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.
