The Best

I have eaten at Lou's on many occasions. Anytime someone comes to town and mentions pizza, Lou's is where I take them. Don't ask me about anything but their deep dish, it is fantastic, they beat every other pizza place hands down.

I've always been a fan of Giordano's deep dish pizza. But I heard so much about this place in down town Naperville, I decided to give it a try. I was hoping to have another good find to satisfy my deep dish crave, but this place turned out not to be one. I did not find the amount of cheese... More

The best pizza ever! EVER!! The breadsticks are good, the pizza is the bomb and flip for the extra few bucks and get the cookie pizza and share with the family. We got seated relatively quick but we also showed up around 4:30 pm. Any later and you will wait, but unless you are starved, it will be worth it.... More

While in town on business I decided to fill my craving for some real Chicago Style pizza. I have to admit I was a Gino's East guy, but I have to say the Lou Malnati's is my new favorite. The Malnati's Classic was fantastic. Hot and fresh. I will be back next time I am close to a Lou's.

The best Chicago style pizza of all of them. The butter crust is by far better than any other pizzeria in Chicagoland.

Man, what great pizza! The service was a little off the evening we went, however the pizza made up for it. We had the Chicago Classic

Lou Malnatis is a Chicagoland gem of an Italian restaurant. It's noted for its deep dish pizza and its Malnati's special salad. They have several restaurants in the Chicagoland area and have both eat-in and take-out operations. The Naperville store is housed in the old Naperville Fire House #1, a great downtown naperville location.

Lou's pizza is the best! We had an extra large cheese and large sausage & mushroom which was a hit with the grandskids. The thin crust is very tasty and a "I'm go back there anyone" atmosphere.

SCRUMPTIOUS! First time in the Chicagoland area and have been repeatedly told to try Lou's pizza. I ordered an hour ahead of time and I still had to wait 15 mins when I arrived but wow was it worth it.

Whether you select the deep dish or the thin crust, you're in for a special treat! Wonderful, fresh ingredients and fantastic taste will keep you coming back for more. Don't forget to try some of the other great food while you're there
