We're Chicagoans. We LOVE our pizza! Malnati's is our very favorite deep dish pizza around with it's chewy crispy buttery crust, perfectly seasoned red sauce and who doesn't love a slab of sausage the size of a frisbee to top your deep dish?! If you Have to watch your carb or calorie count the pizza would be hard to resist,... More

After visiting a carry-out only location we re-routed to the big converted house that is Lou Malnati's. We were promptly seated and the server was very friendly... we ordered the stuffed bread appetizer and omg...it was delish! We were warned about the 35 min wait time for the "Lou" (w/sausage) specialty pizza and it was well worth the wait! Being... More

Sat at the bar....bartender was great....subdued, but always attentive. Pizza takes a while (35 minutes or so, but, man, was it ever worth the wait. I got the Lou's Original...their "sauce" is actually more like crushed tomatoes....really very mild. I don't usually go for sausage pizzas, but I did this time and it was fabulous.....again, a great flavor, but pretty... More

My boyfriend surprised me with a date night here. The hostess took our pizza order before we were seated, and we had time to look over the menu and lobby. It was an old house, and had unique charm and atmosphere. We were seated upstairs. The casual fine dining atmosphere was cozy and well decorated. The table was neat and... More

Had trouble deciding today between two of our favorite pizza spots in Chicago so we went with the one closest to our hotel. Much to our surprise as we pulled in on a Thursday evening the line was outside the door with a 45 minute wait. We ordered early and found ourselves sitting at our table within 20 minutes. Still...

They have the best deep dish pizza. Cute place, it is an old house made into a restaurant. The staff is quick and friendly. Great place to gather with family and friends. Try the sheddar cubes for an appetizer!

We hadn't been in the Schaumburg restaurant before and it was under construction. It's in a house and it looked like they were adding on a big wing and a separate entrance for carryout. We got there early and quickly ordered our Lou's Special. We also had a cheese bread for an appetizer as the pizzas take 20-30 minutes to... More
