Slyce Coal Fired Pizza Company offers an amazing pizza as well as other menu items. It takes time to fuel up a coal fired pizza, so no lunch hours, but it makes for a delightful dinner choice in Wauconda. The pizza crust is the perfect mid-ground between thin and thick, setting the stage for fresh ingredients that wow the taste buds. It isn't just the pizza that is incredible - try the artichoke dip, Italian stuffed mushrooms or lemon basil caramelized onion and herb wings. The coal-fired oven at Slyce Coal Fired Pizza Company makes all the difference.

Speaking of fresh, look at the fresh herb garden on the patio which makes the patio seating fragrant and relaxing. From the delicious and unique small plates to the delicious tiramisu for dessert, it would be difficult to find a better place to dine than Slyce Coal Fired Pizza Company.

Food took forever to come to the table. Given 90 minutes and food barely made it in time

We had a 7:15 reservation for 6 - before we even sat down, we were told we had 90 min. We had gotten drinks at the bar, so when the server came over for drinks, we were already set. He came back 15 min later and we ordered an appetizer, and 10 min later he took our entree order. Most of us ordered pizza or salad. Our food entrees arrived about 40 minutes later, our appetizer never arrived - we asked that is just be cancelled - no apology or recognition that we never got it. One salad order never came, until a manager checked in with us and she ended up bringing it out. The pizzas were good, but $19 for a 12" pizza with a poor level of service is the reason we will likely not visit again. The overall restaurant was not overly busy, but the kitchen was slow and the service was not good.

Pizzas are always great. Try one of theirs or build your own. And I highly recommend the Sicilian Salad. I order it every time!

We had a great experience at SLYCE. It was our first time at this restaurant but it will not be our last. We were a group of 7, celebrating our grandaughter's 13th birthday, so our group included 3 kids and 4 adults. The kids all ordered their own pizza picking out the toppings that they each wanted. We shared a taste of each pizza but still had some leftovers to take home. Our server was professional and attentive. The food came to the table without much of a wait. We enjoyed the restaurant very much.

I have been going to Slyce for years and usually love it. The pizza toppings seemed smaller than usual and the sauce tasted different sort of tangy. I did ask for the crust to be well done but it wasn’t.

Had a 7:00OM reservation and we were seated immediately. Waiter quickly came to our table to introduce himself and take our drink order. We had the rosé sangria which was light and refreshing. Next we shared a Sicilian salad for two. Great salad and it’s ingredients were fresh and no one ingredient overpowered the other so you could taste each ingredient and how they melded together. Finally we shared a pizza with pepperoni, sausage, and mushrooms. Again a nice melding of flavors and just the right amount of cheese and sauce so one could taste all the ingredients and was not overfilling. Our waiter did a great job taking our order and checking up on us. Great dinner!

Whenever I have a special occasion I think of SLYCE. Gettig together with friends and family is easy there. Wonderful Menu, people, food, Pizza, friendsly, lively but not overbearing. During the beginning of the pandemic it occurred I could order my favorite Sicilian Salad and a #3 Sausage and Pepperoni Coal Fired Pizza to pick up or deliver. This is a place I WANT to be open when restrictions so I ordered most every week for my home or to take to friends. SO glad they are still around and ready to serve it up!!

Another great meal at Slyce! Aiden was our server. He was terrific. Had the meatball plus 1/2 Sunday salad as an appetizer plus the number 5 pizza. Enough for us to enjoy for lunch the next day! Love their pizza!

Service was great and I felt safe in the environment with everyone wearing masks. The red sangria at Slyce is so good - I get it every time. I had the Nonna's meatballs and salad appetizer as my meal and still took 1/2 home. The meatballs are delicious - almost better that the ones I make at home. The salad is so good but I do wish it was served differently. It is piled so high that I ended up spilling a lot of it in my lap and on the table when I tried to get some with the tongs. My husband had his usual - the #6 pizza with eggplant and goat cheese. It is always good. Their crust is so crispy! My husband was disappointed that they did not have Peroni beer on tap. We brought two friends who had never been there before. They shared a salad and a a custom pizza and thought it was wonderful. Lastly, the Tiramisu was soooo good. We will be back.

We come back over and over again as we love everything at Slyce. The lemon chicken wings are a favorite. The salads are out of this world....1 salad is plenty for a party of 4. Recently we tried the Sicilian and it was a winner! Top it off with a few pizzas and you are in for a treat.
We opted for the cannoli's this time around and they were top notch, flaky exterior and so very good!

The salad and pizza at Slyce was amazing! Great flavor! The service was extraordinary also. Nice ambiance and private booth. Only thing I didn’t like was music lol (old tunes like Frank Sinatra) I think it was due to Valentines Day.
