We often find it difficult to find a 'proper' Italian restaurant so we were pleasantly surprised to find this one tucked away at the back of Oxford's bus-station; once inside however you are transported to the Mediterranean! We were made to feel welcome and given plenty of time to peruse the menu. I chose one of the blackboard specials, a seafood ravioli, which was new to me, and my partner had his favourite veal milanese. We both enjoyed our choices very much. My Cassata dessert was delicious and my partner's request for advice on the best way to prepare Irish coffee was kindly demonstrated by our host! Altogether a lovely experience and worth a return visit to Oxford.

Thank Marilyn S

Our group of 4 were on a two night city break in Oxford and were looking for a nice little Italian restaurant on our second night. We had been sightseeing all day and came past Bella Italia (very busy) and Ask (also very busy), we walked on and found Gino's...... empty. The restaurant had been open for about half an hour or so, we were welcomed by friendly staff and given choice of any table. The service was very good, we were not rushed nor forgotten. The food was very good and reasonably priced, and not hit with overpriced wine either. When we left after our 3 course meals the restaurant was pleasantly busy....and deservedly so. We were pleased we walked past the other places.

We popped in here with family after booking and were pleasantly surprised. All 4 of us had a great meal that was superb and we will certainly be going back again. Has to be the first stop for a decent, authentic italian meal.
