Best place in town by far
Greensboro has been waiting a long time for a restaurant like Gia's to come along.
Great relaxed cosmopolitan atmoshphere, fabulous food, friendly efficient service and reasonably priced. We love the small plate concept. There is truly something for everyone. I've tried most of the items on the menu and have loved them all. The wine list is perfect with many good choices by glass and bottle.

The food is really good but
The food is really good but very noisy so it's not the best place for having something to eat and having a great conversation.

We took my 20 year old twins, and my mother there for their birthdays. Never having been there before, did not know what to expect. Not only was the food phenomenal, but it was fun too! The way they bring the "small plates" out at different times, allows you to taste a little bit of everything without feeling overstuffed on anything! Even my 5 year old loved it, and she is a very picky eater! I will definitely be going back.... a lot!!!!

Drink, Eat, Listen...yes.
The main door is in the back, so drive around.
Appropriate motto for Gia. A nice selection of craft beers, a nice bar, fine ambiance, and music, not live, but music.
Food excellent: flat bread with spinach, goat cheese and tomatoes; flash fried artichokes; and a meat & cheese plate, all prepared quickly and presented attractively. The sauce with the artichokes was outstanding..
Service just above OK.
Owner most delightful; ambiance "hipster" and nice. A small section called the "Library" is particularly nice and more intimate.
It would be helpful if the entrance door indicated that it was the main entrance (there is another door that most everyone tries to enter through.)
Yes, we will return.

Love the atomsphere.....
Been here many times since Gia's opened and seems to be a different crowd each time. Lots of groups love to gather here, great wine list and I really like the "small plate" food offered. The musicians are an added bonus!

I had heard good things about Gia so I decided to give it a shot for a special date. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere upscale. This is a well-kept secret restaurant. We had a very nice time, expect to return again soon with friends or with a business event. Our dinner was at 6pm and it was a little quiet for such a great restuarant and space. Looking forward to next time and a little later night.

Great place to go with friends
It's a great place to meet friends at and sample different dishes with one another. The wood fired breads could have been in a little longer, but overall, the food was fantastic and service was excellent. Will definitely come again.

The food here is great, especially for groups that want to sample lots of different options.

Very enjoyable evening
This was the perfect place for our birthday celebration. We will recommend and we will be back. It is normally very hard to get a reservation, however this was a holiday weekend and we got one without a problem. I must say we did enjoy the fact that it was not crowded...which has been the case on our prior visits.

This was my third time at
This was my third time at Gia and I've enjoyed all three. This was the first time I was there on a Saturday evening to hear the music. The food was great and the service was excellent. If you want to go for a quiet conversation -- this isn't the place. It was very loud (actually too loud) for a conversation. But if you want a fun, lively atmosphere -- you need to to Gia.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was great!!! My wife and I tried many different dishes (a beauty of the small plate tapas style)...everything we got was perfect. From appetizer style dishes like the white bean crostini (amazing) to meats to flat breads this place does it right.

We took our niece and or family there to celebrate
her graduation from high school! Lots of energy.
Food was great and we had lots if fun. Loud
but still fun.
We were disappointed they were out of
the crispy eggplant. Service was just
adequate mainly because it was so busy. Waitress
was pleasant but too busy.

