Connies Pizza In the Gold Coast $9.99 Sepcial

When we stopped in at the new Connie’s Pizza in the Gold Coast @ 1030 N. State it was apparent that this is not your father’s Connie’s Pizza! The first thing we noticed was the brick oven fireplace – which we later learned was imported from Italy.
The restaurant is beautiful as it overlooks the solarium in the Newberry Plaza Lobby. There are large tables, intimate booths and a very welcoming bar!
We were seated by a very welcoming enthusiastic hostess – she was adorable!
We were ecstatic to learn about the new LUNCH SPECIAL – available weekdays 11:00 am – 4:00 pm – it consists of:
• Individual wood fired pizza

• Connie’s side salad

• Drink

ALL FOIR $9.99 – INCLUDING TAX! To make the deal even more enticing Connie’s promises to have it ready in 5 minutes. We feel this is the BEST Lunch deal in the Gold Coast!

We loved the simplicity of the margherita pizza. The crust was good, had a nice bit of char on it, some good crunch, with the inside being delightfully ‘pillowy.’ We love the signature Connie’s sauce – sweet and full of fresh tomato taste. The fresh mozzarella and basil finishes the pizza perfectly.

They do not skimp on the meat on the personal sausage pizza – very tasty! The sausage was a bit more like meatballs than like a typically sliced sausage-that was great to us.

We loved ALL of the appetizers we sampled.

To sum up, great looking restaurant in a great location, super friendly employees, great fresh tasting pizza AND the best lunch deal in the Gold Coast!
