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.

I love Gino's! The food is delicious! A tad pricey but worth it. If your considering a home party, schedule your party servings, reasonably priced. Reservations recommended.

I have gone to this popular restaurant in Salinas one time and had great food and good service, the sister restaurant Angelina's in Toro park is one of our favorites too. Limited offerings but all done with quality. Try the pizza.

Great restaurant. Only problem is portions are so big you have to take some home which is fine unless you are on the road. Try a salad and an starter portion and it is enough for almost anyone. Make a reservation if you can - or be prepared to wait.
