This place has been long gone for several years. It is just an empty building with no one around it.

Good pricing, friendly staff, no wait, and great food!!! If you are in Des Moines you need to go to Gino's- it has a long history here. If your from Des Moines- then give the chains a break and support good local food!!

Gino's has long been a staple of Italian/American fare in Des Moines. I'm not sure why everyone raves about them, there are SO many other and much better Italian restaurants in the Des Moines area. We went there for my birthday...in hindsight not such a...More

Loved the selection on the menu and pepper steak was wonderful! My husband enjoyed spaghetti and meatballs and we all shared a great bottle of merlot. It tasted just like being in Firenza
