We were really thinking a Breakfast Burrito sounded amazing, but our walk around Bodega Head took a bit longer than we thought, so we hit Ginochio's at lunch time. This meant we got to enjoy the amazing, huge, yummy nachos, and they did not disappoint!

The breakfast burritos were awesome and I regret not returning to try their lunch items. We called in the order and it was ready faster than we thought. Great place to eat in Bodega Bay.

This place is still so amazing even tho it has changed a bit due to Covid. You can no longer sit inside at their amazing view / tables, but the outdoor seating in the enclosed patio area is still great! Social distanced tables with umbrellas...and astounding views of the bay are still the norm. The food remains incredible! Breakfasts are fantastic. Some mornings we had a cup of coffee with monkey bread, & others were filled with breakfast burritos, brisket hash & eggs, bacon & eggs, fresh brewed coffee too! Lunches were delightful - brisket sandwich, wonderful grilled crab sandwiches, burgers and the best clam chowder. Can’t wait until they bring back the raviolis, tho! Service is special too! Alicia and her crew are the absolute best and filled with passion for what they do.More

Elitia , the owner was a sweetie! I had the steak breakfast burrito and couldn’t finish it. My wife had the brisket hash and eggs and it was yummy? I would love to try their lunch menu

You can’t go wrong here! Breakfast that is done right. Lunches are amazing. I think we’ve had everything on the menu - Monkey bread with bacon, breakfast wraps, brisket hash... Incredible BBQ - ribs, brisket, sausage, burgers... DO NOT forget the clam chowder! Don’t miss...out on the raviolis! Just eat everything! Nice views of the bay with indoor and outdoor seating. Service is killer too!More

Stumbled upon this place on a cold foggy Tuesday. All I can say is there's something for everyone, but BBQ is their thing. Recommend both the pork or brisket, but while there a woman came in to say their fish tacos (not fried) where the...best she's ever had. The owner is genuine and nice along with all their staff.More

There are not a lot of options for breakfast in Bodega Bay, but I would return to Ginochio's even if there were several. Orders at taken at the counter at this small restaurant situated adjacent to Gourmet au Bay. My wife ordered the cluck and...squeal - scrambled eggs, bacon, home fries and a slice of toast. I went for the breakfast bacon burrito that included lots of juicy bacon, scrambled eggs, salsa, cheese, and sour cream. Did I mention juicy bacon? It was a beautiful day so we sat out on the deck enjoying the view of the bay while waiting for our orders to be delivered. Each of us enjoyed our bountiful breakfast fare though I may have sworn off bacon for the remainder of 2019.More

Stopped in here for lunch with my wife and daughter. We had the fish tacos, chowder, and brisket sando. All three were delicious! The outdoor seating was gorgeous and the service friendly, helpful and prompt. Clean restrooms, easy access (once you know where it is)...and good value for money will make this a must stop for us anytime we are in Bodega Bay!More

I have never seen gray clam chowder before. It wasn’t very busy and we had to wait forever for two bowls of chowder. In fact, we were the only people there. It wasn’t very hot either and served in a throwaway bowlMore
