This is always a good place to KNOW you will have good Chicago style deep dish pizza. Lines can be very long waiting outside, we always ask our Concierge for a priority pass that gets you in for quicker seating. Once inside we didn't feel rushed and were able to enjoy our pizza and beer. We had a great waiter... More

My wife and I traveled to Chicago to watch our daughter's graduation from Naval Boot Camp. Once she shipped out we had almost an entire day to spend in Chicago. One of the "have to do' items on our list was to have authentic deep dish pizza. After doing a double decked bus tour and asking several people, they all... More

I've had Giordano's and Lou Malnotti's. Gino's is the best. Deep dish pepperoni pizza had plenty of pepperoni but seemed to lack all the grease I expected. I liked everything about the pizza- even the tops of the crust were not burned and could be eaten- but the wife said the sauce was too sweet. Waitress was super nice and... More

We were tired and wet and almost passed on this on.... so glad we stayed, there were 3 groups of people ahead of us, but the line moved fast and the food made me realize we've been doing pizza wrong. My only complaint is that the Gino's East is not found in Calgary Alberta. Thanks for teaching me what pizza... More

If it's your first time here, get the patty style sausage and whatever else you want on it. Trust me you will be satisfied and then come back and rate my review as helpful! 😀 I will always come back here and highly recommend you do to!

This is the place to go for deep dish pizza in Chicago. Alway crowded so be prepared to wait, not only for your table but also it takes about 1 hour for the pizza order.

This was my first time having deep dish pizza and there was no better place to do it. We waited for about 45 minutes to get a table, but that was mostly because we had 10 people in our group. Ordering was quick and painless and the atmosphere was awesome. We sat right beside where they make the pizza's in... More

Had not tried Authentic Chicago pizza...this was great. The crust was very yeasty and crunchy...not doughy like I expected. We tried the Chicago fire which had a layer of very spicy sausage (pattys). The sauce was on top with sausage and cheese under. Sloppier than I expected, but delicious.

The ambience of this restaurant is something I will never forget. The walls of this restaurant is literally filled with accolades written by visitors. You are very well free to scribble your name on the walls if you like the food served here. We tried the deep dish pizza (large one costing $35) the quantity was a bit more than... More

Deep dish pizza here is everything you've heard, oh so good! Very delicious, but get there early as the line will get long. It's a very popular spot and there's a reason!
