Best pizza in the Chicago area. Our server was absolutely the best server I have ever had. I wish I could remember his name. Their pizza sauce was by far the best I have ever had. It seems expensive but you get so much food for you money. If you get a chance try this place it is great.

I've had pizza in Rome, Naples, and Venice, Italy (and New York) yet I still prefer the Chicago deep dish served at Lou Malnati's! It is served hot and ready and it's a feast for the eyes and the taste buds! I even ate some cold the next morning and it was delicious. We arrived late at night, but they... More

Good place, but I've never understood why Chicagoans love Lou Malnati's, to me it's average, but I grew up in Chicago with great pizza. I guess if you've never had better pizza to compare it to? At Lou's, I prefer the deep dish over the thin crust. If people are judging this place by their deep dish, I can see... More

Sorry, but the pasta was not great. Even not for an Italian restaurant in the US. Go and visit Italy to learn more about making good pasta.

After debating whether to go to Giordano's, Gino East, or Lou Malnati's, none of which were close to our hotel, we chose to go to Lou Malnati's, based upon recommendations from friends and TripAdvisor. We had never had authentic Chicago pizza and didn't know what to expect, so we weren't sure what to order, but Heather was very helpful. We... More

The lunch offering at this restaurant is very good, pizza is the best in Chicagoland! Put this restaurant in Schaumburg, IL on your list as a must for lunch or dinner.

I feel this is the best of the Lou Malanti's chain At least in the Chicago Area These people practically wrote the book on Chicago style pizza The restaurant is suitable for families and families do come here Do not expect a quiet romantic dinner you won't get it The waitstaff is attentive and friendly And if you want pizza...

Always, I repeat, always have an eye open for The greater Chicagoland mom and pop pizzerias. There are many gems out there and include Lou Malnati's as real diamond. Great service and food The deep dish was near perfection Family friendly Diverse menu and full bar.

I am not even a pizza fan and I loved the deep pan pizzas. Great food. The other dishes like the salads lack imagination and are a bit plain. The dessert choices are limited but good. This restaurant is really not vegan friendly but great for lacto vegetarians. They also have gluten free options. There is parking. Decor and atmosphere... More
