I enjoyed having pizza to share for New Years Eve. The pizza was delicious!!! I miss how good pizza from the Midwest tastes now that I live in Colorado. Thank You! Angie

This is the real thing! After many attempts to enjoy the Chicago pizza of our dreams outside Chicago—thick, crunchy outside crust with slightly salty finish, generous tub of creamy but not overly stringy cheese, tangy and assertive but not overwhelming sauce—Bartolini's did it for us. Sound like I'm describing a fine wine?I 'm not embarrassed because we've been seeking this pizza nostalgia trip for decades and have finally found it. The pies survive freezing well and also reheat acceptably. Thank you, Bartolini Bros --we'll be back.
Not only did the pizza get here on time and in perfect condition it was a bargain and fed 12 people easily!!!!! Good job Bartolinis!!!!!!!
Not nearly enough sauce for how big pizza is.
We have made multiple orders for these pizzas; the quality is superior.
We've had the cheese and it's fabulous! Love it!
One star goes to FoodyDirect for their delivery service; the pizzas arrived on time as promised. However, the remaining stars are for the Bartolini’s deep-dish pizzas; they were tasty. The overall build of each pizza was nice; they were oozing with cheese, their crusts were flavorfully thick/soft/crunchy, and the tomato sauce was just right (it didn’t taste acidic or too sweet). Only wished that the pizza with the spinach had more spinach; it was really lacking in that topping (especially for it to be a spinach pizza). But, the meatball and the sausage pizzas were really good.

Have been looking for an excellent deep dish since I left Chicago, and this was it! Ordered three different deep dish as well as two thin crust and all where a big hit. Ordered for my wife's family in Water Mill NY and everyone loved them. I live in Flat Rock, NC and will reorder for my self as soon as we return!
Perfection! Excellently and carefully packed. Flavor was spot on! Would highly recommend!
Loved them. Can't get this kind of pizza in Memphis. Great delivery, pizza ice cold when they arrived!! Beautiful pizzas--delicious
Excellent pizzas! I will most likely be ordering from this place again.
