Gino's East

Pizza in Near North & Navy Pier

In the great deep-dish pizza wars, Gino’s is easily one of the top-five heavies. And it encourages customers to do something wacky: cover every available surface – walls, chairs, staircases – with graffiti. The classic cheese-and-sausage pie oozes countless pounds of gooey goodness over a crispy golden crust. Prepare to wait for the pleasure as reservations are not accepted.

This is the original Gino's location and the most atmospheric. The company also has other branches around town.
