You cannot leave the windy city before trying one of the famous Deep Dish pizza, a kind of "pie" with a pizza base and a filling of tomato sauce and mozzarella and whatever you fancy from the menu!! Also the normal crusty pizza or the sandwiches are delicious and the ambient is super cool. Sometimes you have to queue to... More

Arrived at 7:00 on a Friday night, and got seated immediately. Our server, Ricky Bobby, was engaging and a true sports guys. Pizza was really good. The spicy sausage lives up to it's name.

Good Chicago style pizza, really heavy you can only eat a slice or two and you are bloated. Place gets busy we had to wait 1/2 hour for a table. Ordered a large and should have ordered a small, took over half the pizza back to the hotel and it lasted for a couple days. I was not familiar with... More

We ordered a DIP DISH pizza! No complimentary food! Server was friendly but seemed acting no real passion! We ordered a spinach dip dish and added chicken as topping. They mostly have pork and Italian sausages. But our pizza came with only tomatoes and one or two pieces of chicken!!! No spinach!!!! And the server couldn't serve it properly! He... More

No wow factor. I was really hoping for the famous pie to be good. Hard crust, not tasty. I like the style. But was disappointed after waiting 40 minutes. Waitress was really slow and responsive across the board.

We came here because the review on Trip advisor were good! We want to experience Chicago pizza, their deep dish pizza was out of this world! Highly recommend Gino's for authentic local pizza!

This restaurant was recommended to us by the concierge in our hotel located two blocks away. It was no problem getting a table and we ordered the food and beer without any hassle. While they have a decent selection of beer a number of them were unavailable on the night. The pizza that we ordered was delicious and everything a... More

I know, I know... any person familiar with a chicago-style deep dish pizza will understandably roll their eyes now but as a deep dish rookie I was not prepared to wait an hour for a pizza. We waited 20 minutes for a table and then were told that it will be about an hour to get our $40 (!) deep... More
