“A taste of home...”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

After our South-West exploits, we naturally wanted to eat out on our return to Oxford. That said, we were keen to have something light and simple after the early drive.

Italian was the decision and we went for Gino's - my old favourite for nearly fifteen years.

As always, we were welcomed to this family-run restaurant with a big smile and had all of our needs catered for. The service was excellent - no mean feat, considering the number of covers that changed hands whilst we were there!!

The food was great - good Italian home cooking (pizza and pasta), with some whitebait to start.

A great, simple finish to our holiday! I highly recommend here for a bit of home-cooked (albeit Italian) food!!

Reviewed July 29, 2012

If you like traditional Italian food, this is the best restaurant in Oxford. We have eaten there several times and always great food and value. Try the daily specials.

“Excellent food and value for money”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

The atmosphere was very nice and welcoming. The staff were excellent and gave great service.

We ordered a calzone and a pasta dish and both were very good so we shared half and half! I think this could be a nice place for a romantic dinner for 2 or family meal.

You feel like the food is authentic and it has a lot of flavour.

Only downside when we were there was a large party that made a LOT of noise but when they left it was nice and quiet.

Will definitely be back, it also does takeaway but don't be put off by this, the standard doesn't drop!
