gio has to be one of the best restaurants in Halifax. I've had lunch and dinner here in the last 10 days and both were incredible. Light airy calamari, duck and blue cheese poutine - you have to try it to believe it. Scallops at lunch will get you through the day. But at night the menu really takes off.... More

We just happened on Gio in the Prince George hotel. The menu looked superb with something for every palate. The ambiance is excellent with booths and open tables. Our waiter was knowledgable and efficient. And the meal.... Truly outstanding. Oysters, sea bass and elk....savored every mouthful !!

a lovely restaurant with an eclectic menu featuring very fresh ingredients. I had the arctic char served on a bed of risotto. The dish was moist and cooked to perfection. Well chosen and reasonably priced wine list.

We were greeted like stars by Terry and her service was unbelievable. We were not sure what to have for dinner and her suggestion was excellent. I would... More

After debating if we should eat in the hotel, we decided to try it and were we happy! Would absolutely go back. Sat at the bar and watched the bartender make each specialty drink with painstaking efforts. Made us want to try more drinks than we could handle. We had the kale salad with grilled peach dressing and the beet... More

We stayed at The Prince George for my birthday and my husband had booked a table at Gio for evening meal. Having looked at the menu initially I wasn't sure, however each course I had met expectations and was tasty, very good value with a very good portion size. I had beet salad, the char and then the key lime... More

I was so excited to try Gio after reading so many favourable reviews, seeing so many beautiful images of their food online and of course, trusting that this is a Taste of Nova Scotia restaurant and therefore should be serving food of an outstanding quality. When we entered we were greeted with a chilly reception as the hostess demanded to... More

Food was excellent as was the staff, even had little treats thrown in at no extra cost! Tables are well spaced, giving a nice ambience.
