We headed to Gino's to celebrate several birthdays while in Idaho in July. I was pleased and surprised to find gluten-free noodles on the menu. The owner came over multiple times to check on us and the service- excellent. I loved the creme brûlée for dessert, the coffee good and strong. Delightful experience while in Idaho.

Great local restaurant, nice ambiance too. The owner often comes around to make sure everyone is truly happy and enjoying their meal. I am never disappointed with my entree and the wine selection is great too! Now that Gino's moved to Meridian it is less than 1 mile away.

Enjoyed every bite of the penne arrabiata (a spicy dish) I ordered. Delicious bread with garlic olive oil dip. Nice wine. Great service. Delicious.

This is some of the best authentic Italian food I have ever had. A incredible menu and food. Also some great house seasonal drinks to go with it. This place is a little out of the way. But we'll worth the drive. The owner visited with us and the Staff was incredible

I used to love going to Gino's when it was in downtown Boise. Since they moved, I don't go as often because it just feels like such a long drive to me (I live in SE Boise). But every time I do go, I could just kick myself for not going sooner, because the food, service, atmosphere, etc. is so... More

A business friend and I decided to try Gino's for lunch. We were in the neighborhood and my friend had eaten there several times and also for many years when it was in downtown Boise. We both ordered salads I ordered the "Salade Freddo/Caldo" which was a huge, delicious looking mound of fresh vegetables sautéed to perfection and topped with... More

My husband took me to dinner for a special birthday. The food was delicious, the server was attentive and very knowledgeable about wine, & the bus boy was there for our every need & the restaurant owner, Gino stopped by to chat to be sure we were taken care of. It doesn't get any better. I highly recommend it. Kathy... More

We have just moved to the area from Las Vegas, the home to many truly great dining establishments. Tonight I read several comments on Trip Advisor about a small neighborhood place in Meridian, Idaho called Gino's. What a delight! Stepping in the door the aroma perked my attention which was only the beginning. I would put this on par with... More

First of all Gino, the owner, is very loud and rude to customers. Their food is not great and with so many other Italian restaurants in town don't waste your money on this place.
