Traditional Italian Cuisine
First opened in 1953 under the name Italian Garden, Gino’s features a selection of traditional menu items that one would expect in an Italian restaurant, with a few unique twists. Some of the bestsellers include the lasagna and seafood pescatore (seashell pasta in a creamy tomato sauce sautéed with shrimp, crab, scallops and fresh mussels). A large selection of pastas should suit many different tastes and several include some of Gino’s homemade Italian sausage.
Thick stuffed Italian sandwiches have a variety of meat and cheese fillings. You can even get pizza with two toppings of your choice. A meal won’t set you back very far wallet-wise –entrées range from moderately priced pasta dishes to slightly higher-end milk-fed veal dishes, like veal parmesan. If you still have room, try the mouth-watering homemade tiramisu for dessert.
Casual, Yet Romantic
Although the restaurant has typically catered to family dining, there is also an aura of romance at Gino’s. The linen and candles on the tables is inviting to couples desiring to spend a romantic evening together. You can even enjoy a glass of wine – the wine list has about 12 selections on it.
