FORKS, KNIVES AND FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Bacci Pizzeria: Home of the Jumbo Slice

Holy pizza. I’m not sure what you guys consider a “large” slice of pizza, but wow. This place serves huge, ginormous, jumbo-sized slices of pizza! Bacci Pizzeria heats up slices taken from exorbitantly large, whole pizzas and provides you with a free pop. What’s not to love about that? Here… let’s put the size of the slice into perspective. Think of a lunch tray with an area that measures at about 11 by 17 inches or so. Imagine a huge, triangular slice of pizza swallowing up almost all of that area. That’s how big the slices are. If that kind of piece won’t make you full, I don’t know what will!
The pizza’s pretty good, and the atmosphere is certainly homey. It’s an aged, Chicagoan atmosphere. This certainly applies to the Wrigleyville location, where loads of bar-hoppers will head on over to get their fix up until 4 in the morning on most days!
Conveniently located off the Addison stop on the Red Line, Bacci Pizzeria serves and satisfies many pizza-loving customers.
