Loved the stuffed peppadew peppers, and the watermelon spritzer!
Great Atmosphere/ Vibe, Good food and good drinks.
Cute venue with some great food, true the little appetizer peppers! Acoustic music sometimes during happy hour
Great place to grab food/beer and wtach sports...particularly if you are into futball! :-)
A full selection of Italian drinks. It seems like a great place to learn about Amari and Vermouth. The pizza was yummy
Great service and tasty food. There is a very innovative mixologist who can make yummy cocktails with or without alcohol.
Delicious drinks and awesome Pizza, killer combo. The place is drastically transformed from the old dated Giovanni's into a fun and social ambiance.
Fantastic drink and food program at a wonderfully charming Berkeley location. I can't wait to go back again to try some more dishes and drinks I didn't get to try on my first visit.

I really loved the ambiance, the meal was simple and delicious, and great to take kids, they really enjoy the Bocce field nearby, although the adults were playing Bocce too.
Last minute we chose to have our First Command Christmas Party here. Food was great, drinks were great, atmosphere was lively and absolutely wonderful.
Great food, particularly the cucumber salad, linguine with clams and pizza. Specialty drinks are interesting - particularly liked the Palazzo - and bartender is great. Love the mural behind the bar, and the big open windows to the street. Great for just hanging out with friends. More...
Checked out Gio's during the soft opening. Really cool place! It was fun to try the vermouth and amari cocktails, and the pizza was super good too. Perfect location and great vibe. I'll definitely be back! More...
I like the atmosphere of this place very much. I sat in the back. The tables are not cramped together, one on top of another. You can tell right away that they put some thought and spacing into the layout which creates a very good refreshing feeling. It is not claustrophobic at all. Another thing that I really liked was that they bring you a carafe of water and an actual small water drinking glass versus those gigantic oversized pint glasses most restaurants give you , just so you don't bug them so much for refills. I thought that was a nice touch and combines perfectly with the spatial feel the restaurant has. I had the Pizza and a Cola. Which were excellent !!! It was so good , I didn't wait for it to cool off and burnt the roof of my mouth. I will be back , as I found Gio's Pizza and Bocce to be offering a very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere combined with good food and a friendly staff. More...
They had me come and perform some acoustic music for a packed happy hour and sent me home with delicious food. The management and staff were super nice and overall the place has a great vibe.
I'm originally from NJ - I've got some deep *opinions* about pizza. The pizza here is fantastic. I'm hooked.
The cocktail menu is a thing of beauty - so many layers of flavors. The ones we tried were a real feast - beautiful, redolent, and delicious.
Excellent food, wonderful team, well-crafted atmosphere. Dinner felt like a vacation. Definitely coming back. More...
I LOVE this place. Highly recommend. And they have Live music!!
Really enjoyed our visit during the soft opening. I've never really tried vermouth before, but the Cocchi Americano Rosa they recommended was excellent! All the food was great; my daughter loved the fettucine alfredo and the mushroom/sausage pizza was fantastic. I remember the place when it was Giovanni's and it was dark and crowded and uninviting. Gio's is open and airy, and the indoor bocce court means the kids can play while we eat. We'll definitely be back! More...
This place was open for the Warriors game last night. One man was serving and he was great!
The food was delicious and I’d recommend the pineapple beer! I’ll be going back for sure!
