Ate at Lou Malnati's with a large party. Wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Forgot to bring out my drink. Pizza was delicious and well-done. Wait for food was reasonable. Waitress gave the entire table one check and individuals had to split up the check by hand. Apparently there is a system limitation, according to the waitress. The overall pleasant experience was tarnished by this check fiasco.

So glad our concierge recommend this place

It is our first time here in Chicago and my husband and I really wanted to get a Chicago style pizza so we went down to the concierge and she recommended this place and we were so glad she did. This pizza was amazing and we ended up bringing it back with us to the hotel bc we got a medium and we could only eat two slices but did not want to waste it and we even ate it cold the next day. :-)

Editorial review from Citysearch

This is a wonderful restaurant with delicious pizza and it has a great atmosphere. I especially like the outside patio section that you can visit on warm days. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Best pizza in Chicago

This pizzeria is by far the best in Chicago. The tomatoes are fresh, the calamari is fried to perfection. The wait time is super long, but totally worth the wait. I order for pick up after waiting over one hour!!

Great Pizza. I wouldn't choose thick crust except here. Even when you get the pizza loaded you get a nice crispy crust. You have a good wait while it bakes, but you can order ahead so it's done when you get there.

They're thin-crust is to die for!

I'm quite the pizza snob @ this point and I simply love their thin-crust. Even the simple cheese thin-crust is absolutely de-lish!!!
