This owner must not need the business!

Great Pizza, but the guy on the phone was purposefully being rude. I know this wont make a difference in how they treat customers in the future, because other reviews have said the same thing and we still got bad service. So I guess even though the pizza is good we wont eat here anymore. There are many great places in Chicago that have both good pizza, and good service, so why order from a place that treats people in such a rude fashion. The owner must be sooooo rich to allow his employees to treat customers this way!



Always Ready, Great Price

I love the Art of Pizza because it is one of the most convenient pizza places around. I hate waiting for my chicago style pizza, but the Art of Pizza always has it ready. In addition, they have pan and thin crust. All types of pizza are the same price so for the best value get the Chicago Style. The restaurant is also pretty big inside and nice. I recommend walking there though as there is little area to park.

As far as them claiming the #1 chicago style pizza? I disagree because I think there are several better. But none that have a pizza this good ready all of the time.

Done with the Art

Great pizza but horrible customer service. I have been ordering for years and am prepared for my 75 minute wait time which have actually been over 2 hours. However, the last time I ordered they served two pizzas that had been flipped over. When I called they said they would only send us a replacement for one of the pizzas because I had salvaged a few corner pieces to give to my 2year old son from one of them. The manager, who never apologized, then accused me of trying to get 4 free pizzas. By the way, the replacement pizza never came and when I called back the manager said I'd hung up on him and he didn't have time to talk to me. I am done with the Art.

Great place for good bread!

all! Best place to eat pizza in town. A must.

Great place for a quick lunch

This is a great neighborhood joint to get a quick slice and a pop for lunch. I particularly love the sausage deep dish. The only beef with this Lakeview eatery is the single cashier and the long lines through the day.

For less than $4, you get a slice of pizza and a medium fountain drink - a good deal in tough times.

I had a bad exprience 6 months ago tried them again even worse. I will never order again. They use to be good however they have changed. After the order taker told me he believe the cook over my word about the forgotten items I knew time to stop ordering. Awful pizza and customer service.

Awesome Pizza

I order delivery from here at least once a month. Art's special is my favorite. Delicious, and the delivery is always on time!



Great for all occasions

You can run in and pick up one slice of about 12 different pizza's they have and either take it home or eat in the clean dinning room. Delivery is great at you get free pop with your pizza. Can't beat it!

Great pizza, poor service.

Their pizza is the best... it is always good. Lots of cheese with great crust. Just be ready for a fusterating, unfriendly experience when talking with the staff. They aren't too sharp. Calling in to place an order is like speaking with a talking monkey. Simple questions seem too complex and make a quick call way too long. Maybe some there will read this review and take steps to improve this much needed area of their business.

Go for the pizza, but consider yourself warned!

Haters sippin' haterade

Everyone who said the service is terrible is mistaken. The phone service is pretty much ""no frills"" but get over it. This is obviously not a place you go for an intimate dining experience.
Most people go for... oh, I dunno... the pizza?
Stuffed is where it's at. The pan is good too, and the thin is good if you like that sort of thing. Thin crust is pretty similar to most, but still good.
Specials are the deal of the century.
Seriously, though... all those people giving bad reviews must work at Giordano's, Gino's, etc.
