Situated in the popular-but-mellow Roscoe Village area, this casual pizza joint offers a wide variety of personal pizzas ranging from the traditional to the experimental. The neighborhood's favorite pie is the Robey Pizza, and rightly so! It's made with a mixture of mild and hot Italian sausage with tomato sauce, sliced mushrooms, sliced onions and asiago and mozzarella cheese.
You won't find anything bigger than 12-inch here, but these thin crust pies are more than enough for two. If you have a really hearty appetite, try a fresh Caesar or tomato and blue cheese salad while you wait, though the wait is never long. Your order is served fast and piping hot, and the toppings are always super fresh, even on the busiest of days.
Don't worry about stopping by solo: There's more than a handful of personal pies to choose from, fit for both vegetarians and those whose mouth is already watering over the aforementioned pizza, including a tasty Portobello mushroom with pesto and mozzarella cheese version, as well as several chicken-topped favorites. Sandwiches are also oven-baked and served on Robey Pizza Kitchen's very own French bread. Just like the pizza, there's a sandwich here for everyone.
Here are a few little things to remember: This Old World Italian eatery is very small and very informal. Think throwaway plastic plates and plasticware. If you're looking to drink here, forget it! But don't worry, Riverview Tavern is right next door, making it easy to grab a drink then kick back and enjoy a ridiculously tasty pizza, or vice versa.
