Italian
Gino Minardi was born and raised in the coastal town of Gela, Italy, which is located in the province of Caltanissetta. He came to America in 1957 and settled in Brooklyn, New York. Spending much of his time working in a local bakery, Gino began spending the rest of his time dating the love of his life, Angela. They married in 1959 and eventually moved to New Jersey where he opened his first Italian-American bakery/pizzaria. After moving to Florida and opening a pizza shop, his friend Tony from Sicily talked Gino and his brother Luciano into coming to Texas for a partnership in Galveston. With their children migrating to the Austin area, Gino and Angela ultimately made the move themselves. They chose Round Rock as the best fit for them and Gino's Italian Cuisine. Opening its doors at its current location in 1993, Gino's has been proudly serving the Central Texas area for over 20 years.

Horrible experience for table of 4. Good neighborhood restaurant, but cannot handle special occasions like Valentines Day. Did not have coolers for our wine bottles. Appetizers were 30 min late. Wait staff did not check on us. Entrées were 1 hour late. We profusely apologized to our guests, because we bragged about how good our neighborhood restaurant was. Westside Preserve will not be back.

Made reservations and got seated immediately-had a great glass of wine and enough food for take home! Great wait staff!

The service was horrible. We waited over 20 minutes to get one of the drinks. The server did not come by our table to check on us. Our order was wrong, we opted not to wait another 25 mins to remake the pizza order. We asked for the pizza to be comp, the manager was the worse from the whole ordeal. She basically argued with me on why she shouldn’t comp the meal because it was only half wrong. She was a piece of work. We like to support local businesses but going forward we will pass on Gino’s.

My husband and I were visiting Cedar Park, Texas and happened upon Gino’s Italian Cuisine. Our experience was wonderful. Our food was delicious and hot and our server was more than attentive. We definitely will be visiting again.

The food was delicious and great value. The waitress was attentive and got the order correct. The bar seemed to shut down early and not fully stocked, which seemed to be the only shortcoming. I would eat there again.

Fabulous meals. Portions are quite large too, so we got a total of three dinners and two lunches. :)

So happy to have found Gino’s in Cedar Park! Loved eating there when I worked in Round Rock! Best Italian food is now closer to home.

After reading the reviews I thought we would try Gino’s. The restaurant is old looking and very dark. Bulbs missing in most of the light fixtures. We came with our daughter and grandchildren. All they wanted was a pepperoni pizza and I ordered a chicken piccata. The order took over an hour to come to the table! The pizza was like a home cooked frozen pizza. My chicken was awful, it was a bare chicken breast( previously frozen ) floating in watery butter and capers. I took one bite and sent it back. The waitresses took it off the bill. She was very sweet and apologetic. We will not return.

Gino’s has gone down hill. Salads wilted, food poor quality, restaurant dirty. Our server was very good though, so I’ve given it 2 stars for that. We won’t be back.

I believe this is the same Chef from Houston in the 1970s, the carbonara was as then, excellent. It is hard to top this effort.

Took wife to Gino's for Valentines after I'd waited much too late to get a reservation at the time we wanted at the usual places we go. I saw Gino's was available, and they had a very good rating. Reservation made!

We were very pleasantly surprised to find them handing out roses to all the women that came. Nice touch! Staff was wonderful. The restaurant noise wasn't bad despite being full, which is a huge plus in my opinion.

Kat had the flounder, I had the lasagnia - both were very good.

We'll be back!!

I had eggplant parmigiana and my wife had chicken piccata . Our server (Courtney) was very helpful. I was able to substitute diavolo sauce for the normal marinara. It was great! Gino’s is definitely a family friendly place. I could wish for a more romantic ambiance, but we were glad to find Gino’s!

Food was overpriced for the quality. It seems like they douse their food with creams or sauces.