Great place for a special night
Gia has great food & a cool design inside. Specialty cocktails are great as well but wine list is a little pricey for Greensboro.
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had read reviews of this place which were not so favorable but decided to try it anyway late one evening. We were quite surprised and fully enjoyed the experience! The food (small plates) was bursting with flavor - we had the Chef's special Mahi and wood-roasted cauliflower... both recommended by the waiter. If cauliflower had tasted like that when I was a kid, I would have eaten a whole lot more of it than I did!
The place was full yet still quiet enought to carry on a conversation - low lighting - good ambience - a couple of tv's over the bar area to check in on the sports scene - nice background music - loud enough to hear but not so loud you couldn't talk comfortably.
We will definitely return!
6/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Just Found a GEM!
Just Moved to the Greensboro area and was looking for a nice place to have dinner with my wife, Glad I found this place! Great Beer wine and drink selection, Tapas style food! Everything we had was great!
Great Music, live Jazz band! Quiet if you want to be, Energetic if you want to be! Great experience and for sure we will be back! Good Prices too!!!
6/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were there a night that had a very large group (probably 70 people). The "library" was a bit better but still it was hectic. We had a few different servers that checked on us. One, in particular, (I think she was the manager), who was very attentive. We arrived early but our reserved table was not ready. After waiting 15 minutes after our reservation time and still not seated I was ready to leave. But we persevered and were finally seated. I think the food is good but for a half an hour wait -- go somewhere else, especially if they have a huge party. I think there are not enough variety in small plates and the menu does not vary. I also think it is expensive for what it is.
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to hang with friends!
Love Wednesday wine special, great mid-week meeting place...staff are friendly and the atmosphere is great. Also love the live music on Thursday and Saturday.

I really enjoyed my dining
I really enjoyed my dining experience at GIA. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The wine and coctail menu was great! My only complaint would be the food menu. The food tasted great, but I didn't realize before going that all the food is small plates and a la carte. I wouldn't go there if I'm really hungry. Overall I had a great time and really enjoyed the trendy atmosphere!

GIA is a great place to unwind, offering a seasonal tapa's menu that will leave you very satisfied.

Love, love, love!
Gia is a fantastic restaurant, especially if you want something different from what GSO usually offers. The food is incredible, and the wait staff are so friendly and accommodating. Everyone at our table of 7 enjoyed every minute of being there, and we will definitely visit many more times!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my second time visiting GIA. Party of 3. Our friend was here from Asheville for her 30th birthday. Took her to GIA for the food, cocktails and great atmosphere. She loved it. Posted pictures to Facebook and Instagram. Wants to come back anytime she's in greensboro. Thanks for a nice night GIA.

Gia-Drink.Eat.Listen. is Amazing!
I wanted to try something different for date night with my boyfriend. I passed by Gia's one day and was immediately intrigued by this new restaurant. I looked up the menu online. Everything sounded delicious! Plus, they had live music the night we planned to attend. I made the reservation and looked forward to going. When we arrived, the ambiance at Gia was both sophisticated and laid back. The staff was very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. We were immediately taken to our table in the library. Though there were others in the area, the table, setting, and mood made us forget about everyone around us. Our drinks, appetizers, and meal arrived promptly and were delectable! We can not wait to return to Gia.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gia was new (when we went
Gia was new (when we went in July, 2013). It was a great experience - great food, knowledgeable server, and fun drinks. Server recommended wood-smoked cauliflower - something I wouldn't have ordered - and it was great. All the food was great, including the flatbread pizzas. Very good! Had an updated "Old Fashioned"; great drink, good flavors, prepared absolutely correctly (single large ice cube, not lots of little ice). Service was great - I never filled my own water glass, pacing of food was wonderful. It's not cheap, but you're paying for fresh, real food, and a great atmosphere.

Great place for Tapas (best sharing food), also great live music on Thursdays!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I enjoy GIA for the ambiance and energy it brings to the NW of Greensboro. Finally we have an upscale restaurant in our neighborhood! I love Tapas restaurants and GIA is beginning to get this just right. Super spot for girls night out!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We order a lot of appetizers and all of them were delicious. Everything was perfect.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
First of all we had a reservation and of course we didn't make it so we called to let them know and it was not a problem! We also had a reservation for two we ended up with three and again not a problem! The staff was professional and courteous! Ahhh! Thank you!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been there twice-terrific!
It is a new restaurant with wonderful food, an upscale fun atmosphere, and great service. Both nights, it was festive with lots of action with people of all ages. We will count this as one of our Go To restaurants when company comes to visit.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tapas was the perfect dinner
Tapas was the perfect dinner for this Sunday evening dining. Our table in the library was a relaxing place to dine with friends, but my husband found the chairs too low for comfort. I avoided the high chairs because I knew we would be sitting for awhile. However we will return and try to reserve on of the few booths.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love the food here! But they desperately need to improve the wine list and the service is hit or miss.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Girls Night Out!
Great place for girls night out! Half price wine bottles on Wednesday :)

