We take frozen empanadas for the kids's school lunches. San Telmo Carne is a winner. They love them! The pizza is great too. And the location is great next to Krannert - quick dinner before the shows.

I LOVE this place!! Favorite pizza in this area! They have great specialty pizza and also the classics, as well as empanadas. My favorite is the spotted goat which has tomato and goat cheese on it. The slice is bigger than my head and has been great quality every time I visit. They also deliver until 3am so what more... More

Very popular place with students. They have thin pizza with various toppings by the slice, and the slices here are generous, and very reasonable for the price. Limited seating inside, but its best when the weather permits to sit outside.

I bought a pizza on Sunday night without big expectations, but the taste was really good! Easy to order by Internet, quick time to make the pizza and on time as planned in the order. I really recommend this place

The empanadas are fresh and full of creative and tasty fillings. One is the perfect size for a snack, three is a meal. The pizza is also very good, but the empanadas are special.

When I took a bite of my goat cheese, tomato, and mushroom pizza, I almost cried it was so good. The crust is not too thin, not too thick, and the ingredients are fresh and blend perfectly together. I have lived all over the world, all over the United States, and have traveled to every continent except for Antarctica. I... More

In the midst of the University of IL is this great pizza place. It is always busy and offers a wide variety of delicious pizza. There is both indoor and outdoor seating and pizza by the slice.

Good pizza. Above average in price. Below average in cleanliness. Decent though. Try it if in the area.

Manolo's has AWESOME gourmet pizza and their crust is delicious and homemade. One slice is perfect for a cheap lunch. My favorite is the Spotted Goat (salivating as I write). Their "barbecued meats" pizza is also delicious, and I'm usually not into really meaty pizzas. The curry pizza was also surprisingly good.
