Nice place to go for lunch or dinner

This is a really nice family run Italian restaurant. It is a favorite with locals and is especially popular with the business lunch crowd. They have several trade mark dishes. My favorites are the pesto pasta with sun dried tomatoes and pine nuts, and the artichoke bisque soup (this is a local... read more

Anything you order will be grand and satisfying in flavor. You'll love the Artichoke Bisque. It's to die for! But I bet you'll never be able to compare this blackened chicken fettuccine to anywhere else! This yummy buttery sauce which has a spice to it makes this dish a hit! The fettuccine is cooked to perfection as is the chicken.... More

We had to be in Salinas yet again, and because there are not really that many good dining options we decided on Gino's. It appears to be a very popular spot with locals as there was a wait and this was on a Thursday night. There are several dining areas, but we were given a noisy converted area that used... More

Judy and I had a wonderful lunch at Gino's today, and while it marked no special occasion the food and service were both special, indeed (the bussed even excelled). Judy shared her artichoke/tomato bisque with me, and it was a truly lovely soup. My lasagna and her ravioli were very well prepared, and the Cassata cake (chocolate ganache, vanilla custard,...

A family owned a operated restaurant, Gino's is more like sharing a meal in a friend's home, then eating in a restaurant. We have been coming here since their mother and father started it and have watched them evolve and grow. The ingredients often comes from their own gardens. It is Italian at its' best! Say, Hi!"
