Maybe, if you're lucky, you'll spot some Jersey Shore look-a-likes here. If not, you'll still see a handful of beefy gorillas and tanzilla guidettes. This establishment has a modern, Tuscan-inspired ambience. Here, friends and families love to mangia. Tired of the classic slice? Well, try something a bit more exciting, like eggplant, meatballs, or their famous Gino's special. The grandma slice is perfecto: crunchy crust and fresh ingredients. The sauce has little bits of ripe plum tomatoes, accents of basil, hints of cooked garlic, and, of course, fresh mozzarella.
