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

We were going to the comedy club upstairs from this venue at North LaSalle Street so decided to try one of the acknowledged big hitters for Chicago style pizzas. What a great decision that was! We got there fairly early and were shown to a booth immediately. It was clear that the place had loads of character and the staff... More

Happen to passby the restaurant in the afternoon so decide to try the famous deep-dish pizza. They place us at a corner of the restuarant even though the place is not pack. Waited a long time food is ok nothing special.

The pizza was well made, thin crust but they do offer the deep dish version as well. Multiple sports screens to watch a variety of games on Sunday afternoon. Location is... More

We were told that we had to try Gino's East while we were in Chicago. They weren't wrong, this place is awesome. The pizza is Chicago style, deep-dish. The server we had was fantastic. Try the red hot style pizza, or the meat lover, you won't be disappointed.

While being dropped to our hotel in downtown Chicago, my cousin pointed out Gino’s East as being one of the best pizza restaurants in the city. What a pleasant surprise when our hosts decided to bring the group we were joining to Gino’s for dinner. We arrived at the building and were shown upstairs. What an interesting building. On the...
