The deep dish pizza was pretty good. We had one with spinach, one with sausage and vegetables. The crust was a little soggy after sitting for a few minutes, but the flavor was great. The service was very good!

Good Italian food in a great family atmosphere. The linguini w/ clams is worth the drive. We were there with a dozen family members from 5 to 60 and all had a good time and enjoyed the food and service

First of all, if you don’t like your pizza deep-dish, don’t come to Louisa’s. Deep-dish is the only way this place does pizza, and it does it well.

The crust provides a crispy foundation for the cheese, sauce, and other toppings. I prefer sausage; a little milder than I like, but still very tasty. The pizza could use a little more cheese, but it’s not skimpy.

The ambience is what I would call “better neighborhood”—not real fancy, but not plain & dull. (Technically, not in an actual neighborhood, but in a commercial strip along Cicero Avenue; still the feeling truly is “neighborhood”.) The tables are closer than you might find at other restaurants, but not uncomfortably so. Like many neighborhood-style establishments, there is a predominate bar running along one side of the dining room, but, thanks to the new smoking restrictions, the air is clear of smoldering tobacco leaves.

The price is average for the style of pizza, and the service is pretty good.

From what I’ve gathered, the pastas and other creations are also tasty, but I cannot speak from experience. I go to Louisa’s for the deep-dish. And so should you.

We have changed to getting double sausage as they are a little skimpier with it but this is the best oizza bar none. The crust, the sauce and the wonder ful sausage are to die for. We have to limit ourselves to once every quarter or we would never be able to lose any weight as we love it so much. It may be a bit pricy but it is worth it. We do order from home and then eat it there. Makes people envious when it is crowded. Pastas are also excellent but the pizza is our love. It is very filling - we order a large to take some home but usually can't finish more than 2 pieces.

Have been going to Louisa's for many years because we love the pizza. The service was always poor but now the servers and family members hanging around are down right rude. For the price of the pizza and the rude severs we won't be going back.
