Dinner at Gino's is a guaranteed reliably good dinner. It's one of those places we choose for get-togethers because everyone can agree on it and everyone has an enjoyable meal. This time I had the Ahi Tuna with tempura avocado and a salad. The tuna was deliciously fresh, the avocado tempura like butter, and dessert (mud pie shared among the... More

We love this restaurant and decided to try it for take out pizza on the way home from a day long SF visit. We called ahead and it was hot out of the oven at the time we were suppose to pick it up! We had meat and vegetarian pizzas. The veggies had sun dried tomatoes, artichoke with fresh garlic... More

This place has highly unique selections along with the tried and true Italian dishes. Their pizza lets one share dinners to make the prices highly affordable. The wait staff goes out of their way to make sure your visit is as nice as possible. Plus great butter and bread baskets.

I have had Gino's in my contacts on my phone for 10 plus years. Everyone adores their blackened chicken fettuccine, however, everything is delicious. Service, atmosphere, price, location and they have a bar. I use their take out menu often for gatherings and personal family dinners. When I hear that a local hasn't been to Gino's I am startled.

We arrived to a packed restaurant and were told it was a 30 minute wait(always book is sound advice) and we were glad we waited. Food was delicious, we tried the nightly specials of Lasagne and Seafood Linguine, I had two Margherita cocktails and they were heavenly! Nice atmosphere and the waiter was very helpful, a good evening😃

Very good steak (it'd been awhile since I had a GOOD one so I appreciated it). Staff friendly and helpful. Very good experience. Less pricey than you'd think. In fact, a bargain!!!!

This was a genuine Italian restaurant, unlike many we have been to in various US states. The service was helpful and the meal was delicious. We returned the following evening.

Gino's was on a list of restaurants (in the "non chain" section), given to us by our hotel upon request. Gino's was a great choice! The food was tasty, nice atmosphere, and friendly staff. We had clams, soup, Cesar salad, and garlic bread, all were good choices. The dinners we saw going to other diners smelled very good and looked... More
