Absolutely the BEST Chicago pizza out there. It's a comfy atmosphere right in the heart of the city. You can't go wrong with a good deep dish pizza.

I saw the line outside and thought we'd wait forever, but my boyfriend and I were seated quickly since it was only 2 people. They took our pizza order before hand (four cheese and pesto), so they could start cooking it before we sat down. The raspberry iced tea actually tasted freshly brewed, and the soup we ordered was delicious. Then we waited...and waited. We were told ours wouldn't take as long since it was just cheese, but the table next to us got theirs first. They were seated probably 20 minutes after we were. I was a little upset but not too worried. The pizza finally came, and it looked really good. The cheese and pesto sauce were awesome, but the crust wasn't what i expected. It was decent, but it wasn't anything amazing. I was a little dissapointed since I'd seen so many people walking around with boxes from that place. I thought it would be a little better. Oh well. Not a bad place to try though.

We've been going to this Chicago icon for over 35 years. It was always a must when friends were in from out of town - show them the birthplace of Chicago deep dish pizza.

Since the restaurants (Uno's & Due's) were sold, it has been a downhill spiral of increasingly inferior pizza. After taking a friend from Sweden there yesterday, I must say it is now also the grave of the former wonderful deep dish pie. The only thing that links it to its former wonder is the cardboard box for leftovers. (There were plenty!)

The pizza is dry, thinner than it used to be and considerably less cheese is used in its construction. Granted the former pie was a dieter's demise - but then you didn't eat it everyday.

We're going to have to find a new pizza place and when friend's ask about that great Chicago deep dish pizza, we'll have to answer "Sadly, it is no more."

Being a tourist, I couldn't go to Chicago and not have a deep dish pizza. My friend and I were sat immediately (it was a Monday night) and waited 25 minutes just to order our drink. We knew it was going to be a long wait. I ordered a salad that was supposed to be brought before the meal and the waitress forgot., but I couldn't ask again, because she never returned to the table after taking our order. She told us the deep dish takes 45 mins, which we were okay with, but she could have returned to see if we needed a refill or anything.

We finally got our food (not prepared the way we asked) and it was just okay - nothing to write home about. We proceeded to wait another 25 minutes to have someone clear our plates and another 15 mins for our check.

While I know that Pizzeria Due is the first Pizzeria Uno, I was disappointed to see that there was Uno stuff there. It made the experience seem like I was visiting just another chain. I was looking for the original. Next time I would go to a family owned place instead to have the experience.

We sat at the bar and grew to love the bartender Alex. He is so personable and gave us great service. He made us feel like we had been going there for years. Like it was our own home town pub. We also loved the pizza. Very good. Pizzeria Due will be our first stop the next time we are in Chicago.

We were passing by this restaurant with our kids and decided to try it. We did not have to wait long because we were early for lunch. The food was ok, good but nothing special. We did try the deep dish pizza that was supposed to something special but perhaps our taste buds have gotten better over the years.

The worst thing about this restaurant however was he service, it was terrible! Our table did not get any water (at all), it was difficult to get ahold of the waiter, the wait staff was rude and could not be troubled to get enough silverware for our table.

When my wife finally did manage to order some water (had to ask twice), they charged us $3 for a glass of tap water! Unbelievable! We have visited many restaurants but this is the first time something like this has happened. The restaurant is also not very child friendly, there is for example no children's menu and I generally got the impression they did not like having kids at the restaurant (and people usually comment us on how well our kids are behaved). Very disappointing experience. Would not go back there if you paid me.

We stayed down the street at the James and were hoping for a quick bite on Saturday night before heading back out. We thought we were early arriving at 5:30, but there was already a wait for tables. You have to order your pizza when you put your name down for a table, so be prepared (the people in line ahead of us spent a lot of time arguing about what to order). The bar was packed so we were forced to wait outside in the cold. Luckily, we were seated quickly, but the wait for our pizza was still 45 minutes one we sat down. It was authentic, hot, and tasty once it arrived! We had the sausage pizza, which has thick sausage patties and not those miserable little nuggets of meat like you get elsewhere.

We went to Pizzeria Due on a Thursday night thinking it would not be that busy, but it was. We didn't wait more than 5 minutes but the restaurant itself is set up so that the tables are really close together. Our server came and told us all about the history of the place and then took our order. He warned us that the pizza takes AT LEAST 40 minutes and he wasn't lying. It was good portions of food, a little expensive, but we'd definately go back. Just don't expect it to be super fast.

My husband and I were in Chicago this past weekend and decided to go to Pizzeria Due, having seen some great recommendations of it. We ordered our pizza - their "Uno," with veggies, sausage, and pepperoni - when we put our names in for a table.

