We have been to the original Gino's East location a couple of times, and this was our first visit to the new LaSalle location. The atmosphere is much better in my opinion. The pizza was just okay, though. The edge of the crust was hard as a rock, and the crust didn't have much flavor. We visited Lou Malnati's last... More

What a great new location with no wait. The food was just as good as the original location and the draft beer was great.

This was our first trip to Chicago and we wanted to try deep dish pizza. Gino's was recommended to us and it didn't disappoint. Gino's East has moved three blocks from their former location. We used valet parking for $13. The pizza takes 45 mins. to prepare, so we enjoyed salad and beer while waiting. They have a great beer... More

But not this time, the order took forever to be delivered as I'm sure it was very busy, when it did arrive it was cold and wrong. They did accommodate the original order by bringing back what was originally ordered, although it was good it was cold as well. Pizza was just average as well.

I am usually not a fan of deep dish pizza but Ginos is great and they have amazing selections of pizza according to your taste/likes. Awesome location if you are staying on the magnificent mile.

Pizza was GREAT! But service surely lacked. Sat at the Bar to view a game while dining, Bartenders were standing the whole meal with backs to us talking and stacking glasses. I had to get up three times to get their attention for another drink, BTW they were not busy with customers. I will never return there. They will survive... More

I love this place and their pizza! We had the deep dish with blue cheese and jalapenos stuffed with bacon and blue cheese. I was truly in heaven. Had a nice fight of beers with it and I'm already thinking of my return visit. Just awesome sauce!

This was the third deep dish pizza joint to which I dragged my boyfriend. I was determined to get this Brit to like Chicago-style pizza if it killed me. We tried Uno's - which I used to love - and found my memory of it much better than the real thing. We tried Lou Malnati's, which we both liked, but... More

My son aged 17 loved the deep dish pizza. Husband and I had lasagna. Very tasty however far too mic cheese. Had to scrape quite a bit off. If you like large portions of high calorie food you 'will love it. Bruschetta was nice and waiter lovely. Unfortunately not my type of food.
