We ordered this pizza for delivery. Delivery was quick and the pizza was hot. They did not skimp on the ingredients, which was a plus, but the sauce is a very sweet sauce. It was too sweet for us. I hate leaving a review that is less than stellar for something like this but feel other customers might want to... More

I've patronized this restaurant for more than 10 years. It was once good. No more. First, your staff is rude - not just rude, but nasty. The jerk who answers the phone should be fired immediately. And the teens who run your kitchen need to learn to cook or tossed out the door. The idiots you have working for you... More

This gelsosomos has a different menu than the one in Portage in reference to their pizzas. The sizes and ingrediants are totally different so I couldn't get what I was used to. Their prices are higher than the Portage store as well, I figured being owned by the same family and the same store, the menu would have been the... More

This is the only place for pizza. for me. The crust is not too thick, the sauce is perfect, the toppings include their own sausage and many more to chose from

Well obviously it isn't Chicago, it is Indiana duh... but seriously hats off for the effort as the service was great. The pizza however would be in my humble opinion, an acquired taste. The sauce seems to be quite sweeter than what I am accustom to. The sweetness took away from the other flavors of the pizza.

My favorites are the 5 cheese thin crust pizza (not cut like a traditional pie) & the Popeye pizza, which is spinach & cheeses, folded into a big calazone. I'm not a big fan of spinach but I love it & my hubby doesn't care for Pizza but loves it too. Great place to have parties too, I've had many... More

We love Chicago style pizza, and we were hoping that since we would be in fairly close proximity to Chicago while on vacation in Duneland, we might find a good one. We looked at all kinds of pizza places in the area online, but this was the only one that looked like it had Chicago style. We gave it a... More

Great prices, great pizzas. Good deep dish pizzas. I prefer Gino's East in Chicago but Gelsosomo is closer and very good also. I've eaten in a few times but mostly get carry out or delivery. Staff has always been friendly.

We "got the urge" for pizza while staying overnight in Chesterton, IN. We researched several pizza businesses (many didn't stay open past 8:30PM on a Saturday night!). They took our order via phone. The pizza's were ready before the timing we were told, yet they were fresh and hot. And very, very good. Friendly staff on site.

Thank Ddrw
