Having recently returned to the Chicago Metro area, one of my first goals was to gorge myself on some of the (usually) amazing pizza. I ordered both the ""Bianca"", Roberto's signature white pizza topped with garlic, artichoke and olive oil and a traditional red pizza with cheese and sausage.\n\nThe Bianca was an utter disappointment. While Roberto's definitely did not skimp on the artichoke, (which I appreciated) there was no noticeable or even visible garlic on the pie...and the olive oil? Are we rationing? It was so dry, it literally sucked the moisture out of my mouth. A little of the missing garlic might have helped to generate the saliva necessary to swallow it.\n\nThe only saving grace was the more mundane red pizza which, while simple, had the robust and well-rounded flavor that one would expect from a region and a restaurant famous for its pies.\n\nI've been an ardent fan of Roberto's in the distant past and it saddens me to give them a shabby review...but they earned it. I doubt they could have survived in such a pizza-intensive area so long by relaxing their once-noble standards, so I'm almost hoping there was some odd problem...maybe it was a bad night, maybe it was a new employee, maybe there *is* an unknown shortage in the olive oil and garlic markets...but I will give them another shot and hopefully a better review in the near future.

First of all, a pizza shouldnt cost like 30 bucks. Second of all, it was the worst pizza Ive ever had. But the worst thing was that the people there were so unbelieveably rude that we'll never be back. There are plenty of other restaurants that we can go to that dont treat their customers disrespectfully.

Pros: None I can think of

Cons: Everything else

This place is the best. Period. Everything on the menu is bound to satisfy, but their pizza is the crown jewel. Being a Chicago native, I have tasted lots of pizza, and this is THE place to go if you want thin crust. Tip: Order the ""double dough"" Roberto's Special.

Now THIS is what pizza is supposed to taste like! The ingredients are absolutely fresh and they are plentiful. There is no skimping here. The taste of this pizza and other items such as lasagna, etc. are out of this world. I wish I had Roberto's Pizza by me. When I'm out that way I order several and ask them to freeze the pies and it's absolutely no problem for them.

Many years ago this was a very small store but they were always busy. Lines were often out the door! Roberto's Pizza grew and they took over the space next to them to make a dining room. This was NOT a "greasy spoon" type of place. Classy but nothing like black tie.

I would take Roberto's pizza over ANY pizza in the country -- and I am a pizza LOVER. ~~~~ The prices are excellent too.

PROS: Best Pizza Ever
CONS: none
