Really 4-4.5 stars. This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Treasure Valley because I know I will eat quality, well made food, the servers are the same, familiar faces and the establishment is well maintained and clean. We visit about once a month. I would recommend reservations for dining after 6:00. They are always packed during those "on"... More

I cant say enough about the food at Ginos. It is totesmagotes (lol). The best Italian I have found next to my Mothers.

Small and somewhat intimate place with fabulous food and exellent service. I have been there many times and have never had anything that wasn't wonderful. My favorites are the Caprese (sp?) salad appetizer, the special mushroom pasta that isn't on the menu but they will make if they have the mushrooms on hand, and the Shrimp Alfredo.

I will admit that I do not like the newer location when compared to the old location downtown. With that being said you will not find better service or an owner who cares more about his guest's experience than Gino. The food quality is very good and it is consistent. I have enjoyed Gino's for many years when I travel... More

I've been to Gino's a number of times. They used to be in downtown Boise. The old location was a little more romantic, but the new location is much more convenient (for me anyway). I almost always get the boar shank and it is awesome! I feel like a caveman when I'm eating it. It is served with gnocci, which... More

We have eaten at Gino's several times and the experience has been great each time. The menu is the same you find in Italy. Food and wine are both top notch and the service is unsurpassed. I would recommend Gino's to anyone who enjoys Italian food

We celebrated my granddaughter's graduation there with about 14 other people. The service was good and friendly. I wouldn't say the food was excellent but good. Although, others in our group highly praised the food. So, think it must be individual taste. I didn't hear anyone complain about the service or food. It was too warm to eat outside but... More

Excellent food, service and ambiance! Very accommodating and attentive. Gino and / or his wife are most times on site to ensure a wonderful experience. I have traveled to Italy many times and would put Gino's right at the same level.

Not so amazing everything. For a fine dining establishment, everything fell just slightly short. The menu was so long so I felt like I settled on my choice. Our busser kept asking if we were done "working" on our food. It's not work when you're enjoying it. The wine list wasn't very impressive and our service was fine, but just... More
