We ate here last weekend and had a great experience. The food was great. Pizza Gustosa is my favorite. The rice balls were enjoyed by all and the pear salad is to die for. Our server was friendly and attentive. She recommended several dishes and my friends ordered the ravioli special, outstanding is all they could say. Definately try this place, you won't be disappointed

This used to be my absolute favorite place in the city to go for thin crust brick oven pizza. I've gone there the past 4 or 5 years. I went there on 4/5/2010 and I sadly say it will be my last visit. Ownership has changed and it's had a severely negative impact on the service and the food. Our server was extremely rude and unprofessional. We asked for a pizza that we had frequently in the past and wasn't on the current menu. She said she didn't know if the kitchen would make it and made no offer to go ask them. We had to ask her to go find out. She was not polite in any way shape and form. We ordered pizza and pasta dishes that should have been ready quickly max expected wait 10-15 minutes. It was Monday at 6 p.m. and place was nearly empty. We waited over an hour for our food. When it arrived one of the pizzas was prepared wrong and had to be returned. We spoke with Manager and he was just like "whatever." Didn't even apologize for the problem The other pizza that we got was not good at all and in the past it has been one of our favorites. I am so disappointed because I absolutely loved this place. Unfortunately the new ownership has not maintained the same standard of quality. The food was not good and the waitstaff was worse. Don't bother. The reputation they had before no longer exists.

This is a very good place to eat if you are looking for pizza or pasta. It is good for all ages- kids love looking at the real wood-burning pizza oven. Don't miss the desserts or the excellent antipasti buffet. I recommend the gnocchi. It is very, very good. All in all, this is the best place in the Lincoln Square neighborhood to get italian cuisine.

This pizza is sooo good its worth traveling from the south side for. I have been making this trek for 4yrs. This food is not Italian American . It's authentic Sicilian fare. The pizza is made a brick oven flown in from Sicily. And I tend judge Italian restaruants by their sausage pizza. If the sausage taste bad,its no go for me. The sausage pizza rocks so does the rice balls. If you like FRESH delicious food this the place for ya.

Nice looking place. Pizza was fine and not great. I would take someone there. I would not consider this to be a place to get pizza on my own which is kind of important to me. Not good enough to just get a pie to chow on. Great staff, good wines.

ok, so i'm biased since i live in lincoln square, but felt compelled to review this place since i was so surprised by other reviews!! pizza is SO subjective... many people say that their favorite pizza place is the "best pizza in chicago" even though their favorite pizza is thick crusted, mass-produced stuff for tourists. i can't decide what you like, but if you've traveled a bit, (ie to europe) and know what italian-style, thin-crust pizza should resemble, then you really and going to like pizza d.o.c. before i go on, i MUST comment on maria's comment about the price... what on EARTH are you talking about? you said that there were 6 of you and you spend $250 just on pizza? i'm sorry , but that is truly impossible... pizza doc has about 20 pizzas to choose from and, if memory serves, the average price of those pizzas are about $13... let's say that you ordered pizzas that were 20 bucks... even if each person i your party ate a whole pizza by his or herself (which i usually do), that would be $120 spend on pizza.. perhaps you're confusing food prices with its distance cousin... alcohol??? anyway people, if you're on the fence, give it a try. i do not think you will be disappointed. (for you adventurous eaters out there, get the gustoso pizza... prosciutto, asparagus, and that famous under-cooked egg on top! remember that trip to rome or paris? you know about that egg on your pizza!) enjoy!!

I was told by a few people that this place was great so I decided to try it out. I was very disappointed that the prices were so high. There were 6 of us and spent over $250 on pizza!! Thats rediculous. The service was poor as well. The pizza was actually good though but everything else was subpar. The pricing, the service and atmosphere need major improvement.
