Lou Minalti’s Pizzeria is another recommendation from Nanzaro’s twitter follower.
The Uber ride from Millennium Park to River North was less than $9. It’s about the same amount if we take the “L”. It’s definitely more convenient.
There was a short wait for our tables as the place is busy. While we were waiting for our table, we were asked to order the pizza first. Apparently, the deep dish pizza takes 45 minutes to prepare.
The decor is very rustic, with bottles embed in walls. The wall on the 2nd level is decorated with skis, roller blades, skateboard, etc.
Ben ordered an appetizer to start with. We shared a Stuffed Spinach Bread.
The Stuffed Spinach Bread was cheesy.
After the appetizer, it took a long time before the rest of our orders came. We should have asked for the pasta to be served first instead of all items served the same time.
Finally, the deep dish pizza arrived. We had a small Chicago Classic.
The deep dish pizza is definitely cheesy.
We also had a small cheese thin crust pizza. It is crispy.
Look at the difference in height of both the deep dish and thin crust pizza.
Ben wanted to try the pasta here and was recommended Penne Ala Malnati. It was nice but we ordered too much food.
We had a lot of leftover to bring back to the hotel. We had some for breakfast the morning.
It was another good recommendation from Nanzaro’s twitter friend.
