Excellent spot for dinner in Salinas

Year in, year out, Gino's has proven to be a very hospitable place to have a very fine dinner in Salinas. The service is attentive, the food is very good and the price is fair... what's not to like?

My husband and I his brother and wife had a great experience for dinner at Ginos Restaurant in Salinas, California. It was the two brothers' birthdays. My brother in-law and I had the linguine pescadoro. It was fantastic. Linguine on the bottom, salmon, prawns, clams in the shell were on top. By the time we got through the seafood we... More

My friend and I shared plates and everything was excellent. The service was great even though we were there at an off time. A quaint place with ambiance inside and out.

Love this place it is a trip back to anyone's Italian childhood! Never have had a meal that was unacceptable. If something isn't to your liking it will be replaced. Gina is the best & most personable hostess! Thank you for keeping the tradition alive!

Been eating here for 10 years or so. Great restaurant and you absolutely must try the pumpkin bisque. I know it may sound weird but you don't want to miss this.

When a parking lot is completely full on a Tuesday night, you know it's good! Best Italian food I have ever had! The Artichoke Bisque was exquisite! The garlic bread melted in your mouth. My husband raved about the pepper crusted NY steak so much I thought he was going to lick the plate! Will be back again and again!!

Usually when you stop at a restaurant in the middle of farm land on a seemingly endless road, you don't expect much, but OH MY GOD! The food here is incredible. Fantastic service, fantastic selection, amazing drinks, and my fish and lobster ravioli were to die for. Will definitely be taking a detour to swing by here again.

Love Gino's daily specials. They always have wonderfully fresh and tasty fare. Hand's down the best restaurant in Salinas. Good wine selection and a full bar makes for a great relaxing local evening. This is a great family-owned restaurant that takes pride in all they do. If you're headed there on a Friday or Saturday evening its a good idea... More
