We had an enjoyable Friday evening meal here highlighted by good service, great salads, and good pizza. Our group of 8 was seated in about 15 minutes but we ordered the deep dish pizza upon arrival to cut down the wait time when seated. Much...More

The Chicago-style pizza and the Malnati salad was excellent! The 6 slice pizza served 3 of us with some to take home. It is deep and rich! They use fresh mushrooms, not the canned type. It was saucy, but not too saucy. Allow approximately 50...More

We’ve had several other Chicago deep-dish pizzas, but this was our first visit to a Lou Malnati's. We stayed at a nearby hotel so we chose this “campus hangout” type location at the edge of the Northwestern campus. Walls are decorated with old Cubs posters...More

Malnati's has the best thick crust pizza in the Chicagoland area. Service is attentive. The sausage and tomatoes and cheese are of of high quality.
