I had been hearing a lot about Bonic pizza that opened in the West Loop and I haven’t had a chance to make it there yet. Lucky for me, Bonci recently opened a second Chicago location in Wicker Park. Bonci serves Roman-style Pizza which is different than the wood fired pizza traditionally associated with Italy. They serve a variety of one of a kind pizzas including meat and vegetarian options.
When you order your pizza choice at the counter, my advice is to order a few different pizzas and to share with a friend. The Bonci employee will ask how large of a piece you want for each of your pizza selections. If you are curious about trying out a new and different pizza, you can be conservative and get a smaller piece. I ended trying a few different pizzas and I even tried the Roman-inspired rice and pasta balls stuffed with cheeses and meats. When your pizza is ready, it will be served cut into small pieces which is perfect for sharing. My favorite pizza was a tie between the Pear and Gorgonzola cheese pizza and the Caramelized Onion pizza. I would definitely recommend Bonci to anyone who loves pizza!
