Great Italian restaurant at hot spot Vrijthof Maastricht situated at the less crowded side of the square. Gio (with nicely soft Maastrichts G) personally explains the menu of the day, a compact choice of main menu as well as antipasta. The rest of the 4 course dinner is fixed but consists of excellent Italian ingredients. Correctly served by his Italian... More

Very delicious Italian food with a nice concept that the food is being put on your plate out of a larger boel by the waiters. Very expensive though and you don't get a menu card.

Three of us went. Quite impressed. Not your typical Italian restaurant with a menu full of pasta and pizza options. They offer set menu with options to pick your starter from two options and main from three options. Friends and I ordered different dishes. All options were excellent. Very authentic Italian taste at reasonable price - 38 eur per head.... More

The menu is simple : basically you can choose fish or meat and they do the rest. So good food for good price and not too many choices. You cannot make any reservation though so come early if you want a table because it is usually fully booked.

It's only with fixed menu, 3 dishes, the price is a bit higher than the average restaurant in Maastricht but it is worth it!!! It has an amazing combination of flavours and tastes, from the initial salad to the meat with all the side dishes. The staff is very friendly and caring, everything is well cared while you're on the... More

This was such a great find. It is on the main square in Maastricht but really doesn't have a sign so you have to seek it out. They do not take reservations so we showed up at 5:30 when they opened. There were all these people going in so we were worried we wouldn't get a table. We decided to... More

The service was very gracious and welcoming but not accurate at all, mistakes were made with every course and with the bill. Well, no harm done, we hade a wonderful evening.

Great Italian place and food. We arrived at 19.30 and got a table at 21.15. Picked the ravioli and penne, perfect choice. The main meat dish was great as well. The service was ok, not the most friendly or accurate, we were missed with ordering drinks. Couldn't pay a tip (no cash) and not possible to pay the tip by... More

We went to Gio's Cucina for a birthday dinner and had a fantastic evening. The food was excellent relatively simple, abundant but really tasty and really Italian. The antipasti were traditional but really tasty the garlic pasta was delicious and the steak was good to perfection and accompanied with lots of vegetable and some wonderful fried potatoes. Only problem is... More
