I love a place where people write on the walls

They did not disappoint with the rustic look of a pizzeria. I lost seeing the historical feel of a place that has graffiti on the walls. It is a dark atmosphere and I feel that I have been somewhere with all the words and names on the walls. As for the pizza, it was ok. I can enjoy a good... read more

Just like I remember...worth the wait and our bartender was so nice and she makes and excellent dirty martini. Its does take 45 for a pizza but so hot and fresh and the crust is so buttery. I stop here everytime I'm in town.

This pizza is really good but not worth the expensive price tag as this is not the best deep dish pizza in Chicago. I'm glad we had a Groupon to cut down part of the price of the pizza but I am also glad that I was able to experience this place as everyone needs to atleast once in their... More

I went to Gino's East my first night in Chicago and it was amazing! The atmosphere of the restaurant was very unique and made the visit that much better. Now comes the good stuff! I ordered Mozzarella sticks, which were some of the best I've ever had, so good! For the deep dish i ordered the small Chi-Talion Stallion. It... More

Very, very good Chicago deep dish pizza. Wish we coild have tried Giordano's too, for comparison. A small pizza was $28, it was 4 slices, enough for 2 people with moderate appetites. It does take 45min-1hr to get the deep dish pizza cooked tho.

Great service from Julio and Travis. Deep Dish Pizza like you can only get in Chicago! We had cheese, sausage patty and tomatoes. We ordered the large so we could have leftovers to enjoy.

The Four Seasons told me this was the place to get great Chicago pizza and they were right! However, it took 40 mins to get our pizzas which the waitress did warn us ahead of time. It was worth the wait, but if your in a rush it might not work for you. It was a tuesday and not all... More

place was busy, but you can order ahead and the pizza was fantastic. Had good beer options too. I wouldn't go here if you were in a hurry thought.

It takes an hour to make a deep dish pizza? I was out in 20 with Lou's and I had cheesy bread and brownie with ice cream on top. Ginos just had to make a deep dish pizza and it took an hour. Plus the pizza wasn't as great as I had expected. Not worth the wait or money. Only... More

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
