Knew that the pizza would be as it ways it-- great deep crust and fantastic toppings. Have always been a great Chicago-area fan for 50-years. Sometimes we take a long weekend just to eat at all the fantastic restaurants. This trip we drove four hours in a big Uhaul with some family friends to move a grad student to Evanston,... More

Loved the pizza -- very helpful and friendly staff, not too long a wait. We'd go back for sure. The chocolate chip cookie pizza (with ice cream, whipped cream, etc) was delicious. The location is good, too, right on the edge of the Northwestern campus.

I had a thin crust veggie pizza that was excellent. The taste was well-balanced and satisfying. The young man at the counter was friendly and helped me make a selection for take out.

Loved our pizza here. First time, on a recent visit, recommended by locals. Would definitely go back next time. Service was also attentive without being intrusive.

We were here for a late lunch and the place was not crowded. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. The Pizza was very good, but the salad was great as well. We enjoyed people watching at the window and left very full and satisfied.

Nice clean place. We ordered the deep fish pizza. The pizza sauce is chock full of fresh tomato pieces and the sauce is a bit on the runny side. It has a definite tomato flavor. You can't really eat this with your fingers. It was very tasty but I prefer my pizza a little more firm with a more traditional... More

We fell into Lou Malnati's completely by happenstance: a local CVS employee told us the best deep dish in the area was Lou Malnati's. She was a godsend! This place delivers extraordinary pizza, offers a quaint atmosphere and provides lovely service on the side. Definitely try Malnati's!

I showed up without a reservation and a party of nine. We were treated well and quickly. Had a huge feast, both deep dish and thin crust. No one went away hungry!

Five hungry California football fans in need of the Deep Dish experience and we were not disappointed. I am sure there is raging debate and well defined preferences amongst the locals but Malinoti's did not disappoint.The family salad was excellent and enough for five. We had two large - one Pepperoni and the other mushroom - both excellent and there... More
