We tried to get there before 5pm "opening"but with 2 babies and seven adults we were 5 minutes late. No tables. But they nicely combined three tables that accommodated us outside. Great crusty bread. Good drinks. The scallop/bacon appetizer was outstanding if small. We had the veal parma and chicken parma and fettucine alfredo and sea bass, all plentiful and... More

I heard about Gina's by the Sea from a colleague and was excited to try it. You really do have to get there by 5pm (which is when the restaurant opens) to get a table. My family arrived at 4:40 and were seated promptly. The restaurant is quaint, and provides a cozy atmosphere -you feel like you are dining with... More

We have been coming to Gina's since it opened! Summer doesn't officially start until we've had a nice dinner here!On this visit I had the shrimp scampi and my wife had the striped bass special. Both dishes were amazing.....but we've come to expect that! The scampi had about 8 large shrimp cooked perfectly as was the pasta. The bass was... More

This place was awful! The staff was friendly expect for our waitress she kept rubbing her face and scratch her ears and head! I can't make this up it was flat out disgusting! The place is filthy inside and the food I wouldn't even give it one star. The apps (mussels,antipasto,garlic bread with cheese) were all decent but the main... More

Ate at Gina's for the first time this season, last Friday, and it was excellent as always. We arrived at about 5:00, got one of the last parking spaces available and were seated right away in the front dining room. My wife had the striped bass special and I had one of their signature dishes, chicken dijon. Our server was... More

During the high season, Gina's is very crowded and for good reason. The price, service menu quality is routinely quite good. This night it was outstanding for a party of four. Three had the swordfish special and I had the shrimp scampi on a bed of linguini. All the dishes were proclaimed excellent. Valet parking, good bar/bar scene ....

You know it's summer when you visit Gina's. This is your classic red sauce Italian restaurant. Bar area takes you back to the 1970s with dark wood paneling, great drinks, friendly bartenders, at very fair prices. The food is consistently good. I recommend staying with the classic Italian dishes on the menu as they know how to do it right.... More

Some of best Italian food on the Cape but the wait is lengthy in season. Cozy, warm atmosphere. Great employees. Veal or eggplant Parmesan outstanding. Shrimp scampi plentiful and delicious. Meals come with salad and side of spaghetti or veggie. Mussels in tomato sauce enough for three. Highly recommend for off season visit.

Restaurant is open, Thurs thru Sun, at least in the off season...when we visited. It was very crowded, but we were seated immediately and greeted by our server soon after. The menu is Italian, and all in our party were quite pleased with our meals...spaghetti and meatballs, shrimp scampi, and eggplant Parmesan. Portions were very adequate...an enjoyable evening...that left no... More
