About Us

The Uno brand has a vibrant history.

  • Ike Sewell develops Deep Dish Pizza at Pizzeria Uno

    Ike Sewell was a former University of Texas football player who was born in Wills Point, Texas, 50 miles east of Dallas, and grew up in San Antonio. Sewell moved to Chicago and fell in love with its many taverns and restaurants. With Ike’s team, Pizzeria Uno created a unique style of pizza that would stand out from the thin-crust pizzas commonly found in New York, and they delivered! Apart from deep-dish pizza, Pizzeria Uno also offered (and continues to offer!) a variety of other menu items including thin-crust pizza, pasta dishes, burgers, sandwiches, and appetizers.

  • Opens 2nd Pizzeria Uno restaurant at Wabash & Ohio

    This location is situated in the heart of downtown Chicago and further solidified Uno’s reputation as a beloved destination for our iconic deep-dish pizza. The Wabash and Ohio location became a bustling hub for locals and tourists alike who were drawn to the freshly baked deep-dish pizza and the inviting atmosphere of the restaurant.
