    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.

    Go deep dish but order an appetizer because it takes 30 to 45 minutes for the pizza to arrive at your table
  • Gino's East The Original of Chicago
    There's nothing wrong with a little pre-pizza snack. Make sure to try our Crispy Brussels Sprouts with garlic and pancetta.

    The veggie pizza.. So. Much. Garlic. In every single bite..minced so fine that you can't separate it. The house salad.. lots of lettuce, ONE olive, 2 thin rings of onion, half a tomato - don't bother

    Minnesotan foodie says if you are looking for a good Chi-town pizza, go for the deep dish w/ sausage as a disc. Good local beer selection as well.

    So in addition to having the best pizza, Gino's has stepped up the craft beer menu a bit. 5 locals on tap and about 20 decent bottles to choose from. Nicely done.

    Great Deep Dish Pizza. You may want to try to go early before the dinner rush. Takes about 1 hour to get a pizza cooked so you may want to order a salad or appetizer. .

    Dang! Best Chicago deep dish I have ever had. Which makes sense since I am a Seattlelite in Chicago. Get the Meaty Legend and revel in its meaty deep dishness. For quick seating, go to the bar.

    Ai mangé la Gino's East Suprême. Très bon, goût moins prononcé que je pensais mais bon! Faut aimer la croûte pour les pizzas ici, mais elle est différente de chez nous, un peu comme une tarte/pizza!
