A word from Gia-Drink.Eat.Listen.
The atmosphere at Gia is a 19th century modern dining room that leads to an outdoor balcony that overlooks New Garden Road. The vibrant space includes a drinking and eating bar high tables. On selected nights, live music will fill the air. The "Library"or "Parlour", are tucked away in the back of the restaurant, and are ideal for private parties, celebrations, and any type of gathering you can imagine. We offer our guests a unique menu that includes a variety of small plates that are sautéed or baked in a wood fire oven. We call our dishes "small plates" because we want all of our guests to try multiple items and share them with each other. One of our signature menu items that we offer is called "Schiacciata," which is a Sicilian flatbread. Our drink menu consists of wide array of wines, craft beers, and our interpretation of vintage cocktails.

We look forward to seeing you. Ciao!

Diner Reviews
  • "Have visited Gia 5 times. This could be a wonderful restaurant. However, servers are indifferent; night manager equally so. Food marginal. Even bartenders carry a bit of a chip on their shoulder. Will not go back and cannot recommend that others visit. Very disappointing experience. An ideal example of a place that puts your evening at risk. Left us with a bad taste in our mouth, so to speak. "

  • "Perfect size tapas and prepared wonderfully. Lots of flavor. Lots of value"

  • "What a refreshing find during market in High Point. We tried almost everything, and there wasn't a miss. Loved the pot roast, and the chutney on the cheese platter, delicious. Look forward to October !!"

  • "The setting was beautiful, but for someone who loves food, the food was lacking. There were some serious errors in food preparation such as over salting the sauteed spinach to the point where I needed water to wash it down! I like that the menu was small, daring, and available until 1:00 a.m. but I can not overlook the preparation and was disappointed. Also we arrived there late and bu 12:00 the restaurant staff was visibly ready for us to leave, while we wanted to enjoy our wine we felt rushed to leave."

  • "We heard great things about GIA so we decided to give it a try. The ambiance is great with large windows and cool decor. We enjoy the tapas/small plate format and the menu had a good variety. We tried the cheese tray, filet, asparagus/prosciutto and pretzels w/ chocolate and salt. Cheese tray was very good...the rest was good. We also had two different martinis. Overall, the food/drinks were better than many restaurants in Greensboro, but not as good as some. For what it's worth, later that night we went to 1618 Wine Bar and ordered similar drinks and dessert that were notably better."

  • "Gia gets it right with their small plate menu. We try several plates and share. The prep time works well so you don't have to order everything at once. Makes for a wonderful meal and conversation experience."

  • "This was out second trip. Food and service were absolutely great. The atmosphere were very different both times: one, a packed Saturday late night, this time a quiet Sunday. Gia pleases in either form. The staff are truly kind, attentive, and knowledgeable. Can't wait to go again!"

  • "My wife and I ate a Gia recently and were very happy with the experience. We had a cheese plate, asparagus wrapped in prosciutto, and chicken breast with spinach. I also had a light beer, and she had red wine. Everything was delicious. The waitress checked in periodically and provided excellent service. It was fun to see so many other people out as well. We did not stay for the live music but look forward to doing so."

  • "We had an awesome Valentine's Day here. We were able to get a last minute reservation that afternoon. I got the Valentine's special with wine and it was all excellent. My husband got several items from the menu and they were also great. My husband would normally not try anything other than normal steak but he was pleasantly surprised. We will definitely go back. Thanks for a great night!"

  • "Took an early reservation on Thursday (4:30) . Wanted to catch up with an old friend .. . Asked for a quiet table where we could chat and catch up. Had a WONDERFUL time . . felt like we were the main focus of there service. Owner met us . . server was "on point" without hovering . . . food & drinks were GREAT ~~~"

  • "This is my second time back to Gia. I loved it when the first time I am there. There were 6 of us there so It was a little harder to order the right amount of food for the 6 of us since all the plates are tapas style. Our waitress that night was terrible. She never brought back anything we asked and sometimes disappeared for a very long time so we will go a long time without drinks or or food. I will go back but hope not to have this waitress again"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Outstandingly short menu, yet everything was exceptional! Each item was meticulously created and served with finite detail. However, each portion was only three to five ounces with an average cost of ten dollars. A great find when you don't mind throwing some real money down for great cuisine."

  • "EXCELLENT food and service!! We will return MANY, MANY times!!"

  • "Love this spot. It's hard to find a place that has great food and awesome drinks, but they exceed the expectation. Each room brings a different experience. Our friends were impressed."

  • "This is the 5th or 6th time we have been to this restaurant and we will continue to frequent it. It is close to our house, has good food and friendly service. Just an all-around enjoyable experience. And it is nice to know that many of our friends have also discovered it and love it."

  • "Love this place...perfect service. Quiet rooms or more lively bar area."

