“Best pizza!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Gino's is simply the best. It's the best pizza you'll have in the United States and has a great feel to the place, though I wish they never installed the TVs in the pizzeria. It has three rooms, the pizzeria, the dining room and a party room, so it can suit any need. I love this place more than words can say.

“Still Perfect After All These Years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Wow! I grew up here, and Gino's was the pizzaria of my childhood...no other pizza has ever been as good. I came back for a day and decided to see if my childhood memories were right. Well, I wound up here fo Pasta Night and it was incredible! Started with a crisp Cesaer salad and then had the best eggplant siciliana I ever ate. The owner actually remembered me! I finished up with som Italian cheesecake. All for $10.95!! What can I say? Run don't walk to eat here. By the way, the service is fabulous too.

“Decent Neighborhood Pizza Joint”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

I have been going to Gino's for many years, and as far as I know it has been a family operation all that time. The pizza is consistently good, and there is a full service restaurant next door. The place is frequented by a number of Italian speaking guests, which adds a cosmopolitan air, however, it sometimes make you feel like an outsider, particularly since the staff is not especially friendly or welcoming, even to regulars. Go there for a slice, but don't expect anything particularly special. You'll probably have to wipe down your table before sitting down for lunch. You might try Frantoni's on Hilliside for comparison.

“a neighborhood eatery worth visiting”

Service and food are consistently good in this neighborhood restaurant. Great for a quick snack or a leisurely meal. We go often and have never been disappointed.
