On September 8th we interviewed Brian Coli about his restaurant Georgio’s Chicago Pizzeria & Pub.
Tell us a little about your business.
We opened Georgio’s in 2002. Our intention was to bring the taste and feel of Chicago to Crystal Lake with an atmosphere reminiscent of historic downtown Chicago. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a family meal, a friends’ night out, or to watch the game on the big screen plasma televisions placed throughout the bar and dining areas.
I know that you are known for your deep dish pizza, but what are some of your other favorites?
I love our thin crust pizza. My other favorites would have to be the calzones and I would have to add the lasagna as well.
What do you think helps to make your restaurant so successful?
The quality of our food. We use only the freshest ingredients in all of our recipes, including our signature deep dish pie, that was developed in my fathers first restaurant, and whose recipe has been kept “secret” for over 60 years! Also the fun and laid back atmosphere helps our customers to enjoy their dining experience with us. We are also a favorite late night spot.
What influenced your decision to open in Crystal Lake?
I live in the community and felt that the Historic Downtown Area would be the perfect setting for the restaurant and our concepts for it.
Does Georgio’s offer any other services?
We host customers parties here in the restaurant and we have a great catering department for off-site-parties and special occasions. We also have a large pick up and delivery clientele.
Any other things you would like to mention?
There are our daily specials and occasionally we have events such as wine tastings or have live entertainment, you can keep up to date on our website at www.georgiospizza.com and look under the events tab. We have another Georgio’s in Algonquin and in the South Barrington-ArboretumGeorgio’s Chicago Pizzeria & Pub Dine in, Carry out, or Delivery 75 E. Woodstock St.
