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...

I am hoping I have the correct location of this Gino's East. This restaurant was not busy when we arrived. I am saying this as our order took over an hour. First a gal tok our order and we never saw her again. Another server came and we started the order over again! We ordered one pizza to share! We... More

Our group had dinner here and couldn't hear ourselves think over the guy playing guitar and screaming over an amp/speaker. It was so bizarre. The only way to talk to my dinner guests was to shout. I don't know if this is an occasional thing or not, but I would not dine here again if there's music playing that loudly.... More

I live in Orlando Florida and I came to Chicago for my birthday and this is one of the places I definitely had to hit up. The deep dish lives up to its hype and our server Samantha was super nice. Will be back!

We waited an hour and 15 minutes for one deep dish pizza and it was just "eh" and very expensive. Very bland sauce. Few toppings. Soggy crust. I was disappointed. The appetizer platter was also totally overpriced for a pile of grease. The bloody Mary was also weird, it tasted like watered down salami juice? Also all of our plates... More

We wanted to experience the famous Chicago style pizza and this restaurant came recommended by those we asked. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive and the salad with homemade dressing was delicious. The pizza came to our table looking like a runny mess. We were wondering if they didn't let it set long enough before cutting. We didn't send it... More

Ordered here for pick up since Giordanos had a 2hr wait. Paid over $30 for a thin med 2 topping pizza ( equivalent to a small with 6 slices) and a skimpy caesar salad. There was too much sauce and just tasted plain. Wasn't enough food to fill 2 adults and we ended up at McDonalds later! Would not eat... More

Came here on a mini-trip to Chicago. I brought my friend who had never had deep-dish pizza. We came for lunch and shared a small pizza between the two of us (and still had leftovers). As a word of notice, it takes about 45 minutes for the pizza to be made, so this isn't a place to come if you're... More

Good pizza and a good variety. Gluten free options are limited (as would be expected at a pizza place), and only one size gf crust is available, and limited topping options. It is also more expensive (also as to be expected with gluten free). However, the salad was fresh and tasty!
