Gino's East Magnificent Mile


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2016 - 2017 Winner

Location and contact

For 50 years, the original Gino’s East has been offering the best deep dish pizza experience in Chicago. Since we opened our doors in 1966, we’ve shared millions of our signature golden-crust Chicago-style pizzas with Chicagoans, celebrities, and visitors from all over the world. Don’t believe us? The writing is on the walls! We’re world-famous for our tradition of letting all of our customers leave their mark on our restaurant. Come by and leave some graffiti, if you can find a spot, and see if you can find it next year! Gino’s Chicago-style deep dish is made the same way it was 50 years ago. We start with our signature, secret-recipe dough and top it with mounds of mozzarella cheese, fresh

If you want deep dish pizza, this is the place!! Believe the staff when they say how filling one slice is! Very. Pizza takes some time to bake, so be prepared for a wait. It’s worth it though!

Our family was looking for delivery pizza in Streeterville and decided on Gino’s East. And, we were glad we did! We ordered the thin crust sausage and thick crust Gino’s Supreme. Even though the wait time on a Saturday night was 90 minutes, the pizza...More

We ordered the stuffed pizza which does take a while to prepare but it is worth the wait. Very good pizza. Happy Hour specials offered daily. Iconic interior decor.

I was recently in Chicago for meetings with associates from around the country. I suggested Gino's East because it is quintessential Chicago deep dish. We should have left when they told us they could not provide separate checks (which many of our jobs require for...More

Had very high expectations before coming here. Restaurang is very cool, but with hard ceiling-floor-walls-furniture it gets really noisy which is very disturbing (sitting in the first floor). We had to wait an hour for the pizza which was ok as they told us. We...More

I would Google Gino's East and zoom in on the map to see whether the map lists any parking ramps; you could also type in Gino's address and search "Parking near (insert Gino's address.") We use bus, train and walking when we... More
