We ordered several pizzas for delivery. As far as I could tell, they were all absolutely delicious! Classic Chicago style pizza...

“good deep dish”
Reviewed August 7, 2010

I realized I prefer stuffed pizza over deep dish but this is another story ;) Lou Malnati's Pizzeria is a very good place to enjoy deep dish! The staff is friendly, the place is very well-maintained, the food is excellent, the surroundings are nice. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

“Only if you like deep dish”
Reviewed December 12, 2009

If you're a fan of the dish, this the pizza you want. Skip Gino's East (not bad, but not Lou's). Don't bother with the thin crust.

“hits the spot pizza”
Reviewed October 19, 2009

second trip to Evanston and second time getting LM's pizza. It's good. Deep dish with tomatoes on top of the cheese. Nothing extravagent. Just good recipe and fresh ingredients. It's a bit pricy for pizza and be prepared to wait . Parking is really difficult on any of the nearby streets.
Staff are friendly. took two frozen pizza's home for some italians from Boca and they liked it.
