Went here while visiting family in Wicker Park, Chicago. One of few breweries located in Chicago.
The atmosphere was comfortable. I went at night where the setting was dark. A pretty big place with many tables. The tables are next to each other where two parties could be seated at the same table. A unique feel.
The beer selection was good while the food selection was as good as any other pizza place in the city. The food was decent. I have heard people rave about their pizza but I wasnt impressed. However I was impressed with the beer.
Had good service when I went. This place can fill up at night with long lines to get in, for a warning to those interested.

Piece is a must visit for out of towners. Everyone has to get over the idea that all Chicagoans only eat is deep dish. While you won't find an extensive beer list here you will find a small, but great selection of Piece brews. They have their regulars / year rounds (4-6) with a small rotation of seasonals and limited releases (2-3 beers).
It's always busy, but if you go for an early or late dinner then getting a table shouldn't be a problem. Avoid this place 5pm-8pm or you can put your name in and walk around Wicker Park while you wait. There are plenty of bars to get a beer at while you wait an unreasonably long time.
The beers are above average with a few standing out against others. Most of the brews are of the Belgian style (not my cup of tea), but they do some great stouts and porters. My personal favorite, Flatiron is a solid oatmeal stout with some chocolate notes.
The pizza is what really sets this place apart. Do not order a pepperoni and cheese with red sauce. It's a great pizza, but you have so many other options here that you're doing yourself a disservice. We always order the white pizza with mashed potatoes and bacon. Delicious.
Piece is a great spot for game days and I'd suggest going early then bar hopping in Wicker Park or down Division (a few blocks south) for a great sampling of Chicago night life.
