The absolute best pizza.Been going there since the late 60's.They used to have a spin-off of one in Mokena,Il.but they closed.They didn't even come close to the original one.There are other good ones around too,(Aurileos in Homewood,Pizza Pete in Orland Park,Beggars if you like heavy).This is still my favorite.Just wish they were in the south burbs.

A slightly different cheese blend puts V&N a touch above many other pizzerias. You get a good deal on a good pizza. If you don't want to drive into the city and face traffic, opt for the other location further west.

I grew up three blocks from Nick&Vito and back in the late 60's and early 70's there were alot of good pizza stores in that neighborhood.I remember just a few of the names,Genos on 79th,Waldo Clooneys and another Italian place on Pulaski and a real good one on Kedzie that i can remember. So,they all quit for one reason or another but Vito&Nicks is still grinding away. Probably not the BEST pizza but pretty damn good. Get a pitcher of Old Style,watch a Sox Game and enjoy what I took for granted as a kid before i moved to Idaho

Pros: Good Thin Crust Pizza, South side Atmosphere

Cons: Im sure there are some?

I'll start by saying the decision to go to this restaurant is because it was featured on Diners Drive In and Dives on the food network.

The service provided by this place was worse than slow. Our total dining experience lasted 2 and 15 minutes. The amount of time it took for our waitress to do anything was excessive, with the exception of providing our check. The most agitating thing is that a couple that arrived 5 minutes after us received their food and drinks at least 15 minutes before us.

The pizza was not bad. I would much rather have a Beggar's or Home Run Inn Pizza.

I definitley would not recommend this place unless you have lots of time and patience.

Cons: Service was slow

Visited the restaurant today after hearing so many good things about your pizza. I was really disappointed. The service was awful.

The place was 2/3 of the way full and there was 3 servers and we had the slowest server of the bunch. I had to find her to come and service our table. Once we finally ordered, I waited 40 min for jalapeno poppers and an additional 30 min (a total of 1 hour 10 min) for the pizza. While other tables who arrived later than us, with different servers were getting there food faster. Once the pizza arrived it was really browned, Dark brown almost black. I'm not sure if this is how it always comes but it was a little too cooked for my liking. The pizza was fine though.

I was a server for 5 years so I try to be as forgiving as possible but the service really tested my patience. I will not be returning, I really wanted to like the place but the the horrendous service really ruined my dining experience.

First thing you need to know is that the place was practically empty of customers when we arrived, and this was a Saturday at nearly noon. The interior is early dumpster. The brunette behind the bar had no control over her LOUD MOUTH. The waitress was hard put to remember our order. I had to tell her three times that I wanted cream with my coffee. We waited over an hour for our two small pizzas. Finally we had to ask our waitress to check it out, which took her 15 minutes to get around to doing. When she finally asked the cook and came back to us, she explained that they had a large take-out order that they were working on and that our pizza wouldn't be ready for another 15-20 minutes! That was the last straw. We told her it would have been good to know that 45 minutes ago. We asked for the check and she said "Can't you wait another 15 minutes?". Would YOU wait ANOTHER 15 minutes? Again, we asked for the check for our drinks. It was nice of her to waive the drinks, but we'll NEVER, EVER be back to that DDD... DUMP AGAIN!

Got to the ORIGINAL location about 6pm. Two big parties. This place must be popular. I have read about Vito and Nick and have ate a Vito and Nicks 2 but that is for another review that I need to do. Actually drove by one and am staying across from the other one over by Harlem.

But on to the review, ordered a small sausage and cheese. extra sauce, lite on the cheese as I hate the cracks filling up as I think when you cut it that means there is too much. I also said cooked well.
Got it in about 15 minutes.
Grabbed a piece as got no silverware and took a bite. The reviewer before was correct as my piece was soggy and so was the whole pie. JUst folded over in my fingers. It was also luke warm as I ate that piece and did not even burn my mouth. (it was already hurting from a small pizza from the Home Run Inn on 31st that I burnt it on at 4pm but another review for that there)
I ate not quite half as was getting full and the waitress came over and asked how it was. Told her it was pretty soggy for a thin and crispy and just luke warm She took it back and put it in the oven for a little longer and brought it out in a box as I said I was ready to go when she took it. I tried another piece and still the same. SOGGY
I watched some others around me eat and there were a couple plain clothes cops come in and I watched them eat and each piece they picked up limped on them also . Same with another table.
I try to give the benifit of the doubt.. Maybe next time will or could be different. if there is a next time as too many place to try in Cicagoland when I do not live here.
I did not care for the sauce as seemed blah as did the sausage. But the taste together was not unedible by no means.
Just, after reading all the great comments I expected more. Especially after I had a great pizza at the Vito and nicks ll store.
It just did not live up to what everyone was saying. Also they only take cash!

