This italian restaurant is a treasure for Salinas. Beautiful setting, traditional menu and good wine selection make for a can't miss evening. The sun dried tomato,artichoke,chicken penne is heavenly. Costco has gift cards part of the year a must buy. The take out lasagna is a must get for parties. I got the vegetarian lasagna for a baby shower and... More

Let me premise this review by saying we were there on a busy Friday night, it was raining (so the outdoor seating could not be used) and there was a large party taking up the back half of the restaurant … The menu offered some very interesting entrees (including roast boar ragout) including many garnished the bounty of the Salinas...

This is a place where there are long waits and the food going out looks delicious. This is a local favorite and it was a lovely place to dine on a Sunday afternoon. Salads, pastas and appetizers were all delicious!

I don't think I would ever order a BBQ Chicken pizza, but someone turned me on to this one. Wow! It's great And Alison is a great waitress, really friendly and takes great care with her customers.

A few miles from our Vision Quest B&B, we enjoyed a delicious Italian style meal. Well-served and a good value.

The lady working the front desk at the Marriott where we were staying recommended this restaurant for our family. Consisted of two adults and two older teens. I try to eat at independently owned restaurants when I travel. We had a wonderful meal and would go back again. We had the cannelloni, ravioli, spaghetti, and salad. The desserts were also... More

I had the pleasure of eating at Gino's several times while on a recent travel assignment to the area. Each time a member of the family owners met me at the door and/or came by my table during my meal. The house salad is to DIE for! But, honestly never had anything that was not absolutely delicious. Excellent cuisine, attentive... More

I've been here several times for lunch while on business. I usually get an entree salad. Very good. And very friendly service.

Imagine a party with 50 guests and the restaurant forgets to make your order. The owner dropped the ball, not an employee. No apology, no taking responsibility... nothing. Won't make that mistake again. The dining in experience is fine but the take-out is something to approach with caution. The blackened chicken fettuccine is a family favorite.
