Had Giordano's and it wasn't even close to Gino's. By far the best pizza I have had while visiting Chicago. Make sure every time visit that I make the trip to Gino's. Always get the loaded meat pie

We went here for a business dinner and it was great! Cool waitress served drinks and apps fast, and the pizza did not disappoint - loaded with tasty toppings, with just the right amount of cheese - melted but not mouth burning hot. they had a nice selection of local craft beers also, and the atmosphere was perfect - a...

Recently in town- visited Gino's twice, once with family (fabulous) once with the business group (less so). For the uninitiated, Chicago deep dish is like lasagna on a crust. It is delicious, and Gino's does it well. Laid back, busy interior, good drinks and beer on tap. Our only challenge was that they assigned a single waiter to more than... More

Came in after a Cub's game on a Friday evening. Party of 9 & we did not have to wait for a table - had to be dumb luck! I would recommend a reservation based on past visits! Happy Hour 5-7 pm means $3 Gino Brews - they brew their own beer & it's pretty good! We had the calamari,... More

I like Gino's East, and as Chicago Style Pizza goes this is pretty hard to beat. The service here is good. I didn't rate Gino's higher due to waits to be seated of 1 to 1.5 hours on a Friday night. The smell of the pizza alone is possibly worth a try.

Read so many reviews of Gino's East and went there with high expectations and anticipation of experiencing a great deep dish pizza. We had expected the 45 minutes for the order. The server was friendly and even offered suggestions of sightseeing in Chicago. The pizza was tasty, don't get me wrong. It was deep dish: it just wasn't what I... More

Got into Chicago and wanted deep dish pizza. Went thru the Trip Advisor app link to OpenTable and got a reservation easily. Outstanding service, first and foremost. Our server gave us some history of Gino's East and was very knowledgeable about the foods and beers on tap. Food was exceptional. Wife and I split an antipasto salad (amazing) and cheesy... More

Just had Gino's deep dish meat pizza and it is so good. Lots of flavor and very delicious. I also ordered the Bavarian pretzels. They are good, nice and soft, nothing to outstanding to comment about. The mustard that goes with them is what brings out the flavor. I would say save room and eat lots of pizza. This was... More

This is a Chicago must!! Delicious deep dish pizza with a to die for crust! Remember to give yourself time because the pizzas take about 45 minutes to cook. It's totally worth it!