Pros: it is very thin. If it was done longer it would be an excellent pizza.

Cons: Soggy, soggy soggy. not hot like it just came out of the oven.

.

To the reviewer who had the soggy pizza: You must just have had bad luck. I've been going to Vito & Nick's for years, and I have never experienced a soggy pizza or anything other than a superior product.

Vito & Nick's is the quintessential Chicago-style cracker crust pizza. Crispy crust, nice balance of toppings, clean-tasting sauce that is not overly sweet (like Palermo's "sugar sauce.") I generally order mine well done to get a little extra char on it. Other pizza joints worth visiting for their cracker crust: Aurelio's in Homewood, Marie's, Pat's, and perhaps Candlelite. But, for me, Vito & Nick's is in a class by itself.

I looked up Chicago pizza on Citysearch last night and found many people raving about Vito & Nick's. I had Vito & Nick's pizza last night and what a disappointment. First of all twenty bucks for a 16" sausage and cheese and the amount of sausage was nothing to brag about. The sauce was nothing special since there was so little on it. And I was expecting this nice, thin, crisp crust the way everyone was raving about. Instead, it was this soggy slop. Luckily they cut the pizza in tiny pieces, like appetizer size, so I could finish each piece in a couple bites which kept me from having to fold every piece in half like a tiny pizza gyro just to hold it. While waiting for my order to come out of the oven I watched them make a few sausage pizzes. Here's this kid pinching off miniscule pieces of sausage and putting it on the pizza. I kept thinking to myself "geez, could you spare it? You suppose you could make the pieces a little smaller?"

For a few bucks more I could have had an 18" Palermo's pizza with a nice thin crust, superb sauce and a lot more sausage, better tasting too. Now that's a pizza with some serious ingredients. When you pick it up you know it's a good hearty meal with plenty of good stuff on it. If I was on the far southside I'd recommend Italian Villa in Orland Park. Great tasting sausage and plenty of it. Thin crust. Delicious sauce. And reasonably priced. Papa Luigi's (107th & Ridgeland Ave in Chicago Ridge) is better than V&N's plus they deliver. Which reminds me when I asked if they delivered they looked at me like "are you freakin' kidding?"

I will not, repeat, WILL NOT be going back to Vito & Nick's. Strongly suggest you don't either. Anyone who stated this was the best pizza in Chicago has either never had good pizza or compares this to Dominos or Pizza Butt. Admittedly, it did beat those two brands but not by much.

Pros: It beats Dominos or Pizza Butt.

They are family owned and very nice and welcoming. They have very good flat crust pizza. Cheap and fast with a good taste. roughly $20 feeds about 4 people with a good pizza.

The first time I tried Vito & Nick's Pizza was about twenty years ago when I lived in Chicago and it was great! Now that I live here in the burbs, I still think this is one of the better pizzas in town. I'd rate this as the third best with Aurelio's in Homewood #1 and Fox's in Orland Park #2.

For years our family has enjoyed the great pizza at Vito & Nick's. We now live in Erie, CO. & cannot find ANY pizza out here that can measure up to the authentic & homemade pizza we had within a few minutes drive from our house in Evergreen Park. When we visit relatives, V&N is our first stop. For those of you that can partake of this great pizza, we envy you!

Pros: Terrific food & servers are super! Very accomodating to families.

Cons: None really -- Wish Vito & Nick's pizza locations were out here in Colorado.

My grandparents were the very first customers at Vito and Nick's way back when. My father and aunts grew up on this pizza. THIS is the real Chicago-style pizza - not that over-doughy, gooey bread with bland sauce that passes for pizza.

If you don't live in the area, do yourself a flavor (pun intended) and order their frozen pizza online and have them shipped to your home. When eating it, you may not be in 7th Heaven as if you were getting it directly fresh from Nick's, but it's at least 6th Heaven!

All those who prefer thick crust pizza have never eaten at Vito and Nick's or they are seriously deranged - and I mean that in the nicest possible way. ;-)

This is the way pizza is supposed to taste. Except no substitutes. Life is too short.

Cons: for me, the only con is that I don't live closer to it!

