Chicago's. Est. 1947. Premium Pizzeria. Family with a dream: Our family came from Italy in the 1920's with a dream to connect people over pizza. In 1947, when they served square-cut, snack-sized pizza at our southside Chicago tavern, across from local baseball fields, the neighborhood was thrilled - it was love at first bite. The family dream came true and the world of pizza was never the same. Years later, our same family recipe from 1947 is making its way throughout the country and we couldn't be more proud. Staying true to our roots, we hope you open up a cold rink and enjoy your pie while watching the ball game with your family. Our grandparents making pizza in 1974.
