    Our waitress was very attentive and made sure we received everything we asked for and more. Gio the owner came to our table and we spoke of Italy and the town he s from which happens to be my father in laws town in Campobasso. I mentioned to him if he served rabbit but said he did not. After some time we talked about possibly having rabbit this week during our stay. Great guy!! Hope to see him again. grazi Gio!!

    Overall liked the ambiance - sat outside where there were a few other tables to enjoy the warmer fall weather. Took ten minutes before a waiter came over to ask for our drink orders and since it took so long to get someone’s attention we put our entire order in. Started with the bruschetta which was underwhelming - not that impressed for $12 and we each had a pasta dish that lacked flavor and something we easily could’ve made at home. Not worth it for $24/plate. When we did have a waiter he was friendly and helpful but this place isn’t somewhere I’d visit again or recommend.

    The food was absolutely delicious and the waiter was wonderful. I wish we got his name...he went over and above to make our night special. It was my birthday and he brought us four small glasses of Limoncello for us to celebrate the end of the meal. Very classy touch!!

    I'm conflicted bc the food COULD have been good but it was missing some serious substance. The service COULD have been good but was seriously lacking. Our server was really nice but not once during our main course did she follow up to see how it was or even bother filling up our water glasses. We literally got our water glasses filled up while we were paying our bill. Add on to the fact that everyone was wearing their jackets in the dining room bc it was so cold... I wouldn't recommend to anyone that was relying on me for an honest opinion

    We enjoyed dinner at Trattoria Gio. We were at first disappointed that our request for an outdoor table via OpenTable app was not possible, or we’d have to wait an additional hour. We were about 20 minutes early for our 8:30 pm reservation so we enjoyed a drink at the small bar inside. The Bartender was friendly and personable and the four of us enjoyed chatting with him. We were given a table promptly at 8:30 in the front center of the restaurant inside. It was not loud and we enjoyed our time there. Our server was nice and professional but not friendly. My pizza was very good, my husband enjoyed the lasagna. Not sure what the others ate. The interior is nicely decorated. There were people dressed up and also more casual in nice shorts.

    Food was ok. They were understaffed and it was a summer evening, so understandably busy on the patio. We ate inside and there was lots of space. Our drinks didn’t come until after our food. We could see them sitting at the bar and had to flag our waiter over to ask for them. Our daughter ordered dessert and the bill came before it. Overall, service was not great. Our most expense meal in Montreal but definitely food and service level was not what it should be for the price. It’s in a touristy square, so we were not surprised that this was our experience.

    One of the worst experiences I have had so far post-pandemic opening. I find all restaurants are coming up short in some ways but this one was pretty disappointing given it was in the heart of the Old Port on Place Jaques Cartier. A real tourist trap in the Old Port. Food Meals came out dry (pizza, lasagna) and were nothing unique, the steak was undercooked, the rapini way too salty/oily and the lobster ravioli tasted like it came from a bag...sorry. Service Did not get served the wine before the meal, came after. The utensils came after the food was set. Water never refilled and we were never asked if we wanted dessert. Ambiance was fine.

    Our server was very sweet and helpful. Except for her spiciness level differing, her recommendations were great. The food and ambience were wonderful! The Arancini was to die for! The Pesto Rose was lovely with the added vegetables and burrito was yummy. My companion's meal was a little spicy, but she enjoyed it with the added sausage. I can't wait to visit again...

    Nous avions réservé une semaine avant pour un samedi soir car nous savions que ce serait achalandé (Cirque du soleil, feux d’artifices). Malgré notre réservation nous avons du attendre en file. Nous sommes allés les aviser de notre réservation et que nous étions arrivés mais on nous a avisé que quelqu’un passerait dans la file pour vérifier qui avait des réservations donc on a dû retourner faire la file. Plusieurs personnes sont entrés avant nous sans avoir réservé. Donc au final pour nous cela n’a rien donné de prendre le temps de réserver. Pour le service nous avons dû demander à plusieurs reprises pour avoir de l’eau, sel et poivre. La nourriture est correct mais aucun wow. Nous avons mangé entrées, assiettes de pâtes et l’assiette de saumon. Serveurs et serveuses sympathiques. Nous ne reviendrons pas. Points positifs: la terrasse et le resto est bien situé.
