Food was some of the worst Italian we've ever had. My husband had POLLO ALLA GRIGLIA which was supposed to be grilled chicken in a lemon caper sauce. He got a very dry chicken breast with a plate full of very ordinary French fries for $34.
I had RAVIOLI SPINACI E RICOTTA which was undoubtedly the worst pasta I have ever had. It came swimming in a liquid that was clear and tasted like luke-warm water. I have had similar ravioli many times before and it never had so little flavour.
Even the Tiramisu did not taste fresh. We paid about $400 for a meal for 5 which was all-round very disappointing. The only thing we enjoyed was the wine that Gio's did not cook!

Très bon restaurant avec un excellent service aux tables. Notre serveuse était très attentionnée, elle remplissait nos verres à vin et eau constamment, nous avons jamais touché la bouteille. La pizza est leur spécialité et elle est vraiment bonne. Situé en plein cœur de la Place Jacques Cartier au vieux port. J’y retournerai assurément.

It was a rough day for the staff. Something must have happened with the staff, everyone was stressed, food wasn’t coming out of the kitchen, servers and the manager were yelling, people were gossiping, the overall ambience and vibe of the restaurant was expected to be high class and fancy, but upon entering with a reservation and having to wait up to ten minutes to get seated we quickly realized how underprepared it felt. Some food was good, others felt like it came out of a frozen box without seasoning. Although our waitress was incredible, we felt unwelcome and eager to leave.

Great place but our reservation was not communicated well with the hostess when we arrived. I ordered something that was not available so that was a bit disappointing.
What I did order was delicious.

They had good pasta, gluten free pasta as well. Service was a little slow though and for two plates of regular pasta it was 70-80 bucks. No drinks nothing which is a little pricey

Il faudrait retirer la mention 'recommandé' à votre salade césar parce qu'elle n'était vraiment rien d'impressionnant.

La pizza était EXCELLENTE!

Vos prix sont top élevés selon nous!
