We went to this place at the recommendation of a friend. There was a large table before us, but we were still served very quickly. The food was delicious and the service was great. I would go here again!

In Chicago for a wedding and Lou Malanottis was recommended as "The Best Deep Dish Pizza". It did not disappoint. The salad for one served 2 and Hugo, our server, was attentive and courteous. Great experience!

There is another deep dish chain in Evanston -- you know which one I mean-- but the service at Lou's is far above that of the other. Very friendly staff who actually talk to you, are knowledgeable, don't hand you the standard and rather stupid...More
