Don't confuse this neighborhood bar and restaurant with the "Gino's East" restaurants in other parts of Chicago, as Gino's North is independently owned and operated. With a recent, much-needed change in ownership/management came some major improvements, such as new carpeting, the addition of a working jukebox, expanded hours for the kitchen and bar, a friendly, diverse staff, and increasing popularity as a result. But one important attribute hasn't changed: Peggy, the long-time primary cook, is still there, churning out the finest pizzas in Edgewater. This is one of the last of Chicago's true neighborhood pubs that still serves food, and at some of the most affordable prices you'll find anywhere on Chicago's north side. With only five booths, table seating is somewhat limited at Gino's busiest dinner hours, but many patrons consume their hot and fresh pizza and pasta dishes at the bar, where seating is relatively plentiful. The art deco decor is postively charming, a reflection of the establishment's 1940's origins. Football fans will enjoy the upcoming festivities planned for Sunday afternoons, as well as the Sunday $2 blood marys. Best of all, the crowd is as diverse as the neighborhood, but most are regulars. They know a good place when they find it, which is exactly why they keep on coming back.
