I had the worst experience here ever! I dined in witb a friend of mine about an hour ago , as soon as we walked in the female worker behind the counter gave us strange looks and didn’t even greet us. As we went to...sit down the waitress we were assigned to acted like she didn’t even want to sit us. Even after we realized the vibe was off we still stayed to eat because the food looked really good online. The whole time the waitress “served” us she seemed to have an attitude & was rolling her eyes. The only friendly/ nice worker was the short lady with a cute diva/rockstar look. A man asked if we wanted bread we said yeah but he never brung it out but brung it out to everyone else that was around us. From the workers down to the customers everyone seemed to have a problem with us being the only African American ones there , the looks we received were outrages. Will definitely not be returning , if you are African American I advise you to go eat elsewhere!More

I was looking forward to ordering the Cafe Gio pot roast, as my husband enjoyed it a few nights prior. When I arrived, it was "not available" however it was still listed on the menu. I wound up ordering the Veal Marsala and it was...horrible. Tough meat and loaded with salt. The pasta side dish was no better. The red sauce tasted like it was from a can of cheap sauce. NEVER AGAIN !!!.More

The bake clams had soggy water down bread crumbs no taste.The fried zucchini was terrible all mush.Lobster Ravioli with scallops & baby shrimp in a creamy pink sauce,the sauce was so watery,the shrimp was tough.I did not remember the scallops,the few ravioli itself was good.But...the drippy sauce ruined the dish.The Scarpiello had ground up sausage meat & my husband who never complains said never again to eat there.Our garlic knots,our coffee & carrot cake were good.Service was excellent,its a shame food was not good.More

I ate tonight at the Café Gio. It’s not that far from the SpringHill Suites as the crow flies but walking was a little distance. This restaurant is very nice!!! My server, Christina, was the BEST!!! Very nice, super personality, extremely attentive to my culinary...needs, very knowledgeable about the foods and specials of this place!!!!! I loved her….she was great!!! She recommended I have the Portabello Mushroom for an appetizer and it was the best….then I had Veal Marsala and it was so tasty and it was a huge serving. I got extra cheese put on it and it tasted great!!! My side was spaghetti with Marsala sauce and it also was great!!! They had a fast WiFi service with a password but it was super fast!!!! This place sits in a shopping center but it’s so easy to get to!!! Try this place when on Long Island!!! I would come back for sure!!! The Pinot Noir wine was pretty darn good also for a house wine!!!!!More

Friendly people but needs updating. Floors and furniture didn’t seem clean and sauce was bland. Good specials though

The kitchen at Cafe Gio excels in common Italia/American dishes. Food preparation and presentation is with very good taste, compared to High price restaurants. At the time of dessert, I will recommend their house-made cannolis. The place atmosphere is quint and sometimes noisy by their...catering tablesMore

As far as the decor, this restaurant is average. I have their shrimp pizza and it was great. I have also had the lasagna and it is more sauce than meat which is good. They do not have any drink specials or happy hours but...they do have plenty of parking and it is right off exit 39 on Sunrise Hwy. If you are looking for an average place to grab something to eat, then this is the place for you.More

We eat there several times a week and always enjoy ourselves. The food is good and the service is excellent. What more can I say except the prices are reasonable.
