Vadim and I try to take a “date night” a couple times a month. We really look forward to it. Thanks Slavik and Alla for babysitting last night!!

Gino’s Italian Restaurant Review:

Gino’s wasn’t exactly what I expected. It’s not a great “date” place because it’s very loud. The building probably didn’t have very good acoustics. The volume was more of what you’d expect in a sports pub.

The bread and dipping sauce were very tasty and fresh (bread was a little scorched on the bottom – but probably is supposed to be that way?). They give you such a small chunk of bread though; and charge for more.

Vadim ordered the “Fritti” which had pasta, mushrooms and sausage for $14. He wasn’t too crazy about it, but I thought it was pretty good. My initial feeling about the sauce was – barbeque pizza sauce – the second and third bites were better than the first. Vadim’s pasta came with a salad.

I ordered the “Ginos” with ravioli and chicken because the waiter said the prime roast pieces that are supposed to be in it were to dry. I should have gotten the prime roast. The sauce was good.  Nothing spectacular. $14

We always order water so our total came to $28 something plus tip. Chicken dishes on the menu were surprisingly pricey; starting around $17 and up. You might like the food better if you order the $20 plates…?? maybe?? Well, if that is the case, I like my Olive Garden with the best all you can eat Salad…mmm 🙂

The only appeal to this place was the fact that it isn’t a “chain” restaurant. I really don’t care too much about that. I’m more interested in fabulous food. I felt like I could make something comparable at home pretty easily.

If you decide to go, let me know what you thought of it. I’m giving it a 3 out of 5 stars.

    Natasha I found your website through a friend a couple months ago and I could not be more grateful! I’ve been married for 1 year and 8 months now and because of your website and your amazing detailed recipes I actually enjoy cooking now! You make any recipe seem so easy which is exactly what I needed 🙂 When I just got married I had no idea how to cook and when I tried, everything turned out so badly. which led to eating out a lot… which can get very expensive! I’m so thankful for you website and teaching me how to make good food, which is a lot easier than I ever thought!
    Blessings to you and your family. 🙂 Reply

      Inna, you are so funny. I am glad you like it. Don’t worry, I didn’t know how to cook at all when I got married. Reply
