• Food & Drink


Welcome to Himmel’s. When you walk into our restaurant, we want you to feel like you are at home. Our amazing wood-burning oven is the first of its kind in the city of Chicago. The oven is straight from Rome and has been making authentic pizzas and breads for more than 15 years. The flavor profile this culinary vessel brings to pizza is so spectacular; we just couldn’t let our other foods get jealous. So we started to experiment and found that our specials have been such a hit, we wanted to make them a more permanent fixture.

We hope you will try our succulent half-roasted chicken, or perhaps our hand-scored (tender on the inside and crispy on the outside) pork shank. Don’t miss our thick cut bone-in ribeye, seasoned to perfection. All of these dishes finished in our one of a kind oven.

Our wood-burning oven will still be churning out our famous Roman style pizzas made with the freshest ingredients, handcrafted and baked in a 700-degree oak burning brick oven. And our chefs will be crafting fresh made specialty pastas and salads for your enjoyment.
Sit back, relax, enjoy your meal and welcome to heaven on earth…Himmel’s.

A fun and tasty experience

Himmel’s is one of the last remaining pieces of authentic German fun in the once thriving German Lincoln Square neighborhood of Chicago, and after a fun filled day at the restaurant, I can only hope it sticks around for a while. I attended a special event with a buffet featuring some of Himmel’s best: Schnitzel, Pork Shank, Spätzle, Sausage, Sauerkraut, Potato Salad and more. And lets not forget the AMAZING Pretzel Bread baked fresh right on site!!!

As more German restaurants seem to be cutting back on the quality and authenticity of their food, Himmel’s food didn’t show any signs of cutbacks. Everything tasted fresh and homemade, though there weren’t too many unexpected twists on the traditional taste. I’m not a big fan of sauerkraut, yet on this plate every last bit was eaten. Same with the potato salad… yum.

The overall atmosphere of Himmel’s was great. Despite its small and packed atmosphere, there was no problem partying with live music and dancing. Himmel’s was filled to capacity when I went and the wait staff was friendly and attentive the entire time. They genuinely looked like they were enjoying their job, which translated to some good service.

Bottom line: I’ll be going back
