Gino's has Italian family dining at its best. High quality food with excellent service and friendly atmosphere. Full service bar and quality wines are a bonus. This is the place to come for an "Old world" Italian meal and feels like you are at home....More

I have eaten at Gino's many times and have ordered their takeout food on many occasions for parties and/or just to have at home. Their food is great! Atmosphere in the restaurant is marvelous, with friendly service and very good wine selections.

Yes, they serve lunch and dinner. They are a busy restaurant, so you might want to get reservations, but we ate there for early lunches without reservations.
