Gino’s East was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint! We were warned that our deep dish pizza may take up to 45 minutes, so I ordered a salad and we got mozzarella sticks for the table. They seemed to be made in-house...More

Gino's East is a staple of pizza in the Chicago area. Everyone debates, who is better... Gino's, Giordano's or Lou Malnati's ... I personally feel that Lou's is the best, followed by Giordano's with Ginos coming in third and I will tell you why... On...More

We Ordered the Meaty Legend, and it was the best Deep Dish Pizza we ever had. This is coming from long term NYC residents. The crispy Brussel sprouts were very good and the sausage gave it a lot of flavor. Cider and house Beer are...More

We ordered the thin crust pizza and the crust is so over cooked we could hardly chew it. But worst of all was the service, Alan looked gross and was pathetic. Had to look for him and almost beg for refills on the drinks. We...More

I ate at Gino's first. Then I went to the Comedy Club and had drinks. I don't recall seeing people eating, but I would call Gino's and ask.