Well I must say that Vito and Nix is good pizza but I certainly never thought it would rate in one of the best Chicago Pizzas. I am a spokeman on this manner and am a native Chicago Southsider. And anyone that has got to put in their reviews that New York is the Pizza Capital in the Universe, "Go Back to New York!" I think the reason that it is here however is that good south side pizza might be dwindling and Vito and Nix just stood the test of time and is still there. And no one that live's in this area has a choice. Anyone living on Kolmar would certainly order this pizza over Dominoes being it is a real pizza but if you are coming to Chicago and want to taste what Chicago pizza is all about, I would not go out of my way to come to Vito and Nix. Why? It is just your average Chicago Southside pizza that has been copied so much through the years it really has no taste of it's own. Nothing distinct and the bathroom smells. And is is not like a bite is going to send you off in the stratosphere. I would not want a New Yorker to come to Chicago and eat here, it might ruin our reputation as to what Chicago pizza is all about. This pizza is nothing like the long gone great places of the Likes's of Chesdans and Bo's pizza and it is just your average Chicago Pizza and if you want a pizza that represents what Chicago pizza is, this is not the place. Move on to Home Run inn or Giordano's . There is good pizza and bad pizza in Chicago Just like New York and anyone thats says New York is the Pizza Capital in the universe has some homework to do but don't start at Vito and Nix, that was your first mistake.

You want thin crust? Don't you dare go anywhere else. There ain't another pizza joint that knows how to do it like Vito & Nick's Been goin there for 35 years and it's still the same, so is the furniture, but who cares it's a pizza joint?
South Pulaski won't be the same if it ever closes. I read about the original owner, who died about 3 years ago, Nick. He may be dead, but his pizza isn't and will live on forever. This is still a family owned establishment and must have the recipe embedded in their heads.
They recently opened a new restaurant in Lemont @ the old Lemont Lanes on State St. If you like updated ambiance, and the same pizza for the best price inthe area, go there! If you're looking for banquet facilities from the same cook, go there. I just go there for the pizza..............It's still the best Nick, wherever you are!

If you're looking for cons, it ain't in this review! They do no wrong here, in Chicago or Lemont!

Vito and Nick's restraurant at 8435 S. Pulaski Ave is without doubt the best pizza in this city, I dare anyone is say different, this isn't a franchise establishment like Gino's or Lou Malnanis, or any place which sprecializes in deep dish pizza. I am originally from New York, THE pizza capital in the universe, and this my friends is about as close to perfection as it gets. I absolutely hate deep dish, it's pure garbage ok, stick a loaf of bread in the oven, throw a bunch of cheese and tomato sauce and you have deep dish, not in this place! It emphasizes about flavor than substance. Remember it is not about quantity, but quality. I highly suggest the pepperoni and green pepper dish, my favorite. the only drawback is that the bar atmosphere is not exactly favorable to high quality sophisticated dining, but if you are looking for a quality pizza and a few good beers to spend some time, no better place. The others are pretenders, take it from me, I have been to these places, and I will only go to Vito and Nick's.

I was brought here by my aunt and uncle who swore this was the best and they were right. I live in the northwest suburbs and will drive all that way just for their pizza!! I love everything about vitos & nicks and everyone I've ever brought falls in love with this place!

Yes the pizza is great. But the bathrooms have not been updated or in the case of the men's john not cleaned since Eisenhower was president. When the door to the men's john opens, the smell of air freshener and filth can knock you out.

Since the cooks are all men and are using the same smelly john, I can no longer eat there.

I just "had" to try this pizza my friends were going on and on about. We tried two pizzas - Sausage, Mushroom and Onion & Pep. Both pizza's were burnt on the edges with spots in the center that were burnt - this, of COURSE, made it bitter. The rest of the pizza's were bland, bland, bland. The only thing I really tasted was the mushrooms that were very good, thick and fresh. That was the ONLY good thing about the 2 I tried. We also got some bread before the meal that was so rock hard I could have used it to balance the wobbly table with. DO NOT GO!

Ahh!! I was so excited to see that Vito and Nick's was on the "best of" list!!! I live in Denver now and can't find a pizza to save my life!! I've been going to Vito and Nicks since I was a kid and nothing compares to it! We stop in everytime we are in town and order two pies. One to eat there and one to bring on the plane home!! Mmmm I can just smell it!!

Pros: price, taste

Cons: no credit cards, long waits

A buddy brought me to Vito & Nick's around 5 years ago. We were out bowling & needed some food. Being a Vito & Nick's virgin ... I thought my friend was crazy when he ordered the largest size pizza for just the two of us. He said just wait ... and order another beer.

Anyhow - the pizza arrived & it smelled fantastic! I went for a piece and as I lifted it toward my mouth I was shocked at how thin it was. I sunk my teeth in - "crunch" went the crust & "WOW!" went my tastebuds. It was so delicious & thin that we had 4 pieces left, which I saved to bring home for my wife. Needless to say, she loved it & we now go there as often as possible.

