Gina's is a pleasant and welcoming Italian Restaurant providing very good service and a decent selection of wines but which, in our experience, doesn't quite live up to its early promise. Our starters of Black Mussels and Grilled Eggplant were delicious as were the complimentary salads and freshly baked bread. Unfortunately the main courses couldn't maintain the standard. The Lasagna was heavy on the pasta but short on meat, sauce and seasoning while the Pollo Marsala also left a lot to be desired. A pity really as Gina's clearly has potential and offers a lot in terms of service, location and value.

Food quality was superb and the location was easy to access and close to parking. Well worth your time if you need Italian

Very good italian restaurant. Chicken pesto pasta was really good and my dining partner was pleased with the lasagna! Great service and very good value for money! I would go back!

Not a very big place, and tucked away in the quaint Village of Arroyo Grande, but if you like Italian, you will love Gina's. Fresh homemade pasta, great wines, delicious sauces and the bread... ohhhhh, the bread. Have tried at least four of their daily ravioli specials and they have all been wonderful. The staff is super warm and friendly without being overbearing, but they will make great suggestions if you ask.

I've been a fan of Gina's for many years and just had lunch there about a week ago. It was excellent as always. It's a cozy little restaurant that has never disappointed me.
