With the exception of Vincent, Morepatriarch of the Marino family, who passed in 1970, Gino's remains 100% family owned and operated today.Gino's originally was located on Perkins Road, and moved to its current beautiful facilities on Bennington in 1975. Gino's specializes in traditional southern Italian food, Mediterranean style, with fresh seafood and, of course, steaks. At Gino's, our signature dish is Arancini, and our house specialties include Mama's Special Salad, Gino's Italian Salad and Laurence Bread.
