A home town favorite

My husband had never had been here, so we made it a point of having dinner here while in town. It was a Monday night, and maybe since school was out, it was packed! We had a short wait to be seated. They were very crowded and had many large groups with children there, so it was very noisy and... read more

I've been going to Lou Malnati's restaurant for several years. It is a must visit for friends from out of town. On top of the great pizza and salads is an atmosphere in a converted fire station with a great outside dining area. I suggest ordering the family salad and the Lou special pizza, thin crust.

The Lou's in Naperville brings the best pizza in Chicago to Naperville. The restaurant is nice enough, with airy outdoor seating. If you are considering getting pizza in Naperville, do yourself a favor and get Lou's.

My 14-year old daughter and I enjoyed our dinner. I LOVE pizza; it's my favorite food. I gave up bad carbs two months ago to tone my body a little more, so I didn't eat a majority of the crust. Destiny got personal deep dish and I got a personal thin crust. Both were absolutely yummy! The dining room is... More

We live in Md and once a year visit friends in Ill. Lou Malnati's pizza is consistently very good. Good salads too. Worth even a wait to be seated.

Excellent Chicago-style pizza. Eat outside at the Naperville location to enjoy the summer weather and some people watching

Our fist trip to Naperville, we stumbled upon this gem! It wasn't even 5pm on Saturday evening and this place was packed. We were seated within minutes. We ordered cheese bread and a Malnati salad. Both were delicious, the salad was fantastic and very large for one person. Order to share with 2-3. We all ordered our own pizzas, the... More

I've had deep dish pizza at several stores in the Malnati chain but this one is the absolute worst of all of them. The butter crust tastes rancid and sour and is never done in the middle. The other stores in this chain are head and shoulders over this store--and the parking here is ridiculously inadequate due to the location... More

Cool place to gorge on think, stuffed deep dish Chicago style pizza. Lou's restaurant is the old Naperville Fire Dept, so of course, it is decorated as such. Bunker gear, garage doors and yes,the fire pole. What old firehouse would be without? The pizza was hot,gooey and delicious! Would go back in a Naperville minute. Make sure you are hungry,... More

We were former Giordano's lovers till we tried Lou's. Get a deep dish Lou. You'll be doing yourself a favor. It's delicious and lighter fare than the other casserole like competition. We get the low-fat cheese to balance out the buttery crust. Delicious!
