The pizza was amazing as was the service. They have a few tables on the sidewalk with umbrellas, kind of nice in downtown Chicago to eat outside. Good selection of beers. Would go again!

This pizza is awesome! Huge slices and tastes wonderful! Cool spot off magnificent mile. Waitress was awesome as well. She handled our party of 16 with ease and warned us ahead of time about the 45 minutes that it takes for a pizza to cook.

We had about 12 of us and ended up here at the original Gino’s east. We ordered several deep dish pizzas. The food and drinks sure did hit the spot.

Grew up near Chicago and ate at Gino's frequently. We have a meal here whenever we are in Chicago. Have been forced to try pizza in other states and have been universally disappointed because they cannot compete. Pizza here is a meal. You need a...More

I would Google Gino's East and zoom in on the map to see whether the map lists any parking ramps; you could also type in Gino's address and search "Parking near (insert Gino's address.") We use bus, train and walking when we... More

Description
For 50 years, the original Gino’s East has been offering the best deep dish pizza experience in Chicago. Since we opened our doors in 1966, we’ve shared millions of our signature golden-crust Chicago-style pizzas with Chicagoans, celebrities, and visitors from all over the world. Don’t believe us? The writing is on the walls! We’re world-famous for our tradition of letting all of our customers leave their mark on our restaurant. Come by and leave some graffiti, if you can find a spot, and see if you can find it next year! Gino’s Chicago-style deep dish is made the same way it was 50 years ago. We start with our signature, secret-recipe dough and top it with mounds of mozzarella cheese, fresh toppings, and our tangy tomato sauce. Our pies are slowly baked in seasoned cast iron pans until the crust is golden and flaky, then we serve it table-side, piping hot, right out of the pan. Our deep dish pizzas are loaded with so many toppings that we have cook them for nearly an hour. That’s also the reason we have to put the sauce on top; if we didn’t, the cheese would burn! But trust us, it’s worth the wait. We promise. Ask the people that agree that we are the best deep dish pizza in Chicago. Not sure what to order? Try one of our signature pizzas! The Meaty Legend is a carnivore’s dream, with pounds of pepperoni, special-recipe Italian sausage, Canadian bacon, and crispy bacon. The Chicago Fire is perfect for spice-lovers, with a layer of extra spicy Italian sausage, roasted red peppers, red onions, and jalapeno. Not a meat eater? Try our signature spinach pizza with a blend of fresh spinach and mozzarella cheese. And for the purist, we offer our patty sausage pizza, with a thick layer of our signature sausage covering the entire pie so you get tasty sausage in every bite!
