Just OK I had vegetable pizza which was very doughy and heavy the toppings were a biy tasteless and soggy reminded me of frozen food. Husband had chilli beef pasta which was ok but got a bit sickening the atmosphere is nice I won't be back but it's certainly not the worst meal I've had

My boyfriend and I stayed in Portrush for a couple of days. On our first evening we stopped at Don Gio's as all the other places seemed to be overcrowded. The atmosphere inside is very nice, not much noise from the street and quiet Jazz/ Blues music. We had the fish of the day (cod) with rosemary potatoes and a... More

Probably one of the worst meals I have had at a Restaurant in recent memory. We ordered a Pizza and some pasta dishes and all were extremely flavorless. Honestly the Pizza & Pasta reminded me of school dinners.

The first time we went about 3 years ago the pizza was amazing and we go back hoping to get it again but unfortunately we are disappointed. We ordered a kids pizza that was inedible as the base was burnt... More

The restaurant was very quiet when we were there despite all of the ones around the harbour area being very busy. The food was tasty but nothing out of the ordinary. The most annoying thing I found was to be charged £1.75 for a small glass of flat coke poured from a large bottle, this is off-putting and false economy.... More
