Small, dark bar area. Front room a little more airy, back dining area can be romantic. Food has always been superb. Popular, with a crowded and small parking area. Mostly open seasonally and weekends. CALL BEFORE YOU GO! You will enjoy!

I don't understand the few negative reviews but everyone likes something different. For me the sauce (gravy for some) is wonderful. We can't get past ordering the veal parm. It is wonderful. A few years ago I would finish the whole meal, but now I just finish the veal and have the pasta the next day. The waitstaff works hard... More

Had a delicious end of summer meal this Saturday. I'm a long-time fan and this was Gina's at its best. Clams casino were great, swordfish fresh and delicious, fra diavalo just right and the usual warm and friendly service.

Very rustic seaside setting. Open thursday thru sunday and no reservations. Small bar packed with locals. We got there at 530 and were seated by 6. I loved everything about this place. Inexpensive, large servings, homey atmosphere and lots of people watching. There was so much food we ate half of it at home the next night. This is not... More

Ate here all summer, at least six times. The fresh seafood specials are the way to go. Swordfish, Shrimp, Mussels they have great starter specials also. Oysters and Garlic bread were our go to. This place has been around awhile. Wicked nice service. We grabbed a bottle of the house dijon salad dressing it lasted two days.

Go early and walk if you can. Small parking lot with valet. The valet attendant is the hardest working man on the cape. Food was great, staff was nice. Great time.

I brought a group of ladies to Gina's last week and it was their first time ever to the Cape...They are still raving about the mussels marinara, shrimp scampi, garlic bread and wonderful service. As a local resident, I have the pleasure of enjoying Gina's most of the year (they are only open April - Nov. However, whenenver someone come... More

I moved here recently and heard great reviews. I was disappointed with every aspect of this "expensive" dining experience. It is a white tablecloth restaurant with a very casual atmoshere. The plate presentation was unappealing and the salad was blah. Also they only serve it with honey mustard vinagarette,no other choices. The waitress was hurried and seemed like she was... More
