Great authentic Italian. Food is wonderful, staff is friendly. Fun place for a great meal. Gino's has been in the Valley for quite some time and has a very god reputation.

First time at Gino's... We lucked out and got a table against a wall with a little more privacy. The service was good, especilly appreciated that water glasses were consistently filled. All four of us enjoyed our food. I did not receive the pasta type I ordered but the sauce was correct and the dish was filled with the veggies... More

Been there twice and will be there again. Nice up-scale adventure in a casual environment. Excellent menu and a staff that pays a lot of attention to detail. Can't ask for a better night out.

Went to Gino's for my yearly fix of their great Linguini a la Vongole, and was not let down. The quality was excellent as well as their friendly service. I recommend also to try their Beef Carpaccio or the Salmon. Wine list is one of the best. Everything my friends had were also excellent.

Love the food and they have a good selection of wine. Loved the atmosphere when it was downtown as it seemed more "Italian" but this one is nice. Staff is friendly and service is excellent. Will be returning for a birthday dinner as it is a great place to go. Also is always busy so reservations are recommended.

Gino's is our special place to go to get a taste of Italy. The food and atmosphere are outstanding, as well as the service. We enjoy it as a couple and for family celebrations. Gino checks on each table throughout the evening and makes sure you are taken care of properly.

The best italian food in Idaho and a huge menu and wine list. Don't let the location fool you this place is great. Reservations are reccommended as this joint can get busy.

Just had a fantastic dish of fish plated on fresh mozzarella and tomatos at Gino's. Admittedly I don't generally order anything there except their wonderful house specialities but was tempted by this daily special. It was a good choice. Fish was cooked to perfection. Must have been a "fishy" evening as my companion ordered the seafood lasagna. He reported it... More
