This wonderful Italian, hidden in Gloucester Green, features simple but delicious food served by an attentive and polite staff - a real no-frills treat. The tables have the chequered tablecloths that are universally emblematic of simple trattorias while the bar - with its stacks of shiny bottles - is the eye-catching centrepiece. The food - pasta, pizzas and grills - is quite basic and there are no attempts to add needless gimmicks. However, it is truly authentic and a real pleasure to tuck into. As for the price - you certainly won't be complaining.
I am almost reluctant to write a review because we sometimes struggle to get a table as it is. However, for authentic Italian food and atmosphere at a fair price you cannot beat Gino's. It is generally busy and the tables can be a little close together for comfort, but everyone is always chattering away so if you want to talk you don't feel that everyone is listening to what you are saying and the place being busy and noisy just adds to the charm. Who wants to go to an empty restaurant anyway!
We arrived late having found parking difficult, hadn't booked and needed to get to a concert. We explained and they said they'd try to help. The place was heaving as it was Saturday night but we were in and out very quickly. The food was delicious-good ingredients cooked well. A little noisy perhaps but typical italian atmosphere. Pleasant very helpful staff. The menu looked good though we were in such a rush a self imposed 1 minute to make a choice means we'll be back for a more leisurely look at the menu.
Gino's is somewhere that is unknown to most of my friends - until I suggest a meal there. Popular amongst Oxford students and those who love a good deal, this bustling little Italian spaghetti house is never short of excellent.
The atmosphere created is very much that of an Italian family home: the waiters and waitresses, all members of it. Such is the ambience, that the said family even join you, at times, for a bit of 'Tagliatele de la Casa'.
Prices are very reasonable, and the food is excellent - thoroughly recommended!
