The food was excellent, not a lot of choice but who needs that when all dishes are so good. 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. Starter, pasta and meat dish together for Eur 37,50. Tiramisu... More

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

Wonderful 3 course meal. The simple choice between 3 main dishes and the fact that all 3 are amazing keeps the restaurant in my top preferances. The food is delicious and everything is fresh. Service is good and the place looks nice. The lack of menu is indeed a great experience.

This is great place. Quite liberating to have a pared down menu where you get the choice between two pasta dishes, two or three main courses and desert. Everything is cooked freshly and tastes wonderful. They are very generous with their side dishes. The quality of the food is high and the service very friendly.

Gio's is a known restaurant in Maastricht. When you go there you will see a lot of locals who like going there. As do I, the food is good the atmosphere is nice but it comes with a few perks. To begin, when you get there Gio's is a place you can't reserve. There is a seat or not and... More

Simple menu (there is none!) and you can choose between two pastas and three main courses (seafood, lamb or beef). We had the lamb and it was delicious. Although, by the time we had our salad and pasta course we were getting full. The main course with 4 lamb chops was too much. The house wine (Sangiovese) was very nice.... More

Gio's Cucina was packed on a Wednesday night - just leave your phone number and we will call you when we have a table. Gio's does not accept reservations but they guarantee you you will have a table! No menu, they will tell you the menu of that day (2 choices prima piatti and 3 choices secundo piatti). Top quality... More

Excellent service, friendly staff, comfortable table seating not to crowded, crisp white table cloth, set course menu with a glass of wine was approximately €45. For an excellent starter salad, tomatoe with fresh basil and mozzarella cheese. This was marred by a bruschetta soaked in sub standard oil. The two choices of pasta, ravioli in tomatoe sauce was excellent, two... More

The restaurant has no menu which is a good concept but in the end we got the idea that they charge whatever they want. For example for one glas of grappa we had to pay 10 euro's and the rest of the drinks were not split out on the bill. The food is good and decent but we found it... More
