“The ambiance of a NY trattoria only better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

Delicious and authentic Italian food in the heart of Low Country.
The calamari was done to perfection and served with a delicious sauce.
All in our party of four ordered different entrees and one was better than the next.
Personally, I would have expected to find a restaurant of this caliber in a large city with a strong Italian influence, but I am delighted to find this gem. Run, don't walk for some of the best food to be found on Pawleys Island, SC

“Excellent Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Very polite service. Children friendly. Excellent service. We loved it, we will go back!! I think cloth table cloths and linen would be a nice touch. But that is the ONLY suggestion I have, Great food great service. Wow
We had wine, we had eggplant. We had a seafood plate. All fresh made.

“Gio's Restaurant was very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I had linguine and broccoli and it was delicious. Salad was good. Nice waitress. They are moving across the street to be right on route 17 and we will certainly go there again.

“Currently our top of the list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Just moved to Pawleys Island after living in 8 other states. Since I'm originally from New Jersey, I have strong preferences in my pizza. From the three I've tried so far, Gio's tops the list. Feels like home. The family and staff seem to love what they're doing. Apparently they are moving a small distance in the near future to a better location ( and closer to our new home). Pick-up and delivery as well. Menu looks inviting and servings we observed were more than generous.

“Lousy italian food, save your $”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

If this restaurant cannot even make a decent caesar salad (they used iceburg lettuce), then forget about it! The worst meal I have ever had in my life. If this place needs to skimp on the right lettuce, uses bagged, pre-shredded cheese and gives you 3 lousy pieces of chicken tenderloin pounded so thin you can see through it.....you should just give it up and move on. You people don't know italian food for you life. Terrible!

I am sorry to read your review. I am also lead to believe you maybe mistaken in which restaurant you are reviewing. You stated that we used iceberg lettuce and pre packaged shredded cheese, both statements are untrue. We only use fresh romaine hearts in our Caesar salads and cheese grated fresh per order. We NEVER use bagged lettuce or prepackaged cheeses or produce. I invite you to come back and try us again and if you wish, our current open kitchen will even allow you to watch our chefs work on your order.
