We were visiting the Bridgewater Hall and needed a quick bit to eat before the concert began - Gio Ristorante was perfect - from the greeting and the quick understanding that we were on a tight schedule through to the lovely pizzas. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will return next time we are visiting the Bridgewater Hall

We were so so impressed by this place the staff we're genuinely fantastic. They were so friendly and passionate. We both had pizzas which were beautiful. I had the home made tiramisu for dessert which was fantastic with what was the best double espresso ever. Can't wait to go back here such a great place.

After having a table cancelled by Tempus Restaurant on what was a special occasion, we booked a table at this restaurant for 5:30pm 13 December. As we were attending a concert at the Bridgewater Hall all timings were planned, even down to booking and prepaying the NCP car park opposite. Now don't get me wrong, Gio is clearly a clean... More

Our drinks order was wrong, we sent the garlic bread back as it was just dough no garlic to be tasted. My husbands main course came 10min after all the others...there wasn't a lot of diners so don't know why. My friend... More

I've eaten here a couple of times now and both have been okay, but nothing more than that. Whilst the set menu is initially attractive, the food options on it are fairly limited and the speed at which the starters arrive indicate much is pre-prepared. I just found the whole meal a little bland and even when adding on a... More

Always a warm welcome and excellent value Italian food at as very reasonable price for City Centre eating. Have an early theatre menu which is good especially if using the Bridgewater Hall. eaten there regularly and never been disappointed. Needs booking if you are going early evening

I you like a meal where you get great service, great Italian food and a buzzing atmosphere go here. We have been here several times over the years and its always been a nice experience. It can get very busy (which is a good sign), but we have always been accommodated even though we haven't booked.

I had been to this restaurant several times when visiting Manchester to watch football in recent years. It is usually a good place for pizza or pasta with reasonable prices and relatively fast service. Not on this occasion alas. For 2 plates of pasta, a pizza, one dessert, a bottle of water and a bottle of average wine we were... More
