The Original Gino’s East of Chicago

For over 50 years, Gino’s East has been an icon of Chicago food culture. First opening its doors in 1966 on Superior Street in the Magnificent Mile of Chicago, Gino’s East has become one of the most celebrated deep dish pizza brands in the city. The pizzeria has expanded to multiple states across the country, sharing its golden flaky crust, writing on the walls, and authentic taste of Chicago.
