Came in for dinner, and while the dinner started out good, the steak that was ordered medium rare was probably closer to medium well, no chance of pink anywhere. After the food gets served, it's obvious that all the waitresses and managers run and hide,...More

We went to Gino's after a funeral because we wanted some good steaks and wine and this seemed our best choice. We grew up with this restaurant. Well they were hosting a banquet so it took us 1 hour and 20 min to get food....More
