* Gio’s Restaurant

Restaurant critic Morris Bishop is on a roll checking out all the local restaurants in town. This week he reviews Gio’s restaurant. Check out what he has to say about this eatery:

”This is one of those eateries that ‘opens early, closes late’ and serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between.

They seat some 30 inside and 50 on the terrace, plus a pleasant lounge/bar area.

Open for about 4 years, the owner, Giovanni devised a special menu for the CD offer that reflected the budget element of the deal, but having had sight of their extensive normal menu, it certainly would be a rarity not to find something to please.” Click here to read more…
