"The golden crust and patty sausage make this a must have for anyone."

Sitting here on the patio enjoying one of their brews now. Excellent beer. Fantastic pizza. There was a slight mix up in the kitchen with our pizza but the waitstaff handled it with grace. Will be back soon!

Loved Gino's East as a child when visiting Chicago with my family. Frequented the restaurant when a young professional living in the city. Tolerated the move to Ontario Street when back in town visiting with my wife about ten years ago. But had an absolutely miserable experience this past week when taking my own young family to the city for vacation. We went to the new River North location and it has lost all the appeal and ambiance of the original, and is now just another average sports bar. No writing on the walls. No intimacy. Disconnected staff. Music much too loud to have a dinner conversation yet alone hear the waiter from across the table. I literally had to get out of my seat to confirm the order. And service was painfully slow — and this was a Monday night. We waited over an hour from finishing the appetizers to getting our pizza. And there were multiple other tables looking just as bored and frustrated. The crowning moment was when our waiter brought the bill back to the table without my credit card. Ten minutes of pure panic until another waiter found it on the floor by the cashier. No apologies, but rather "that happens all the time." Really?! The pizza is good, but not worth the wait. Maybe the Superior Street location still has the magic, but this location has completely lost it for me and is not nearly as good as it had once been. Chicago has a lot of other pizza options nearby. I'd suggest trying those first.

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

Well I went here because i saw it on the food network and i was really dissapointed. I waited an hour to sit then another 10 minutes before i was even tendered to. I ordered the pizza while i was waiting and i told the waitress and it looks like they never even made my pizza because i still had to wait another 40 minutes before i even got it. Well the pizza was not worth waiting for. I believe this is the worst deep dish in chicago. Lou' s kills this place or even Paquods.

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!

Horrible experience. Said they can't serve all meals at the same time because they use 2 kitchens. becausebecause

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.
