Dropped in on a weeknight & it was great

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... read 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!

I have reviewed Gino's a few times as we live in the neighborhood adjoining the restaurant. We visit once every few months. However, this visits experience was with an update to my other usually 5 star reviews of the establishment. Arrived at restaurant around 8:30 and selected patio seating. Picked up family from airport so a couple of us were... More

We have lived in the Boise-Meridian area for a while now, and friends and family have consistently recommended Gino's Italian Restaurant. Since we have traveled to Italy and have experienced the "real thing", we decided to give it a try... for lunch! Why lunch? Normally lunch prices are lower than at dinner in any restaurant, and the servings a bit... More

Our dinner was exceptional and the service by Eric and Kaden the very best ! We look forward to going back and also requesting the two servers. I am from Ohio and travel to Meridian, Idaho often -- I must remark that this is a very fine restaurant.

What a wonderful experience our family had at Gino's. The food was incredible and our waiter, Todd, was outstanding. We had a celebration and Todd helped to make our dining experience memorable. We had a fairly large group with members from 11 to 70 and everyone had a great time. Definitely will come back again.
