Whenever I'm in the Salinas area I make it a point to have at least one meal here. They are always friendly and the staff goes out of the way to make sure you are satisfied. Wonderful food and service!! Enjoy...

Gino's is the special celebration restaurant in Salinas. Consistantly good food, good wine list, servers helpful and attentive. The large dining area with a fireplace is our prefered choice. Reservations a must. There is a small bar area, happy hour/food or order from the full menu in the limited seating bar area. A separate carry out available also.

We decided to give Gino's a try while spending the night in Salinas recently. My husband ordered the "small" pizza that he's had before but wasn't too impressed this time around. I had the steamed clams from the appetizer menu and they were wonderful; especially the broth. We always sit at the very small bar and were served by a... More

Visited Gino's three times while in Salinas and each experience was different. On the first visit, I ordered the Mediterranean pizza. It was pretty good but the crust was burnt on one side. I just cut that part out and ate the rest of the pizza. On the second visit, I ordered the Hawaiian pizza. OMG! The best Hawaiian pizza... More

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
