In Chicago for work and several years ago ate at Gino's so I decided to go back. I remembered we had a great meal and it has not changed. Atmosphere is electric and service was great. We got seated right away and had a great view to watch the Soxs game on TV. We ordered Asian wings and nachos for... More

We ordered the spicy Chicago style pizza. So good! My first time having a Chicago style pizza. The crust was like chicken pot pie crust - buttery and flaky. They have a good system of seating people. We first started out outside, moved inside and sat on the bench then to our seats. Pizza takes 45 minutes or so. That... More

Truth be told.... I never met a Chicago style pizza that i didn't like but the "Chicago Fire" pizza that i had at Gino's East on LaSalle was hands down the tastiest, most flavourful, and spiceyest (the name should have tipped me off) pizza i have ever eaten. The menu describes the "Chicago Fire" as havingHot & Spicy Patty-Style Sausage,... More

I have eaten at this place multiple times and it always is very good. Obviously the deep dish is what you have to get. . They also make a very good Italian meat sandwich. We tried the fries with the truffle mayonnaise sauce the other day and they were absolutely incredible. Our server at the bar was very nice &... More

I've tried just about every deep dish pizza out there, and hands down, Gino's East has the best full sausage patty deep dish pizza. Their mozzarella sticks are pretty tasty too. Enjoy!

The pizza was excellent, the waitress was very patient and helpful with making a selection. I was sad to see the old original building apparently has burned. The new location is historic and cool, but the old was unique and fun.

If you have 45minutes and a BIG appetite order the iconic deep dish pizza! That was seriously the most filling, yummy pizza I have ever had.

We visited the restaurant early afternoon and there was no wait. Restaurant was clean and server was friendly and helpful. Our salads were fresh and very tasty. We ordered a deep dish pizza which was prepared exactly as we requested and served hot. The crust was SIMPLY DELICIOUS and the sauce the pizza was made with is ONE OF A... More

20 minute wait for table was not a problem, but service once we were seated was horrible. Took 20 minutes to even place our order. Salad was served with no dressing and it took another 20 minutes after asking for dressing to get it. Ordered thin crust pizza which we were told would take 30 minutes - we got the... More

We had 1 day in Chicago yesterday and wanted pizza..it was great pizza but the service and 2 1/2 hour wait were NOT worth it! Extremely disappointed! The manager did pick up our bill but we cannot recommend unless you have a lot of time to sit there -there must be other pizza shops in Chicago! Maybe we should have... More
