I went to lunch at Gino's with two fiends, and we had a wonderful time. Consistently good food and great service. I order the sand dabs, fries, and cole slaw ($15) off the daily specials, and it was delicious. The cole slaw was very good, with the usual cabbage, carrots, green onions, and dressing, but included lettuce finely sliced. The... More

Gino's offers an Italian cuisine. The food was good and the service was great. The only downfalls was parking was limited and prices for dinner was on the high side I'm not sure if this is a place to go on a budget.

My husband and I came here after a local had suggested it to us and it did not disappoint! I am an Italian and am very picky when it comes to my Italian food! The food here is spectacular, I already want to go back! We also had a super nice/funny waiter who made the experience even more wonderful!

I should have guessed being on the west side of town this was a yuppie spot, somewhere to impress the impressionable The price for distinctly average pasta was a joke, the sauce was bland and did little to improve the over cooked pasta, I suppose it would have been OK if I was drinking alcohol with it, which is what...

Friends of ours from LA dropped in on us & wanted to take us out to dinner. So we suggested Gino's about 10 minutes from us. This has always served us well in the past as it has a high reputation among locals for quality. Our friends had calamari & linguini & clams, my wife had manicotti & I had... More

The food was just ok. Not sure what all the hype is about this place! Maybe I just expected more bit to be honest it wasn't any better than Olive Garden. I'm not into chain restaurants I tend to enjoy mom and pop shop restaurants and that was the reason for the visit. This place just didn't come through with... More

My family and I have dined here many times over the years. Every time the food has been outstanding and the service has been impeccable. This is a perfect place for a family dinner, special occasions or business lunches. I have recommended this restaurant to a number of friends and family and they thoroughly enjoyed their dining experience at Gino's.... More

Mama Gina's meatballs are the best. Sometimes we just order the meatballs and a salad for lunch. Reception is always friendly, seating is elegant. The Caesars salad is great!

We had a wonderful family birthday party in the back room. Lots of fun and great service! There is a large area on the back patio that is good for large groups. There are heaters to keep you warm, and the area allows groups to enjoy a more noisy atmosphere than the typical fine dining in the front areas.
