    Food was delicious, but our service was terrible. Could not find our server to get our check and when we asked the hostess if she could help her lovely answer was "I'm not a waitress!". Won't be back.

    The sausage pizza is a hubcap-sized disc of sausage in a deep dish pizza. Do not contemplate buying anything else. And grab a craft beer, you've got a 45-minute wait at least.

    Even though everyone knows deep dish is for tourists, Gino’s is the sole exception. Sausage deep dish with spinach, trust the bear, I have 500 lbs. to prove it.

    it's almost as if they built this place with extra walls so even more people could write on them. don't let your eyes get bigger than your appetite: a medium deep dish is enough (400 cals a slice!)

    I was very excited to try this place. I should have tried somewhere else. Pizza is bland And overpriced. Service was atrocious. It may be an institution but so is the post office and they suck too.

    The deep dish pizza at Gino's East is unforgettable. Call them a day before your trip ends and have them prepare a frozen one for you to take back home.

    Don't order a New York style pizza in Chicago, get deep dish! Get a pie with pepperoni and green olives. To pass time while waiting for your pizza, bring a marker and graffiti up the place!
