We love Gina's. Our family's vacations are never complete without a dinner out here. The clam linguini and eggplant parm' are two of my favorites. I dream of the house salads --- such delicious dressing!

Coming to the cape for 9 years and we just found Giba's. What a find. The service is so extremely nice that you won't believe it. We were party of 7 and they sat us in a special table outside. Waited 20 minutes. Food is exceptional. Service is beyond great. Only open Thursday to Sunday. No reservation but well worth... More

Get there early. Paradoxically Saturday night is a good night to go. Ambience is enjoyable especially outdoors or in the bar room. Service is friendly but can bet a tad slow with high customer volume. The food is relatively standard Italian and well done, some seafood selections impress.

Gina's By the Sea has been a fixture on Cape Cod for decades. Perched steps from the Mediterranean-like sands of Dennis, blending into a friendly array of summer cottages, Gina's is a one of a kind experience. Go for great drinks, dependable Italian cuisine (chicken parm is incredible, as is the shrimp scampi), and some outstanding daily specials. Gina's is... More

Crazed parking attendant (might have been the owner?) Told us there was a 1 hr 45 min wait. When we said ok, he said "did you hear what I said?" As if he couldn't believe we were staying. Service was ok, food ranged from ok (ravioli marinara) to gross (Gina's Scampi). The shrimp were old, the sauce was tasteless, the... More

Enjoyed a lovely dinner at Gina's, while vacationing on the cape. We all ordered something different and each meal was wonderful. Service was excellent and we enjoyed eating outside. If fills up quick and there may be a line but worth the wait.

Gina’s web site notes that the restaurant opens at 5:00 for dinner. We arrived at 5:00 on a Thursday to find the restaurant 90% filled. We were lucky to get a table! Soon the reasons for the restaurant’s popularity became apparent. My wife ordered the veal parmiagaina while I had the chicken parm, two old stand-by’s that we have had... More

Saturday night at Gina's. Long wait, as usual, but who cares? Friendly customers at the bar. Meet new people every year. Larry, Ross and the bartender always seem to remember us. Food just gets better every year. Waitstaff loves to talk and tell us about the latest. For us, it is a "do not miss" place on each visit to... More

We go to Gina's once or twice during each summer. We always love it. We used to try to go early so as not to have to wait. There are no reservations. Now we just go, put our name in, and go for a walk on the beach. It's so gorgeous to view the sunset and then go back and... More
