Gino’s east is a must! Our pizza was absolutely fantastic! Our server brought a piece of yummy chocolate cake at the end of our meal For my husband’s birthday. Jolly gave us great service! What a cool place! We will for sure be back to visit when we are in Chicago!

We were at the restaurant early because we were going to a theater event. The waiter did an excellent job and we really enjoyed ourselves. The food tasted really good, I only wish it had been a little hotter. Otherwise I've got no complaints.

Don’t know why this should be the case as it’s the same recipe but the pizza tasted nowhere near as good as the Gino’s on superior street. We had the deep dish meaty legend. Disappointing when I know just how good it can be.
Oh and despite me watching the receptionist tick my name off on their booking system when we arrived, I was later accused of not turning up for my booking. Hmmmm.

Lunch on New Year's day so the room was very quiet. Great and fun service! Excellent pizza, half special & half spinach. Was a Giordano's fan, but have now converted to Gino's after my second visit.

The food is great here, but its quite expensive. I ordered a small personal pizza and a side salad. The total with tip was about $30. The crust was wonderful and the pizza tasted very good.

The pizza and chili were good but the beer was not cold. Can’t decide between Chicago style pizza or Italian beef? They have a pizza with the Italian beef and all the seasonings and peppers and it was bursting with flavors.

The hostess (short, chubby, dark hair) was absolutely rude to me and my partner. After refusing to seat us when there were clearly open tables, she told us that it would be a 30 minute wait (on a Tuesday night). She didn't take our names down at all. She offered us tickets to a comedy show and when we said no thank you she was incredibly rude. Ended up making an open table reservation and was able to be seated in 10 min... not sure why she said it would be 30.

Gino’s East pizza and spinach dip are the best! Why the music was so loud at early lunch and why the waiter seemed like he’d not waited tables before was beyond me we normally have great service there.

Visiting from out of town, went to Gino's because of reputation. Was disappointed with the experience. The Pizza was OK, we went because it offered Gluten Free Pizza, but needed Dairy Free as well . The server was not well informed on the Gluten Free /Dairy Free option. We found out after we ordered that the gluten free crust was infused with cheese. The only other option on the menu for Gluten and Dairy free was a salad. Disappointing. The rest of the meal was average.

We had the famous deep dish sausage & mushroom pizza. Tomato sauce was a little too sweet. There is sausage in every bite! Best to order pizza well-done so it’s not so runny. Service was awesome. Beer was great! Parking available within a block. I was surprised that the the restaurant was fairly empty. I would definitely eat there again.

My sister was visiting from out of town, and asked for deep dish pizza, as she felt like she would be missing out if she did not have at least one slice. So, we grabbed an early dinner reservation before it got too busy in River North, and had a delicious meal. I knew from the moment that the runner put the pie down that my sister was hapoy. And 2 minutes later when she took her first bite, and her eyes slowly closed and she said, “mmmmmmm....” I knew she was in heaven.

Our server was great, and kept our drinks full, and us laughing with her witty remarks.

We had a group of 6 that went for deep dish pizza. First off, they didn't have our Open Table reservation. OK, we'll wait. Go to the bar for drinks while we wait...really bad beer list. 'We only havecraft beers, mostly sour beers.' Wouldn't you want to diversify a little in case you got a customer that DIDN'T LIKE sour beers? We didn't have to wait very long, and got seated upstairs. Neat space, open ceiling rafters, random window dividers...neat. We ordered our pizza, our waiter told us it would be 30-40 minutes for the pizza...understood. But then he proceeded to DISAPPEAR for 30-40 minutes. I ended up walking downstairs to the bar to get another round of drinks. The pizza finally arrived, but we didn't have napkins or silverware. In the 30-40 minutes it took to cook the pizza, that should have been taken care of. We asked several times for silverware, etc. but were told there wasn't any clean, and they were working on it. tick, tick, tick...our pizza is getting cold with no way to eat it. When we finally were able to eat the pizza, it was good, but not good enough to make up for all the negatives in this experience. It will be a long time before we ever try Gino's again.

First sat is in the very back corner which was extremely dark...we had to use the flashlight on our phones to even read the menu. Empty tables well lit, so asked to be moved. Service downhill after that. Pizza was average. Ordered deep dish with the supreme toppings and was able to pick out a few pepperoni and onions. We were visiting Chicago with friends and kids and expected a better experience based on recommendations.
