Try their crustless pizza! They bake a party of sausage as the crust for low carb or kept friendly diets. They've done this for a long time and it's wonderful! My daughter got a deep dish personal and loved it. The thin crust is good too. The sauce is mostly chunky tomatoes, but it's very good. Get the extra garlic,... More

We have been here numerous times and this place never disappoints! The best pizza around. We recently hosted an event in the private room and the food & service there was beyond excellent! The original Lou's pizza is the best, salads, pasta, & appetizers are all very, very good! You will continue to see us here. A++

Have the Chicago Classic! Just amazing. Such a great addition to the area. Not of fan of their thin crust. Stick with the pan pizza and a nice salad. The individual salad is enough for three!

Wanted to end the weekend right, so we called Lou Malnati's in downtown Naperville for delivery. The order came faster than expected. The Malnati salad was HUGE and very good, though we both thought the dressing was a little too sweet, My S-O had the BuffaLou wings, which she said were okay. The Lou pizza was excellent as always, but... More

The pizza was just ok the crust was too big, the sausage was in the patty form and I did not know I could have asked for crumple. The server was nice and she was always asking us if everything was ok that's good. Probably will not go back

First time here. We waited over 75 min for a table on a Saturday night. We arrived 6pm and ordered our pizza ahead of time at 6:10pm. Hostess admitted she goofed up. Two hungry kids and the pizza was good but nothing special. For $55 I don't think I'd go back. Disappointing experience.

Great pizza and pasta. Love the Lou pizza thin crust and the lasagna. I live near a carry out only shop so it's great when I just don't feel like cooking dinner.

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.
