Pizzeria Uno serves much more than pizza. In a bar and grill style atmosphere, you can get great sirloin tips, pick a pasta, standards like chicken, burgers and fish & chips.

And not only can you also get pizza at Uno's, you can get the original deep dish pizza, according to Uno's lore. Ike Sewell created Deep Dish Pizza in 1943. Some folks call it Chicago pizza. Ike figured that if you combined some of Italy's old, authentic recipes with impressive quantities of the finest meats, spices, vegetables and cheeses, pizza would become a hearty meal. So he opened Pizzeria Uno as a fine restaurant specializing in his new Deep Dish Pizza and it wasn't long before the restaurant had more customers than it could handle.

Because Uno's didn't have enough room to expand, Ike did another wonderful thing. He opened Pizzeria Due on the opposite street corner in the lower level of a beautiful, Victorian Mansion. The rest is legend. Pizzeria Uno and Due have become the most celebrated Pizzerias in the world. They've been mentioned in gourmet cookbooks, written about in magazines and major newspapers, and featured on television and radio shows.
