The pizza at this chain location is nothing spectacular. It is good, just nothing great. We have gone many times, but I never wrote a review. The service was exceptionally poor. Very slow and inattentive. And the prices for pizza and half a Caesar salad should not be over $100 for a family of four!

I visited this restaurant after about a year with my family. Just great. We didn't have to wait longer than 20 minutes for our table. The sever was knowledgeable and very polite. Food was absolutely out of bounds as usual. Pizza from the wood oven, the crust perfect !!!!

They update menu to keep it fresh but keep staple like chopped salad and Sicilian pizza. Even better now with nice movie complex next door. Waits can be a hassle but standard for good food.

Waited 15 minutes to be seated, another 5 before a server came to acknowledge us. We ordered pizza and salad. The pizza was cold and likely sitting a while. If you have pizza in the name and can't serve it hot in the restaurant. I'd say you should avoid this place and eat elseware!

CPK is right in between frozen Home Run Inn and the best pizza you've ever had. Not to say it's nasty or anything like that, but it wasn't anything spectacular. Their specialty drinks were good, and my food was decent. If you're looking for somewhere new to go for decent and reasonably priced food, maybe consider CPK.

Not a fan of how you are treated at this restaurant. Rude people, and the service takes too long. The lines are long for the quality of food. It seems as the years have come this place has been on the steady downfall. It used to be a great pizza place inside OakBrook Mall now it just seems very mediocore.

I am a recreation coordinator for an assisted living community and I brought a group of seniors with physical limitations to this restaurant. The server, Sabrina, was very kind and patient with our group and offered to do separate checks without us requesting it. The lunch duos were the perfect size for us and we enjoyed trying out the specialty... More
