Service at your Wells & Ontario restaurant is great. Kudos to a really busy staff on a Saturday night. Exact opposite for your South Loop restaurant. Btw, 3 of my coworkers went to the South Loop restaurant for lunch & waited over an hour for cold personal pizzas!

It was a great dining experience. We sat at the bar due to long wait for tables. Service was great and we had a great time.

Sandra was our server on this particular day. She was super sweet & very attentive even though her area was filling up with guests fast.

The skin on the wings was soggy, not crisp. Good flavor though.

My only qualm, which isn't a very big deal, was that the waiters needed to step up their game a bit. They were friendly, but I noticed a family who still hadn't been attended and it took some time before my friends and I received our bill. Much respect to the waiters/waitresses, though. Dealing with people, in general, is not an easy task.

From Our Editors

In 1966, taxi drivers Sam Levine and Fred Bartoli finally became fed up with their stop-and-go lives full of honking horns and rush-hour traffic. So they shut off their engines, handed in their keys, and took root. Along with pal George Loverde, they invested in property just off the bustling Magnificent Mile, but then didn’t know what to do with it. According to a 2004 profile in the Chicago Tribune, they got their direction when someone finally said, “Put pizza in it.”

Though the rest is history, it wasn’t quite easy. Bartoli and Loverde came from Italian and Sicilian backgrounds, but neither knew the key to a good pizza. It wasn’t until they hired Alice Mae Redmond, the woman responsible for the dough at Pizzeria Uno, that the Gino's East Chicagoans know and love was truly born. Although Alice Mae retired back in 1989, the recipe for her flaky, golden deep-dish pizza crust lives on.

Today, Gino’s still stands at its original spot on Michigan and Superior but has also stretched to 10 other city and suburban locations. Whether dining downtown or in St. Charles, customers find Alice Mae’s signature crust piled with mounds of cheese, sauce made from vine-ripened tomatoes, and plenty of fresh toppings—from sausage and pepperoni to jalapeños and ground beef. Hot from the oven, pizzas arrive at tables snuggled inside seasoned deep-dish pans, ready to welcome a fork and knife. Thin-crust varieties are also available for those who don’t know how to work silverware, as is a bounty of sandwiches.
