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.

We discovered Gino's in a hotel booklet, thought we would give it a try. So glad we did. A good sign the car park was full and there was a queue. We had not made a reservation and didn't think we would be seated, we were very lucky and was seated in ten minutes. Service was great, lovely fresh home... More

I've always wanted to go here, and got the chance to recently. The parking always looked packed, and it certainly was that night, and it was a Thursday. We had to park down the street by the apartments, which is okay, we can walk. We had 6 pm reservations, which it seems like we really needed them. What was nice... More

Gino's was good. Just good, not great. Service was attentive and the ambiance was nice. Portions were good for what you paid - entrees came with soup or salad and bread. If someone said we were going there for dinner I wouldn't object, but it also wouldn't be my first recommendation.

Dinner was great. There was plenty of food, and it was delicious! Parking was a bit of a issue. Their parking lot is the size of a postage stamp. We parked at the strip mall across the street. I'm not sure if you're supposed to do that, but like "living on the edge", so we did it anyway. After we... More

Some people rave about this Salinas institution, we think it is OK but somewhat pricey for what you get and while we respect their Sunday closing, that is the day we often tend to enjoy Italian food so a drive to Monterey results. Have had some excellent fresh fish dishes there but we find the Italian standards just average. Service... More