We were seated outside about twenty minutes later. The first thing we noticed was that the sugar packets were covered in tomato sauce. The plates we were given were plastic and grungy looking. They were clean, but badly stained. I use nicer napkins in my own home than the ones we were given.

Our salad was brought promptly. As we were eating our salad, we were treated to the rather vocal displeasure of the party next to us, whose spinoccoli pizza was brought to them COLD. They left shortly thereafter.

Our pizza was brought out, and it was wet. Not a little wet - it was seriously watery. It wasn't cold, but neither was it piping hot. The crust was flavorless and bland.

As we tried to eat our pizza, the waitstaff was haphazardly "cleaning" the table that had been vacated next to us. They cleared everything and gave it a quick wipedown with a none-too-clean looking rag. While wiping, the waitstaff knocked off the pizza pan that was holding the jars of oregano, pepper flakes, cheese, sugar packets, etc. The whole thing went face down onto the ground, and the jars fell out. He simply picked up the pan, put the jars back into the pan, and put it back on the table. This horrified me.

After that, the table remained empty for several minutes, during which time a sparrow hopped around on the table, drinking from the puddles left on the table.

I ate a single piece of pizza. My normally hungry husband ate only two. Needless to say, we skipped dessert.

We also noticed that the staff was constantly offering apologies for one thing or another - cold pizza, a delay for a table, etc., etc. Skip the apologies, do some work, and bring the caiber of your food and service up to par.

A friend and I dined here on a weekday afternoon last summer. There was no wait at all. Our sever was friendly and explained the fascinating history of the restaurant. He took our order without writing it down and I was a little nervous he would forget my special request, but the pizza arrived just as I ordered, steaming hot, thick and incredibly delicious. Though the restaurant was starting to get busy when we were finishing up, they let us take our time, stay to chat and wait out a thunder storm. I would definitely eat here over Uno. The line at Uno was way too long.

Definitely a Chicago staple, the deep dish here does not disappoint! Piping hot and gooey, this pizza is some of the best around. Perfect for going out with a group of friends, catching up with family, or even a date (there is a full bar too). The wait at Due is shorter than at Uno making it a better choice. It is still a good idea to get your name in early because wait times can be steep. Worth it though!

This is a wonderful place to find good pizza, and I take my friends there when they come to town. But I have a big beef about the noise level at the restaurant, and it's not due to the patrons, it's due to the big speakers that constantly blast waiting customers' names. "SMITH PARTY OF 5!!!!" It's continuous, and it's incredibly loud, and my conversation with my friend must have been interrupted 200 times during our meal. It was very frustrating and ruined the meal. People should be able to chat during a meal. There must be better ways to summon the customers who are waiting for tables...perhaps pagers. However they do it, it's really crucial for Due's to figure out how to create a quiet, welcoming atmosphere where people can be comfortable. Tasty food is only one element of successs.

Pros: Wonderfully good deep dish pizza

Cons: The loud PA system that's unrelented, and the sometimes long waits

.

Until they did completely sell out. This pizza used to overflow over the edges of the pan, now that's deepdish! When you took out a piece the cheese would spill out into the pan and one piece was enough to make you sick because you'd be so full. The sauce was chunky and full of zing. Now the crust is like stale old crackers that you can pick up and eat like some abomination from pizza hut and what scarce cheese there is is burnt to a crisp. Before you truly needed a knife and fork or else the greasy cheese (yum) would burn your hands. My parents have been going to Due's since they were in their 20's and me since I was 3. I go to college here now and the last time my mom visited I took her there for old times. She almost cried! They ruined a place where she had such fond memories and there is no way me or my family will be going back. Neither will we recommend tourists to go there.

If you want what Due's used to be, go to Lou Malnatti's and oder deep dish with extra cheese and extra sauce. It really is sad that greed wins out over keeping a Chicago institution alive. I wonder if Daley knows what happened.....

I grew up eating Due's and have gone only for the delicious, crispy buttery crust. In the past few years they changed the crust, now it tastes like crispy on the outside, Wonder bread on the inside with no rich flavor. I think the tomatoes and cheese are the same, but they sold out to some Boston company that changed the crust. I even wrote to the company and they denied changing the recipe. It is NOT the original Chicago style pizza, and I recommend tourists visit Gino's or Lou Malnatti's for an authentic Chicago style deep dish pizza. At least they didn't sell out.

