If in Chicago you must eat here. It is the epitome of Chicago-style pizza. I won't say much other than DO IT! It's not so much what you order as what you get. If you are a picky-eater (don't read any more of my reviews because life's too short to not try anything), then you might want to stick to... More

Stopped in one of my boyfriend's old Chicago favorites today for some Chicago deep dish. I can see why it was completely dead on a weekday lunch hour. It was a three hour lunch. I'm not exaggerating. We ordered two drinks, a side salad, an appetizer and a medium pizza. The drinks didn't come out for over 30 minutes...the appetizer... More

Wanted to sample a Chicago deep dish pizza with friends during a recent trip to Chicago. After placing our order, another server came by and asked us to repeat our order because our server forgot what we ordered. It was a deep dish small legend pizza with brussel sprouts on the side and one coke....not too difficult to remember. We... More

Other than the locals who showed up drunk after cubs game and gluten free pizza being sub par. The small 4 sliced deep dish was too much to eat for one. But sooooo good! I would make it back again, excusing the sight of cub fans as the local color. Local beer selection was great too.

This was our first trip to Chicago and our first meal had to be deep dish pizza. Gino's East did not disappoint. The pizza was hearty and delicious, and we'll worth the wait. Our server, Samantha, was very personable and attentive. We will definitely return on our next trip to Chi-town!

Attention all Brits! You've just found the best ale in Chicago by reading this review. If you like a good tasty real ale with a bit of a bite to it then Gino's is going to deliver what your after. As the title says, it's a brewery so you're getting fresh made ale from the premises. I only found the... More

We walked in at 5:00 pm as we were seeing a show that night. The hostess told us there would be a 30-35 minute wait just for a table even though there were tables available. We asked to wait at the bar. When we were greeted by the bartender, he asked if we would like a food menu. We confirmed... More

I struggle to rate their pizza because I don't want to take sides in the debate about which pizza style is supreme. We went to Gino's on the strong recommendations of several Chicagoans. The staff was really top notch...proud of their restaurant, proud of their city and super accommodating to my friends who didn't quite understand how reservations work (like... More

Our family pick for the best Chicago Pizza! Fun place, clean, and great food. We will miss Gino's the most when we have to go back to Iowa!
