Lou Malnati's Pizzeria Restaurant Review

: Lou Malnati started his pizza operation in 1971 in the suburbs, and his sons, Marc and Rick, opened this location in the trendy River North area in 1986 to carry on the family tradition. Burnished wood, comfortable booths, high tables with stools and tile floors give the century-old building a traditional-upscale feel, which is enlivened with sports memorabilia that includes framed shirts of some of Chicago's biggest sports stars. This is a fine atmosphere in which to sidle up to one of the best deep-dish pizzas in the town where deep-dish pizza began. At lunchtime, the individual pan pizza is a hot item, as are the daily pasta specials. Try the butter-crust pizza, unique to Malnati's, or the chicken Marsala sandwich. Other locations.
