IF YOU MISS CHICAGO PIZZA CHECK THIS PLACE OUT. We are from chicago and this is the only place that knows what they are doing. Its as good as it gets. I cant beleive the user's review below mine. Its so rude and completely rediculous.
Its funny how he would bring the ""horrible"" pizza home with him to-go ( 'cause we all do that when food is terrible) Its also funny how the ""pupic hair"" he later found on it , looks far more like a hair he pulled off his head to take the picture. absolutely reduculous, you should be ashamed of yourself.
My family has been going their for years and its always wonderful food. The service can be spotty when theres new servers but the pizza is top notch and their italian cuisine ( btw, Im from Naples, Italy) its authentic and never dissapointing as so many other italian restaurants are. I have witnessed crazy customers trying to get something for free etc complaining about anything and everything they can think of , they are worst that disgruntled disneyland guests trying to get a free pass to come back because their coffee wasnt hot enough. If you are smart you will ingore this and check it out for yourself. Its homey and the decore is a bit hokey but its great food at great prices and everyone is always super nice and accomodating .
This is the only place in the IE to get a truly authentic "Chicago-style" pizza. I'm from Chicago and I know! When I miss home, this is the place I go. I especially love the Italian beef, just like my old neighborhood stand! Just wish they served Old Style....
this was the worst pizza i have ever tasted, suffered thru one piece and the rest went in the trash. greasy, cooked but crust was limp and tasteless. i dislike frozen pizza but that would be more eatable than this was. never again!!!!!!!

I was there a week before Christmas with a large party. We were neither loud nor rowdy. He told us as soon as we got there not to bother his other patrons...all three of them. Do you remember Seinfeld's Soup Episode? I actually WAS expecting him to scream NO FOOD FOR YOU and throw us out. When the food finally did arrive he slapped a piece of pizza onto our plates and barked WHO ELSE WANTS THIS KIND? I was expecting the food to be fabulous to compensate for our abysmal service. I was sorely disappointed. The taste was comparable to Sbarro's perhaps Domino's. (Only they have better customer service). Our 'deep-dish' was more like a regular pizza with a hard two inch tall lip. Waiter/Owner kept sending his minions in to watch us, as if we were going to steal his pepper flakes or something. If anyone had to audacity to ask for something (like a fork or straw) his minions were equally as inhospitable. Once half an our went by waiter/owner came and demanded plates. He did not ask if we were done he had already decided. He would come in and check his watch and walk away. We got there around 8pm and we were there for less than two hours. I personally have never been to a sit-down restaurant on a Friday night that has closed before eleven. This was my first (and last) experience as this establishment. Someone had said that's how they (Italians) are. While that's all well and good, we were not in Italy. I know from experience, the customer may NOT always be right but the customer is ALWAYS the customer. A general rule of thumb, when your food is lacking you had better have outstanding service. If you do not want a large party in your place, do not agree to having one. I'm sure the tip was included in the bill which is a good thing for him as not one of us would have dropped a single cent. If you MUST have mediocre Italian food, I assure you, this is NOT the place to get it.

To start out the pizza we ordered was awesome. The problems with this place had nothhing to do with the food. We were seated fairly quickly by a waiter who took our drink order. There was one other customer in the restaurant besides us and it took him 20 minutes to get out order and bring us a drink despite the fact that they were already eating. There was from what I could tell 4 waiters and several kitchen staff at the time we were there. I watched as this strange waiter took pizza order calls on a cordless in the middle of the dining room. He became very frusterated at times and even hung up on one patron.
Forty minutes into pour wait we were still the only patrons. This waiter was sitting at the other end of the room eating and making strange gestures to our 2 year old daughter. Finally after 1 hour and 10 minutes I saw a waitress come out of the kitchen with our pizza. I watched as our waiter made a hand gesture for her to take it back in the kitchen because he was on the phone. Another ten minutes went by and after waiting for our waiter to get off the phone he went into the kitchen and retrieved our pizza as though we had not seen it come out before.
Bottom line we waited 1 hour and 20 minutes for a PIZZA!! It was delicious; b ut I will never go back there due to the creepy waiter.

Whenever I am in the vicinity of Moreno Valley I make a point of stopping at Chicago Pasta House. The deep-dish pizza is very good. However, for me, the real show-stopper is their linguine with clams in red sauce; there are plenty of clams and the sauce is laden with chunks of garlic -- it's just delicious. Highly recommended for anyone passing through the Inland Empire.

I do have to admit, about 5 years ago, this place was awesome. The food was good, the service was good, it was a nice little hole in the wall italian restaurant. I just dined there about a month ago and could not believe that this once descent restaurant had turned so bad so fast. It has remained with the same management since it's opening but the way they run the place has downgraded drastically. There were termites all over the windows, spiderwebs that have had to have been there for at least a month and the food was horrible. They changed the recipies and started using very poor quality products to make the food and you can taste it. About 5 years ago, I could see this restaurant getting a good review but now, no way.

The stuffed pizza is just about, if not as great as the pizza you would find at Gino's East in downtown Chicago. Service is a bit slow but well worth the wait. The place itself is nothing fancy but it's the ""hole in the wall"" restaurants where you find the best food at times.

I thought the chicago pasta house was great the first time I went on a romantic evening with my husband, then we went for lunch with our one year old child. The service was terrible we sat for 30 minutes without a menu then the waiter brought us an old, sticky, and dirty high chair. I was extremely pissed off. We just got up and left. It was nothing like the service we got in the evening.

Delectable! At Chicago Pasta House, Dino has retained true to Chicago with his authentic Italian cuisine. Upon arriving at Chicago Pasta House, you feel right at home with the cozy ambiance and friendly service. His Chicagos Original Famous Stuffed Pizza is the ""Best in the West."" You cannot compare to any other unless you've tried this pie. Other dishes include: Veal Scaloppini, Linguini Pescatori, Stuffed Eggplant, and my favorites Fettuccini Alfredo in a white wine sauce and Spaghetti with Mushrooms in Angel Hair Pasta the way spaghetti should be served. For the large groups, I highly recommend the Godfather Especial - A large pot of Ciopino overflowing with crab legs, shrimp, bacalla, lobster, calamari, scallops and fried fish and vegetables, it will feed 5-6 people. To put it simply this is the best food in Southern California, at the best value, anywhere.
