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.

I'd be here weekly if my budget allowed me to eat out! Classic. Delicious BYOB Italian.

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.
