“am not one who appreciates mushrooms but the 'shrooms on this pizza were so fresh that there was no not-liking them.”
Great outdoor patio that I will enjoy douring the summer.
Service was excellent and food was to die for.
I will say tv was a bit too loud and had a hard time talking to my friends.
Drinks where ok! will come back again.
An Oasis In Lincoln Park (Chicago). We were getting hungry fast and not finding any restaurants open that would qualify as memorable on our last day in Chicago. CitySearch was recommending restaurants that didnt open for several hours and we needed lunch. Thankfully we asked someone collecting for charity and they recommended Rocco's (or Rocco Ranalli's). We tried the Rocco's Special, a great thin crust pizza choice. I am not one who appreciates mushrooms but the 'shrooms on this pizza were so fresh that there was no not-liking them. The draft beer was very cold and just what a Saturday lunch in Chicago called for. As the Black Hawk's were in the playoffs, the large flatscreen TVs were tuned in but the diners were not boisterous in the least. In closing, should I ever find myself back in CHI anytime soon, Rocco's will be on my short list.
Lincoln Park Neighborhood Hangout. I have come into Rocco's a few times now, this time in particular to eat dinner with a few friends. I was very pleased from the time we arrived until we left...4 hours later. It was a Wednesday night, which meant half priced wines. 3 bottles later we realized it was time to leave. The food was fabulous and the service was friendly. Can't wait to come back.
Lincoln Park pizzeria draws regulars with its relaxed vibe.. One look at the large, tree-filled garden patio at this Lincoln Park restaurant and you’ll wish Chicago’s weather allowed more months of outdoor dining. The 150-seat area is a big draw for kid-toting families, as well as neighborhood types looking for a place to relax over Italian standards like fried calamari, linguine with clams, and thin- and double-dough crust pizzas. Inside, there are plenty of cozy nooks, decorated with vintage photos and colorful ceramics, as well as tables topped with iconic red-and-white checkered tablecloths. The 16 beers on tap and half-dozen flatscreens that flank the U-shaped bar make it a prime spot for catching a game.
Double decker pizza. I love their double decker pizza. One pizza on top of another pizza. For pizza lovers, this is a dreamy and delicious pizza.
Young professionals crowd this humongous Lincoln Park institution for the pizza and selection of bottled beers..
This restaurant's cavernous, maze-like interior has several dining rooms, with huge patio seating that's coveted in warm weather. Pizza is served five ways: super-thin, thin, pan, and Chicago-style stuffed and double-decker pies. Pan pizza is like thin, but with the crust folded back onto the pizza to overlap about two inches. For something different, try a panzerotti--a pizza turnover that's deep-fried to a golden brown.
Cream of the Crust. I would argue that Ranalli's offers the best thin crust pizza in the city. However, their thicker crust (not deep dish) is one of a kind and just as delicious. Moreover the ambiance is lively, comfortable and enjoyable.
