This place rocks for Pizza! Whether it's the thin crust or deep dish you can't go wrong at this old firehouse restaurant.

Great pizza! Great atmosphere -- especially in the summer. Come to Downtown Naperville and enjoy a day of shopping and end the day with some pizza at Lou Malnati's. Get your name in early, sometimes the wait can be long -- but well worth it!

Traveling through, we were brought to Lou Malnati's and we're glad we stopped. This pizza is amazingly good - we tried a couple of the recommended chicago style pizzas and both were fantastic! The staff was attentive, not obtrusive and atmosphere unpretentious and nice. If you get a chance, go... the locals define what is good and this was definitely... More

There are two good Chicago style pizza places that are just unmatched anywhere. Giordano's is one and Lou Malnati's is the other. Try "The Malnati Chicago Classic" - buttercrust with a layer of sausage buried in the pizza itself and then topped with tomatoes, your choice of toppings and gobs of cheese. Seriously ... you gotta try it!

Classic Chicago deep dish pizza is available and a local favorite here. Thin slice pizza is good as well. Located in downtown Naperville. Other menu items are so- so. Service is good. They do a large carry out business on Friday nights!

Picked up to go pies because the kids were too fussy to dine in. About $50 for 2 large incredible pizzas. Better than the classic Chicago pies we've had in the loop.

Just sent a "to-go' box to my brother in TX. He craves the thick crust and tomato sauce. One of our family favorites for pan pizza. Pizza takes a while to cook so try one of their fresh salads- they are huge. Long waits on weekend nights. I suggest put your name in and walk around and enjoy downtown Naperville.... More

Pizza are very good. Great taste and flavor. Generous on the toppings. Service is good. Parking can sometimes be an issue in downtown Naperville. Chocolate chip Cookie pizza with ice cream is a must for dessert.

This is one of our favorite pizza places in the area. This deep dish pizza not all crust, it is mostly toppings. The sausage is chunky Italian sausage and excellent tasting. Their salad is very good as well. Get there early or expect at least a 45 minute wait. They also have frozen pizzas that you can take home for... More

Great Atmosphere. Everyone loved the "Lou" Pizza and the awesome crust. One large pizza was enough for all four of us and the mixed platter appetizers were delish! We really enjoyed it. The place gets packed thought for dinner, and there are huge lineups, so prepare for that.
