My husband I visit Gino's on a regular basis. Everything about Gino's is superb. The food, the drinks, the staff. I would recommend Gino's of lunch or dinner.

We actually ordered for take out for my son's 3rd Birthday. We ordered a platter of Blackened Chicken Lasagna. There were no leftovers. All the kids had seconds and thirds. Food was amazing.

Server was new, so she was inconsistent and did not know the menu. Martini was just a glass of gin. Food was good, but not as good as normal. Brandy was served in a shot glass, not a snifter. Used to be my favorite place,...More
