Lonely Planet review

Ike Sewell supposedly invented Chicago-style pizza here on December 3, 1943, although his claim to fame is hotly contested. A light, flaky crust holds piles of cheese and a herb-laced tomato sauce. The pizzas take a while, but stick to the pitchers of beer and cheap red wine to kill time and avoid the salad and other distractions to save room for the main event.

Sister outlet Pizzeria Due is one block north; it's marginally less packed than Uno. If mobs aren’t your thing, nearby Giordano’s is a swell option.
