The chicken is very good - you get a half and it's plenty. But... so much garlic! I reeked for 2 days! The orange is quite tasty otherwise. Panini was heavy on the bread - although the meatballs were also quite good. It isn't inexpensive - but you get a lot to eat. Now, they give you silverware and a... More

This place is so consistently terrific. Been here 25+ times since they opened... And now living in B'HAM for last few years, I hit Gios almost every time in town. DiaVola & the Lemon Sorrento are easily our favorites; as is the Pollo Margherita . So very good, so very consistent!

Went here on a Saturday night with 6 people. Parking available on the street and a small lot across from restaurant. You walk in and stand in a short line to order your food. The choices are 3 or 4 different flavors of chicken which comes with a salad and bread. They also have a pasta dish. You find a... More

This is a fairly spartan establishment where you order at a counter and seat yourself. The food we had was pretty good Italian, but the prices are high enough that you'd expect either extra special food or a more refined service and dining experience. Pasta and sauce were fine but not extra-specially notable. Chicken was pretty good but not appreciably... More

Gio's is part of a cluster of restaurants on Hemphill Avenue that act like a little Italian village. It's all Neapolitan themed because the owner is from Naples. Our party of six went early on a Saturday night to make sure we could be seated and we barely made it. You order at a counter and then the food comes... More

My husband and I split the lemon chicken with extra salad and garlic bread. Dipped chicken and bread in sauce. DELISH. We then went across the street for gelato and cafe americano. Everything was so good, we wanted more but were too full. We'll go back.

If you haven't been to Gio's Chicken Amalfitano, you are missing out. The chicken is excellent. My husband get's a spicy chicken dish, that I can't find on the web site menu currently, that is out of this world good! It's like diablo chicken or something like that. The salad is simple and delicious. I haven't had a single bad... More

This Italian restaurant is all about chicken and chicken dominates the menu. I had the Diavola chicken, which is a little spicy. Comes with a simple but good salad, baked chicken in a spicy broth and garlic bread. The chicken was very tender, moist and tasty. Coca-Cola is served in the aluminum bottle. The restaurant is not fancy, but the... More

I visited Gio's on a busy Saturday night. This is definitely canteen style dining. One queues to order from a limited chicken dominated menu (what else!). It's also byo although wine can be bought on site. It's good, wholesome Italian food. No pizzas ( they are available for the sister restaurant next door). Enjoy the hubbub and simplicity of Gio's.
