Well worth the drive

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... read 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.

We needed a good dinner after running around in the Meridian area. We knew Gino's from Boise, before they moved. It is still wonderful. Nice atmosphere, friendly service and great food. I had the Salmon special with horseradish cream sauce. It was very smooth, and not overpowering. Husband had putenesca and said it was really good. We were both pleased... More

The place was clean and inviting. Service was top notch and wow the food was excellant. I especially love the bread, with olive oil mix to dip into. This was the best down home Italian yet.

A really awesome Italian meal and restaurant. Almost like sitting in a villa on the patio. Open. Food was super good. Service was excellant. My only criticism is they seemed to be a little "confused" when we got there. After that period, they settled down and it was very good.

We were excited and impressed when we entered Gino's everything about the staff was pleasant and professional. The food however did not at all reflect the service. My pasta dish was unseasoned and the meat was overcooked. my wife's lasagna was bland and the sauce tasted like it's been in a can. Overall we were disappointed.

Every time we dine at Gino's it is an absolute pleasure. Meals are prepared and presented as food art. Servers are knowledgeable and very helpful. Every time we've been in, Gino himself comes around to make sure your experience is up to your expectations and it always is!
