This was the first time trying Gio's. The food and atmosphere was nice. Food was good and priced just right. I did find menu to be a little limited but would go again.

The best Italian food on the Grand Strand! Excellent salads, chicken, fish, veal and pasta dishes. Great servers too. The menu tends to favor Northern Italian recipes with lighter, delicate sauces.

Small, intimate dining experience. Perfect date night or for a small group. Dinners are reasonably priced and delicious especially the seafood pastas. Pizza is thin crusted and perfectly baked. Dining room staff is well trained and very professional.
