Having seen this restuarant on out previous visit to a Manchester theatre and upon reading the pre theatre menu we decided to book a table ( 5.30p.m. to give ample time prior to the performance) for our next visit to The Opera House for Ghost. We Emailed the restuarant and received confirmation of our booking very promptly. Upon arrival we received a very warm welcome by the numerous members of waiting staff and were promptly given a table by the window. The menu arrived straight away and we were asked immediately for our drinks order - we decided upon a bottle of the Pinot Grigio which arrived at the table very promptly with a wine cooler. As the wine arrived yet another waiter arrived for our food order, fortunately seeing the menu previously we knew what we were going to eat so placed our order of pate and caprese salad followed by two steaks. Before we could take a sip of our wine the starters arrived which we both thoroughly enjoyed, though we did feel quite intimidated by the constant flow a variety of waiting staff walking by the table. As soon as you placed your cutlery on the table a waiter or waitress pounced to clear your plate, fill up the half filled wine glass and before we knew it the steak arrived. This was delicious and well cooked by the kitchen staff. Staff were attentive, though possibly due the fact that it was early evening and quiet when we first arrived rather over attentive. We were shell shocked by the experience and rather disappointed that our pre theatre meal had passed us by in a flash.

Nothing bad as such although the calamari starter was poor with too heavy batter and limp salad. Pizza too underwhelming - just not enough topping. Other companions left some food suggesting they thought the same. Sorry!

We went to Gio last night on our way to Rocky Horror Picture Show. We arrived late after a disaster on the taxis front and as a result were running late (and in rather strange garb!) the staff were friendly and obliging and in spite of asking for he food to be thrown straight at us in mind of our timings this was good, well-served and service could not have been more polite. Well done and thank you.
