“Fifty Visits and Counting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The food is great and the service excellent (especially Kourtney). Interesting menu, but limited wine selection.

Don't let the strip mall location fool you. This place is worth visiting.

“A little expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

I thought the prices were a little high for what you get. The food was good but not anything exceptional. The service was OK.

“Been coming here for many years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We like Gino's. The Bolognese is very good, along with the Chicken Parmesan. His Red Pepper Soup is probably the best soup out there, but he doesn't make it often enough. Service can be spotty, but once you realize that dinner is good and the staff is friendly, it's all OK. We can enjoy a glass of wine, talk and not feel rushed. It's also wonderful to have a non-chain restaurant in Federal Way and Gino's location is out of the way.

“Interesting selection of food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

WE have been to Gino's on three occasions. The first was the best and quite a surprise. The last visit, I ordered grilled tuna but the center was still frozen. That was our last visit. If they could maintain consistency, this would be a great place.

“inconsistent”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

It's a gamble at this restuarant. Sometimes they get it right on, and other times it's as though a clearly different cook is cooking. For the prices paid it should be more consistent.
Federal Way lacks for good eats so maybe this place survives simply by attrition.

The waitress can also be rude and apathetic is a good word for it. Maybe these people should appreciate the public supports them by being patrons, rather than treating the public like they are doing all of us a favor by being in a hole in the wall restuarant.

A truly good restuarant will always provide what you expect after having a good experience with them. That is NOT the case with this place.
