Pizzeria Serio is located in Lakeview, on Belmont west of Lincoln. Owner operated, this pizza establishment was opened in 2010 and has recently been named one of WGN’s Chicago Best.
The proprietor is passionate about carrying forward the traditions and quality of the old country, and it shows in the pizza through the high-quality ingredients and superior taste. The style has been called “NeapolAmerican” – a nod to the Neapolitan roots. The thin pizza is cooked in a brick oven at 800 degrees and is a bit crispy – similar to NY style. My favorite is the Diavola – it’s a little spicy with hot sopressata and pepperoncinis, but I can honestly say that I’ve never had a bad pizza there.
The interior is classic and clean with wooden tables and exposed brick walls. They have really good daily specials that cater to any crowd, even families, along with a solid beer menu.
