Stopped last night, on a wild hair, and we really liked it! My husband is a lasagna snob, and he placed it in his top three.... The Laurence bread is a kiss from an angel! Light, tender, delicious seasonings and crispy outside. The minestrone is chock-full of bright, fresh veggies... Some of the best I've ever had. Service was very... More

My favorite restaurant in Baton Rouge. They have great Italian food and their grilled seafood is terrific. Love to sit in the bar area to eat, especially on Thursday nights when there's live music. If you're really lucky, Luther Kent is performing that night and you get an extra treat!

This was my first time dining at Gino's, had been recommended by some friends. The service was top notch and the food was outstanding. The atmosphere was very relaxing and enjoyable. Would recommend to anyone for any occasion or no occasion just a great night overall.

This place is a Baton Rouge institution and has been for years. Dependably italian fare with a nice bar featuring live music. Get there early because it gets crowded. Also, try the Lawrence bread!

Gino's is the type of place that you can enjoy for a special occasion, but is equally as comfortable for a casual lunch with friends. It is my favorite Italian restaurant. They have affordable lunch specials Monday through Friday. Not to be missed is the Laurence bread. The restaurant is usually crowded, but the noise level is low. Service is... More

Could not say more about Gino's it was great. Dinner was great, cocktails were great. We sat at the bar, so the bartender took care of us. He did a fine job. I will be back!!!

We dine at Gino's often, and are never disappointed. It vis always advisable to make a reservation because they do brisk business almost every night. For an appetizer, their Caprese salad is wonderful, and the Laurence bread is delicious. My wife's favorite main course is the Veal Sorrentina while I usually order the Veal Piccata or Veal Marsala. For dessert,... More

This place is great! Wonderful bar atmosphere, Luther Kent regularly plays there, foot is nonpareil. The Robert Bread is spectacular, and one is usually tempted to keep ordering additional servings ... be careful as it's not cheap! Nonetheless, a great place to dine. Portions are generous, and this is without question the best Italian restaurant in Baton Rouge, on an... More
