Great little location, feels very chill and college-like. I personally did not feel it was the best Chicago style pizza I've had (since I'm originally from Chicago) however my co-workers enjoyed their meals. It was a bit too hot, burnt the top of my mouth, and bottom of the pizza was black burnt making the crust really hard to chew.... More

Middle of downtown gas lamp district. Leo it'll hole in the wall. Look like a sandwich shop that serves locally brewed beer.

Nice little college style pizza joint. Good slices, good music, good people. Hangover food for certain.

Dude happened to have a pizza I think he was taking it home for himself…which He gladly cut me off two slices of what is arguably some of the best deep dish anywhere south of the Windy City. Thanks mate you saved the day! I tried this place last time I was in town and it was awesome and it... More

In town for a week and wanted a pizza for lunch. Saw the reviews so I thought we would give it a try. People seem to complain about the time it takes for their pizza. My God the bloody thing is over an inch thick do they want it raw? Pizza was excellent, the crust was best I have ever... More

I did the slice combo (two slices and a drink for $10.50, or $11 w/credit card). The pepperoni was pretty good, but the garlic pesto was phenomenal. I was still a little hungry when I left, so I went down the street for gelato at Chocolate.

I mean, I was just so happy that friends were getting married in the Gaslamp because I could have Berkeley Pizza. A place that I dream about, yearn for, and try to find a replacement since I no longer live in CA. Though, I have never had true Chicago deep dish, this is what I imagine it to be. Flakey... More

We ate here upon a recommendation from a local. The pizza is different and interesting. It is deep dish and the topping is on the bottom and the sauce is on top. It tasted good. The combo of 2 slices and drink is reasonably priced and it was a good stop for lunch.
