It was such a surprise to find my local Lou Malnati's offered such a delicious GF crust! The tactile tongue connection, along with the sauce and fresh toppings leaves me craving it from time to time!

Our family loves Lou's pizza and salads and the cookie desert is our favorite desert. Though deep dish pizza is popular we like the thin crust also.

Lou Malnati's is the flagship of "Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza." There are a couple close, but none better. Pretty clear cut. They also have tasty salads with the best (they make their own) 1,000 Island dressing I've ever had. Best advice, go there hungry.

This is our favorite pizza when we visit Naperville. We were tired and opted for delivery. Well, the pizza arrived cold and looked disgusting! The delivery guy brought it to our hotel in the box, with no insulated carrier. Really disappointed! What a waste of money....it wasn't cheap.

I was impressed by their service. We got a gift card from Lou Malnatis inviting us to come back and give it another try a month ago after my wife gave them a 4 star review(not even bad). After having an amazing pizza we tried to pay with it but because their gift card machine was not working they waived... More

Lou Malnati's is well know probably across the US from local Chicago transplants. Whether you like deep dish what they are known for or thin crust!! It's the best! We had great service and reasonably priced cocktails. It can also be ordered if your out of town through Taste of Chicago.

Enjoyed a classic sausage deep dish pizza with butter crust. Lou Malnati's has a thinner buttery crisp crust than their rival Giovani's. Delicious with three cheese blend. The restaurant is in a renovated firehouse. Nice decor and our server was very good.

You make a Lou Malnati's restaurant, of course. Lou's treats one to a snapshot of old Naperville, while providing some darn good pizza. The Malnati's Special features sausage, and we love the buttered crust. Malnati's is a "must do" on our Naperville list. (And they deliver, too. Finest kind for football watching.)

Each day they offer a lunch special of salad, individual pizza, and pop. It's the perfect amount of food and you get to enjoy their famous pizza. Fernando was our waiter and he was so nice and very attentive. This place gets very busy so avoid the peak times for a more enjoyable atmosphere.

I've been here in the past, along with Giordano's, Uno's, and several of the other classic Chicago Style pizza places, and man, I love them all! I was in over Christmas this year and stopped by Lou Malnati's for lunch with the family, and again, I was not disappointed! We each ordered personal pan pizzas - mine with a sausage... More
