This family-owned eatery has been serving up Italian specialties in North Center since 1950, and its newer Edgewater location offers the same menu of signature thin-crust, pan and stuffed pies that made the original a go-to for Chicago pizza lovers. Open for lunch and dinner and located just outside Loyola's campus, the menu features dishes like hot or cold sandwiches, salads, breads, soups and, of course, pizza. Toppings incude favorites like green peppers, olives, sausage and pepperoni, and there's options by the slice as well. Unlike the Western Avenue location, there's no booze, but a line-up of milkshakes, coffee, tea and smoothies.
