As a native Chicagoan, I am a rabid deep-dish pizza loyalist. I had resigned myself to mail-order Giordano’s while living in Seattle, until the fateful day when I wandered into Delfino’s unassuming University Place storefront. Holy crap! After a single bite, I stormed up to the counter and demanded to know which one of their staff was from Chicago. Turns out the owners are from Wilmette and went to my high school. You can taste Chitown in every bite here. Shocking, but true.
