The 4 of us decided to try someplace north of the river and opted for BC's first capital.
Gino's blew us away, although it appears like a nice small place, the greeting we got and the food that we ordered guaranteed our return for future visits.
we ordered the roast lamb, a pizza and the fish and chips. you know it's good food when there was no talking for 15 minutes during our meal. The waiter was very pleasant and knowledgable and helped answer all of our questions and make substitutions.
the fish and chips were some of the best that i've had in the lower mainland. not a fan of the heavy batter/greasy ones from pajos, i was pleasantly surprised by what they offered here.
and the fries! oh the fries, nice and crisp and seemed to have some sort of garlic seasoning to them.
all in all the pizza looked great, and the lamb was more than enough, that we ended up taking more than half home for lunches the next day.
it's been around for a few years, and clearly demonstrates quality over quantity.
