Great Pizza

We went in for a pizza at lunch. Great time to go good service, not busy. We greeted almost even before we sat down which was great. Server let us know that the pan pizzas take awhile so we ordered right away. We had some toasted cheese ravioli before the pizza came out. Boy were they good! Pizza... read more

First time i have been to the LaSalle location. I miss the graffiti of the old restaurants but the pizza is still the best in Chicago.

I hadn't been to Gino's in some time so when we had to see a surgeon downtown Chicago; the timing was perfect to have a bite before the 3 hour ride back home! I was tickled to see GLUTEN FREE pizza on the menu. We had sandwiches and took home a frozen deep dish pizza and gluten free pizza for... More

The pizza was very good and even thou they say 45 minutes to cook we started to eat our first piece of pizza before 45 minutes, probably because we were just ahead of the evening crowd. Our waiter was great and my girlfriend was very happy on the suggestion of wine he made. So if your not into cornmeal type... More

Pizza was not great. The crust is cornmeal, so it felt like chili and pizza combined in 1 dish. Some love it, we did not. Services and appetizers were great! Giordanos is still our favorite!

My husband raved about this place. I had a high expectation for it. My whole experience was just okay. I was underwhelmed. We arrived late in the evening and were sat in the bar area. The music was uncomfortably loud and annoying. I mean it was LOUD, thumping and I could not understand our waitress when she was asking me... More

My boyfriend and I couldn't wait to sample some "Chicago style" deep dish pizza. So we decided to test out Gino's, because they had a groupon discount available. Unfortunately, Gino's wouldn't honor the discount for delivery, because they said it was valid for dine-in only (even though it didn't clearly state that). Any how, I decided to order from them...

I'll start by saying that I prefer the pizza at both Giordano's and Lou Malnati's to Gino's East pizza. However, we hadn't been to Gino's in a while, and I had heard that they moved the Ontario location to a new building on LaSalle. I was interested because I had read that they were going to start brewing beer and... More

Visited here for dinner week prior to Christmas. Not too long of a wait, and killed the time with their excellent beer selection. Not a long list, but we all ordered different varieties and were very pleased with our selection. Obviously, the pizza was solid as well, what you'd expect from a Chicago landmark.

My husband and I ended up here on New Year's Day because he made a reservation and didn't realize this wasn't the original. We walked in a little early for our reservation and were told we would be seated in a minute. The hostess then forgot about us and processed to seat 2 groups that came in after us without... More
