Came in for a concert and stopped for dinner. Great deep dish pizza - we had the meaty one. It took about 30 min but we were warned. The house have us some complimentary chips. Service was good.

I've been there twice and it was a pleasure to be there. First of all: Great beers! They make some own beers which are awesome! Very tasty and local stuff. Then of course the pizza itself! I'd recommend the "meat lovers" which includes italian saussage, ham, tomato, cheese and much more. For me as an European guy it was the... More

In college I went to the Superior street location but I have talked about it for literally 25 years as just a great pizza. Finally made it back to Chicago and headed straight off to Gino's. Excellent pizza. The prices look high, but this is a full meal compared to a NY slice (no offense my home area) The prices... More

This restaurant is very casual, yet also sit down. I fit in wearing my jeans and sweater. My recommendation would be to get any deep dish pizza and then also an appetizer. It takes about 45-50 minutes for pizza to cook, so don't show up when you're starving. They had a full bar and lots of beer on tap. We... More

Service is always great, good selection of house beer and pizza is my favorite from all of the ones in Chicago, it's all in the sauce.

Excellent service and food. A lot of fun...best pizza in the area! Affordable. They have a nice bar downstairs to wait at for your table to be ready. I definitely would not recommend the comedy bar on the 3rd level. The owner is a womanizer who beat his girlfriend, and the acts were very bad.

If you are looking for famous Chicago style pizza, this is a good place to visit. It takes a little longer for deep dish pizza, but I think it is worth the wait. In the evenings there is often live entertainment. The service is friendly and helpful

This place was one I wanted to try as I heard good things about their pizza and beer. I will only say I have never had such horrible service from any restaurant ever. Save your time and eat at one of the other pizza joints in the area. This place needs to close unless they find a lot better help,... More

We visited Gino's East during a tradeshow in Chicago this year. It was a quick dinner the first night we were there and it didn't disappoint. After a long day of travel we did a little more drinking than eating and were happy with our choices. We aren't beer drinkers, so everyone had cocktails and they were all pretty good.... More
