Dined here with friends who live in the area. Very nice menu allowing for everything from pizza to full course dinner. Service was efficient and friendly. Portions are well-sized - plenty to eat but not overwhelming. Atmosphere is nice also .

excellent Italian food. top quality scallop and fish dishes. i wish i didnt have to report a few knocks - happy hour drink prices not extended to dining area rather available only in the bar. salad was just a bit of lettuce with balsamic dressing - a bit of imagination is needed.

We regularly order take out pizza from Geos. It's got a terrific crust. Great variety of toppings. Our favorites are the pepperoni and also the Tribeca. Delicious!

We had really good osso buco and eggplant Parmigiana with good bread, quick and friendly service, good value wine from a nice list, and a good price for a beach place. I will be a regular at Gio's.

The service was great. Loved everything... More
