We were hungry and stuck in a hotel room on a Sunday night with some ill in-laws who were very fussy about what they would eat so we decided to order through menulogue from Gina's. The food we ordered was inexpensive and delivered pretty quickly, some pizzas and a pasta. The pasta was watery and not tasty and the pizzas... More

Gina's has long been known for its great service and loud and busy restaurant, last weekend was no exception. However, food quality was not as good as in the past, I was the only one (of six) that really enjoyed my meal. Two of our group randomly seemed to get really sweet pasta, almost like the sugar was mistaken for... More

The staff are very friendly, a bit over enthusiastically at times - though to be fair, I think they were just responding to the encouragement from the others in my group. I went simple with my food choice and selected an Arrabiatta. I have to say it was beautiful. Full of flavour and with a good tang of heat like... More

Being Italian myself, I'm quite picky when it comes to Italian restaurants. Gina's passed with flying colours! You walk in and are greeted by friendly, vivacious staff who will have your whole table chatting and laughing. The food is full of flavour and the portions are very generous. If you want authentic Italian, don't look past this lovely establishment!

My partner had been here several times and had good meals and a fun time. Our arrival was mixed with us being turned away from a preferred table only to be told it was available after sitting elsewhere. The restaurant was not well heated but was otherwise comfortable and the waiting staff attentive. My partner ordered a diet coke and... More

It was our second visit but first time for lunch. They mentioned it as an express lunch. The service was quick and good. We ordered PENNE CON POLLO (With pan-fried chicken in a creamy garlic sauce topped with Parmesan) with extra mushroom and capsicum. It was really awesome man.. was the best Italian experience we ever had.

We booked Gina's Restaurant as it was close to our Hotel. It turned out to be a great decision as the authentic Italian food was the best we have had in Auckland this trip. The service was excellent and the overall cost of the night (3 couples) was extraordinarily reasonable. I would not hesitate in recommending Gina's to other diners

Having visited Gina's several times now, we continue to enjoy our evenings there with our family and friends. If you understand the vibrant environment which they offer, you will enjoy their energy and Italian enthusiasm. You enjoy your very tasty food accompanied by singing from the fun-loving chefs in the kitchen and the chat between waiting staff in Italian. Although... More

I went here with a group of friends for wine and pizza. The staff were fantastic, very helpful and the service was fast and friendly (what more could you want). There were a few GF diners in our group, so we decided to have GF pizza and they were fresh, crispy and delicious. Lots of wine on offer, so we... More
