You can't go wrong with a pizza and wine combo, but you can go wrong with the venue. Tip: stay away from rowdy sports bars on your first date! We are very particular when choosing the best date spots for pizza, therefore this list is short and sweet.
Homeslice | Lincoln Park
Homeslice gets an overall grade of an A+ for atmosphere, food, and drinks. The rustic decor makes you feel like you're in a log cabin nestled in a ski resort. The outdoor back patio has bright Italian lights, heat lamps, cozy patio seating, and a gutted silver bullet trailer available for seating. They have the best gluten-free pizza I've personally ever had. Plus, they serve their Moscow Mule just right and necessarily out of a copper mug (which you can buy for $10).
Address: 938 W Webster Ave, Chicago, IL 60614
Compass | Lakeview
Compass is another great option for a more casual, laid-back date night without sacrificing quality. They offer a great craft beer selection (gluten-free options) and a tasty menu offering thin crust woodfire pizza, buffalo wings, salads, and even a delicious salmon dish. They also have great weekday specials, such as their Craft Draft Night on Mondays and half priced bottles of wine with a purchase of pizza on Tuesdays.
Address: 433 W. Diversey, Chicago, IL 60614
Quartino Pizzeria & Wine Bar | Near North Side
Quartino is a great spot for grabbing a Neapolitan thin-crust pizza and carafe of wine for two. This bustling downtown venue serves authentic regional Italian food and an atmosphere perfect for a date night.
Address: 626 N State St, Chicago, IL 60654
