If You find a hair in your pizza. Make sure they give you a new one and not a discount. It was totally uncalled for them to give me a discount.

We had an expired groupon for Gino's in St. Charles which said that the purchase value would be honored in the Chicago location indefinitely. We drove down to Chicago with our three kids to use the expired groupon specifically. When we received our pizza it was over cooked with one piece that was not edible as the crust was completely black/burnt. The waitress was apologetic and offered to get the manager. We waited (not eating) so the manager could see the whole pizza but he never came. The waitress came back after 15 minutes saying they would give us the pizza free. But when we got our bill they wouldn't honor the groupon (we had also purchased 5 drinks and 2 appetizers).

The St. Charles location has an outdoor seating area that needs to be renovated a bit to make it a bit more pleasing for those that enjoy eating outdoors.

Lousy service and a cheap imitation of the original Chicago Gino's East pizza. Better check your recipe or have the manager of the Chicago location come to St. Charles and show you how to make the real deal. Really disappointing.

We love your pizza but it was fun trying something new this time. We will definitely be back for more and have already spread the word about the delicious nachos. AWESOME

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.
