Detail for Gino's North Pizzeria : Restaurant, Italian

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

Chicago style pan pizza served in a graffiti marked basement. Lots of character, and the pizza is excellent. - sys, 12/26/1999

I guess this is good pizza if Domino's, Pizza Hut or Frozen are your benchmark. The dough is something like Bisquick with food coloring added. With that said, the atmosphere is sort of cool. A cheap place to get a cocktail, and if you're drunk enough, eat some pseudo pizza. This is a lounge lizard joint, not a restaurant. - John, 04/02/2009

Wow! Has this place changed . . . and most decidedly for the better! I've been coming here for a few years, but new owners took over Gino's North (not to be confused with or in any way affiliated with Gino's East) in February of 2007. Immediately, they scoured the place from top to bottom, put in new carpet that blended perfectly with the 1940's Art Deco interior (yes, it's mostly original!), expanded their hours and days of operation (open every day) and added a modern jukebox. They also hired some friendly new bartenders, who also wait the tables. But some things never change: like Peggy. She's the primary cook at Gino's and has been for over 20 years. She's also a long-time neighborhood resident who appreciates the diversity of Edgewater and the Gino's patrons. This place is finally realizing its potential as one of the most charming neighborhood pubs in all of Chicagoland. The kitchen is small, so the menu is limited. But Gino's is about quality and value, not fast food, and is probably best-known for Peggy's thin-crust pizza - the best in Edgewater. Parking can be tight in the area, but Gino's is just steps from the red line (the building is on CTA property), and a very short walk to either the Broadway or Sheridan bus stops. If you can't find parking on the street in front, just go a couple of blocks west (west of Broadway) where street parking is much more plentiful - you're still only 2 blocks away. The bar is open from 3 p.m. until 2 a.m. daily (opening at noon on Sundays during football season), and the kitchen is open from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. daily. - Mrs. D'Onofrio, 11/06/2007

Gino's North is *NOT* Gino's East! They're not even affiliated. That said, Gino's North has pretty good pizza -- they're thin crust is better than the thick -- and the beautiful art deco bar will surprise you. The atmosphere is friendly, but be prepared for non-stop television. - me3dia, 04/07/2003
