Description: Welcome to Gio's Ristorante & Bar located in the heart of beautiful downtown St. Louis in the Gateway One Building. Gio's cozy dining room offers one of downtown's most spectacular views. Our large outdoor bar & patio are perfect for game days. Bar Gio, with its contemporary decor and brick pizza oven is the ideal place to sit back and relax. Gio's is conveniently located just minutes away from most downtown venues and 2 blocks from Busch Stadium. The kitchen at Gio's is quickly becoming known for serving some of the city's finest Italian cuisine. The menu features a variety of pasta, seafood, steaks and specialty entrees, all at affordable prices. It only tastes expensive! Bar Gio offers a lighter fare of house made brick-oven pizzas, panini sandwiches and traditional pub grub. Service is polished casual and family friendly. Gio's is the perfect spot for an important business meeting, a romantic dinner or a get together with friends.

Great food, good service...still trying to figure out why we were the only ones in the restaurant at 7pm on a Saturday night!

“Great Italian food (and service) for a good price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

We walked to this restaurant from our downtown hotel, having reserved a table on OpenTable. We started with garlic bread and two salads: the grilled caesar was good but the Gio's salad was great! Such a flavorful viniagrette.
The linguini with clams was SO garlicky - yum! And the ravioli sauce was a wonderful tomato basil combination. We ate so much we had no room for dessert.

The food here is great! My favorite dish is the Tortellini al Brodo. It's a very light dish with lots of flavor. Highly recommend!

“Very good food, value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Had an amazing meal there with a table of 12 colleagues. Amazing food, everything was delicious, especially the fried calamari, spaghetti with meat sauce and pork chops. Special mention about the wine list. Great wine at reasonable price. The only complaint is That the carpet was very sticky so it was sort of yucky when you think about it. No view from the restaurant of the arch, maybe you can get a view of the arch in the winter without the leaves on the trees. Highly recommended for business dinners.

“Downtown surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

Too exhausted to head to some of the better-known restaurants around St. Louis, we were downtown and opted to stop at Gio's, and we were not one bit disappointed. We didn't expect to be overwhelmed, thanks to the reviews, but what we had was truly delicious--veal parm and tortellini al brodo, which was fresh and flavorful. If you don't expect something fabulous, you will not be disappointed. Portions were ample and the prices were right. Recommended.
