We have had many of the other competitors pizza, Gino's still stands out as our favorite. The atmosphere of this location adds to the fun. Top notch and keep up the good work.

This was my third time at Ginos but first at this location. There was no system for the overabundance of people pouring in the front door. Several tables were seated in front of our party of three even though we arrived there first. Once we were seated the service was fine. The food wasn't amazing, but it was filling and... More

Not really much to say. Tried it based on reviews. Got the deep dish and it wasn't done. Had one piece each and tossed the rest.

Popped in here as it was just around the corner from my hotel and I wanted to try the deep pan Pizza that Chicago is renowned for. The service from the front desk to my table was of the high standard I had grown to expect and very personable; staff were genuinely interested in what I had been doing, where... More

First time in Chicago and everyone says you have to have a Chicago style pizza. More than a couple friends recommended Gino's East and they met the expectations! Jason our waiter provided excellent service and suggestions because you can't eat everything you see here!

Yes it was Chicago style but the crust is closer to cornbread than anything else. Not really my style and I wouldn't say it was special otherwise. Cool place and decent wait staff.

Gino's remains one of my top Pizza stops while in Chicago. They make the best crust of all the pizza places in Chicago.

I will admit I've only had deep dish pizza a few times but Gino's definitely does it right. This was walking distance from our hotel and around alot of other places to check out. The food was good, the staff were friendly, and it wasn't overly packed. I have no complaints.
