Perhaps it was our timing, 4:45 on a Saturday night, but I would have thought the service would be ramping up for the evening rater than switching to the night crew. That being said we we kind of lost in the shuffle. However when we mentioned our situation to a passing server, they were right on it. Set in a... More

Nice little parlor in the heart of Naperville that used to be the old firehouse. Za of choice when in the mood for deep dish. I prefer the crust and toppings here over other Pizza choices nearby. Great friendly fast service and good pizza. Salads are fresh and plentiful. Lively atmosphere. If busy and there is a long wait they... More

Wonderful fresh ingredient pizza! One of Chicagoland's finest. I would like it if they gave more toppping choices personally. I just love some pineapple on my pizza and they don't offer that. Otherwise it is great food! The Bruschetta is phenomenal!

Perfect spot for evening meetings with friends or family, the athmosphere is great, fast service and BEST PIZZA ever. Although after one slice I was always full, I... More

My first time in the Chicgago area and everyone says you must have deep dish pizza at Lou Malnattis. I tried it and can't figure out why it is so popular. The crust was hard on the edge and undercooked in the middle with no flavor. Meat and cheese were ok. Sauce was so bland it just tasted like a... More

I used trip advisor to find this pizza place and it did not disappoint. I sat at the bar and had great conversations with the locals and bartender! I ordered a personal original and it was delicious. I finished with teramisu ( which was also delicious). I can see why this place is so highly rates and will definitely eat... More

I'm sorry to say this "Used to be" my favorite Pizza place in the whole wide world! Unfortunately after the last 4 times they failed again. I grew up in Naperville and absolutely love Lou's over Giardano's anyday. Now I live in Raleigh, NC and when we go home to visit I always rave about Lou's. We asked for our... More

We enjoyed our deep dish pizza, but we enjoyed their Caesar salad even more. If you like a lot of crust and even more cheese and greasy sausage/pepperoni, you will enjoy this pizza. We generally prefer thinner crust, but it was a nice change of pace during our brief visit to IL. The wait was very long, but there's an... More
