Description: For a memorable evening please relax and enjoy our traditional Italian cuisine. Using much of our local harvest, Gio’s Ristorante has created a menu that’s not so much bound to Italian traditions, but inspired by them. Gio’s will make your visit one to remember. Anyone who has spent time dining around Italy knows how hard it is to transport true Italian character of food to anywhere else. So here at Gio’s Ristorante much of the texture and flavor is tied to the freshness and vibrancy of the ingredients that you almost have to be there to get it. Gio’s captures that essence when cooking Italian food from the heart.

One of the best meals my family and I have ever had in a restaurant. We had a variety of dishes off of the menu and each one was delicious, filling and left us wanting more! The staff were very kind and personable, willing to explain portions of the menu in which we did not fully understand. I will be... More

Terrible! I could tell the was tortellini had been previously frozen, you can't mistake that frozen taste. All I could taste was flour and nothing else. Couldn't even tell you what was inside the tortellini. I had high expectation given all the reviews and was extremely let down. They only charged me 1/2 price but then again I only ate... More

There isn't anything I cannot say negative about this great restaurant, only maybe its location and size.....needs more seating and parking. The food is amazing and the staff are wonderful. The best calamari around town.....

We ate at Gio's with my sister and brother in law last weekend to celebrate our birthdays and upcoming Anniversary. The food was great, everyone enjoyed their individual selections from either the menu or the Chef's specials. It was also nice to know it is open for Sunday Dinner - which many restaurants are not. We will definitely be back.... More

My girlfriend and I ate at Gio's this past week. Every morsel of food was to die for ( fried boccacini, amazing beef carpaccio, veal marsala, seafood linguini, and a delightful raspberry white chocolate gelatto for dessert). I wish I could remember the servers name, for he was very knowledgable and attentive. We will definately return and recommend to our... More

Beef carpaccio was perfect , caprese salad was wonderfully flavourful, and our entrees seafood linguine... More
