We visited this place after seeing it on Man Vs Food and as we had to have pizza while in Chicago this seemed like the place to go. We were told the deep pan pizza takes a while to cook which was just a good excuse for us both to have starters. The pizzas were so big we had them... More

We stopped in since this was a block away from our hotel, and I'm very glad that we did! Our waiter warned us that it takes 45 minutes for the deep dish pizzas to be made, so if you are starving when you arrive order some appetizers to hold you over! It is well worth the wait, the pizza was... More

I don't know it anybody knows how many layers of graffiti are on the walls of this three-story restaurant. What I do know is that the pizza is great and the service superb.

Very unusual venue with regards the deco. Graffiti type walls and dark and "punk" looking. Visited here after reading reviews and claims about the quality of the deep dish pizza. Little shocked at the price -$20 for a 4 slice pizza ?!? Maybe as I'm not that "into"pizza made me feel a little uncomfortable at the price. However it was... More

This place always lives up to its reputation for a great pizza and lively atmosphere. I have been visiting it since I was a teenager and the deep dish is still as delicious

We had heard of their deep dish pizza from man vs food and also one of our good friends who is from chicago. It certainly livedup to its name. We're not small in the slightest an we love to eat but 1 slice of this and I was stuffed. Perfect crust and lots of cheese...nom nom. Can't wait to go... More

Last night of the trip so we had to get a deep dish pizza, again. This place was only 3 blocks away from the hotel so we hiked here to Gino's. The place was busy so that told me the food was pretty good. Be prepared to wait 45 minutes for them to make the deep dish. Well worth the... More

Nothing but great things to say each time we go here. Be prepared to wait 45 min or longer for deep dish but it is worth the wait. We enjoy coming here.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
