Convenient Location, Okay Pizza

This Gino's East is very small. There are probably only 4 actual parking spaces, and a couple of tables. After being at many Chicago style pizzerias I find that this particular pizza place lacks taste in their pizza. The yellow butter crust is also not very appealing to me. Gino's is very well known, but I would try the Gino's downtown.

Enjoy yourself!

I have visited this restaurant with my wife to eat-in 3 out of the last 4 Sunday evenings. Excellent service, clean, nearly full tables, waitress speaking good English, and OUTSTANDING pizza! I have traveled extensively across the country over the last 40 years and this is one of the 2 pizza establishments in the city I recommend to others. Enjoy!

EXCEPTIONALLY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. Had issues with a pizza as it was not made as ordered. Spoke to manager (Oya) who offered nothing but an appology. Pizza was unedible. In a city that has MANY choices for quality Chicago style pizza, Ginos East now rates last in line to me and my family. I spent $30 on a pizza that is now in the garbage. Next time I will take my business to Uno , Do, or Lou Malnatis.

BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE....ordered a deep dish pizza and when I went to pick it up the girl at the counter got my last name wrong. After waiting 20 minutes the manager came over and said I paid the wrong receipt and I owed an extra $7.00 the whole time my pizza was sitting there...she told me the girl at the counter was a FOREIGNER and therfore heard my name incorrectly... HOW INSULTING TO THE WORKER!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also, they need to go ""GREEN""... not at all eco-friendly with the styrofoam plates, cups, plastic forks and knives that couldn't possibly cut the deep dish pizza anyway...get a DISHWASHER foks! For the price you pay you could go to almost any pizza joint in the city, get as good or better pizza and actually eat it on a ""real"" plate with people that appreciate their staff!!!!

Fantastic pizza. What else?

Overall, if you want great, and I mean great, deep dish pizza, it's hard to go wrong with Gino's East. Having tried the deep dish pizza of several Chicago establishments, I can say fairly confidently that Gino's tops my list. The editorial review sums up this location fairly well. BYOB, plastic utensils, great corn meal crust deep dish pizza. This is a small location that seats about 30-40 people. I've yet to sample their other dishes. Until then, viva la deep dish! (Note- rating reflects more on dining environment and not on the food. The DD pizzas get a ""9"" in my book.)
