Gino's Restaurant Review: This homey restaurant serves Italian-American food just like Nonna used to make for Sunday dinner. Large tables and a lively atmosphere make it an ideal gathering place for groups. The kitchen uses local grass-fed meat, seafood and produce whenever possible. Best bets are simple dishes that benefit from quality ingredients and robust flavoring. The family-style Caesar salad will leave you breathing garlic for days. Seafood such as steamed clams, mussels or the classic cioppino are always good choices, and be sure and sop up the sauce with plenty of Italian bread. Other options include homemade ravioli and Gino's signature dish: Grandma Jean's pasta, a peasant-like stew of beef, pork ribs and tomatoes ladled generously over a mound of penne. Vegetarians will enjoy a daily special. For dessert, consider tiramisu, cheesecake or butterscotch chocolate pudding. Pair your meal with a selection from among 500 Italian wines.
