We went here for my birthday the other day – a group of 24 people. They were happy to let us have the table all evening, the service was great and friendly, we had the a la carte menu so we could cater for various diets/food allergies, but the kitchen coped magnificently despite the restaurant being very busy. Everyone commented on how lovely the food was, how good the service was, how good the atmosphere was. We all had a great time. And I found the chairs comfortable (nice as I have a bad back and some Italian restaurants go for those uncomfortable wooden ones). 5*.

I retired from my NHS job yesterday, and booked for 10 friends/colleagues to share a meal at Gio’s last night. We were seated in the window facing the Midland, and it was tricky for half of us not to be able to leave the table without making everyone on our side stand up, but what a great vantage point from which to watch the world blow by in the noisy gale beating up the world outside. The food was good, and reasonably priced, but the best things about this restaurant were the attentive but not intrusive staff, efficient service and lively ambience. It was so central for all our buses and trams home. I look forward to going again with my family, and I hope it will be soon. Thank you for your good humour, and for giving us the perfect place for my send-off. Jenny Daniel

What can I say… My girlfriend and I arrived at 6pm on a Wed night and I had a table booked for 7. Thought we could have a drink first while we waited but the head waiter took us straight to a table! The wine was lovely (Pino Grigio Rose) and the starters and main meal were of excellent quality. You could tell time and effort were put into them. The waitress we had for the evening was very pleasant and kept the wine flowing for us. As the evening progressed the restaurant got very busy but was still a very pleasant atmosphere. I WILL be re attending Gio’s without doubt, and it will be soon. Thanks for a lovely evening.

My first visit here was at the least, very very entertaining. The service was top notch. For example, our lively host, seeing there was only 2 of us, went out of his way to find us a cosy table for 2. The food was excellent – and you do get lots of it so come hungry! Throughout our meal the waiters made sure we were at ease – and this was on a busy Saturday night. I’d definitely return again and again.
