Doughing it Right: Artisan Perfection and Community Spirit at Robert’s Pizza 


Robert’s Pizza and Dough Company, nestled on the riverfront in downtown Streeterville, is more than just a pizza haven—it’s a community hub that promises an unforgettable culinary experience.

Robert’s stands out as a full-service artisan pizza-centric restaurant and craft cocktail bar. Garnering accolades like being named among the top 50 pizzas in the U.S. by 50 Top Italy, it has consistently earned praise from local food authorities, including Eater, Thrillist, Timeout, and the coveted title of the #1 artisan pizza in Chicago by Pizza City USA. Notably, its gluten-free pizzas recently clinched a spot in the top 10 in the U.S. by USA TODAY.

Passion for Pizza … and the Community 

What sets Robert’s apart is the personal touch of its founders, Robert and Dana, who perfected their dough recipe over two decades in their downtown apartment. Their passion for pizza was cultivated long before the restaurant’s 2019 opening, building a dedicated following through underground pizza pop-ups.

Beyond its delicious offerings, Robert’s is committed to being a neighborhood institution. From hosting the quirky Howloween Pet Parade to the festive Holiday Ugly Sweater Brunch and the beloved Super Bowl Party, the restaurant fosters a sense of community. Their monthly ticketed dinner series has become a local hit, creating traditions that go beyond pizza.

Community Support

Deeply rooted in community support, Robert’s partners with esteemed organizations like Joffrey Ballet, PAWS Chicago, Lurie’s Children’s Hospital, American Cancer Society, and Mercy Home for Boys and Girls. The restaurant’s patio and dock offer a unique dining oasis in downtown Chicago, but at its core, Robert’s is all about delivering exceptional food on a superb crust.

As a destination, Robert’s Pizza and Dough Company is not just a dining experience; it’s a celebration of Chicago’s vibrant community spirit. This season, enjoy lunch or dinner during Restaurant Week, join the excitement of their Super Bowl Party, elevate your Valentine’s Day with a special dinner, or be a part of Robert’s exclusive Ticketed Dinner Series. Don’t be shy and bring your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and more, as Robert’s is the perfect spot for your group event as well!
