The restaurant is a fun, laid-back place. You can feel free to pull out a marker and sign the walls along with the other millions of signatures.
Everything was awesome. The pizza takes about 30 minutes to make, so be sure to order some salads or appetizers. If you don''t want pizza they have other great Italian foods to choose from. The atmosphere is really laid back and is a perfect place for people of all ages.

Now to food... The restaurant serves...PIZZA, but also good soups, salads and a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. At first when you look at the menu, the pizzas seem very expensive: abot $10 for small, $20 and up for medium and large. But when the waiter brings the pizza to the table you'll understand why: they are HUGE! These are Chicago style, thick crust pizza which weight several pounds each. That's what I call eating (They are really good cold as well!) In fact, to explain how big these pizzas are: the waitress told us that usually a couple orders a small pizza to share. We ordered a medium... and took half of it back to the hotel.
Another thing worth trying on the menu is their Minestrone soup. Spicy, hot, a perfect companion to a thick slice of pizza.

But don’t go to Gino’s just for the food (as if that weren’t reason enough!) Take a pen, marker, or liquid paper, and leave your mark. The dimly lit cavernous restaurant is covered from floor to ceiling with patron’s declarations of love, anarchy, and other graffiti. The bathrooms are the only place that have been spared.
Go at odd hours—2 or 3 in the afternoon. Otherwise, be prepared to wait a minimum of 45 minutes before getting a table.
