Gigio's has been in Evanston forever. Those of us from Evanston love it! I read it's greasy...take a paper towel and take the grease off. Pizza is greasy. Too greasy it is not. If you want a good slice of pizza made fresh everyday Gigio's is a must. You want an awesome sandwich, try the Beef and Sausage Combo with hot peppers and juicy. It is delicious. The staff is the same from when I was in high school. They are a cool bunch of guys. It's clean, affordable and good ! I moved from Evanston 21 years ago and when I visit I usually order from them. I ordered so much when I lived there I remember the phone number when I visit and order!\n\nDoris D\n

Great pizza. I personally have toured the premises here and even entered the walk-in fridge. The place is immaculately kept. Fresh ingredients are used. The owner has been around over three decades with this business. Unfortunately many Evanstonites might expect tofu or some form of California rendition on traditionally great New York style pizza - DON'T! And please don't write a review based on such ridiculous pretense.

Pros: New York Style means thin and greasy . . .

Cons: Too many veg-heads in Evanston to get this . . .

THIS IS THE BEST PIZZA PLACE IN TOWN - THOSE REVIEWS ARE CRAZY.

GIGIOS PASSES INSPECTION RATINGS NO PROBLEM AND HAS THE CLEANEST BASEMENT IN TOWN. I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THE OWNER TAKES PRIDE IN THE CLEANLINESS OF THE PLACE.

FOOD IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, PIZZA, SANDWICHES, FRIES, TACOS, AND BURGERS. AND YOU CAN'T BEAT THE PRICES.

DON'T LISTEN TO THOSE OTHER REVIEWS - STOP IN FOR A SLICE AND SEE FOR YOURSELF.

Simply do not go here. This is one of the dirtiest places I have ever seen. Several critters are in the bathrooms and the food is extraordinarily greasy. The restaurant also attracts a lot of bums and seedy-looking people and the workers there are very rude. You can find better pizza at almost any other pizza place and better anything else anywhere else that sells the same food.

Cons: Greasy, heart clogging food, dirty kitchen and bathroom

As you've already seen from Emilia's rating this isn't a good place to go. I'll list the reasons here:

1. Poor food choices. Food is literally dripping with grease and workers make no attempt to drain some of it for their own customers health. Their thin crust pizza is the only good thing they have here (thick crust is horrible) and other places have pizza just as good or better.

2. Rude service. You'll notice this if you are a regular customer they tend to have little respect and I have witnessed insulting remarks towards the more overweight customers.

3. Place is dirty. As Emilia said, they have serious sanitation problems. Also some glaring issues are ones like the old man who picks his nose, handles money, and then with his hands gives out food. Their are also roaches in the bathrooms sometimes and in the kitchen.

4. Incompetent service. In Evanston Gigio's is NOTORIOUS for screwing up orders.

PROS: Thin crust Pizza is only one
CONS: Unsanitary, bad service all around, poor food selection

Not your best choice. This is one of the cases when it pays to actually go to see the restaurant before ordering. The pizza- as long as it is delivered- it is good. But if you go to have a slice of pizza there- you'll discover that actually the hygiene is less than satisfactory. (and I am not reffereing only to cockroaches - overall it needs a lot of cleaning)

PROS: not the worst pizza
CONS: NEEDS CLEANING and pest control!
