I eat out a lot, 3-5 times a week, the food here is constantly good-great. It does get loud in there especally fri sat sun, 2 person tables can be small. This is hands down one of the best restaurants, the service is pretty good not great.

Without a doubt, this restaurant is very busy, even on a weekday mid-afternoon. And it's also very loud. Tables are a bit cramped. Portions are generous, prices are in line with the quality of the cuisine and the menu has just enough variety to be interesting. However, the wait staff performs as though they are banging out breakfast specials in a crowded greasy spoon diner. They're very fast and hardworking for sure but unfortunately very loud, brusque, occasionally awkward and sometimes rude when serving or clearing dishes. They routinely reach directly across and in front of patrons when clearing dishes away and they drop plates the last inch or so onto the table when serving. If you're all dressed up and looking to have a nice, relatively quiet Italian dinner with attentive service then you probably won't enjoy going here. But then again, perhaps its shortcomings are part of its actual appeal.

If you are like me, you love Italian food. I love Italian food the most and especially pizza. You get a good fresh italian meal and the portions are plentiful. The pizza is great and I definitely would come here again and again.. Parking is the problem in this area

I love this place. It's very comfortable and the food and service are great. Plus, if you go with children the kids can get a slice of pizza and the adults can get a great meal pluce a bottle of wine or mixed drink from the full bar. I highly recommend this restaurant.

My family has been going forever, back when it was just a small pizzeria. The staff is wonderful, the kitchen is exceptionally clean and the food is fantastic. My parents are there every Friday night!

My boyfriend introduced Gino's to me when we first started dating. We now go at least once a month as a treat! The food is delicious and the service is outstanding! It's truly a great package with its comfortable ambience and reasonably priced dishes. You really get a great deal when you order their house red wine (they fill it to the brim) No frills with this place, just authentic Italian goodness
Try a simple pasta dish with a side of meatballs,so yummy!
They also serve half portions for those who are trying to watch their carb intake. I enjoy this as well!
ENJOY!!!

Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. Gino's has been a favorite of my family for years. My mom ate there at least 4 times a week while pregnant to me. Looking forward to planning a party there!!

I highly reccommend Gino's Resturant. They have very great food. The pasta is phonominal and the pizza is delicious and made properly. This is the way Italian food should be. Great for families.

This used to be one of the best places to go in Bay Ridge, Bklyn. Its now dated, and the food has gone way down. I really miss the old Gino's...the pizza used to be the best as well as their other entrees. Now the place is very inconsistent and its obvious the're just concerned about volume and getting you in and out...turning tables as quickly as possible. I dont foresee them staying around much longer if this continues. The food isnt what it used to be. There really isnt a decent restaurant in Bay Ridge anymore. What a shame. Ginos was the only one ...and now thats off my list too !

I've been going to Gino's for over 15 years, since they were a tiny little pizzeria with a few red booths lining the wall. They've since increased in size by at least 5 times, but the food continues to wonderful. You may have to stand around for a while, but it's worth the wait for great food and service at a reasonable price.

Gino's has turned into an expensive restaurant with extremely long wait times. Food is average. The pizza is usually burnt or undercooked. The serving sizes- again average. If you want to spend alot of money on bland food - then Gino's is your place to go.

I'm giving Gino's a satisfactory because the food is pretty good. My family and I have been eating at Gino's for years--since it was just a small pizzeria, before becoming the restaurant. We were recently let down in a big way. We had made reservations a month in advance to have dinner for 15 people at Gino's after our daughter's baptism. When I called to make the reservation, I asked for something in the 4PM time range. I was told that they'd put me down for 6:30. I told them that the baptism was at 2PM, and that we needed something earlier. I was told, "Just come in when you're done, and we'll get you in." Well, we had all of our guests drive to the restaurant and find parking (which is NOT an easy thing to do in this neighborhood) at 3:30, only to be told that they could not seat us because they were too crowded. My husband told them what we were told when we made the reservations, and they basically said, "Sorry, we can't do it. We didn't expect it to be so crowded." Gee, thanks a lot. Well, we were quite angry at first, and felt embarrassed, but in the long run, Gino's did us a favor. We have a new favorite Italian restaurant in the area, and will not be going to Gino's anymore. If you're looking for pizza, this is a good restaurant, but don't count on them if you're planning a gathering.

You cannot go wrong at Gino's - EVERYTHING IS GREAT. The House salad is big enough to split, The Fried Calamari is some of the best I ever ate, the bowties & broccoli, broccoli rabe, square slices, broiled filet of sole, clam sauce...DELICIOUS! Prices are reasonable, cannot beat the fresh quality of all their food. The service is great - friendly, fast and perfect. Go early on weekends, there is usually a line out the door; call ahead for reservations and expect to leave STUFFED.

Last of a dying breed. Those who know good food, know Ginos is one of the last great down home italian restaurants around here, where you dont have to take out a 2nd mortgage to enjoy yoruself with a large group of people. I love their menu, consistently good, simple, and always reliable and AFFORDABLE. Glad to see they renovated and expanded... she deserves it.

Getting a table at Gino's is can be pretty brutal -- the line is often out the door. See if you can get a seat at the bar and have a drink! Once you are seated it is well worth it. The food seems to be pretty simple but very very tasty -- definitely a good bang for the buck. The servers treat you well even though they are insanely busy.

ITS ALWAYS A PLEASURE COMING BACK TO A JOINT THAT YOU REMEMBER AS A YEARS BACK AND IT DOESN'T SPOIL THE MEMORIES! THE DECOR HAS BEEN UPDATED TO A FULL BLOWN RESTAURANT BUT THE QUALITY AND THE QUANTITY HASN'T CHANGED. THE FOOD HAS ACTUALLY GOTTEN BETTER, MORE CHOICES BUT THE OLD STANDBYS ARE STILL GREAT. THE BAKED CLAMS OR VEAL CULTLETS ARE STILL THERE BUT THERE'S SO MUCH MORE. I STILL LOVE IT!

This used to be my favorite restaurant but now that prices went up, the food quality has gone down. In the past few years they spiced up their look to seem more like a restaurant than a pizzeria. They did a great job on the decor but it seems that the food has gotten a bit less in the quality department, as well as in the portion size!

I liked it better when it was smaller and friendlier...

ATE THERE FRIDAY. WAITED A HALF HOUR, BUT SO WORTH IT. GREAT FOOD, PRICES, SERVICE AND AMBIANCE. VERY TRENDY. AS AN ITALIAN, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. ASK FOR EDDIE, A GREAT WAITER. TRY THE GRILLED CHICKEN OR ROLLITINI. FRANK FROM BROOKLYN.

Gino's is both a great old-school Italian-American joint (STILL family owned and operated), but is best for its Pizza, which can be delivered. The crust is the perfect medium between chewy and crispy, the sauce is slightly, but not overbearingly, sweet and the mozzarella is of the highest quality. My fave place for Pizza in Brooklyn.
