We had dinner at Gino's East. You really can't come to Chicago without having some Deep Dish Pizza. The inside of Gino's is all decorated with grafitti and guests signing the walls. It was really street and loved the art of it. The pizza's are quite expensive but they are very filling. A medium pizza is enough for 2 people.... More

The pizza was excellent. A medium pizza is enough for 2. However, the service seemed to be under staffed.

Took the family downtown for a day in the city and someone recommended we try Ginos. Had both a thin and crispy and a deep dish. The thin/crispy pizza was pretty good, but couldn't compare to their deep dish which was great. Staff/service was great and an impressive selection of beers. on the negative side the acoustics in the place... More

Went to have dinner at said location, because I was very impressed by the gino's east in Austin,Tx. I figured I would have been blown out of the water since this was actually in Chicago...WRONG. The pizza wasn't even close to the one in ATX. The crust was burnt, the marinara sauce was way to watery and runny. Nothing like... More

The only problem is having to wait.... But it's worth it! Love my thin crust pizza from Regina's in Boston's North End, but when it comes to deep dish it has to be Gino's East. The cornmeal crust is incredible! Very filling, and soooo tasty!

In town for business and decided to grab dinner and a beer tasting. Awesome food, as expected, and good beer. I recommend the wit or saison. Deep dish pizza is awesome.

I've traveled the world and the only thing no one can duplicate is my Gino's pizza. I now live in another state n never miss grabbing a deep dish pizza when home. Chicago style pizza is number one in my book!

Came in for a concert and stopped for dinner. Great deep dish pizza - we had the meaty one. It took about 30 min but we were warned. The house have us some complimentary chips. Service was good.

I've been there twice and it was a pleasure to be there. First of all: Great beers! They make some own beers which are awesome! Very tasty and local stuff. Then of course the pizza itself! I'd recommend the "meat lovers" which includes italian saussage, ham, tomato, cheese and much more. For me as an European guy it was the... More
