    More misses than hits for our dinner date. Olives and focaccia to start were okay. Broccolini was served warmish and the aioli underneath became watery. Spaghetti dish was good but Celeric Steak was very disappointing. Not much flavour. Lemon curd had a nice tart taste to it but chocolate bandino was almost slimy in texture and had a bitter aftertaste. $200 for 3 drinks, apps, mains, and desserts.

    Everything about our experience was top notch-amazing food, friendly and attentive service. The one unfortunate thing that happened was the waiter offered us the lemon curd dessert and when we asked if it was vegan, he said yes - but it wasn’t. My daughter has been vegan for 3 years and eating the dairy in this dessert upset her stomach.

    I was really pleasantly surprised and my delicious meal. I am a full on very proud carnivore and I was very satisfied. I wanted to explore my options and had heard good things about GIA and the reviews did not disappoint. I highly suggest trying this restaurant. The food was delicious, the service was very good and the cocktails are unique and yummy. It has a high energy and they aim to please. They are also great about complying with any food allergies or preferences. Go book today, I will be going back. Try the agnolotti!

    Although we reserved for GIA When I looked at the menu it wasn't what I saw online: much smaller, fewer choices. I was told by the server GIA IS CLOSED SUNDAY and a different menu for a sister restaurant was available VERY DISAPPOINTED as this was to be a birthday celebration How can GIA make reservations for Sundays when it is closed

    As a meat eater, i was amazed by the flavors. I never expected to enjoy vegan food so much. All the dishes were subtle and the flavors were incredible. Big thanks to our server as well who was so warm and attentive. And must not forget the cocktails. They are a little pricey but definitely worth every bit of it.

    Second time in one week I’ve had the pleasure of eating here. Everything is lovely. Service is gracious even as they’re managing two sittings. The previous time I had the plant based mushroom filled pasta and it was heaven on a plate. I was sorry to see they have removed this dish from the menu and replaced it with a spaghetti with the same ingredients. It was good (of course I ordered it. I love mushrooms) but it don’t have the same magic as the filled pasta from the previous menu. This is simply feedback as our waitress also asked for my thoughts on the change. A lovely space. A little tight through the bar entrance way if you’re angsty about traffic RN.

    Service, apps and salad were good but all the mains and drinks were so disappointing we ended up not finishing them even when we split three mains across 5 people. Not sure if it was an off night, I had the lasagna from ufficio last year and thought it was incredible so im not sure what happened.

    This is my second time here in a month and I can’t wait to come back again. The pasta dishes are outstanding and the crab cakes just amazing. Best vegan /vegetarian food I have eaten yet. Brought my boss here and she was drooling over the dishes we had. Will definitely be one of my regular and favourite places to eat.
