Great, noisy atmosphere, not for lovers of intimate dining! Service was quick, drinks orders were taken and delivered efficiently. We were a large crowd with varied orders and the place was very busy. Most of our order was correct but mistakes did occur. However, the pizzas were excellent, lots of toppings, good value for money!

Very popular restaurant judging by the number of patrons on an ordinary Thursday evening. Lovely to sit outside. A very large outside area that also caters for smokers. Service was friendly though not always the quickest, as this one is only a runner and that one only cleans and only the waitress designated for the table takes the orders. Two... More

This extremely popular Italian family restaurant is expertly run by owner Dom Mazza and his team. Many of the staff have been working there for a long time and this local inn often feels like visiting someone at their house. Although is is mainly casual and very fairly priced one can also get a more formal experience from sitting inside... More

We ate chicken salad and a pizza. Sorry, as mentioned above: low quality! Chicken was cold, tomatos coarsely chopped, completely little taste. Pizza substandard. But the waitress Maryann was very helpfull and friendly!

One of our local goto places. The food is consistently good at a reasonable price. The atmosphere is friendly and there is always a nice buzz. Waiters are friendly and attentive. I recommend the chicken mayo calzone.

I just love this little Italian restaurant. The mood is always festive and it sort of makes sense, because it is like Christmas on a plate. A group of friends and I enjoyed delicious pizzas at Gino's recently and, as always, it did not disappoint.

We ordered takeaways on a Saturday evening...were warned that they were very busy but they will do best they can It eventually took longer than anticipated. The way it was handled and informing phone calls by Gino's staff is highly commendable !! Delivered although late with no charge because of unfortunate delay. The quality of pizzas already made up for... More
