A great meal at a great price. I had the surf and turf and it was incredible....the steak was perfect and it came with a garlic sauce that complemented the prawns that were hot ...(often in some restaurants the plating leaves them warm, here the plating was excellent). My wife had the vegetarian pizza which she loved. We started with... More

I only went in for a take away and i'll definitely be back properly soon. The atmosphere was lovely and it was busy which is a good sign. I ordered a deep fried pizza and made sweet love to it, it was delicious. I'm looking forward to trying the rest of the menu

Absolutely love this little gem in Symonds Street. Beautiful and tasty food makes it hard for choice. Friendly staff. Can be quite noisy at times so not the place to go for a romantic dinner but have always had an excellent time.

I love visiting Ginas because I always feel so welcomed. The staff are extremely friendly, and i never have to wait long for my meals to arrive. So far i love everything i have tried, but as for favourites, i recommend the Alleluia pizza, and Ravioli con pollo for a main. The ingredients are so fresh, yummy!!!! Starters are harder... More

Cool table settings. Felt like Italy. Red and white table cloths. Great Food! Great Service! Thank you! You'll never go wrong with Gina's Italian Restaurant. Best Italian restaurant in Auckland. I like how the people who work there are Italian. This is special, especially hearing their wonderful loud accents. The atmosphere is pleasant. Good spacious room.

This little piece of Italy in the heart of the city was incredible. The food was spectacular, the staff were attentive (in a feel like part of the family way), the evening was great. When we arrived they had the table set up inside, we asked if we could move to one of the outside tables, which was no mission... More

Brought the whole family for our first night in Auckland. The pizzas were very tasty, and we especially enjoyed by the younger ones. We also had a house salad, which was so crisp and delicious! The one hiccup we had was with this mushroom chicken pasta- super thick and just not appetizing. Overall, friendly staff and good atmosphere. Would definitely... More

A friend of mine used to rave about Ginas so 4 of us tried it on a Saturday night. I firstly need to declare that the recommendation was a few years before and things have clearly changed. Its like a theme restaurant with many large groups and many having a girls night out or Hens party's who are entertained by... More
