Great variety of pizza and pastas. You know it is good because it is always busy and a favorite of locals. Definitely worth trying!

Ferentino's has consistently good deep dish pizza that our family often uses for carry-out or delivery. Their coupons make it even a better deal!

I love this place, but there a couple of things that give me pause. (1) Toppings seem to make the bill inflate. Other places and pizza chains can deliver similar product for much less. My typical bill for two pizzas is about $42, and we don't go crazy. (2) There is an odor to the pizzas that I can't place.... More

Someone just asked what our favorite Chicago deep dish pizza is; Giordano's, Uno's, Gino's? All great, but none as good as Ferentino's in Lake Forest. Really.

Ferentino's offers a full menu and is open for lunch and dinner, but the single slice pizza offering takes the prize. There are several varieties offered for dine-in or carry-out. It's hard to beat for 5 bucks. Add a soft drink and you've got a nice lunch. There is a wide variety of pizza offerings with several different crust options... More

Checked out this place based on the reviews and was very pleased. But if you're looking for a sit down place you won't get it at this location. We were told sit down is at their other location. Nevertheless, we were pleased with our food. Excellent meatball sandwich and pizza.

You can pick our carry-out order from the others: one X-large thin crust cheese and sausage, and a thin crust medium veggie specialty. After too much eating out (Chinese, seafood, burgers, BBQ), we needed something different, which happened to be the same stuff we always order. And, it was great, like always.

I am always looking for a different caterer for my executive meetings. We have ordered pizza from here in the past and everyone loves it. I wanted to do something different than sandwiches and pizza so I ordered Italian beef and meatball sandwiches. OMG just as good if not BETTER than Portillo's! Chicken caesar salad was good too. They do... More

Love, love, love the thin crust pizza! Best ever! Meat balls are also, the best around. We order delivery from here on a regular basis, Ferentino's is even in my favorites for speed dial on my phone!

The thin crust is perfect, great tasting sauce, and toppings. Specially love the "personal" pizza size, perfect for one person. Their sandwiches and salads are also tasty, with generous portions.
