Dining – Salinas

Salinas is in the center of the farmland known as “California’s salad bowl.” Many Salinas restaurants take advantage of their proximity to the fields by prominently featuring locally grown produce. The hub of the Salinas restaurant scene is in Oldtown Salinas, just a few steps away from the National Steinbeck Center Museum.

 

Gino’s

The unique taste of Gino’s food, derived from Luigi’s unswerving passion for excellence, proved to be the impetus for the company’s growth over the years to come. It ultimately took over half a century for Luigi to achieve his dream, but he was finally able to see his company establish itself in the marketplace with a reputation of producing great food.We are confident that you will appreciate the depths of these convictions each time you experience one of our fine Restaurants, and we especially hope the presence of our Italian cuisine in your kitchen will bring an extra measure of warmth, love, and memorable times for both family and friends.
