Description: Going ten years strong with a menu designed to make mouths water and a location that embodies Gainesville's Downtown area, Big Lou's NY Style Pizzeria comes from humble beginnings. As many local start-ups do, Lou's developed into the reputable pizza spot it is today through a patient process. Lou Wynn, or "Big Lou" himself, is originally from South Florida but was no stranger to Gainesville. Graduating from the University of Florida with a degree in Health Science, Lou eventually decided to pursue the food industry. He was so inspired to build up his own restaurant (with the help of his supportive wife, Mary) that he was willing to do whatever it took to make it work - and even went as far as selling his car to pay for the original costs. Biking to work for the first few months of business is a whole new level of dedication... Nearly one decade and thousands of pizzas later, Lou's is constantly growing (currently under renovation!) While staying true to its warm and welcoming hometown roots. With a close group of team members, fun atmosphere and fresh ingredients that make our variety of menu items so satisfying, we promise any Lou's experience to leave you happy, full, and excited to come back again.

This pizza place was very quaint. The wait staff was very friendly. We didn't have to wait long for a table. But above all the pizza was really great! I couldn't eat all of mine and I couldn't wait to eat the leftovers later! I would definitely eat here again.

This place rocks and portions amply. You will have food to take home, or a new baby calzone will be rocking your tummy until the morning comes. Eggplant parm is also a winning dish. Eat here.

Bathroom is funky! Servers are dirty looking and cooks also need a bath and or shower!

Good pizza (get it with eggplant!), decent beer selection, and surprisingly wonderful curly fries. Nice big patio, and 9 times out of 10 the service is great.
