Renaldi's thin crust pizza hits the spot when you dine there or have it delivered.

I have a confession to make. I like thin crust pizza. It’s not that I don’t appreciate Chicago-style… after enduring this winter’s chill, I certainly see the merit of a stuffed crust more than ever. It sticks to your bones and may provide a little insulation. Still, when it comes to the quality of taste, thin crust pizza wins hands down. And you can find a solid example of what it should be at Renaldi’s. There’s no frou-frou pizza here, just classic favorites that hit the spot whether you dine-in or call for delivery.

Let me apologize now, gentle listeners. I must have gotten a little carried away with excitement somewhere in between talking about plastic pitchers of coke and marinara dipping sauces because I mispronounce “Renaldi’s” in this podcast. But T and I like the restaurant enough to post our review anyway. I misspoke, but Renaldi’s is still worth talking about.

    This was confusing! Ranalli’s also wraps their pizza in foil.
    That said, I always thought of Renaldi’s as more of a New York-style pizza joint. But it is my second favorite in Chicago, behind Ranalli’s.