My husband and I have been going to Due's since his college days. We even went there the day we became engaged to celebrate - very Chicago of us!
I needed to comment on the idiot who had only bad things to say because the pizza was too hot - gee stuff coming out of the oven is usually hot. Plus, part of the joy of this pizza is the chunky tomatoes and sauce!!! If you want watery sauce - get a frozen pizza from the grocery store.
Anyway, back to the compliments. Due's is always consistent and the taste has been the same for the 35 years we have been going there. The place always satisfies and the pizza is the best in the country. My mouth is watering just thinking about the great tastes that await when you go to Due's (or Uno's for that matter).
There just IS no better pizza anywhere!!!

Well let me first start off by saying this is the best pizza on the planet...hands down!! I have been going here for years and needed the phone number only to stumble across the scholar who posted below me. First off who doesnt know that pizza is very hot when it comes out of the oven(Same guy who would have complained if it was a tad to cold) ?? and if not is your posting even credible ?? My 8 year old cousin cuts his pizza and lets it cool off before his first bite !! Maybe you would be more comfortable at the northside pizza oven grinder on north ave......and if the pizza is too hot there maybe you can jump across the street and pickup some sushi....maybe that will be cool enough for you !! Oh yeah about the law_suit.....maybe I can turn that into a real man of genius commercial and receive some form of payment myself....THIS PIZZA IS THE BEST IN THE CITY !!!!!

First time to Chicago and I heard this was the place to go for an authentic pie... I'll give them credit - their pizza is good... but what ruined my experience was the temperature and the fact that they clumped tomato sauce on the dough instead of spreading it smooth... so after 45 minutes of waiting the pizza finally arrived right out of the oven... and after a few bites I finally bit into a clump of sauce at what had to of been 400 degrees. My entire mouth including my tongue is burnt. The rest of my stay here in Chicago will be spent eating soft, cold foods.... Thanks Due! Maybe next time tell your guests that the pizza may be a little hot?!? Didn't a lady take McDonalds to court for millions over hot coffee?? Maybe I should seek counsel?

It is really the best pizza in the world. The crust, the sauce, the cheese... everything is in perfect proportion. It is a bit difficult to get a place, but the wait is worth it. Can't be beat.

Pizzaria Due or Uno are excellent places to have the traditional Chicago deep dish pizza experience! Bring your appetite a large pizza will feed 4 adults sufficiently! The place can get cramped and a long wait for a table but it is well worth it!

We have been going to Due's for years now. The food is great as always. The wait is still long, but worth it. The staff is always friendly from the host to the waitstaff. The two brothers that work there are a good example of fast, friendly service. Can't wait to go back.

Pizzaria Due was amazing! Our server was friendly and prompt with salads and beverages, he left a card with his name on it on the table which we thought was a nice touch! Be ready to order at the door, before you even get a table. Portions are enourmous- a medium pizza easily feeds 3 people. If you haven't done Chicago deep dish- you NEED to try Due!

Be ready to order at the door, before you even get a table. Portions are enourmous- a medium pizza easily feeds 3 people. If you haven't done Chicago deep dish- you NEED to try Due!

Pros: Amazing Pizza, Good Parking Weekends, Friendly Staff

Cons: Ordering Immediately, Tap Beer

.

During the week you might wait an hour or more for a table and on a Friday and Saturday night, much longer. But, the wait is worth it! The Aroma from the Pizza pies cooking in the Kitchen, will keep you waiting. When the speeker outside calls your name, for a table... Prepare for nothing your mouth has tasted before. Your first bite of the slice your server cuts in the pan and serves you will be a sprirituil event. You will not think of Pizza in the same way again.

It's name might say #2 but when it comes to Pizza, it's tops! Chicago is the pizza capital of the world and in my opinion, Due's is at the top of the list. I prefer their sausage and cheese deep-dish pizza. The crust is unique and won't be found anywhere else (except UNO's of course) and the toppings are generous and very tasty. Lots of great places to go for pizza but this one is my favorite. The only negative I can think of is the crowds and the wait you'll likely experience just about any day of the week at prime dining time. I'd suggest going during off hours for faster service.

My friends and I started going to Pizzaria Due (and Uno) from the western 'burbs in high school back about 1954 or so. I miss those places now as my wife and I have moved to Florida, but the primary motivating factor for going back to Chicago to visit other than visiting family, will be to luxuriate in a decent pizza or two. Yes, they have gotten overcrowded as the years passed, but think of the rewards for being patient! There's no better pizza available. Get there early!

Wow! I visited Chicago for the first time and I tried Pizzeria Due on a recommendation from friend. The pizza is fantastic. The crust is what really sets this place apart. It is unlike anything I've ever had - almost like eating pie crust, but savory instead of sweet.

