The Menu has excellent choices however, the daily off the menu specials are always surprising & delicious

By far their blackened chicken fettucini is the best I've ever had. Everything here is delicious including their salads, which makes it difficult to decide which dish to order. Our out of town guests always want to eat at this local place--and many order a second dish just to take home with them.

We met up with friends here, and all 4 of us really enjoyed our food. We sat out on the patio, which was delightful, and the servers were very friendly.

Gino's has been around a long time and it's a fairly popular place to go. Unfortunately, it's primarily popular due to its location, size, and the fact that it's one of only two "authentic" (that is, not a chain restaurant) Italian restaurants in Salinas. They have good food, but nothing that justifies the prices. The best thing I had was... More

Just walked up to Gino's maybe five minutes ago. A waiter walked up to check out the table arrangements. I smiled and said hello. He said nothing turned around and said nothing. So guess what i did turned around and walked out. My gf and I usually love to go to Gino's but I'm afraid I will not be going... More

Food was great. I had the Spaghetti Arturo (olive oil, garlic and bread crumbs). It was amazing. We came with a party of 8. We ordered 5 entrees and two sides. (no alcohol, sodas or coffee) The bill was over $100. I didn't even think about it until after we left. The charges just don't make sense. I guess it's... More

Fresh pasta dishes are the best to order. Local wines are featured monthly, you cannot miss with the special's they feature. My favorite is the fettuccine pescatore with great shrimp and seafood over fettuccine, love it!! The staff is exceptional, attentive and friendly. The best restaurant in Salinas hands down.

Had a chance to have dinner at ginos while we were visiting tha salinas Area. Right away when I drove up and saw a full parking lot I knew this had to be a great dining spot. The food was great, prices reasonable and had an enjoyable dinner
