Become a part of a Chicago tradition 40 years in the making!

Bacino’s founder, Dan Bacin opened the first Bacino’s 40 years ago in the heart of Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Dan had been running a popular art-and-culture radio station and publishing a companion magazine when he decided to sell that business and open his own restaurant. After a great deal of research and advice from leading restaurateurs, he decided on the very competitive pizza business. After all, Chicago was a world class pizza market with over 3,300 pizza purveyors, but Dan’s mission was to use only the freshest and highest quality ingredients – fresh mozzarella, fresh vegetables, and even making his very own pizza sauce. Bacino’s became a great success topping AOL’s pizza pol and having the top selling pizza at the Taste of Chicago for many years.

From our guest to our employee’s at Bacinos we treat everyone as our own family. We are looking for energetic servers and bartenders with a warm welcoming personality and a passion to provide great service. We are looking for season and full time employees to join are team.
