Every weekend we pass gios and it always looks busy, I read reviews and thought I'd give it a go! My husband and I like going to different restaurants. We were greeted by a gentleman, he shown us to our table. A waitress came over with menus, never asked us if we wanted a drink. About 10 minutes later another... More

This is a really nice Italian restaurant right besides Bridgewater Hall, which makes it perfect for a visit before or after a concert or show. The food is very good, the staff friendly and the atmosphere somewhat cosy. We can certainly recommend this place.

Great for pre theatre meal, friendly efficient staff, good Italian food with rapid service. Close to Bridgewater Hall and very economical - £12.95 for 2 courses. Booking essential in early evenings to ensure you get a table.

Arrived with no booking at 10.30pm having been turned away from close by Indian. Staff, service & food all excellent. We both ate pasta dishes & flavours were amazing!

Mediocre food and variable service. The food felt like it had been mass catered and the pre concert menu is quite limited. The ladies who served us were lovely but the welcome - we'd booked but they hadn't registered the booking - was less gracious.

My wife & I with two friends had booked to see Dreamboats & Petticoats at the Palace on a Saturday evening. We have used Gio's on numerous occasions before for the pre theatre fixed price 2 course meal. Again on this visit it didn't disappoint. Good food, good value and served quickly to ensure you have time to get to... More

Nice place and food if I little English Italian standard suits you. Portions for starters are huge, good service only personal issue is that they put 10% service charge on which I don't have a problem with as service was good, But then the credit card machine prompts you for a tip as well, that just annoys me sorry !!!...

We went here for a family meal and everything was just nice, it's nothing to go crazy about. I had the Antipasti to start with which was very good and the Calzone for a main which was ok. The prices are good and it's not too expensive. If you are looking for a pleasant Italian meal with not too much... More
