Read some good reviews and thought we'd check it out this past week. Very slow service. Pizza was cold when it was brought to the table. Pizza was doughy on the bottom and toward the crust. Ate half a piece and sent it back for them to throw it in the oven longer. They voluntarily took a percentage off the bill. Was piping hot all the way to the hotel. Ate another piece. Both girlfriend and I ended up suffering from horrible food poisoning all night. Avoid!

Avoid this place. First time I ever walked out of a restaurant after being seated. Horrible, horrible, horrible service. Did not refill drinks or come back for our appetizer order after we requested the pizza be put in right away. People sitting across from us actually recommended we leave after probably hearing my table complain about the service. They told us they had waited an hour for their pizza, which still hadn't arrived yet. So we left after waiting about a half hour for a drink refill.

I have to be completely honest I miss the old location. I prefer that about 75% to the new one. It had personality and you could write on the walls. It just felt like there was so much history attached to your experience. The new place is a cookie cutter river north location. Honestly too fancy for pizza. They have communal dining tables which are my least favorite thing every created. Now the food is still amazing. They didn't miss a beat with the pizza of course and also a good lime ceviche that we got as an appetizer. You also really cannot beat the $11 beer tasting menu for 6 different beers. Great price. Still love this place just miss the old look and feel. Maybe if they let me write on the table I'd be ok ;)

Absolutely awful! If you want pizza of this quality any gas station will do. I cant believe this place stays in buisness. 100% positive there are no repeat customers.

The pizza tasted good but was so heavy. I never seen more cheese and sausage on a pizza in my life. I ate 1 slice and that was enough. I went here with some out of town friends who wanted deep dish pizza. I, myself, prefer thin crust but I have to admit the sausage, mushroom, onion pizza we got tasted pretty good

Excellent service and food. We ordered the home made mozzarela sticks, Arugula caprese salad and deep dish gino's supreme pizza small for 2 and it was and great choice. We did our reservation via opentable booking system and it worked very well. Staff very friendly and open to give recommendations about what beer or what size of deep dish to order. Very nice decoration and environment. I will repeat.

This place is the most creative Chicago Deep Dish Pizza place in Chicago, they are also opening a Brewery inside the restaurant in the next few months. Well done and well worth the visit.

Went there for dinner one night since we were in the mood for Pizza...We were hungry and chose the new location on LaSalle due to its proximity to our location at that time. Bad idea... the staff was all over the place, forgot multiple times to bring our drinks and came up with the strangest justifications. The whole setup seemed temporary and not well thought through. A small deep dish and a med. thin crust Pizza had us wait there for over 90 minutes!!! The place was not full. Half of the deep dish had no toppings for some reason, the thin crust was cold. We complained and got half off the bill... needless to say that we won’t be going back and I will avoid the chain as well as the brand in the future.
