About

Gina�s Italian Kitchen & Pizzeria offers authentic cuisine with innovative twists. Its retro style includes dark wood furniture and decor accents, as well as exposed brick walls and wine bottles on display. The open kitchen allows guests to watch and smell their food being made.

Italian classics at Gina�s include options like lasagna, chicken scampi and eggplant parmigiana. Guests are also welcome to start with a refreshing Italian wedge salad or a platter of calamari to share with the table. Gina�s pizza pies are a big hit with guests and can include your choice of sauce and toppings. Other choices, like the Godfather - topped with mozzarella, pepperoni, Italian sausage, Canadian bacon, bell peppers, mushrooms and black olives - and the Brooklyn - topped with garlic sauce, mozzarella, ricotta and oregano - are house favorites. Gina�s Italian Kitchen offers an Executive Express Lunch menu that offers lighter portions at a reasonable price.

Open Table reservation for mother's day lunch worked like a charm - walked right past the line to our table. Food was excellent and quite reasonably priced for the quality and amount of food we got (and took home!)

Went for our annual NYE Italian meal. No complaints on our food, just on the service. We had to ask our waitress, and remind her for drink refills. My father was about to get up and get the refill himself since she was no where around. I also asked her to bring my soup and salad out as my entree, and the soup was brought out with the pre-entree salads. For dessert, we were brought menus, but were not told about all the desserts offered like we saw other tables. Thankfully, we saw the cannolis offered to other table and asked for them. All other tables were offered NYE hats, glasses, etc. and we were not. Not sure if she was just new, but not the service we expected.

Nice greeting as we came in and good table choice bar area. Larger part of room is a bit noisier and open.

Very good shrimp appetizer.

My stuffed shells when served was more of a pile then individual shells nicely presented. Tomato sauce was very powerful for my taste.

Enjoyed the attentiveness of our waitress.

My wife and I drive 30 minutes to dine at Gina's quite often. Excellent food, very good Italian! Better than most Italian restaurants I have ever been in. The owner is quite personable and very polite; also attentive to any needs or desires you may have. He will make menu changes to accommodate his clients.
I highly recommend this venue for excellent food and personal service at prices that are too low.

The food was all very good. The atmosphere was good for family dining. It was really lit up inside. Again, fine if you are taking the kids out to eat, or a large family gathering with mixed ages. Service was good. We will definitely return, just not for an intimate romantic dinner. But when a big family group with the kids and grandparents all goes out together, it will be perfect!

Good wine selection and reasonable prices.

We first had Gina's when someone brought a pan of lasagna to my sister-in-law's house. We decided to go in for dinner and it has become a regular place for us. The stuffed shells are incredible!

Went there for wedding anniversary dinner. We weren't very dressed up but were the most dressed up people there. Definitely a more casual place than we thought. Service and food were good. Had a filet mignon that was not evenly cooked medium but wasn't horrible by any means. Also filet had a lot more fat than that cut of meat usually has. On the other hand, it was a very generous piece of meat, larger than most restaurants. Tasted great--no real complaints. Sea bass with cilantro sauce was very good as well. Good casual place, but not a romantic atmosphere if that is what you are looking for.

We took some family members to Gina's Italian Kitchen - Friendswood to celebrate birthdays. A friend from work had recommended it. We had a very enjoyable dinner. The dipping sauce and bread were very unique and delicious. The server was very attentive. The restaurant was not loud at all. That was so nice to be able to enjoy conversation at our table without having to yell at one another. The food was delicious and abundant. My husband even commented that the next evening when he was enjoying his left overs that he thought they were still delicious! With the open kitchen I was able to compliment the chefs before we left. I very much look forward to my next dinner there.
