An authentic pizza and pasta Italian restaurant run by the Failla family who always extend a friendly welcome. Not an extensive or fancy menu but a very good selection of pizza, pasta and risotto favourites with a few chicken, steak and fish dishes too which are always excellent. Good regional wines at sensible prices. A smart café /diner ambience and a simple good food formula make Gio's a great value place to have a very pleasant meal.

I particularly like the house Calzone folded pizza.

If we want somewhere to enjoy a good meal together without paying the earth or a place to meet friends Gio's comes high on our list.

We have been visiting since Mick and Maria opened this intimate family run restaurant appx 6 years ago and we have never been disappointed by either the food or the service. The menu has plenty of choice, the food fresh and tasty and we find the hospitality to be first class. Yes it is a small restaurant so can get a little cramped and loud but that can happen in any restaurant. There is never a rush here when we book a table its ours for the evening its not about fast turnaround of customers,which is how it should be. If you are in a hurry either advise them when ordering or go to a McDonalds drive thru. We have also hired the restaurant for a family event and it was perfect. If you want excellent home cooked Italian food with the perfect hosts don't look any further than this little gem. Keep up the hard work guys!

Small intimate family run business - lovely atmosphere, food authentic with 'specials' available to the main menu. Mike and Maria run the ship so well, we can honestly say we have never had a bad experience here, plus 5 gold stars for hygene

Food was good, not excellent, tables small and a little cramped. Service was a little hit and miss but would visit again if I wanted pizza etc

This was our first visit to Gios - the food was delicious! I would definately eat it again and the takeaway service is a very good idea. Unfortunately we found the service slightly non-existence which was a shame. No checking how the meal was, asking if we would like more drinks and trying to get attention to pay the bill.
