I will not return. Sad, because it is right down the street from where I work.

The food was excellent and the atmosphere was lively and friendly. We really enjoyed Gino's East and would definitely consider returning on a future visit to Chicago!

I've been nervous to use Groupons especially at restaurants because waiters/waitress seem to have a bad attitude about them. You tell them you have a Groupon and they provide lessor service...NOT the case here! I think Rosie was our server & she was amazing. So great, upbeat, & we will go back. We were also happy to pay to upgrade for items not included in the groupon (beer & the bigger appetizer). Thanks

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.