Definitely try this place for pizza! It's not the cheapest pizza restaurant I've been to, but worth every penny. Expect to pay around $12-$15 per person for pizza, soft drink, tax & tip.

One thing I was really annoyed about is that the menu says you have a time limit of 1.5 hours.

Fan-freakin-tastic pizza. Whenever I have a friend visit Chitown, I send him/her on an excursion to Due's just before the return flight. They order a frozen pie to go, and stow it in the overhead compartment on the flight(it fits nicely, and poses no security risk). Upon arrival, we get that baby in the oven asap, and I'm reminded all over again what real deep-dish is all about.

I was there on a Thursday night with 4 friends. The girl who took our order in the front of the restaurant had the worst attitude and made it very obvious to everyone that she was so annoyed to be there (rolling her eyes, sighing loudly, holding her head in her hands). I expect that kind of attitude at McDonald's not at PD. They also crammed the 5 of us at a table that was way too small. I would recommend Leona's or Giordano's instead.

This IMOHO, is still the best pan/deep dish pizza in Chicago. Yes, some times the service leaves a little bit to be desired; however, when it comes to quality, it can't be beat. Unos and Dues are still the best original Chicago style pizza. This includes the Lou Malnatis, Ginos East, Giordanos, Connies, Pisanos, Baccinos, Edwardos, etc, etc. They all claim to be Chicago style pizza. These claims confuse the market. If you want the best and original, it's Unos or Dues.

Pros: Quality, taste, cost

Cons: the lines, wash rooms

The Numero Uno pizza is delicious and filling. Plenty of cheese, scrumpcious crust, mouth-watering ingredients, surrounded by splendid sauce. A small pizza (4 pieces) always seems to be enough for two, and if you can't finish... wrap! It will taste great later.

I have been eating at Pizzeria Due for over 35 years. I have tasted many pies but none of them come close to Pizzeria Due. I wish they had one in Memphis. I now live in Memphis and I have to wait to I come home to Chicago, but if I have to rate it I give it 5 stars. Pizzeria Due is Numero Uno!

Great basement bar perfect decor and the smell, fuhgaddaboutit. Oh' yeah don't forget the honkers ale. GO BEARS!!!!

This pizza is awesome, just as its predecessor Pizzeria Uno. The balance of ingredients is absolutely perfect. The setting is better than Uno, in my opinion. Service was great, and food was the best. I highly recommend it!!

Simply the Very Finest Pizza in all of Chicago. I've had pizza at all of the others, BUT....from Due's homade sauce to their huge homemade Sausage patty on top....and the Cheese is Magnifique!

Dues, the best kept pizza secret sister of Unos, is in a class by itself. From the quality of the product to the first class presentation and professionalism of the servers, Dues is a must stop on any tourist schedule.

This is what Chicago pizza is all about. The adage of "often imitated, but never duplicated" applies here. The lines are long, but well worth the wait. Get there early and experience truly the best pizza anywhere. This stuff is what Chicago style is all about.

My parents have been taking me here since I was three. Now that I'm 25 I still believe that this is the best pizza in town. This place is always packed and for good reason, they use absolutely the very best ingredients, and my favorite the crust is always thick and crunchy. If you are looking for the very best Chicago style pizza Due is the place to go

With its convenient downtown location, this place draws a lot of tourists and lunchtime business people. The deep-dish pie with its hefty, buttery crust and zesty sauce is delicious. And if you're in a lunchtime rush, the express lunch is the way to go--regular-size pies take at least half an hour to cook. Grab a table under an umbrella on the comfortable patio during the summertime.

This is a good place to go if you are a beginner to Chicago-style pizza. It's close to Pizzeria Uno, so it also makes for a good backup idea. I had the deep dish and found the crust pretty good. I didn't find it to be particularly standout pizza, but it won't let you down.

Just came back from lunch at Due. It was surprisingly not crowded (though I understand it gets pretty packed), and our service was good. The pizza did take a bit, but other members of my party ordered salads, so it seemed like the regular rhythm of a meal. The portions were of good size, and the deep dish house pizza was as good as any I've had -- fresh, fresh ingredients.

This place is packed with out-of-towners, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but locals don't like it when they get trated like tourists ("We have Goose Island beer -- it's a local micro-brew," says the water). But the pizza is top-notch, so don't worry about they think you're a tourist or not -- fresh toppings and not overloaded with cheese, while the sauce is not much more than smashed tomatoes. Salads are rather plain and not worth the effort.

Back in 1943, the business of serving pizza took a giant leap forward. Not surprisingly, just about every celebrity---from rock star to movie star to Brenda Starr (well, maybe her creator)---stops here, or at its sib a block away, when…
