This was my 3rd visit to Pizza DOC and I loved it even more. The food was fantastic, service was great and the prices were even better. My boyfriend and I both ate ( 1 appetizer, 1 pizza and 1 dessert) and had drinks for only $40. The only thing I feel needs to be changed is the seating arrangements. It's not a very large restaurant but they try to fit in as many tables as possible so you are sitting right on top of the people next to you. I heard their whole conversation. But other than that, it was fantastic. Make sure to get the Suppli as an appetizer and the Bonna Cotta for dessert. You won't be sorry!

Most Americans have never tasted authentic Italian food until they have travelled to Europe and think that the American style of pizza; or what a famous chef from Napoli called "terramotto" (earthquake) but Pizza DOC is a close to the real deal as anywhere in the world. We are so lucky to live in such a great city that has an enormous ethnic community that offers "gastronomia" selects like this "postocino" (little spot). You have not lived until you have endulged in this food!

Forget that the building is rather ugly -- go for the food! This is truly the best pizza in town. I'm not a fan on Chicago-style pizza anyhow, but this thin crust pizza will knock anyone's socks off. The ingredients are fresh, the service is good, and the tiramisui is my husband's new addiction. We have tried several pizzas and they have all been delicious. The calamari has been great--not rubbery at all, as has been reported--on the 3-4 times we're ordered it, and the bruschetta is very good also. I think the prices are terrific, and even though it's not the most ideal interior, it is still fairly snug and good for a casual bite. LOVE IT! Try it, you really won't be disappointed.

We heard of the Pizza Doc from the Check Please television show. We had the fried calamari and ours was good, crispy and not rubbery in contrast to the other reviewer. However, the pizza was not good. I ordered a sausage pizza. I love thin crusts. Even though the crust was brown on the bottom showing it was cooked, it was so soggy from all the cheese that is was like a piece of uncooked dough. We took half of it home because quite often pizza is better the second day. It did not crisp up in the toaster oven, but remained limp. There was no parmesan cheese on the table or freshly grated over any of the food - salad or entrees. We had 2 pasta dishes that were ok, but we were disappointed overall. We will not return.

This is a authentic italian family restaurant. Nothing fancy, just an authentic look, feel, and taste. The food is absolutely excellent. The service isnt the greatest, but, well, in comparison to American standards, it isnt so great in Italy either... it is relaxed. If you want Chicago's most authentic Italian eating experience, Pizza Doc is the place to go.

The pizza is delicious, but I would get carry-out. The restaurant is lacking in atmosphere, and the service wasn't great either. I would also skip the fried calamarie appetizer; it was rubbery and had a fishy smell. The waitress said she would take it off the bill, but never did. But the pizza truly is fabulous! It made all of the bad stuff worth it.