  • "We reviewed the menu prior to dining and was aware the servings/portions were small, but we also ordered a couple appetizers and along with the meal was all we wanted. Prices were matched well with dishes. I was prepared for a noisy experience, but it wasn't too bad. I had salmon and wife had filet, both dishes were outstanding. The presentation was nice. The view from out table out to New Garden was nice. We will go back. I would recommend GIA for your next dining experience. Glad we found it."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Loved the concept, the atmosphere, & the quality. However, very disappointed in the price of the food for the amount served. Will not eat dinner there again. Great place just for drinks & appetizers but not for dinner. Left feeling hungry but wasn't willing to spend more to get another plate."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "We had a great time and the food was very good. Our server didn't check on us very often, but I think she was busy. Also, the dessert took an unusually long time to come, longer than it took our entrees. But overall, it was fine. It was our 1 yr anniversary and we love the place and the atmosphere. Good stuff."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "I was on business and traveling alone so I sat at the bar. There was no live music as I had hoped but the music playing was that of a swanky upscale lounge and was not too overbearing. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the tapas plates were well portioned."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "We took our friends to Gia. It was their first time. They had a great time. Food was delicious. We like the small plates, helps us stay on our diet and still eat out. Half price wine bottles on Wednesday was a welcome surprise"
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "This was our second visit this year, and once again we were pleased with the drinks, the service, the food, and the atmosphere. We had a great time. We will be back!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "It was great fun. We all enjoyed sharing the small plates and the food was very good. At first the music was loud but we settled in and it was good background music."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Gia is a nice place for tapa-like dishes, althought perhaps slighly smaller servings at a reduced price would ultimately lead to more revenue as we would have liked to have tried a few more dishes, but the prices prevented same. Also we had an issue with how the menu described the food as opposed to what we received. "Wrapped in Proscuitto" would indicate that this wonderful ham is on the outside of the dish, when if fact only a very few thin slices are rolled up on the inside of their turkey dish. The food was very good, but deceiving nonetheless. I did really like their "Library" seating although we were not invited to sit there despite availability. If you want a private, intimate setting request these tables."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I went here for Valentine's Day and I think the ambiance of the restaurant fit perfectly. It was romantic and also the first time we had tried a tapas restaurant. The food was delicious, we ordered a arugula and prosciutto flat bread and a small plate of sliders. Both were great, although a bit small, it was enough to be filling, but the flat bread took a long time to get to us. This restaurant is definitely worth a return visit, although it was a touch expensive for the food we got. I think the only truly disappointing part was that live music was supposed to be playing, but there was none to be found (perhaps we were there too early)"

  • "Went to Gia's on Valentines' night, which can be a crazy night for the better restaurants. They were prepared for the numbers, food and service were spot on!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We tried Gia's for Valentine's Day and we really enjoyed it. The portions were the right size for small plates and there was a nice variety on the menu. The starter plate of meats and cheeses was our favorite."

  • "I highly recommend this place for a fun night out with friends. Good food, good service and great music with an upscale, big-city atmosphere."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "I HAVE BEEN TO GIA'S SEVERAL TIMES AND AM ALWAYS HAPPY TO TAKE A NEW FRIEND TO EXPERIENCE IT. THIS WAS NO DIFFERENT...I LOVE THE CONCEPT AND CAN NEVER PICK A FAVORITE FOOD - EVERYTHING IS SO GOOD. THE STAFF GENUINELY WELCOMES EVERYONE AND IS HAPPY TO HAVE THEIR VISITORS AT GIA'S."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Restaurant contacted me the day of our reservation to discuss / confirm table options for that evening, nice touch! Food, Service, and music were all incredible...great wine list too! After visiting GIa back prior to the holidays for the first time we thought we'd get out ahead of the curve and celebrate Valentine's Day a week earlier...fantastic experience...we'll definitely return!"

  • "Don't let the "strip mall" location of Gia be a turn off. This place is fun, delicious, healthy, well-priced. Service is always friendly and efficient and the place has a special energy and ambience. Half price wines on Wednesday are a bargain."

  • "I am so pleased with our recent visit to Gia. We originally planned on a rather large group for a friend's birthday dinner. The staff were so helpful in preparing for our arrival. They emailed me sample menus and made suggestions of ways to make our gathering extra special. Unfortunately, we had several partygoers come down with flu, so our numbers dwindled from 16 to 10; then down to 6. The staff was very accommodating. The food was delicious and we will definitely return again soon."

  • "My husband and I went out for date night. We had never been to Gia's but enjoy tappas. Everything was delicious. Our service was fantastic. The music and atmosphere was fun. We will most definitely go back!"

  • "I found Gia's to be a nice, quiet and elegant place to dine. I felt a little under dressed but quickly just relaxed and enjoyed the food and company I was with. Staff was very accomodating and answered questions that we had a out the food we ordered. Thanks for a great time and I will be back."
