Welcome to Gio's! We hope to serve you soon! Please mention your gift certificate to our wait staff when you arrive. Bistros personal and creatives sides, about the restaurant 2001. Theres a big-city feel to a little Italian restaurant tucked away in a shopping center at N. Dale Mabry Highway and Waters avenue. We wanted to be different from other restaurants, said Maria Teresa Calderon. So it is. From the waiters and chefs, who have been with Gios almost since it opened 10 years ago. For all that , we went to well-hidden, nondescript but deserving little restaurant called Gios in Tampa. It provided the right selections, delicious food and good services. Add some nice touches such as waiters in black and white uniforms, rows of wine bottles and photos of Sophia Loren on the walls and you have a well- done standard. Named after the Calderons younger son, Giovanni, Gios has slowly built its clientele so that reservations are a good idea, especially on weekends. Thats when Ugo DeAmbriogo plays piano and patrons sometimes spill out of the restaurant small vestibule and onto the sidewalk. I mention Gios is easily missed Heres why: Its tucked in an already well hidden shopping center at the corner of Waters Avenue and DaleMabry High way. You could drive past 100 times and not spot the place. But Gio's is worth finding.
