Gigio’s Pizzeria has been serving the community for almost 50 years, making it the oldest pizza place in Evanston. First opened in 1968 as a pickup and delivery operation, the original owners later expanded to accommodate sit down dining several years later. Brining their culinary knowledge all the way from Italy and later New York City, Gigio’s specializes in New York style thin crust pizza. Yet our menu options go beyond pizza, as we offer everything from burgers, hot dogs, Italian beef and sausages, to amazing tacos, burritos, salads and homemade soups. We pride ourselves in the freshness of our ingredients. Everything is made from scratch on site to ensure the quality of our food. Whether it’s our famous pizza sausage recipe, where we remove the meat from the bone ourselves so we can have complete control over the amount of fat used, to our pizza dough made fresh each morning. We make about 1,250 lbs. of dough each and every week, letting each batch sit in our spacious walk in cooler overnight to develop the undeniable flavor in our crust that has kept our customers coming back for decades.
