Been coming to Gina's for years, its the real deal in Auckland, you can't get the atmosphere and food anywhere else. If you love Italian food take the Familia.

Popped up to Auckland for a few days to see family. Sister recommended Ginas so we booked a table for 6. It was a cold night so we thought warm hearty Italian would be the way to go. Arrived and started to walk into the main restaurant but were told we would be sitting at the far end of the... More

We went there partly because of a GrabOne coupon (half price). But we'd read some of the foodie comments which were quite encouraging. However, the food wasn't that good at all. A bit tired looking and tasting. It seemed that the set menu for the GrabOne deal had been pre-cooked! We were enjoying talking among ourselves, but the reasonable atmosphere... More

Great atmosphere, serving and kitchen staff are very much part of the life of this establishment. Good food at reasonable prices and good portions. Parking a bit difficult but manageable.

Terrible ambience, so cramped and we got a table to the entrance of the recycled bins. Not only that the people who serve you do not know the menu written on "Grab One" is so different from the set menu they give us to choose from. We loved the starters but our mains just tasted like flavoured condensed milk as... More

Although an enjoyable atmosphere it was overpriced and the food was very ordinary. At the end of the night - a main each, BYO wine and a shared desert ....there goes $85 for 2 people. I had to go to the bar a get the water bottle refilled, they served the table next to ours who arrived after us, first.... More

Ginas has a lovely friendly staff who are laid back and very entertaining! The pizza was lovely but the pasta was disappointing- bland with almost no sauce or flavour and very little mushroom or chicken. The espresso martini was amazing but the other cocktails left a lot to be desired. As a suggestion- presenting all the cocktails in cocktail glasses... More

Went to Ginas to celebrate a birthday and was very impressed with the choice off the menu. True italian fare . We had lasagnes, ribs and a clam dish in our party and all were tasty. The atmosphere is friendly. The room is just a bit dark inside so it makes menu reading a bit difficult. Thank heavens for the... More

I have been to Ginas a while back so thought for a anniversary dinner we would go give it ago. I booked online and requested a quite table if possible as it was a anniversary dinner so was really disappointed that we got seated in the middle aisle of everyone and in the smallest area or the restaurant. The online... More
