    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.

    The service was very slow took 45 minutes just to get our drinks. The food was below average especially for the price you pay. 3 of the 4 at our table ordered a pasta dish and we didn't even get bread to go with it. The noise was just too loud. I went with my wife and 2 daughters and we can barely speak to each other as the music was too loud which made everyone in the restaurant have to speak very loud. I would not recommend this restaurant at all, very bad experience.

    My friends and I visited Montreal for a weekend and spontaneously ended up at Trattoria Gio. The location is great - we sat inside and the ambience was fun and lively, but the outdoor seating looks fun too. The food was awesome. We shared the focaccia bread appetizer. It came looking like pizza but was light and a great starter. I had the Penne Rose, which was creamy and delicious. Would recommend to anybody visiting!

    The absolute worse restaurant ever!!! After 20 minutes that sat down they came to take my order(wasn't busy) then 15nmins later they come to ask me my order again. The table next to me was full of dirty dishes. I got no glass of water. They came to ask me what was my drink that I had order 30mins earlier....I just left without ever getting any

    Wonderful way to start our Montreal vacation! We were turned away from several restaurants in the neighborhood due to not having reservations (our mistake, not knowing how big of an impact F1 race weekend would have in the local restaurant industry). Trattoria Gio had a reservation available after a quick consult of Open Table. We were promptly seated and service was speedy. We enjoyed the zucchini appetizer, which was fantastic! Sauce was flavorful, which we also enjoyed on our Margherita pizza. The pizza also had amazing fresh flavors, including the best mozzarella I've had in a while. We had a great time people watching from our outdoor table and soaking in the atmosphere. Thanks for the perfect end to our first night in Montreal!

    This was an excellent choice for dinner. The waitress was exceptional and very helpful w making selections. The wine she recommended was delicious. The food was very good. The Ceasar salad had a bit too much dressing for my taste but it was very nicely done. The pizza was very nicely done w lots of topping.
