The food and drinks here are amazing! When we made a reservation my boyfriend told them I was a vegetarian, so they started off with an amuse bouche with mine being vegetarian and my boyfriends the meat option (very nice touch) We started off with the gnocchi, in my opinion this is the best appetizer in Halifax with their sea bass tacos a close second. My boyfriend and I like to share plates so we ordered the vegetarian option of tofu (which was excellent) and the ravioli. Since the ravioli came with bacon jam the server asked if we would like it on the side (to accomodate me not eating meat) When the dishes arrived she dropped the small plate of bacon jam on the floor, we told her not to worry and she cleaned it up and brought us another portion. She later comped the dessert we ordered due to the spill, which was by no means necessary but really pushed the service to another level. All the servers there seem very professional and friendly our server that night was Karine, in my opinion one of the best we have encountered. Gio is now our restaurant of choice, check it out and try the "cenote" one of the best cocktails in the city!
