“Very tasty food”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We were recommended here as we wanted some real Italian food, so we decided to do so. The hostess was not the nicest and we had to wait pretty long but after tasting the food all of the frustrations went away. The menu was really good with plenty of choices. I think whatever your choice is you can’t make a wrong decision.

“best LA Italian food,BUT”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

The restaurant is very popular due to their wonderful food.This creates a big problem.You are elbow to elbow with your fellow diners.You can hear their conversations and they can hear yours.You are rushed through dinner-something that would never happen in Italy.Although the food tastes like a good restaurant in Italy everthing else is LA! More trouble than it is worth.

“A Unostentatious Gem”
Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

This small restaurant just off the street, with valet parking, was an unexpected gem. We were told about it by our valet at our hotel and were pleasantly surprised by the great "real" Italian food presented. The meal was simply scrumptious. We loved the burratta dish as a starter. Very fresh and tasty. They also had zucchini flowers which were good as well. Mmmm the pasta dishes were excellent. The coffee to finish was perfect.

“Best Italian in the city”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Gino is a genius. Small restaurant, hard to snag a table, try it for lunch if you cannot get in for dinner.

“Best Italian restaurant anywhere.”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

You sure need reservations to get into this restaurant on weekends, but it's worth a wait. The food is incredible. The service is very good, but the ambience is just ok. The prices on the regular menu are a great value, too. Some specials are a bit pricey - but overall you can do well for $40 per person for a complete dinner! If you really have to have a fancy restaurant with formal atmosphere this place clearly is not for you. But if you want a casual dining experince with the best food you've ever have - give it a shot!
