I normally don’t order appetizer before my meals because it takes away my enjoyment from the main dish. Well, here at Gina’s I should; the portions are very small, and there’s no bread and butter before meals. I order veal piccata; it was very delicious, however the meat was pounded paper thin accompanied by a very small portion of green beans and about 4 wedges of small roasted red potatoes. I split the bill with my friend and left $40 dollars with taxes and tip (no beverages). My teen daughter called right on my way home asking me to meet her at a hamburger place and eat with her, so I was still hungry and accepted the invite and enjoyed a nice juicy hamburger afterworlds.

We had an early dinner and there were kids there who were screaming, and a teen birthday party that was quite noisy. We moved tables with no problem, as the restaurant was not full at 6pm. Their food was better than I remembered...Lemon Sole with spinach and julienne carrots was quite good at $29.00.
They really tried to accommodate us, and help us through the noise issues by moving us. We would go back but maybe a bit later to avoid all the noisy kids and family hour dining.

This is a comfortable neighborhood restaurant. Pizza is the best selection -- freshly baked in a brick oven -- thin crust, delicious. Disappointed with pasta dish listed on the menu as having shrimp, shitake mushrooms etc -- NOT satisfactory, shrimp were fine, pasta ok, but the substitution of ordinary canned mushrooms ruined the dish -- better to admit that the ingredients are not available then to offer lesser quality recipe.

Visited Gina during easter Sunday for lunch. We were the only party in the restaurant at the time which was nice bc it was quiet and we were served quickly. The food was delicious.

The atmosphere was nice. Service was good. Food selections were varied and looked good as described on menu but the food tasted just “eh”, & portions were small for the price. Side of broccoli was the best item our party ordered, which include ravioli, salads, and pastas. I would not go here again.

The food was delicious, the room cozy and comfortable, but especially welcome, warm, and wonderful was our server. I'm sorry I didn't ask her name. (It was the night of Friday, 2/8, though, if that gives you a clue.)

Gina wasn’t open on New Years. They should probably do a better job of managing their Open Table “book” of reservationns. We were left scrambling to find a local place not closed for a party or a special all you can drink deal.

The staff is lovely but honestly I keep coming back hoping food will be better. Maybe I’m ordering wrong items.I will try a pizza
We ordered poached salmon on top of salad, it was fishy and dry. The minestrone soup was watery.

Enjoyed Gina’s for a night out with friends. Good menu and the prices are reasonable. We ordered drinks, pasta bolognese, pizza, kale salad, coffee. Would come back.
