Best pizza anywhere!!!! Order the deep dish. The crust is to die for. Nobody in the Chicago area makes a better pizza.

The last couple of times that we've eaten Lou Malnati's, we had it delivered. I LOVE their bruschetta, so that is always part of the plan. Generally, we get the bruschetta, a salad to share, and pizza. So yummy. AND you can order online and hardly have to talk to a human at all! Score! When I'm feeling a bit... More

When deliberately comparing places I order comparable foods... in this case, thin crust cheese pizza. It's perfectly fine but lacks flavor, particularly the sauce. Most will be satisfied but won't be thrilled with it. Good value for a downtown "Name" dining establishment. The service has been consistently excellent over a half dozen visits, and I'm picky about that. Nice atmosphere,... More

Went in for a quick lunch, knew it was mostly pasta and pizza, but told wait staff I needed gluten free. They made suggestions and also brought a gluten free menu

We decided to eat at Lou's one afternoon a few weeks ago. Pizza and salads were very good, specifically their salad dressings. Would recommend giving it a try. We were also in the midst of trying to find a place to host a party and since we enjoyed the food so much, we decided to see if we could have... More

This is possibly the best pizza in Illinois! Great place to dine in, especially in the summer when they open the front up. Good service and delicious pizza! Way better than Aurelio's in my opinion.

Pizza, pizza, pizza! The pizza is fabulous. Had both deep dish and thin crust. Both were excellent. There is really nothing to compare them to in Wisconsin. Would love to try all there types. Service is also outstanding. They handled our party of 18 without a hitch

Favorite pizza. . Best crust around. Always look forward to eating here. We often bring home a bottle of their Lou Malnattis salad dressing. Wish we lived closer!

Unfortunately, we never even made to the restaurant! We called days in advance to see if they would reserve an area during mid afternoon for our volleyball team families. We have approx 30 people and each family wanted to order separately (we have done this dozens of times at various restaurants over the years with the team.) They said that... More

Ask anyone in Chicagoland and they will have their strong opinions about who has the best Italian Beef and who has the best Deep Dish Pizza. To me, there's no contest. For Pizza, Lou's beats all the others, hands down. Why? It's the crust. It's all about the crust. I suggest getting the "butter crust" option for extra rich and... More
