L'italiano's Chicago Pizzeria & Italian Ristorante
Exposed wooden archwork forms a canopy over guests as they settle into black booths with checkerboard tablecloths. Walls of bare brick add to the rustic charm of L'italiano's dining room, which pays homage to the home of its signature deep-dish and stuffed pies with plentiful pictures of Chicago and large statues of the Blues Brothers.
Though the cheerful ambiance, flat-screen TVs, and music draw patrons into L'italiano's, the chefs' hearty, Chicago–style pizzas give them reason to linger over a dessert of lactase supplements. The cheesy disks share the spotlight with Italian pastas, gourmet sandwiches, and the deep-dish's gangly cousin, the thin-crust pizza.
