about us

Georgio's Chicago Pizzeria & Pub is a family owned pizzeria, with two locations in Illinois, Crystal Lake and South Barrington.   The first location was opened in historic downtown Crystal Lake by Brian Coli and his father Michael Coli in 2002.

Our passion for serving you the best pizza is at the foundation of everything we do!  We create, eat, and sleep pizza.  Not just pizza, but real pizza, authentic pizza, the best Chicago style Deep Dish pizza you've ever had, as well as Chicago's other lesser known pizza, the crispy thin crust. We take pride in our pizza, and if you've tried Georgio's, you know!   Many places claim to have "Chicago style" pizza, but few have the real deal.  We have a simple menu which allows us to focus on what we do best, pizza.  From treating the water used in our dough recipe to be just like Chicago's water, to using the same high quality mozzarella cheese, we use right ingredients necessary to serve our guests truly authentic Chicago style pizza, the same as when it was first created in Chicago in the 1940's.  If you can't tell already, we love what we do!  Georgio's welcomes everyone from pizza connoisseurs to self-proclaimed foodies to give us a try!
