This is a small unassuming restaurant, but with good food options. Waitstaff was formal but professional. Food was presented well. Taste was there.

Traveling for business and decided to check out what was near my accommodation - Gio's popped up and I clicked through to see the restaurant's offerings. After reading the menu - particularly the summer "Barrielicious" menu I decided to head there for my dinner meal....More

What an incredible experience. Food....wow....to die for. Service and attention first rate and perfectly paced. I cannot wait to return. You must make a reservation as it is quite small. We learned our lesson the first time when we stopped by on a Wednesday and...More

Food as always at Gio's is fantastic.... their attention to detail and food combinations is always a pleasurable experience. Love the service we get - feels like home. Bon Apetit! You won't find better Italian cuisine with better staff.

Heard about Gio's so I took my GF last night for dinner. Upon arrival the restaurant is small and nicely appointed with black linens and Frank Sinatra esque tunes playing in the background. This is where the positive experience stopped. Our server was horrible! She...More

For a memorable evening please relax and enjoy our traditional Italian cuisine. Using much of our local harvest, Gio’s Ristorante has created a menu that’s not so much bound to Italian traditions, but inspired by them. Gio’s will make your visit one to remember. Anyone who has spent time dining around Italy knows how hard it is to transport true Italian character of food to anywhere else. So here at Gio’s Ristorante much of the texture and flavor is tied to the freshness and vibrancy of the ingredients that you almost have to be there to get it. Gio’s captures that essence when cooking Italian food from the heart.
