Marcello's Father & Son
When searching for a solid Chicago style pizza, this is not the restaurant. If, however, you are looking for quality, thin crust pizza, Father and Son serves up some of the city's best. Father and Son may not be the wisest of choices when exploring restaurants with excellent customer service. It may not offer the most worthwhile pasta or appetizer dishes. The setting of this restaurant is at best a bland mixture of a traditional Italian spot and a family restaurant. What the restaurant lacks in unique pizza making or restaurant theme, it compensates for with a sincere and fantastic pizza.
I love my pizza thin and crunchy, my family likes the traditional deep dish pizza. The pizza here is great! Father & son also has great food in addition to pizza. Great place to take a family because the pricing is reasonable.
From childhood, we enjoyed the unique thin crust and sausage of F&S pizza. Through the years, this pizza has remained a gem. Why come up with a new idea when this is so magnificent? F&S is a staple of my return trips to the Chicago area, even if I can't always make it to the original location on Milwaukee Ave.
I lived in Logan Square growing up and this was the only pizza place my parents ordered from during the 22 years I lived in that neighborhood. We all still continue to go there today, despite my living in the burbs. The pizza has always been the best. I spent many a Friday and/or Saturday night with my buddy, watching movies and ordering Father & Son for dinner. I've never been disappointed there. I wish there were more locations, but there's nothing like the original. Nobody makes thin crust the way they do. Even the sandwiches, entres and appetizers are all great. I used to order the chilli in a quart size! It was enough to last for a few days. My mom had a birthday party for me there when I was in grammar school. A friend of mine, and I, finished a thin crust pizza that serves 5, all on our own. If you want a truly great thin crust pizza, this is the place. Accept no imitations!
Love their thin crust Pizza. It is a tie between Father & Son and DiAgostino's in Wrigleyville for the best thin crust in the city. Stuffed and pan pizza put me in a carb coma but l love thin crust pizza. Also, try their carrot cake...one of the best I've ever had. First time I had it I couldn't believe it was from a pizza joint. Better than most bakery carrot cakes.
