This place is old and outdated. The
food is terrible and misrepresented. My wife's Traverse city salad stated that it comes with dried cherries. They really give you dried cranberries which cost much less than cherries. In addition, the Romaine lettuce was old and wilted. I had spaghetti and meatballs, the meatballs were ok but the marinara sauce was terrible. It had an off, completely bland taste. It tasted like tomato puree with nothing else, no herbs, no garlic, no salt, terrible!!! Never again
DONT DRINK THE GALLIANO.
( DONT DRINK THE GALLIANO ), SOMEBODY HAS PUT FLORENTINO IN THE GALLIANO BOTTLE. IF YOU LIKE GALLIANO IN YOUR COFFEE AS AN AFTER DRINK FORGET IT. THATS MY ONLY COMPLAINT, THE FOOD IS GREAT AND THE SERVICE IS EVEN BETTER. THE WAITER I HAD WAS LARRY HE HAS GOT TO BE THE GREATEST.
In my experience, Gino's Pizza harkens back to old-school Chicago pizza in its supreme foldability and just-so balance among sauce, dough and cheese. It is delicious. I must admit that once in a blue moon I get a pie and eat the whole pie myself.
Here is a great italian restaurant that serves wonderful pizza, several different pastas that will surprise you with great flavors. The food is simple and tasty. Enjoy the cosy room and neigborhood people. For the price, you cannot top the food here.
