Large warehouse-like room, industrial chic which big pizza furnaces, piles of logs and lots of people rushing around. Seemed to me to be one of the busiest restaurants in Evanston from early evening. Lots of family groups and friends having dinner; quite a nice local-community...More

Good food, nice/friendly service. They were very accommodating on pacing food we had ordered so we could linger over dinner while waiting for the show. Cauliflower and Brussels sprouts sides were good as appetizers. Salmon was excellent. Nice that they put bacon on side to...More

Great Pizzas and other food items, service generally good. A regular spot for food and meeting friends. Some of the customers can get a bit territorial around the bar. The wine list could be improved, it's ok but not great. Usually there is a decent...More

Pizza is a harmonious balance of crust, sauce, cheese and whatever topping you choose to put on it. Union Pizzeria's pizza was sadly a cacophonous nightmare of elements strewn together resembling pizza. At first bite my wife and I looked at each other both trying...More

Absolutely love this restaurant. The chocolate bread pudding is one of the best things I've ever had! Burratta (pictured below) was delicious, as was the mushroom bechamel pizza with sage. The kale salad was not ordinary at all! Delicious soft cheese, avocado and perfectly dressed!...More
