Great pan pizza

Son now lives in a different state. He insists we eat here every time he visits. Only wish they allowed dogs to sit with owners at the outside tables. I have actually ordered Lou Malnati's pizzas delivered to my son in his state through UPS or the Post Office or whatever the restaurant uses.

The variety and flavor of the food at Malnati's is very good. A number of the entrees I've had were less spicy than Italian food I've had elsewhere, but the variety provides lots of choices. Schedule your visit before prime dinner times. They don't take reservations and the huge popularity of the restaurant means the wait is enormous once you're... More

Our family has been eating Lou Malnati's pizza since the early 70's, in the Chicago loop, in the Elk Grove, and Naperville restraunts, and have had take outs from Bloomingdale and Naperville 95 St. If you like deep dish pizza you got to try a Lou's. They also have great salads, try the Lou's Sweat Vingerette salid dressing, and thin... More

Whenever I think of a pizza night out with the family, Lou's is always on my go-to list. Their deep dish is wonderful - especially "The Lou". However, recently I've discovered a favorite salad at this downtown Naperville restaurant - the Malnati! It's now my favorite pizza & salad restaurant! I also work in Naperville and Lou Malnati's is a... More

There are lots of great options for Chicago Style deep dish pizza, but Lou Malnati's is the best there is. Their crust is awesome, cheese delicious and toppings always fresh. There is always a line at this place for a reason.

Heading home from Spring Break in New Orleans / Gulf Shores - remembered how much we loved the Malnati's downtown Chicago. Detoured to Naperville - awesome experience. If I had it to do over, I would call ahead and do the indoor skydiving on the way through. Had a fantastic pizza, cheese garlic bread, then headed downtown to the popcorn... More

I have tried several different pizza places in Chicago and I have been disappointed. Even Giordanos disappointed me. Lou Malnati's really hit it on the head though. They have great little personal deep dish pizzas which is great for a group where people don't all like the same thing or if someone is allergic to anything. I got the personal... More
