Description: For a memorable evening please relax and enjoy our traditional Italian cuisine. Using much of our local harvest, Gio’s Ristorante has created a menu that’s not so much bound to Italian traditions, but inspired by them. Gio’s will make your visit one to remember. Anyone who has spent time dining around Italy knows how hard it is to transport true Italian character of food to anywhere else. So here at Gio’s Ristorante much of the texture and flavor is tied to the freshness and vibrancy of the ingredients that you almost have to be there to get it. Gio’s captures that essence when cooking Italian food from the heart.

“Superb, would certainly recommend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend and I ate at Gio's this past week. Every morsel of food was to die for ( fried boccacini, amazing beef carpaccio, veal marsala, seafood linguini, and a delightful raspberry white chocolate gelatto for dessert).

I wish I could remember the servers name, for he was very knowledgable and attentive.

We will definately return and recommend to our friends and family, thank you Gio's!

“little unexpected jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

Date night with my wife and I took us here for the first time. We were astonished at how good this small restaurant was…from the cozy european style seating, through the excellent attentive service (Wagner the seasoned waiter) and of course to the amazing food. Beef carpaccio was perfect , caprese salad was wonderfully flavourful, and our entrees seafood linguine and veal marsala were so good that sharing was a must. The wine list was affordable and authentic Italian.
We will be back!

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

This is a wonderful little Italian restaurant that serves an excellent meal. Our favorite is the four course Chef's Special. It's a surprise of delights every time we go to enjoy it.

“Dinner with Friends”

We planned a night out with friends and heard good things about this restaurant. Our dining experience was excellent. The food and service were both of a very high standard. We would return here again without hesitation.
