Birthday dinner

We have been here on other occasions but most recently to celebrate a birthday.The food is always good. One is rarely disappointed. There's an outside covered patio that is bright and airy. They have a full bar and the staff is courteous.

This family run Italian restaurant offers a large selection of main courses which come with soup or salad and bread. The main courses are large enough for two persons. The calamari steak was very tender but unfortunately left a puddle of grease on the plate. Efficient and patient service. Very generous wine pourings. The artichoke bisque was outstanding. Nice atmosphere... More

I drive regularly from Santa Barbara County to San Jose on business, and wanted to try something more interesting than the chain restaurants along U.S. 101. This restaurant had a high rating and was well worth the two-mile detour off the freeway. This is a "Monterey style," Southern Italian ristorante in the middle of agricultural and non-touristic Salinas. A work... More

Stoops by for spaghetti and meatballs. I wasn't disappointed with the meal. The restrooms were very clean and the parking lot outside.

Gino's has been in Salinas for many years. Started by The Bozzo Family as a smallish and cozy restaurant a long time ago. We regularly ate here with our family and friends. As the years have passed Ralph Bozzo has continued the family tradition in a new location on Hwy 68. The food is consistently great and the environment is... More

We eat at Gino's at least once a month. Frequently, we order take out pizza, as well. Their daily specials are varied and excellent. Occasionally they make a mistake on our take out order but they give us a credit if that happens.

We were a group of friends, having dinner. The place was crowded and a bit noisy, yet pleasant. most of the dishes we had were good-to very good. the service was a bit lacking - took a while for us to place the order, the waiter was a bit off... All in all - a very nice evening with good... More

I visit this restaurant whenever I'm nearby and will go to dinner there weekly at a minimum. The owners deliver large portions of traditional Italian dishes updated with local ingredients. Everything is fresh, fresh, fresh. Service is excellent. The restaurant is broken into several rooms - you feel that you're in small setting even though the restaurant is quite large... More
