Italian cuisine at it's purest

Gio's is a very special italian restaurant. It feels like you are dining in your own livingroom. At Gio's they don't have a menu and you can't make a reservation.

Got a table after somebody failed to turn up. They were turning people away all night. No menu just 3 main dishes meat, fish or pasta, I thought it a bit strange not having a menu but it did save a lot of thinking about. they brought a fish starter followed by a pasta course and then medallions of fillet....

Yesterday we (a party of 5) visited this restaurant. The atmosphere was very friendly. No paper menus, we were verbally offered the choice between 3 main courses (fillet of beef, lamb, or fish), and 2 pasta intermediate courses (penne with aïoli, or ravioli with ricocotta). The starter was fixed, green salad with bruschetta. We all took the fillet of beef,... More

We were impressed when we walked into the restaurant. The decor was cool. But the pasta didn't really taste nice. My aglio olio was tasteless I had to scoop some of the liquid from my husband's vongole pasta, which also was not fantastic. After reading all the positive reviews it was a major letdown. And it wasn't exactly cheap.

A limited but very well chosen 3 course price fixed dinner. Be prepared for a leisurely dinner, with well chosen pairing. Chef and owner were right there to make sure everything was done right

I was introduced to this restaurant by the manager of the Hotel we were staying at in Poswick. What a jewel! The best, by far, Italian food I have eaten outside Italy (And Im Italian!) As a warning, you cant pre-book, turn up early and reserve a table. The food is excellent and the atmosphere great

Heard a lot about Gio's, but never been there. Good heaven, this was really fantastic. You can choose only one menu with 2 different starters and 3 different main courses. So hardly any choice . Which makes life easy for you, for the staff and certainly for the kitchen. So the white brigade could indeed concentrate on this menu. We... More

Visited with a group of colleagues/friends, the food (multi-course) was fantastic, the service excellent, starting with the chef/owner. Totally recommend it, inside and outside seating.
