Best chicago style pizza ever. From the crust to the sauce, a really great pie. Service was fantastic and friendly. My son even hit the wait staff with a paper football and they laughed. Thanks for a great evening.

Deep Dish with the sausage patty is the only way to go. Thin crust is ok but you really only go here for a good ol fashion Chicago Deep Dish Pie!

We were a party of 2 adults and a 1 year old. We had the Malnati special and a pepperoni pizza. Service and food were both great. The butter rust was a must. We also ordered a kids meal which was fantastic. It had chicken nuggets, a slice of watermelon, a slice of honeydew and a pile of grapes. Perfect... More

This place is absolutely iconic!! However it is extremely busy even on a weekday, we visited on a Tuesday night and had over an hour wait for two people.

Lots of indoor seating but a little noisy inside. People line up during dinner hours every day. Our recommendation is the Lou pizza, regular crust, not thin. And... More

Our daughter says Malnati's for pizza to we ordered and picked it up to eat at home. The restaurant is busy so pick up was a great way to enjoy the food and spend time with family. We bought 4 different pizzas for our large group and they were all wonderful.

Lou Malnati's is consistently great Chicago Style pizza in a fun atmosphere. The pizza is great, the salads are huge and the spinach bread is amazing. They have a nice selection of craft brews and a full bar. Order the Malnati Chicago classic so you can enjoy that wonderful butter crust and the Italian sausage.
