“They don't allow corkage!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

Brought a wine from home (Sonoma County) to share with a friend and was told they don't allow you to do that. Otherwise their wine list is very poor. Never heard of not allowing bottles from home before & neither did some Chicago area friends. However, the local deep veggie pizza with the cornbread crust was a first for me. I'd try the pizza again but at a different restaurant.

“Big Mistake”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

After attending a conference in Chicago, we found the Gino's East location at 8725 West Higgins Road on our way to Chicago O'Hare. We had already eaten at Giordano's and thought we would have one last deep dish prior to going home to Texas. Big mistake. The taste/flavor did not live up to our previous pizza experience. There were four us dining, and I actually ordered the personal mini thin crust and was brought the deep dish instead. The pizza was runny and the flavor of the crust was odd. I cannot recommend this restaurant at all.

“Great pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

The sauce was flavorful with plummy tomatoes. The cheese had a great taste and just the right amount. The crust was very corn mealy but it actually added to the pizza. Second best deep dish I've had. Definitely a do over.

“Good, but expected better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We picked up our Marine from O'Hare and hopped over to this GIno's--nice and close. Great service, great waitress, pleasant atmosphere; also allowed us to call in order early and then come in and eat. (Takes about 40 minutes to bake.) OK deep dish, but Giardano's deep dish was less greasy and had better crust, better flavor. Family was disappointed, but it's still a pretty convenient location for trips to/from O'Hare.

“Some of the best Chicago pizza around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Love eating here--beats going all the way downtown for the same quality pizza and no wait! Classic Chicago pizza. If you're starving while you wait try the toasted ravioli. YUM!
