra tasty. – Andrea R., Yelp
