The number two rated Chicago deep dish pizza. The deep dish pizza takes along time to cook. The waiter warned us. The pizza looked good. It tasted good. Their crust lacked any flavor. Deep dish did not stand up to the hype. No more deep dish pizza for me.

After the Chicago marathon, we grabbed a shower at the hotel and a made our way to Gino's. Three pizzas and two salads fed our group of 5 hungry runners with plenty of pizza to take away. Hot, cheesy and traditional deep dish. If you die and go to heaven, they will be serving Gino's. Thanks Chicago..

During our visit we ate at multiple pizza places in Chicago and this was by far the best, the others were good, but the cornbread crust makes this pizza amazing! Definitely order the stuffed pizza, you won't be disappointed. Our service was great too, and they have a good selection of local beers. The fries with truffle dipping sauce were... More

Visited Chicago to run the marathon , they had carboloading specials. It was a 45 min wait to be seated, our waiter recommended we order an appetizer since the deep dish pizza would take another 45 min. we ordered the smoked trout dip with crudités which was delicious. When our deep dish pizza came it really lived up to its... More

My all time favorite Famous Chicago Pan Pizza. The crust is to die for, Lots of yummy mozzarella cheese and whatever other ingredients you choose. Service is fast, the atmosphere really nice with written graffiti all over. They used to provide crayons so that you can write anywhere and whatever - not insulting of course- but that's not happening anymore... More

Chicago is known for its Chicago style deep dish pizza however the deep dish wasn't as "deep" as I remember it being in past years. I typically like thin crisper crust, which is also available on their menu.

If you haven't been to Gino's you have to go when in Chicago. The Gino's on LaSalle is close to the Hyatt where I stayed. While not having the same atmosphere as the original Gino's the atmosphere here was very good, especially for sports fans with several bug screen tv's

I thoroughly enjoyed the Chicago-style pizza at Gino's East. What I wasn't prepared for was the fact that a Chicago-style pizza is a 45 minute wait! Come with some time to spare and you'll be fine. The pizza was very good!

This is our go-to place for good deep dish. The corn dough is the one thing which really distinguish the pizza from the other places. We like it, so far no disappointment. The nice thing is also that they have their own brewery attached and there are some nice choices on the menu.

Let me just say that I love their pizza SO much that I sometimes pay to have them shipped to me in Oklahoma, frozen. Yes, it is outrageously expensive to do... And no, I've never regretted it once. When traveling, if there's any way possible to get anywhere near Chicago I will make it happen so I can go to... More
