From the street, Gio’s looks like any other Chicago corner store. But this is Bridgeport, and Gio’s packs a restaurant plus an array of imported Italian groceries into the tiny space. The food is unspectacular (though the arancino is a nicely fried risotto ball packed with meat sauce and peas), but the cast of characters kept us amused. Our waitress did everything short of pulling up a chair to make us feel at home, and we love the frozen lemon flute, a tart limoncello-and-cream concoction.

My very favorite restaurant. We celebrate every special occasion at Gio's. The food is excellent ant the staff make you feel like family.
Gio's is the best! If I order off of the menu, I love the Chicken Vesuvio, Tortiglioni Carbonara and the Mona Lisa Salad. The specials never disappoint. Each dish is perfectly prepared and beautifully executed. The old-school Italian diner vibe is nice for dates or groups and it's also a BYOB.
