My father, Rudy Malnati Sr. opened his first restaurant, Pizzeria Uno, in 1943.
Located in Chicago, he featured “Deep Dish Pizza”, an innovative creation that made a meal of pizza, which had previously only been eaten as a snack.
He loved traditional food based on authentic recipes using quality ingredients. And he was a stickler for making sure this is what his customers received from his kitchen, along with warm, friendly service and a comfortable setting in which to enjoy these fine dishes.
I opened Pizano’s in 1991 and this legacy is our foundation. We feature great food steeped in Italian tradition, skillfully prepared from the highest quality ingredients, and served in an inviting atmosphere in which to celebrate friendship and family.
Thank you for your interest in Pizano’s. We look forward to carrying on a tradition of serving you, along with your family and friends – for generations to come.
