Gino's Restaurant Review

: Gino's family-style service option, expansive tables and relaxed, lively atmosphere make it an ideal gathering place for larger groups. The kitchen uses local meats, seafood and produce whenever possible. Best bets are simple dishes benefitting from quality ingredients and robust flavors. Examples are the Caesar salad, which will leave you breathing garlic for days, and seafood such as steamed clams, mussels or the classic cioppino. 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, get out a spoon for tiramisu, cheesecake or butterscotch-chocolate pudding. At lunch, the menu is more limited but the value just as good. Choose from among three Blue Plate Specials, like wild mushroom lasagna, a grilled eggplant sandwich or lamb stew. Salads, salmon and steak are also available. Enhance your meal with a selection from the more than 500 Italian wines or a cocktail from the full bar.
