“Deffiently going back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

My fiance and I went here for a date night. Being new to the area we were not sure where to go, and the reviews led us to Lous LaGrotto. We had a great time!

We dressed pretty casual. I ordered a margarita over rocks special that they had going and it was very good!
We had the garlic nuggets as an appetizer and they were delicious, but if you are health conscious beware as those little things are not only delicious, filling but very greasy.

We had a deep dish pizza which we were wary of getting because we grew up in Chicago, but man it was good! Baked to perfection, ingredients were very tasty.

The service was decent, nothing spectacular but friendly.

If you have never gone, GO. If you had a bad experience, give them another shot because we sure will!

“Favorite Local Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Lous is by far our favorite Local Place to eat. The deep dish pizza is so good and filling. The garlic Nuggets are always a must have. The service is always so friendly whether you are dining in, carry out, or delivery. The chicken alfredo is also to die for.!! Also love the specials during football season!

“worth going back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I recently moved to the area. I am shocked at how bad the locals' taste is. Lou's is easily the best (non-chain) restaurant I've eaten at in Peru. The deep dish pizza is NOT Chicago style - it has a thicker crust and less cheese than a real Chicago style deep dish, so don't expect that!
It is definitely worth a trip back.
The one downside I had was that the music was so dad gummed loud you have to all but yell to have a conversation, so the place is overall pretty loud.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We were staying at Grizzly Jacks in Utica, Illinois and was desperate for good food because it does not exist there. I looked up a place to eat on Tripadvisor and made the 20 min or so drive to Lou's LaGratto. Great pizza, deep pan style not really the Chicago style deep dish. It was very good pizza. So glad we went there. Service was quick and the restaurant had a good atmosphere. Will go back if ever near Peru, IL.
