One of the best pizza's in Chicagoland

Take an old Firehouse, install a big bar and kitchen, leave the entire ambience of the Firehouse, but add a ton of tables. Now start cooking some of the best pizza anywhere - now you've got Lou's!

A great Chicago pizza from a great Chicago pizza family. This is quintessential stuff. Deep dish or thin crust? You have to go deep dish at Malnati's. The crust, the sausage patty, all the cheese and a very nice red sauce. What else do you need but a cold beverage and a take home box, because you won't finish the... More

Pizza and salads are great. Went for lunch, it was excellent. Service was fine and we didn't have to wait. Dinner wait's can be long and not always by tine but by size of party. I love the pizza crust, one piece of deep dish is filling. I always end up taking half home, it reheats well.

It was good pizza. Not great pizza. I had heard the house salad dressing was incredible. It was OK. Just OK.

I've eaten in the restaurant several times, but I ordered take out in August. Whenever I order take out its for a thin crusted pizza which I love. I always purchase a couple of frozen pizzas also. If you follow the clear directions on their frozen pizzas, they are great! They also ship frozen pizzas which my daughter loved when... More

I visited this place with family. My child really enjoys Italian food. We were in downtown Naperville and decided to give this place a try. I have heard many good things about it. The food took a long time and the easiest of the entrees was my child's and it came out last. My child was not very happy. The... More

I was told I had to try Lou Malnati's pizza in Chicago. This was one of the closest sit-down restaurant Lou Malnati's, and this location is great! The pizza was incredible!!! This location is in an old firehouse, and Naperville is charming. I would love to go back and explore Naperville some more, and have this pizza again!

We had 2 kinds of wonderful pizza!!! The Thick crust with the Buttercrust was outstanding & well worth the extra $.75! And the thin crust was great too! Great meal and worth the trip!

We ate here for lunch on a Saturday. We were seated right away and our server was very friendly. We ordered the Classic - which is sausage, tomatoes and cheese. It takes about 30 minutes for the pizza to be made. The pizza was good. It was a deep dish pizza - and the tomatoes make it a little watery... More
