“Great food, lack of service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

This was our first visit to Gios - the food was delicious! I would definately eat it again and the takeaway service is a very good idea. Unfortunately we found the service slightly non-existence which was a shame. No checking how the meal was, asking if we would like more drinks and trying to get attention to pay the bill.

The food is always excellent! The service is friendly and fast. This is one of our favourite places to eat and I can not recommend it highly enough!

“Ok but variable service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

Food was good standard but service can be very slow and staff didn't want to acknowledge a 45 plus min wait. Also due to small space and decor, it only takes one noisy table for your experience to be spolied by others.

“A popular restaurant in the village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Have visited twice in the last month, food was some of the best Ive tasted in an Italian. The mushrooms were excellent as a starter and presented well on the plate. Pizzas were large and tasty and pasta and chicken dishes excellent.
It was very busy first time we visited, but on our second visit was quite at 7.00pm but by 8.00 was nearly full. Would recommend booking to avoid disappointment.

“Noisy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Service good. Food generous, hot and tasty but this was the noisiest restaurant I have ever eaten in. I don't know whether there is something about the acoustics or perhaps as there wasn't any background music, people didn't keep their voices down. Although quite busy there wasn't any particular table being rowdy, but we found it difficult to hear what each other said and continually had to raise our voices to be heard which doesn't make for a relaxing meal out. Strange because never had same problem with other restaurants of similar size.
