We've been eating at Gino's for many years. Their artichoke bisque soup is fabulous! Service is always great and portion sizes are very big. At Christmas, we decided to order several dishes to bring home for a gathering rather than cook. I ordered 5 different pasta dishes and they were ready at the promised time. I brought them home and... More

Cozy place with good service but food was just okay. I asked them to hold the garlic on my dish but when they delivered it, they said there was already garlic in the tomatoes and it turned out to be a lot of garlic. I would have ordered something else had I known.

My wife and I had dinner at Gino's. We asked and the waiter said the portions were generous, so we skipped appetizers. When our entrees arrived, the waiter was correct; neither of us finished our entrees. My wife had eggplant parmesan; it was salty, heavily breaded with a mediocre tomato sauce. I had seafood pasta with tomato sauce; it was... More

We were just traveling through the area and thought we would try this place. Blacked chicken with fettuccine was excellent. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Gino's is a very popular restaurant in Salinas. They are particularly known for their calamari both steak and the appetizer. Decent wine list with a focus on local and Italian wines. Don't hesitate to eat here. However if in a large group I have noticed that the servers seem to be overwhelmed. When I have eaten solo or as a... More

Come here during the week lunch hour and you will find the restaurant bustling with locals, business clients and visitors. The Blackened Chicken Fettucini is popular and you will always go home with a to-go box to have later. The salads are also delicious and large. The service is wonderful, staff is friendly. Full service bar and abundant wine list.

Low cost by Monterey Peninsula Standards, yet pricey by Salinas Standards. Last I checked Frank and his brother did the majority of the cooking, yet I am sure of at least one more cook. Authentic Italian they may still grow their own seasonings as they did 20 years ago. None finer in Salinas.

Geno's has always been a pleasant stop when going out for a bite to eat. Most of of the time i have been able to sit without waiting. But when i do wait the nice bar has a great array of drinks to shorten the wait. Great people. Great food.
