Very cool place for both college students and families. Loved the atmosphere, absolutely loved the pizza, and enjoyed the "semi-downtown, semi-college campus" location. Some of the best pizza I've ever had! Won't hesitate to return and definitely recommend the place!

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.

Service was friendly and pizza/salad/wings and cheese bread were fantastic! Lots of leftovers some had it packaged in 5 different boxes and handed out to the homeless we encountered on our walk back to the hotel!

Traditional Chicago-style pizza will be your reward if you are willing to wait for your turn to be seated. Luckily they are often giving out free samples, and you can actually place your pizza order while you wait so they can get it in the...More
