Ranalli’s of Andersonville located at 1512 W. Berwyn in the heart of a former Swedish enclave has been a warm and hospitable neighborhood restaurant and gathering place since opening in September of 2006.
Owned and operated by Andersonville native Jennifer Grant and her partners, Ranalli’s of Andersonville offers the legendary recipes of the original Ranalli’s on Lincoln, a landmark Chicago pizzeria that opened in Old Town in the early ‘80’s. Jennifer worked at Ranalli’s on Lincoln for over two decades and when the original location closed, Ms. Grant and her partners, seeing the need for a similar style of restaurant in a quickly gentrifying neighborhood, rented a vacant gourmet food shop and built the warm and welcoming restaurant as the casual, family friendly, neighborhood restaurant it is today.
Famous for their thin, stuffed, double decker and pan style pizzas, panzerotti (which means “the bomb” in Italian), signature sandwiches, mouth-watering ribs, abundant salads, pastas, traditional Italian entrees and decadent desserts, Ranalli’s of Andersonville offers a little something for everyone!
While based on the Ranalli family’s century old traditions, recipes and gracious hospitality, Ranalli’s of Andersonville has also embraced contemporary dining trends and dietary demands offering low fat options, an entire gluten free menu and plenty of healthy items to choose from. Ranalli’s of Andersonville offers fast, hot delivery, online ordering, dining in, a seasonal sidewalk café, carry-out, off-site catering and in-house special events making Ranalli’s of Andersonville the perfect location for showers, reunions, rehearsal dinners, milestone events or celebrations of any sort!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"They consistently have the best pizza around, and a nice italian menu to boot. My favorite is a Sausage and Red Bell Peppers, which I top off with Parmesan and Romano Cheese, and spicy red pepper flakes. I also love their steak and salads, but the pizza takes me home every time."
I am so thrilled to find a place that serves gluten-free pizza that tastes like real pizza. Not only that, but there was GF pizza and garlic bread, sandwiches, and even desserts. The price was right, too. I’ll definitely be back and have already recommended other to try out the GF menu.
The atmosphere is relaxed and casual, with dim lights and small candles. Equally excellent for a 1st date or a 501st. The beer/wine selection is varied enough for connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike. The service is friendly and fast, and the food is great! No matter, more pizza for me!
