I got Lou Malnati's delivery while I was in the Naperville area, and was totally blown away. The deep dish style is hard to get right, but they have perfected it. There is a lot of cheese, but it is so creamy and rich. The cheese makes it, but the buttercrust is a close second to the cheese. I will... More

Wait time is so long. Over hour between waiting to get seated and actually bringing out our pizza. The hostess was so scrambled. Asked us questions then start conversation with girls next to her. Trying to multi task and didnt seem like she could. This is a very busy place. So much commotion. Loud place. Our waiter was so nice... More

I'm not from Chicago so don't often get the deep dish pizza so tried it here as the restaurant is so highly rated, and it did not disappoint. We ordered their signature pizza which was sausage and tomatoe sauce and it was excellent!! The waitresses keep an eye on you and cut and dish out the pizza when you're ready... More

Was in Aurora for a wedding and wanted to find a great Chicago pizza close by. TripAdvisor always helps us find the hotspot!

The staff at this location is first class and spot on. We came in with 25+ baseball players and family members for dinner and they welcomed and accommodated us with no issues. They offered us a package that could not be beat especially with teen boys. $9.65 per person all you can eat pizza and included drinks. For an additional... More

We had the pizza chip and dip appetizer. I don't think I've ever had hummus with giardiniera on it before so that was different. The other dips were good and very garlicky so I'll definitely keep the vampires away tonight! For the main course I had the Malnatis house salad with balsamic vinaigrette. Lots of diced tomatoes, fresh mushrooms, olives... More

Everyone has their favorite Chicago-style pizza, mine is Lou Malnati's. Not only is their pizza wonderful, but so is the Malnati's salad. The best part - there are always leftovers! When the weather is nice, there's nothing better than sitting outside.

I had a gluten-free pizza and my daughter had a deep-dish and they were both great, but the wait was crazy long! We were told that the wait would be 30 minutes but that they could take our pizza order so it would be ready when we were called for our table. After 45 minutes we asked what was going... More
