This was my first time dining at Gino's, had been recommended by some friends. The service was top notch and the food was outstanding. The atmosphere was very relaxing and enjoyable. Would recommend to anyone for any occasion or no occasion just a great night overall.

This place is a Baton Rouge institution and has been for years. Dependably italian fare with a nice bar featuring live music. Get there early because it gets crowded. Also, try the Lawrence bread!

Gino's is the type of place that you can enjoy for a special occasion, but is equally as comfortable for a casual lunch with friends. It is my favorite Italian restaurant. They have affordable lunch specials Monday through Friday. Not to be missed is the Laurence bread. The restaurant is usually crowded, but the noise level is low. Service is... More

Could not say more about Gino's it was great. Dinner was great, cocktails were great. We sat at the bar, so the bartender took care of us. He did a fine job. I will be back!!!

We dine at Gino's often, and are never disappointed. It vis always advisable to make a reservation because they do brisk business almost every night. For an appetizer, their Caprese salad is wonderful, and the Laurence bread is delicious. My wife's favorite main course is the Veal Sorrentina while I usually order the Veal Piccata or Veal Marsala. For dessert,... More

This place is great! Wonderful bar atmosphere, Luther Kent regularly plays there, foot is nonpareil. The Robert Bread is spectacular, and one is usually tempted to keep ordering additional servings ... be careful as it's not cheap! Nonetheless, a great place to dine. Portions are generous, and this is without question the best Italian restaurant in Baton Rouge, on an... More

Best Italian restaurant in Baton Rouge. Went there for our dinner club of 9 people. Arancini isn't absolutely wonderful. Veal parmigiana was my choice. Spot on. Lawrence bread to die for. Just a great place to go.

My friend who lives in Baton Rouge for over 50 years, always recommends Gino's. Have had several lunches and dinners here. Always great. Never disappointed. You might even see a local or nationally known celebrity at a nearby table.

We visited this restaurant in August, 2016. Was not impressed by the variety of Italian offerings. Appetizer (fried calamari) was well cooked, but the dipping sauce was not a good marinara sauce. Actually, the tomato sauce was really sweet, nothing like one would expecr in an authentic Italian restaurant. The veal was not milk fed. My wife asked for pasta... More
