What a fantastic place to dine! Everything on the menu is fantastic, especially the blackened chicken fettuccine, and good old fashioned spaghetti and meatballs! The atmosphere is wonderfully family-like, and the staff is fantastic. Here's a tip: Make reservations early! They usually pack-out very quick.

Gino's never disappoints. The service is excellent, friendly, just right. Every time I eat there with friends our food comes to the table looking wonderful, just the right temperature, fresh, and mouthwateringly delicious. I have been eating at Gino's since 1998. Whether you are enjoying lunch with colleagues, a birthday celebration with friends, even a retirement party, they know how... More

Gino's is the best Italian restaurant that I have eaten at. If you want old school Italian then this is the place to go. Be sure to make a reservation because tables fill up fast.

I have eaten here many times. The food is consistently good. Place gets very busy so reservations are a must. Bar area is very small and noisy. Locals meet here for happy hour.

Love their lunches and dinners. One of my favorite is the artichoke soup. I don't tend to experiment with the meals, just like my spaghetti with meat sauce, My husband tries something new each time and is never disappointed.

Another great meal at Ginos. Go figure they seem to hit the nail on the head every time. You can't get a bed meal if you tried at this place. Enjoy!!

The food and service are excellent. You can't go wrong with lunch or dinner. I have hosted two beautiful baby showers there. They were a hit. And the garlice cheese bread is a must!!

My last visit to Gino's was just okay. I had the sand dabs which were breaded but the breading was falling off.....could have been crisper, in my opinion. My friend had the squash raviolis which he totally enjoyed.

Thank smwnyl
