Great lunch special - plain personal size is the best way to test the very tasty waters of Chicago's famed deep dish pizza - enjoyed the open air dining - nice wait staff - very busy lunch but was seated and served promptly.

I am a pizza snob having grown up near to Pepe's Pizza in CT. The pizza here blew me away. The thin buttered crust was amazing. The deep dish pie incredible. Will definitely be back when I'm in Chicago!

I tried a couple pizza places in Chicago like Pequods, but much preferred Malnati's. It is deep dish, but the dough isn't overly thick. A lot of it is toppings. I went with the sausage one that is on the menu and I'm glad I...More

We liked this pizza better than Giordano's. The sauce is a bit sweeter and the butter crust was tastier.

Yes, our pizza sauce contains chunks of tomatoes. If you do not want chunks of tomato, you can always request your pizza be made with our thin crust sauce (same sauce, just pureed a bit more so there are fewer chunks).
