The title says it all, it’s not the flashiest but the service was great, we were well looked after and the food options and portion sizes were fine. They are not trying to be clever just the basic Italian fare done well.

Food is excellent pity the service is pathetic. Ordered the Mediterranean salad and the 2 main ingredients were missing. Kids ice cream which is included in the meal was never brought. When I enquired the waitress made an excuse that she was too busy. Won’t...More

Fabulous dining and a great atmosphere, Gina’s Italian Kitchen has it all. The food was truly delicious and the portions were huge. There is a great selection of wines and beers as well. I highly recommend chiantari terre siciane Nero d’Avila. A must do restaurant.

Went here for lunch with a colleague, service was excellent and the food was very tasty. Portion sizes were very large and the price was very reasonable. Will definitely be heading back when next in Auckland.

Been to Ginas many times sadly something has changed. Why bother booking if they have to scramble about and shove us almost in the kitchen. No doubt we were where the action was. The positive factors were the waiting staff were attentive with good humour....More
