Welcome to Corniciones (Cor-Nee-Cee-O-Nees) in Antioch, Illinois from the Kaliakmanis Family!
In 2019, we wanted to bring something unique and different to our amazing community. Everybody loves Pizza, but we did not just want to be another pizzeria serving the same style of pizza found throughout the Chicagoland market. Both of us were born and raised in New Jersey and thought it would be really great if we can bring a NY Style of Pizza to Antioch like we grew up with. A Pizza that is hand tossed, topped with premium ingredients and baked in stone ovens... A delicious pizza that we can be proud of to serve in our community and the response has been awesome. Even staunch Chicago style pizza fanatics love our pizza and we promise you will too! Like our Pizza? You will love our handmade Calzones and Strombolis. Made and baked by hand from scratch, our calzones and strombolis are outstanding.
It did not stop there. What if we can bring a NY Style Cheesecake to Antioch too? We dug up an old family recipe that was widely used in diners throughout NY and NJ back in the old days by our family of bakers. It was a massive hit then, and it is a massive hit now. Big and Tall creamy slices, painstakingly made by hand, and baked on premises. You can get it right here in Antioch! But hurry, they sell out quick!
Our motto is simple... Whatever makes it to our menu has to be great. We have delicious appetizers, salads, sandwiches, authentic calzones and strombolis, pasta dishes, and a full bar.
We now have a private gaming lounge with 6 slot machines and we pride ourselves on our guests playing in a clean and safe environment and having access to great service to enjoy cocktails or food while you play.
Check out our Bar for a delicious cocktail and don't forget to try a seasonal bucket of fun!
In August of 2023 we have now expanded to include an Ice Cream Parlor with over 18 delicious premium quality Ice Cream flavors with locally sourced Ice Cream from the Brown Cow Creamery. We will also feature sundaes, milkshakes, and malts.
We have been residents in Antioch for over 20 years. All 4 of our children have been born and raised in this wonderful community that we are so proud to be a part of. We cherish all of our guests and we pride ourselves on great food and great service. Stop by and visit. We promise you will not be disappointed!
