Dinner before Cape Cod Playhouse Theatre

Only open Thursday-Sunday, gave it a try on Friday night before the summer theatre. Was thinking 5:40pm would be fine, as it opens at 5pm...well get there early as we had a 1:15 minute wait. Beautiful night so sat on the deck with wine. Normally would not wait that long, but the food looked... read more

This place seems to be some sort of a hype amongst the locals, since everbody seems to know everybody here. They have created some sort of Italian originality myth around this place, but every Italian food adept will walk away in tears. We started it off with a small mixed antipasti platter and you would think that this is a... More

If you love steamed mussels then this is the place. They are steamed in a tomato, garlic sauce, don't be afraid to sop up that sauce with the Italian bread. It would be a sin to waste it. Their signature dish is Shrimp Scampi a la Gina's, plenty of garlic, plenty of flavour! I love their eggplant parmiagiana. It is... More

Don't be fooled by the kick back, non stuffy surroundings - the Italian food is outstanding. I had the veal park...my wife had the chicken parm ... And she blessed it with a rousing " maybe the best I ever had!" Guess there is a reason they are only open four days a week during peak season ... The place... More

We have been trying to eat at Gina's for many years but there was always a long wait. We went Saturday night wait was supposed to be an hour but was only 15 minutes tops. We were excited to finally get to try this place. Started off with the clams casino appetizer and the served six clams. Loved it my... More

Gina by the Sea Dennis, MA Toward the ocean, right near the water is this quaint Italian restaurant. Sat at the bar. From what I heard from chatter it is always crowded And no reservations. Seems if you want to eat here it is either early or late. I had the chicken parmigiana with spaghetti and a glass of Cabernet.... More

We live nearby and try Gino's every year. Once again, the food was all good but not great as expected for the prices go. The special salmon was requested rare and served medium. The witness mentioned this to the cook, who didn't appear to understand how to cook salmon. The creamed spinach was served warm and quickly became cool as... More
