People seem to either hate Pizzeria Uno, or love it, depending on their love of pizza and their background. This review is geared toward tourists, as downtown locals more than likely have been here already and have formed their opinons. Things tourists might dislike: The wait times can be pretty long (45 mins to over an hour when it's busy) and the place is small and cramped. Noise levels can also get pretty loud. Things tourists might like: Even though the wait times can be long, you can at least place your order when you put your name down so at least you may not have to wait much longer after you sit down for your deep dish pizza (which traditionally takes longer to make than a regular or thin crust). Things tourists might like or dislike: The deep dish pizza itself! I've had friends from the west coast come out and absolutely love the pie-like crust and how the toppings are placed under the cheese. At the same time, I've heard complaints about the tomato chunks in the sauce. Friends from the east coast have just plainly said that nothing is better than New York pizza. I have not had the chance to judge, though I hope to do so this summer. So there it is. I hope this helps people that have never been to Pizzeria Uno. If you're from out of town and are in downtown, I recommend a go at this place.
Every time I have dined at Sapori I have enjoyed it. The last time I was there I had a reservation for 8:30 and it was completly full and they realized they weren't going to be able to seat us right on time so they took my entire party to the bar and gave us a round on the house. I love that their menu changes and that the owner/chef will come out to see how you are enjoying your food. I gave honest feedback that the meal was not as I expected and had a more hearty flavor than I was looking for and he replaced my entire meal with something else that he thought I would love in under 10min. That's what I call service! I've had everything from the calamari to the lasagna and I really enjoy the rustic flavors that are brought to the entree's. The atmosphere is quaint and conservative, it's a great place for a first date or a casual dinner amongst friends. I really enjoy the sharp crowd and the great people watching. I think they also have seatting in the back of the house for larger parties.
This place was amazing from the word go. Not being from the city the prices seemed to be high until you get the food to have the best waitress, drink guys, and chef possible.1. My grandmother inlaw has a garlic allergy and she is italian which is a bad mix. The chef came to her and said he would make a special from scratch dinner of her choice! she enjoyed every second of her meal! 2. we had 2 small year and half old children that were not wanting to sit still all the time. the waitress had to stop them from running out of our side room more than once and did it with a smile and did not complain once! My daughter and wife are kinda picky eaters and they allowed them to pick alacarte pasta alfredo with chicken. All in all a fabulous dinner and with everything that went with the dinner the prices were actually just fine with me!!
