Like most everything people have their favorites. This is ours for pizza. Consistently good, always hot with lots of toppings Lou pleases everyone. Just great pizza the way Chicagoans want it.

While visiting the with my son we went to get some Chicago style pizza. We were not disappointed. It was very busy but we were able to get a table within 40 minutes. Once we were seated the server was friendly and attentive. The deep dish pizza is the best!!! It has a wonderful buttery crust, is well topped and... More

Chicago deep dish pizza just the way I like it. This is the old firehouse, great outdoor seating. The salads are really delicious as well. I am old school as far as the pizza is concerned never straying far from cheese and sausage. My family and I have eaten here more times than you can imagine. Will always come back.

I especially liked the quaintness of the restaurant. Service was very cordial. The pizza was tasty, and it seems like an inviting place to hang out with friends and family.

I wanted a true Chicago pizza and my niece took us to this Italian eatery. They make their own butter crust pizza dough and make the best deep dish pizza. Lots of topping and they did not skimp on anything. We really enjoyed it. Even though they were busy for a Sunday night, the service was excellent.

We've eaten at Malnati's many times, usually we enjoy their pizzas but sometimes it's nice to pop in for a bowl of their homemade minestrone on a chilly afternoon. It's so quaint, being housed in a former fire station, in picturesque downtown Naperville. It's a popular place for young and more mature people.

Lou's pizza is deep dish without the doughy middle! The thickness is in the ingredients! Their crust is crunchy and tasty! My personal favorite and have lived in this area for 35 years.

If you are coming to the Chicago area to eat real pizza, this is the place. DEEP DISH at it's finest. Lots of crust, cheese and delicious toppings. Plus the malnati salad is an awesome side dish

My girlfriend and I went for our 1 year. I ordered "the Lou" and it was a sloppy flavorless watery mess. My girlfriend ordered a thin crust which also had no taste. I didn't eat the whole thing in the hope that it would be nice cold the next morning. It wasn't. We walked past Giordano's and we both wished... More
