Overall Notes: If you are visiting the Tampa, Florida area, type 4805 Cortez Road West in your GPS and head over to GIO’s. On a scale of 1 to 5, the food is truly a 5+. Each time we have been there, the food has been unbelievable. One problem, the service. It’s always slow. Not terrible, not bad, just slow. Perhaps relaxed would be a better word. If you go with the thought of hanging out and savoring the night out, this is totally your kind of place. If you are in a hurry, but want great food – save Gio’s for another night.
Spaghetti Frutti di mare - Perfectly spiced with the right amount seafood and the noodles are served perfectly cooked.
Enjoy the free bread and olive oil, but don’t forget to try some of their appetizers. The mussels and calamari are both favorites of ours. You can also order a small prosciutto pizza if you have a group. Perfect!
