“Iconic Deep Dish Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Lou Malnati's has been here for years, both in Naperville and throughout Chicago-land. Deep Dish Pizza..... the name says it all. Good, dependable, reliable. We've been several times and never are disappointed. In the summer they open the outdoor patio, so you have a great people watching spot. Families and couples.... all are welcome...

“Tasteful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

Being Italian,pizza is only "Napoli" style. Chicago style pizza is something different that can't be compared. I ate it for the first time on august and it was very good(i chose the pepperoni butter crust), especially the tomato sauce.

“The Best Pizza Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

This is THE place to experience the best Chicago-style deep dish pizza. There are other good pizza restaurants around, but Lou Malnati's is in a class by its own. They have several locations around the Chicago area and they ship frozen pizzas too.

“Good pizza. Great dessert.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014 via mobile

Met some friends here for dinner. I'm not from Chicago so I'm not really into the Chicago style pizza but they do serve a thin crust that was pretty darn good. My friend who lives here suggested to get the chocolate chip pizza dessert. I'm glad he did. Well worth the try and I'd definitely recommend

“Deep dish pizza with a butter flavored crust...delicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

As the story goes, an employee of Pizza Numero Uno (legendary deep dish pizza joint in Chicago) left and began his own restaurant; Lou Malnati's. This deep dish pizza chain serves up a great pizza at a good value. Be careful, as one or two pieces of this loaded pizza will fill the tummy.
