We finally got to a Lou Malnati's

Having tried all the other local chains on our list, we finally got to Lou Malnati's. The Cheese pizza was very good with a sweet tomato sauce that really made it tasty.

The cheese deep dish pizza is great. We ordered a small (feeds 2-3) of us because we knew we wanted dessert. It was delicious. The base was not what we were used to but tasty all the same. We had tiramisu for dessert but it was not enjoyable. It had been frozen and was not thawed properly when they served... More

A wonderfully casual dining with delicious choices of deep dish (or thin--really?) pizza. Tucked into a residential/college neighborhood, it offers friendly service and great Italian choices. Also speedy delivery if you want to order out.

This is my favorite pizza in the world! I usually order two- three different types: cheese and sausage thin crust, green pepper, mushroom, onion thin crust, and deep dish spinach and sausage. We like it so that we will order a few time a month. It is always piping hot and consistent in quality. Great for take out too!

Don't forget to sign up their email list to get a free appetizer coupon (with $20 or more order). As always, great deep-dish Chicago style pizza!

My wife and I chose this restaurant reluctantly and were pleasantly surprised when it exceeded our expectations. The staff was friendly and efficient, our waitress advised us to share a salad rather than order individual ones and she was so right--the regular-sized salads are enormous; I'd like to see the family salad. My wife enjoyed the minestrone soup and I... More

Lou Malnadi's is probably the best pizza in Evanston. There thin crust is good and so is there deep dish. I always have it delivered to my house, so I don't know anything about the staff, but the pizza is always delivered on time. Right now I'm traveling the world for a year and sometimes my family and I miss... More

Lou Malnati's handles a lot of large catered events for us and our experiences has always been good. Our experience during our last event was no exception. The various types of pizza and the salad that was delivered to us were great!
