Shared a cheese pie with the entire family and was really really good! Soft easily chewable crust and really tasty. Decent price. Highly recommend it!

Small location but worth the wait or get it to go. Love their thin crust pizza and their calzone is really good. I think it's a Santa Barbara hidden gem. Good lunch specials too.

I had a delicious 'slice' lunch here a few weeks ago while visiting Santa Barbara. I sat by the wall and watched the world go by. Good New York style pizza, fast, friendly service.

My husband and I tried Gino's for the first time and was surprised at the delicious food for such a small restaurant. The prices are reasonable and portions large. They serve can sodas and beer but no wine, which seems strange for a pizza place....The staff is very friendly. Will definitely go back the next time we are in Santa Barbara.More

We stopped by around 8pm after a water polo match. Staff was friendly & welcoming. 4 tables, a large Arrabiata & Med salad was delicious & $25. Fed 3 adults with 1 very hungry athlete. Great find, simple w/o sacrifice to quality. Should be on...your short list for good pizza.More

NY style fold it and eat it slice of heaven. Eat it hot and fresh for best results. Crust is perfect!!!

I first ate a slice of Gino's handmade pizza up in Vancouver when it was a hole in the wall joint on Robson Street. It's now a hole in the wall in Santa Barbara and still makes some of the best pizza in town. Great...staff attitude, good pizzas. Hard combo to beat.More

Just plain fantastic. Cozy little place. Really great staff and pizza to die for. Easily best I've had since coming out here from East Coast. Whenever I'm in Santa Barbara this is a stop.

This is as good or better than the pizza I grew up eating in NJ/NY. I would eat here every day if I had my 25-year old self's metabolism. The local pizza chains often win awards, but that is because they have more stores, so...more people go there, but their pizza is worse than frozen. Gino's made me give up frozen pizza.More
