“BEST PIZZA YOU WILL EVER HAVE”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Honestly, who amongst us has not eaten 3 or 4 million pizzas? Personally, there has only been one -- count 'em, one -- pizza I ever threw out after one bite: Costco in Albany CA. The Lou Malnati pizza will also stand out as The One: the best you will ever, ever have.

“Chicago deep dish pizza”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Family vacation and we had to have a deep dish pizza. Based on recommendations and Trip Advisor reviews we choose this restaurant. Decided on a delivery to hotel. Delivery was quick and all the necessary plates and utensils were included. Pizza was good and we enjoyed sitting around talking about our vacation that day

“Great Deep Dish”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

We had The Malnati Chicago Classic deep dish pizza and it was delicious. We did have to wait to be seated about 20 minutes. Make sure you have time to sit and relax, you don't want to be in a rush when you visit.
