“Great atmosphere and great pizza.”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

The pizza at Lou Malnati’s was great and I would recommend going to the restaurant. We went to the one on Well’s street and took the 66 Grand bus down to Well’s. It’s only a few blocks from Michigan Ave. The place is a nice small quaint pizzeria. The atmosphere is nice too and the staff was friendly.

“Lived up to the hype”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Pizza was delicious. (we ordered the Malnati classic). Also ordered the Malnati salad and it was SO GOOD!!! Service and atmosphere was great, although we were there later on a Tuesday evening so I can't imagine how crazy it is during the busy time and how long you might have to wait.

“Authentic deep-dish”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

The wait was about 45 minutes. Ambience was casual. Once seated, our order took about 20 minutes. We ordered their classic malnati's which had a full layer of sausage. This was a meat- lover's feast! It was rich and meaty. Although food was great, we had a hard time looking for our server whenever we needed her.

“Awesome Pizza, great staff”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

I was in town on business and sat at the bar to get a pizza at a somewhat slow time of day, the bar tender was awesome, recommended some favorites and then chatted with me while the pizza was cooking. The pizza is amazing, very good Chicago deep dish pizza! Highly recommend this place!

“Great Chicago Style Pizza”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

Excellent service. We were told in advance of the 30 minute wait for pizza. The Malnati's Classic sausage pizza was very good. But, the Malnati's Classic salad was awesome. Good pizza, good service. Good time.
