“Amazing”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Family ate here around christmas and it was simply the best italian food outside of Italy. The seating and reservation policy is a bit confusing but make sure to call ahead. Very much family style and very much worth it.

“... amazing, for a real eating experience ...”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

... suggested as a good italian restaurant, I would say that it is one of the best I tried outside Italy!
Very nice atmosfere, there is not a fixed menú, you can chose from the availabilities of the day for first (2) and main (3) plates ... they will bring you a starter and a bruschetta in addition ... Available also 2 choices per dessert.
Everything has been really delicious ... we will go back soon!

“Mamma Mia this was excellent!”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

Italian Restaurants in Holland are generally glorified pizzeria's with walls with painted gondola's and mediocre quality. Gio's Cucina was absolutely amazing, the location, the ambience, the service, the food were wonderful! It’s a pity you cannot reserve, but you can put your name down and they will call you when your table is ready. Do not expect a large menu, they tell you whats available and its great. They cater for vegetarians and everything is presented beautifully. It does not get more Italian! Well done we will be back!

“Rude staff”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Hotel concierge recommended Gio's, however upon entering an almost empty restaurant found staff to be rude and condescending. Was shown to a table and asked for a menu, I was informed that there were no menus. Found staff to be very rude so decided to leve. There are lots of fabulous restaurants in Maastricht to choose from so if service is important to you, Gio's is probably not for u.

“Best Italian Restaurant in Maastricht - actually the best Italian restaurant in the whole of Holland!”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

This little family run restaurant is truly one of my favorite restaurants in the Netherlands. We actually visited Maastrict last weekend just as an exuse to go here to have dinner here again! The prices are in the high end of the spectrum (we paid about 100 € for 2 people), but the food is truly amazing and the atmosphere is relaxed. The cook really knows what he is doing. You deserve to go here at least once in your life.
The restaurant does not offer reservations, so be early! They don't have a menu, so the dishes vary.
