“Classic Italian”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

I ate here on a quiet Tuesday night. the restaurant was quiet .It was a nicely old fashioned and traditional Italian restaurant that looked as though it has been there for years ( red checked table cloths and dark wood ) This set a nice and comforting atmosphere. The menu was good quality and upmarket Italian. The range and ingredients used were impressive. It took a while and a few changed decisions to choose what to eat as so much sounded good. I had the rack of lamb with rosemary and it was cooked to perfection. My pal had the scottish steak in a prawn and mushroom sauce and she cleared the plate. The service was classic as well. Top rate food.

“Not quite there!”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

We visited Gio's during a short break in St. Helier. We were first attracted to the restaurant as it was very busy (always a good sign). We were told that they had no tables and advised to come back in 40 minutes, despite there being empty tables, which were still empty when we came back (it was quite a chilly evening and we had to kill time by just walking around in circles!!). My partner is a chef and was disappointed that the accompanying spinach with his otherwise excellent fish was of the frozen variety. Also, given the price of the mains it would be nice if veg/salad was included and not charged seperately. My apple pie dessert was very nice, but would have been ruined had I accepted the offer to have it warmed through in the microwave. Overall, a nice meal, but sadly lacking in the finer details.

“Italian Restaurant with a great variety of traditional dishes”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

Slightly old fashioned but in a nice way,Large variety of fish and meat dishes in addition to the main menus. . Smooth unhurried service from staff that have been there for years. Well patronised by the local business community, Not cheap but a very reliable place to take clients and family for occasions. Try the fresh raspberries with Zabaglione sauce.

“Excellent food, very welcoming, discreetly attentive.”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

This proved to be a real find on a recent Jersey break. Plenty of choice, and the food was excellent. Beautifully presented, cooked to perfection, and plentiful. The manager was genuinely interested in our requirements, and his staff attended to our needs unobtrusively.
We were so impressed we went again the following evening, and were not disappointed.
