Gigio's is the best pizza in Uptown! They are hands down the best place to go to at anytime. They also have delicious italian beef's, wings, and pasta. Special thanks to Ray for the great service and food.

The gigios pizza on Broadway used to be good, the pizza they delivered to my place was nasty. The cheese was stretched out and watery, and the tomato paste tasted thined out, instead of thick. When I called in to complain a week later, they...wouldn't even think about delivering me another pizza, or give a discount. Unprofessional.More

This pizza place has been here for decades because it is delicious New York Style pizza. They are pretty quick with whole pizzas but offer slices for those who can’t wait. The ingredients have remained consistent through the years... it’s a neighborhood gem!

I fell in love with Gigio's Pizzeria during my first visit. The pizza was huge, NY style slice, and tasted great! The taste reminded me of Papa John's pizza, which led me to ordering another huge slice of it. Gigio's isn't a fancy pizza place,...but it does do the job, and the place is decent enough to dine in at, but not big enough for big groups. I'm assuming most that order from Gigio's Pizzeria live in the Uptown neighborhood, and are long time customers. Most I'm assuming order takeout, or stop in while in the area, but for the looks of it; I don't think it gets very crowded. As for pizza; Gigio's Pizzeria is one of the gems in the Uptown neighborhood, and looks like it has been around for years. As for location, it sits within 200 meters from CTA Wilson, Harry S Truman College, and right on the strip next to Uptown Bikes. If you are ever in the area, its worth stopping in for a slice; maybe two or three : )More

Moving family into the area, walked a couple blocks to a hole in the wall. Got three slices and drinks, relatively quick service for just opening for the day. Plenty of meat on the slice...good price!

This place is not at the greatest location, a little unsafe to be honest and the inside isn't the most presentable but the pizza is amazingly tasty. Probably one of the best thin crust pizza ever with just the right amount of grease. LOL. Two...thumbs up.More

Don't let the funky atmosphere turn you off. This was one of the best pizzas ever. We enjoyed the vegetarian pizza the best. However I think the sausage pizza is also excellent. The staff is friendly and the owner is fabulous. He is from Palermo....I highly recommend his pizza and other dishes ( we had takeout. )More

These guys have it down, when it comes to great NY style pizza. Good amount of toppings excellent sauce, great cheese distribution, PIE SLICES! Great delivery, and delivery times. Other recommended menu items, are the hand cut fries and spicy wings combo with a soda.
