Fine Italian

I really enjoy dining at Gino's. The food is always fresh & abundant. I especially like the lasagna which is succulent & delishicious. My second favorite here is the blackened fettuccine. The service here is of highest quality. Give this one a try if your not already a regular!

I really enjoy going to this restaurant. The wine selection is great. I usually order the Blackened Chicken Alfredo or Blackened Chicken Salad. The food is very good and you get plenty! No way are leaving hungry.

Best Italian food in Salinas. Family-owned and operated - this is not the pizza chain of the same name. Great food at good prices. Not fancy, but more like your Italian mama used to make. The back room can be cold despite the heat lamps so bring a sweater on cooler days. Bring your appetite!

My husband and I were staying at a B & B in Salinas for our 18th wedding anniversary so I made a dinner reservation for Gino's at 7:00 p.m. since it was pretty close by and I like Italian food. (I also looked at Trip Advisor's reviews and it was #2 for Salinas restaurants!). We were a bit early and... More

Excellent food - and a lot of it, great service too, we had the spaghetti carbonara and the manocotti, which were really good, but we had no room left for dessert!

Restaurants come and go in Salinas but Gino's is always a solid choice. Being Italian I am always a little reluctant to dine at restaurants offering the cuisine of my country, but Gino's features a wide menu. The Abalone Style Calamari Piccata is very good and I was never disappointed with any other dish. A lot of fresh choices are... More

There are very few places I go to locally that I can say are a sure thing, but Gino's is one of them. The blackened chicken is always a hit, as are the tortellini, and of course my favorite the calamari, however i recently brought a group of 12 in for lunch, so, of course the full gamete of plates...

Gino's has to be one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever eaten at! Our meal was so good. I had chicken parmigiano and it was delicious. Our waiter was awesome.
