I really like Bacino's pizza and their servers are great as well. Their thin-crust is okay, but I definitely prefer the stuffed crust. What can I say? I'm a true Chicagoan.

As Chicago pizza goes, Lou Malnati's is my favorite, with Giordano's and Gino's East coming in close behind. I would rate Bacino's as the next level below that, very good but not quite on the top tier. There is plenty of gooey mozzarella, but the crust and other toppings aren't quite as good as the best Chicago has to offer.

Pros: Stuffed Spinach Pizza

.

If this is your first time, definitely try the Spinach Supreme Chicago-style stuffed pizza. Even if you're not a huge fan of spinach, the gooeyness of the cheese blended with some spinach and fresh pizza sauce will leave you wanting more. Eating this stuffed pizza ALMOST feels like you're doing something healthy for your body without sacrificing any of the taste.

I am writing this in the heat of the moment. I've gone to Bacino's intermittently over the last decade, and generally been satisfied. However, last night, the waitress put our order for a stuffed pizza in as a thin-crust pizza, and then profusely "apologized" when she brought out the thin crust pizza, and it was clearly overcooked -- she was amazed that she got it wrong, since she clearly remembered what our order was. The crust was much too dry and flat, the spinach on top was slightly burned, et cetera. We did our best to try to eat it -- which was, of course, not even the pizza we ordered -- but it tasted like a baked saltine with cheese and tomato paste on it. When we asked her to take it back because it was inedible, rather than apologizing for wasting our time, she made a big deal about how she was only going to charge us for the root beers we had ordered (but which had not been drunk yet, because we were waiting for the pizza). As we left, the manager snarkily said, "I'm sorry that you didn't like the pizza", to which I explained that he was welcome to try the overcooked pizza we were given and that I'd be very surprised if he didn't find it equally inedible. He insisted that he has their pizza "all the time", and treated me as though I were a little bit stupid or slightly crazy. Anyway, I've never had a bad stuffed pizza there, and -- over the years -- I've had some perfectly okay thin-crust pizza there -- but the management philosophy that gets an order wrong, and just shoos unsatisfied customers away is not what I would expect in a recession, and it is just too risky to waste money on such an unsatisfactory experience. Better off walking a bit and going to Brick's.

Pros: their stuffed pizza can be delicious

Cons: Incompetent self indulgent waiter, snarky manager

.

This is my favorite Chicago-style pizza! It is way better than the typical Chicago favorites, such as Giordano's, Unos, etc. No lines, great food/beer, good prices!

Pros: Food, beer, price, service

Cons: Ambience

.

This is a good place for pizza especially for parents staying at Childrens Memorial as they deliver. If you need to escape the hospital its not a far walk either. The pizza is delicious and you can get a pitcher of beer to relax your nerves.

Pros: fast service, reasonably priced, nice selection

Cons: parking sucks

.

You feel a little better about yourself after eating Bacino's than you would at Gino's East, Unos and co. because they bake their pizzas. Not greasy, not crowded and super-good. They have more varieties of beer than pizza, which is a good thing depending on your style.
