Home of Chicago’s Best Deep-Dish Pizza

The sweet smell of pizza will hit you the minute you step into our cozy, warm, old-world Italian restaurant. And when you take a bite of our bestselling cheesy, greasy, deep-dish Chicago-style slices, you’ll understand why we are known as the best pizza place in Chicago.

Italian southern comfort food

And if you’re in the mood for something else, we also have mouthwatering Italian southern comfort food—cheese tortellini and our homemade, Mozzarella-topped lasagna, which come from family recipes handed down through generations.

There’s space for you here

Just a few minutes away from the Loop, our spacious pizza restaurant in Chicago can accommodate up to 450 people—with enough parking for everyone. And the long bar means you can prop yourself up with a Chardonnay while you wait.

Our Story

connie's deep dish pizza

Much has happened since our dad, Jim Stolfe, traded his prized 1962 Oldsmobile Starfire to open the first Connie’s in a small storefront on the south side of Chicago.

We no longer play records, we download tunes. We chat online, not over the neighbor’s fence.

The Connie’s family has undergone changes as well! We have opened new restaurants and expanded into frozen foods nationwide.

There are some things, however, that have not changed. We are still family owned. We are still obsessed with quality and service. And Dad still has the final word! We hope you will all be customers for 50 more years!
