Zio GiGi was recommended to us by The proprietor of the Hotel Dali where we were staying. Very close to the Duomo, this trattoria is by far the freshest, well prepared food I have had. The prices are beyond reasonable, and the atmosphere is casually relaxed. The owner is a fascinatingly entertaining character. He breaks out into loud Italian songs, ops himself down to guests tables and chats with them, and gives so much life to the atmosphere that you know you are in a true Italian trattoria where love for food and entertaining shows through in the food. When something is done with love it cannot be duplicated by mere mimicry, it is original and shows. Zio GiGi prepares the food fresh and with care that shows what real Italian food tastes like when it comes from the heart. My wife and I have now been traveling throughout Europe for 18 days, and the food from GiGi's has topped any meal we have had in our travels.
