Food was good. Restaurant was understaffed. One server for an entire dining room. She ran around attempting to take care of the customers. Our appetizers were cold and the dessert was also cold. Will never return.

Food was great, bar service was not. Didn’t have a couple of cocktails on the menu and service was just adequate

Called ahead so we (party of 8) could pre-order but for some reason they don't allow it. I even asked twice. I asked to order the Pizza's as soon as we sat down we ended up waiting another 45 minutes to an hour for our Pizza's. This was especially stupid since while we were sipping our water for what seemed an eternity people were waiting for tables.

Love to write on the tables and walls at Gino's. Make sure to bring a white sharpie to leave the best print. The pizza is traditional Chicago style. Our waiter was very nice, but didn't always come around with water. He did bring my daughter a brownie for her birthday which was outstanding. We had a good time!

Such great pizza! Family-friendly atmosphere, but it was very, very noisy. It made conversation within my own group difficult. Overall it was a good experience made even better by using Open Table to make reservations a week early. We got right in at our reserved time while others were waiting for an hour or more just to be seated.

Came here on our first night in Chicago from the UK to try the deep dish pizza experience. Our waitress was very helpful on which size we should order as they are very big and filling. They were tasty but our sausage crumble one was a bit too sloppy whereas our son's sausage patty one was much deeper and tastier. They are on the expensive side but it was enjoyable evening.

Was in town for our annual Chicago trip. We have had Chicago style pizza at a few places but never at Gino's East. We visited the location at 500 N Lasalle. This was the best by far of all the places we have tried. Plus the atmosphere was fun and our server was top notch, very knowledgable and attentive. This will definitely be our pizza restaurant of choice for all future visits to Chicago.

In town visiting colleges with my son and had to try Gino’s East. Even with reservation we had to wait 15 min for table. Once we were seated though the service was prompt and very friendly. Our waitress had a huge table of at least 20 but still kept up with our dinner. Great cocktails and beer. The deep dish style isn’t necessarily my favorite but was delicious. Good sauce & toppings and the crust is very tasty. Might try their thinner crust next time but had to go authentic for first visit! Place is fun with people writing names and notes all over the walls everywhere.

Enjoyed our dinner. Service was a bit slow at first but honestly it didn’t matter after a few beers and laughs with the family. Was there with my family and everyone had a great time. Order less than the waitress recommends!!

My daughter first visit for deep dish! It was very good except the crust wasn’t my favorite. Tasted like a cornmeal base. The sauce was yummy as well as all the cheese. The mozzarella sticks were great and I had craft beer like Blue Moon and it was very tasty. They took care of us Great and love the “ Deep as blank” shirts!!

A disappointing visit to one of our favorite pizza places. We ordered a calamari appetizer which was about half calamari and half fried crumbs. The marinara served with it looked and tasted like they scraped the last of it out of a pan. When we asked for more marinara, we were charged .50 for it. When we paid the bill, one of our gift cards didn't work, so they just gave us another gift card and charged the balance on our credit card. The pizza was tasty, but they literally took it out of the oven to our table, so when they served it, it was so hot that the cheese was sliding all over the place. They need to let it cool a couple of minutes before serving it. They put the leftover piece of pizza in a cardboard box which was totally soggy on the bottom when I was carrying it out. Not rushing back to visit Geno's.

Brought a friend that had never had deep dish Pizza and was a huge lover of pizza. Gino’s did not disappoint. On a side note the staff here are amazing! We were lost trying to use public transit and without them, their patience and humor...we would still be on the red line. Oh and ask for a pen to write on the graffiti wall! So fun!!!

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.

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.
