We just went here for the second time on 11/1/14. I had the shrimp fetticini alfredo. It was outstanding. Creamiest Alfredo I've ever had. The bread is hard on the outside and soft on the inside, jusg the way we like it. My husband had the Italian pork chops. i tasted a tiny bit and it was delicious. Get here... More

This place is the cutest little BYOB! You have to try the spinach arancinis. They are amazing! Their daily specials are always tasty!

Pasta was perfect.My friend had the Chicken Parma and it was good (but not great).I had the tiramisu which was average (not bad). The BYOB I did not know about but I will next... More

Great atmosphere. Great italian food. BYOB. Friendly neighborhood meeting place. We started with the sausage and peppers appetizer which was excellent along with the bread and olive oil. The green and red peppers were wonderful as well as the sauteed sausage in oil and garlic. We had both the pasta and vodka sauce and a special with square pasta with... More

We visit Gio's every time we go to Chicago. We love the atmosphere, the quality of food, the friendliness of the staff, and the price. You don't get a meal like that downtown. The rice ball appetizer is must. Authentic Italian at its best. Remember to bring your own wine as it is BYOB.

This street corner Italian market in the Bridgeport neighborhood is serving up some GREAT, homemade Italian food. This cozy, BYOB spot has you sitting amid shelves stocked with pasta, sauce and other Italian goodies. There are numerous daily specials and a full menu full of fantastic appetizers (including outstanding homemade arancini) and main courses. Three people in our group of... More

Good food and good food to buy and take home to cook. I had the ravioli and it was excellent. The bread is awesome. The place is WAY too small for as popular as it seems to be

DO NOT drive past this place! Go in, sit down, and get ready for an experience like none other. This corner "cafe & deli" put out items you find in some of the best restaurants but with the attention you can only get from a limited seating place. WOW ... after my first time there I was so happy with... More
