I feel a bit bad writing this review because I'm sure a lot of people love this pizza but it just wasn't my thing despite being completely addicted to pizza. I'd seen this place on Man v Food and decided that it would be great to try. We got there late afternoon but the place was already rammed and there... More

Located at Superior and Michigan. Firstly, be aware that all deep-dish pizzas take 45 minutes to make and serve. Server was very friendly and offered suggestions like having 1/2 margherita and 1/2 supreme on one pie (great idea!). While waiting feel free to add your name to the graffiti walls. Pizza is piping hot and crammed deep with toppings, although... More

I'm sorry I chose this restaurant to get my Chicago deep dish pizza. The crust reminded me of cornbread, not Italian pizza dough. I had a better deep dish pizza in Florida!

Next door to MileNorth Hotel, and just off of the Miracle Mile, Gino's East is a fun stop that is a long standing tradition for locals as well as visitors to Chicago. Write on the walls, eat great pizza, and have tons of fun. Prices are high compared to what you will get out of Chicago but it's worth it... More

the deep dish is worth the wait - and you will have to wait. I highly recommend an appetizer or two while you wait for your pizza. Bring along a white sharpie or some liquid white out - you can write your name on the walls!

My partner & I had very mixed experiences here. First night was abysmal - waitress served next table before us even though we were before them. I remarked on this and that was it - she was mad at us. Well, we waited & waited...and waited. No food. Several tables were served during this time but according to our waitress,... More

We just arrived in Chicago and decided to walk around the area of our hotel and find some food. Saw Geno's East and read the menu. I'm eating more healthy foods so can be picky. They had tons of options. I had the roasted brussel sprouts and a salad and it was fantastic, my hubby had the Hot Italian sandwich... More

Pizza was great as it always is but slight attitude from hostess especially to lack of speed by waitstaff took it form usual awesome experience to just... More

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