What a terrific night! Beautiful dining area, extensive wine/cocktail creations, fabulous food and a terrific staff makes Gia's one of kind in Greensboro NC.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Night out with friends...
We truly enjoy everything about this restaurant. The staff are very professional, the food is served in tapas style that leaves you very satisfied. A must stop in Greensboro...
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and our server were great! Though we had reservations (1 day ahead) we were seated at the kitchen/ bar. When we moved ourselves two times, we were asked to move two times and ended back up at the bar.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner for 4
Great food as always! A little loud, but worth it! Love the designer drink list.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great neighborhood gathering spot
We live within a 2 miles of Gia and have started taking friends there for a lighter dinner with wine and music, and everyone we have taken has loved it.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
GIA WOWED US
Great light Tapas fare with Light Live Jazz - great wine list and top grade service. Exceptional rare beers. !
Recommend flatbreads, decadent chocolate cake & eggplant! Yummy!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We really enjoyed our visit
We really enjoyed our visit on Sunday. I have dinned at Gia's many times and each time the food & service are great.
Lauren, the manager is very attentive and always greets us with a smile.

This was the third time visiting
This was the third time visiting this wine bar. It will not be our last visit. This is a real hidden gem in Greensboro. Extensive wine and craft beer list, along with some tasty cocktails, too. The small plates are above in taste and presentation than other food served in full-service restaurants. Service is top of the line.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food, service, and
Excellent food, service, and wine and craft beer list. One of the best hidden gems in Greensboro. Will continue to go there again and again and again. Wonderful place to relax, converse, and enjoy good wine and food.

Great Small Plate Restaurant
Enjoyed our dining experience at Gia's and will definitely look forward to returning there. Our seating was wonderful, one of two spots on each exterior side of the internal foyer. While normally one might think that is a mediocre spot, it is set up with large comfortable chairs and decorated with bookshelves and books as if it were a library alcove. This not only created a quieter area, buffering the sound of the restaurant in general and making it conducive to conversation, but afforded a spot for people watching as folks entered and left the restaurant. The food was great, esp. the broccoli rabe, turkey involtini, and the anchovy flatbread. The chicken lollipops, however, did not have the taste of cranberry promised in the description.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gourmet Late Night Tapas Best
Best Gourmet Salmon Tapas n Filet Mignon
Wood Fired Salmon with gourmet mushrooms
Salmon was crisp in edges n tender juicy to pallett
Consistent Tapas meals in taste and presentation
Great wines. Prosciutto asparagus is favorite
Also pan seared tuna side olives and cheese
Where can I go after 10pm and order a fantastic
gourmet meal... GIAs..Five Stars!!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service is tops.
The tapas we enjoyed were of perfect portions, and the atmosphere delightful. Had a great evening, and it wasn't hazardous to the wallet.

The "in" place in North Greensboro
Gia really has become north Greensboro's most "in" and hip place to meet for drinks or for a light meal. Thursday Jazz nights are great.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently good food & service
I went here twice in three weeks with different guests as the food was delicious; service was friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. On both occasions I found GIA to be a great value.
Sit in the front dining area if you are with friends. Sit in the rear dining area if you want a quieter, more intimate dining experience.

We have eaten here several times before but the food was excellent this visit

Love this place
Great place to meet friends for a glass of wine and a light meal. Got a peek at the new private party room and can't wait to host an event.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gia is the perfect spot
Great wine and unique cocktails, delicious small plate selection and an environment that can be lively or intimate, depending on where you choose to be seated. This has quickly become one of our favorite places to wine and dine. Two must haves for each visit: asparagus wrapped in prosciutto and white bean crostini.

GIA Delivers Again
GIA delivers again. The usual excellent food, great ambience, fine service, and of course the terrific wine list, full of good and affordable wines. Don't forget to try the limoncello dessert. One of our favorites.