Vito and Nick's is the place I always go to when I am visiting Chicago. They have the best thin crust pizza with plenty of toppings to fill it. Those fast pizza places will never compare. Don't mind paying for a pizza that has something on it. This is truly a meal. And their Italian Beef is pretty good also.
Those who think that the thick crust pizza is the thing, just don't really know what true Chicago pizza is. They need to try Vito and Nick's. They also have a great place in Orland Park that serves the same food.
I came from Chicago and thin crust pizza was always the pizza I ever got. Theirs is the best.

As a Sarasota/Bradenton, Florida resident for over 15 years, originally from Southwest Chicago (85th & Kenneth) ...My mouth waters for a real pizza... We used to call it Nick & Vito's .....The best pizza I've ever had!!!!

This is Chicago pizza and if the downtown yuppies don't know about it Vito and Nicks is better off.....Chicago pizza is thin ladies and gentlemen contrary to what you have heard, and vito & nick's is the best. You actually eat pizza not bread or dough.The service the decor all go hand in hand with the product it is real chicago and its nice to see a place stick around for years even after a neighborhood falls apart around it. Best Pizza hands down in the U.S.

This is the best super-thin pizza on planet earth.

My father always made the drive to pick-up Vito & Nick's pizza instead of getting a lesser pizza delivered.

The decor is 50's cornball all the way and service can get slow, but the pizza is truly a delight.

After moving back from the San Francisco Bay Area (do they even know true pizza?) I had to get a Nick and Vito's sausage and mushroom.

Keep up the great Pizza!

Pros: Thin Crust, Good Value, Excellent toppings

Cons: Very Crowded

This is simply THE best spot for thin-crust pizza in Chicago, and by unspoken tacit agreement, the locals don't talk about it to tourists or downtown yuppies. Having been there for decades, but yet to be "discovered," the folks at Vito & Nicks and their customers like it that way. This place is a neighborhood secret, but every outsider I have ever brought there over many years becomes immediately hooked, and demands to be taken there again on their next trip to Chicago. Commercial pizza hucksters have fooled everyone into thinking Chicago is about thick or stuffed pizza, but people in the neighborhoods know real Chicago pizza is thin, and Vito & Nicks is the best of the best. Skip the "famous" tourist chain pizza places in Chicago and make the trip to 84th and Pulaski.

Pros: The real thing, Never changes, Blue-collar authentic

Cons: Far SW side of city, carpeted walls(?!), Sluggish service

I've been eating pizza at V&N since the week they opened their current location, more than 35 years ago. If you like thin crust pizza this is among the very best in Chicago. The atmosphere is about as down-to-earth as it gets, which makes it nice -- no pretense about anything -- just great pizza.

This is the BEST neighbor pizza place. It is the type of place where you go as a kid and eventually take your kids. The pizza is outstanding and the tomato bread is second to none. Great place for kids and an exceptional value.

Upon entering this local neighborhood pizzeria, you may be shocked by the decor. The walls are carpeted. Cheesy, glass-encased horse and buggies hang from the ceiling. A fiercely loyal clientele crowd in on the weekends. The super-thin crust is at its best when ordered "well done." Once you try it, you'll realize why people that have moved out of the neighborhood will find any excuse to meet up with old friends here.

My friends and I call this place "Skinny" Pizza. We hardly ever refer to it as Nick & Vito's (SORRY NICK, SORRY VITO). The Pizza is sooooo wonderfully thin and crunchy with great flavor....WE LOVE IT. We drive 45 minutes to go there. If you like thin Pizza, this is THE PLACE!

I have been going to this place since 56. In my mind, there is no other pizza. I went to grammer school, with the girl, who now owns the place.
In all those years, the taste hasn't changed, and now I wish I could have one.

Would eat here as a kid 20 years ago while visiting grandparents in nearby neighborhood. I've been back two or three times in the past 3 years while traveling on business, and I still love the place. It's really, really good thin crust pizza at a great price in a clean environment. I hope they stay in business for another 20 years.

Thin "cracker" crust, you can't stop eating it. Order an ice cold pitcher of Old Style and you're in heaven. This is a great neighborhood place - I don't understand the next 2 bad reviews - lighten up folks! The green vinyl booths, shag carpet on the walls and xmas lights add to the atmosphere. Usually filled with retired cops, firefighters and family.

Best thin crust in Chicago by far. Great atmosphere. The carpeting on the walls from the 60's makes it. The Old Style is cold and the waitresses are friendly. Check it out!!!!!

I have been going here since they opened many years ago. I travel over 30 miles for their delight. They have the thinnest and crispiest crust there is to be found. The sauce is excellent and there is just enough grease to balance the mixture. Everyone that I have taken there agrees that this is the BEST!
