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

I know many people that rave about this restaurant and I will not claim that they have bad food, but I can honestly say that it's nothing to write home about. Being from Chicago I guess I'm biased and a little bit spoiled when it comes to pizza and Italian beefs. If it's not a big deal to you and... More

Came here on a recommendation that it was better than Giordano's. That never came to fruition. The service here is poor and the food not as good as the place mentioned above. Will go to Giordano's from now on. They are the best in the area.

Coming to Chicago for the weekend, one thing we wanted to do was have Chicago style pizza. I had just listed to a podcast that mentioned the "fabulous" one they serve at Mulnati's in Elk Grove---and that's where we were going to be! Perfect! It was mid afternoon so only a couple of other tables filled. Our waitress assured is... More
