  • Great Italian food

    Wildwood is replete with Italian restaurants and most are passable but nothing special. Gia's is the exception. Fresh well prepared and a bit off the usual south Philly gravy track. Recommend it highly.

    Reviews of previous diners got us to try Gia. Well worth it. Great service. Good selection of different foods. We choose the Sea Bass which was done perfectly. We started with a spring mix salad. Very good. A BYOB so make sure to bring something along.

    The food, service and ambience is ALWAYS outstanding! My filet was cooked perfectly with a mushroom and frizzled onion topping that was delish! Veal Gia was tender and oh the sauce. Just yum! Franny and Luigi are the best servers and of course the hostess with the mostess Bethie!

    WE're regulars at Gia. We were surprised to find the restaurant pleasantly filled (not crowded - but a great vibe) on a cold March night. Our dinner was as it always is -- outstanding. No rush, just great food in as friendly an atmosphere as you'll find. Make this a don't miss.

    This is a GREAT little resturant for any occasion. I first tried it out when looking for a REAL ITALIAN meal for my son's rehersal dinner last fall. The Hostess waiters and chef had no idea what we were doing that night but I was THRILLED to be treated to a awesome meal not to mention the very best service! After dinner and before dessert we called the hostess over and she was thrilled that we wanted to come back for such a special night. Needless to say My son and his future bride along with 35 other guests were treated to a PERFECT night before the big day. Since that night I have sent several friends to try out Gia's and have been back a few times myself and will continue to do so!

    Nice year-round addition to Wildwood Crest. Spruced up decor with white tablecloth covered tables makes a nice change from "the usual". Menu has the standard Italian pasta, chicken, veal & seafood. Creative specials were quite good. Artichokes were outstanding and should be a standard offering. Portions are HUGE. You know you're at the Shore- ewach dish had way too much butter or oil. Service was outstanding- professional, efficient & fun. I recommend you try this restaurant.

    It's was New Year's Eve, so we expected some uneven service, but: We did not see a waiter for a half-hour after we were seated, we were asked to switch tables after we were seated for about fifteen minutes (we chose not to). Also, when ordering, we were told they had no soup, even though two were listed on the menu, and it was rather early in the evening, and we were told the same thing for one of the entrees we attempted to order. We waited almost an hour for our entrees to arrive, but when they did, the food was fantastic! The veal parmesan was tender and tasty. The flounder was fresh and prepared well. Also, in the description, it said there was a full bar, but it turned out to be BYOB. We would have brought some wine if we knew.

    Mia is a delightful person and the food was excellent! I was really impressed to find such good quality, 5-star tasting food in Wildwood. The staff was pleasant and it seemed like I was a regular eventhough this was my first time. I'm definitely going back there again, and again and again. :-)

    My husband and I had dinner here on a quiet Saturday night in November. We were happy to find a good restaurant open in the off season, and are pleased that they intend to remain open all year. This will be our go to spot during months when the island is all sealed up like a ghost town! Careful attention was paid to dietary restrictions, and the chef went out of her way to accommodate. The food was delicious, as it was at the old location.

    I have been wanting to try Gia for some time now. I finally went to the new place at 7400 Ocean Ave Wildwood and let me tell you. The food is off the charts good!!!! What a shame I have waited so long. I look for BYO places all the time because I like to bring my own wine. Most have marginal food at best or are just over priced to make up for the loss in liqour sales. At Gia I was pleasantly surprised to find that not only is the food reasonble but WOW....it's crazy good. Get the Sea Bass special. I had the special Italian Calimari and I'm talking tender!!...and taste!!! You can't imagine and I have been to my share of Italian Restaurants. If you don't know how to make Calimari then I'm gone. Needless to say I loved Gia and,I'll BE BACK!!!

    This was our first visit to the newer Crest location after having savored their food for years in Wildwood. The room looked great, the food was prepared to the same high standards, our server was a gem with a great personality and Beth, well she's the best hotess ever! My wife's good friend joined us with her boyfriend. He's a chef who has run kitchens in the Somers Point area for decades. He could not believe he was eating such a high quality meal at 8:00 in mid-October here in the Wildwoods. They want to come back. We surely will!
