“Now I'm in TN and looking forward to coming more regularly to the Chicago area for a great pizza in a very welcoming atmosphere.”
“On a final note The pizza place we went to the week before we found Joe's was Fox's which we all know doesn't cut their pizza, the staff was not nice the noise level was unbearable( we weren't even in the bar area) and then to really add insult to it all ”
“and the toasted ravioli with the meat sauce is the best, too.”
“Best Pizza I've had in years, Great freindly people”
“excellent food - great service from employees that have been there a long time”
dont do it they are willing to screw 30 year old customers because I dident open my pizza until i got home 3plus hours later the kids jumbo was just ok 60plus dollars later i got home from work the crust was burnt called back told to f oh I Mean kiss off we dont need your 30 year bissness any more
What a horrible business - poor attitude - Inept Ownership!.
I ordered 7 jumbo pizza's from Joe's for an event I was hosting. 6 pizza's arrived. I asked to be refunded for one undelivered pizza...seemed like a simple enough solution.
INSTEAD...Joe, the business owner, gets on the phone with me and starts arguing about how he made the pizzas and the driver is saying he delivered 7 pizzas. Apparently math is not a must in the pizza shop owning business as my counter argument that I am standing over 6 and only 6 pizzas was not satisfactory.
Joe then has the audacity to state that 'well I bet it is the best pizza you've ever had' in the middle of an argument about him charging me for undelivered product!
Story ends with Joe basically stealing $25 out of a $200 order for...AND DON'T MISTAKE THIS EVERYONE...very mediocre, run of the mill, can get it ANYWHERE, pizza.
Best Old Chicago-Style Thin Crust.
*Best cheese on pizza... cooked good and light brown.
*Best crust on pizza... nobody has been able to produce a consistent thin cracker crisp crunch all the way thru like this place. We always get the traditional sausage pizza... I wonder if it would stay crunchy like this if multiple items were ordered.
*Best sauce... just the right amount of sauce. Not dry and not overly saturated.
*Better than the great original Vito and Nick's on Pulaski (featured on the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives")
Oh... and the toasted ravioli with the meat sauce is the best, too.
Service is classic friendly Southside style.
Not a fancy restaurant... a booths and tables/chairs-type a place (probably seating for about 50). Pricing is very fair. Can get half-pitchers of beer or pop!
My background... West Side (city and burbs my whole life) and I am NEVER out this way, so I am not being biased, like I was from this area.
Pizza recipe has not changed since the 1940's How great it is to have that same taste, and be reminded of growing up around 63rd st back in the day! Sadly for me I'm out in California and can only get my pizza fix once in while, when I visit.

excellent food - great service from employees that have been there a long time. We love eating at Joe's Italian Villa - and having their food delivered, as well. We enjoy their pizza and lasagna! The people that work there - make it! They really are good folks.
Best Pizza Ever!. Joe's is definitely one of my favorite restaurants. My family has been going there since my mom and her siblings were little. I always take my girlfriend there when she is in town, and we always get a large cheese pizza, a side of fries, and a pitcher of Pepsi. Everything is always excellent. Their sodas are very syrupy and full of flavor. I highly recommend it for anyone who is looking for great food and service. My only regret is that they don't sell the cool tie-dyed shirts that the waitresses wear.
Best Pizza I have ever had hands down. During the more then 7 and ? years that I served in the Navy and the places that I have traveled since I have had Pizza in just about all of them. I can assure you that I have eaten more then my fair share of Pizza and I can only say that hands down Joe?s Italian Villa Pizza is the best. While some people may have had other items from their menu all I can speak about is the Pizza because I do not go into a PIZZA Place for chicken. So I don?t know if it is good or not my Wife has had their alfredo which she loves and she should know about it as she and her family owned a Geno?s East Pizza restaurant. I used to give her trouble about the fact that they had a sign in their place that said if you find a better Pizza then ours we will buy it, From the first time I brought her their she agreed that Joe?s was better. That is my opinion for what it is worth exnavydad
Best pizza anywhere. Best pizza without a doubt. I lived in Bridgeview then moved to Florida and always went to Joe's when I returned. Now I'm in TN and looking forward to coming more regularly to the Chicago area for a great pizza in a very welcoming atmosphere.
TOP NOTCH ESTABLISHMENT!. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JOE'S ITALIAN VILLA, I HAVE BEEN GOING EVER SINCE I WAS A KID AND MY PARENTS TOOK ME. NO MATTER IF YOU DINE IN, CARRY OUT, OR DELIVERY YOU ALWAYS GET WORLD CLASS SERVICE! GREAT FOOD, VERY AFFORDABLE, AND WHEN YOU THROW IN GREAT HOSPITALITY I DON'T THINK IT CAN BE BEAT! IN MY 25 YEARS OF GOING THERE I HAVE NEVER HAD A BAD MEAL OR EXPERIENCE.
Best Pizza in Chicago.
I was born in Chicago and I have had more than my share of pizza. Joe's is by far the best pizza in the area. I actual crave the taste. The sauce is addictive. Try the Italian Beef dipped with red sauce, it is outstanding. The thin crust pizza is what they are known for but the deep dish is a good change of pace. My whole family is addicted and I have hooked many of my friends into the villa. The service is great and the owners will stop by your table and say hello. If you haven't tried this place then find your way there.
It is great for the family with a casual atmosphere and the game is always on the TV.
