Loved the large deep dish Malnati Chicago Classic, can't go wrong (3 adults, one toddler with left overs). Ymmy! Attentive service plus pre-ordered my pizza before arrival which shortened the wait (important with a 3 year old in tow). Mozarrella sticks as appetizer were delicious...More

Lou Malnati's serves authentic Chicago-style deep-dish pizza in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. The pizzas do take about 45 minutes to cook, so don't be in a hurry. Start off with their wonderful Lou's salad while you are waiting. Service is almost always friendly and...More

Great deep dish Chicago pizza. Takes about 35 minutes for them to cook your pizza, but it’s worth the wait. I also took a frozen pizza home with me and that was just as good as the one we ate in the restaurant. Service was...More
