We visited and had two mediums, Classic and Lou's. Deep dish takes time, and growing up in Naperville, I appreciated the ambiance of the old fire station. Our swrvet was very attentive and great. Another guy, a big guy with a beard, seemed to busy to be social or crack a smile or give eye contact with others. The sausage... More

Went with a large group this past weekend with a lot of kids. Great food and service and they did a great job accommodating our large group. Loved the downtown Naperville location, a lot of shops etc. were close by.

I've been eating pizza for 50 years. There is none better. That is all. Deep dish is my favorite but have had lasagna on occasion, also outstanding

The deep dish is OK, but the thin crust they sent had to have been under a heat lamp forever and it was TERRIBLE. If it was my only experience with LM I'd never go again but the other in the area (the one north of Schaumburg) is very good.

While visiting in Naperville, I promised to take my son for authentic Chicago style deep dish pizza so off to Mainati's we went. Timed it perfectly and just beat the dinner time rush. Very busy place which indicated a good place to eat to me. The menu is huge offering many, many choices but it was deep dish pizza we... More

All though I'm a simple pepperoni girl there's nothing better than Lou's. We live 45 minutes away & if I could I would visit 2 times a week. I order it extra pepperoni, light cheese, extra tomato sauce. The chunky tomato sauce is addicting with the butter crust. Now that I reviewed I think I'll go for a pizza tomorrow

I'm not a native Chicagoan, but have visited multiple times. When I ask, what's the best pizza in Chicago, I'm told Giordano's or Lou's. I've found that if you like Giordano's, you prefer it over Lou's and vise versa. I found that to be true. I've tried both and prefer Lou's. The sausage spread over the bottom of the pizza... More
