Welcome to Gio's Ristorante & Bar located in the heart of beautiful downtown St. Louis in the Gateway One Building. Gio's cozy dining room offers one of downtown's most spectacular views. Our large outdoor bar & patio are perfect for game days. Bar Gio, with its contemporary decor and brick pizza oven is the ideal place to sit back and relax. Gio's is conveniently located just minutes away from most downtown venues and 2 blocks from Busch Stadium.

The kitchen at Gio's is quickly becoming known for serving some of the city's finest Italian cuisine. The menu features a variety of pasta, seafood, steaks and specialty entrees, all at affordable prices. It only tastes expensive! Bar Gio offers a lighter fare of house made brick-oven pizzas, panini sandwiches and traditional pub grub.

Service is polished casual and family friendly. Gio's is the perfect spot for an important business meeting, a romantic dinner or a get together with friends.

Lovely place, good food, great prices...we had requested a quiet table, so our server, Britany(?) put us alone in an overflow room and gave us fantastic service!
We would highly recommend this place.

Very poor service. Waited 1 hour and 20 minutes for food to be delivered to the table before telling the waiter we were leaving and cancel the order. People who were seated after us received their food and left before u. We never received our order. Just bread a one salad and an appetizer.

We made pre-game reservations. Our drive was > 3 hours but we left early enough that we were going to be an hour earlier than expected. I called and the graciously changed us. When we arrived, there were signs up saying they were closed for a private event. I was concerned we were in the wrong spot, but when I asked, they said, "Oh no, we were expecting you." We were seated away from the large group (who arrived a little bit later). Our server, Mikayla, was great and we took the internet's advice and got the gooey butter cake. I suggest you do too! It was a great pre-game meal and we will be back in the future.

We dined at this establishment for downtown STL restaurant week. It was out first time eating here. We definitely enjoyed the food. The entrée portions were a little small, but made up for it with the dessert portions. Love the gooey butter dessert !!! Our server (Michaela) was very personable and attentive. Thanks for a great evening !

We stopped by for Downtown Restaurant Week. The 3 corse meal options were fantastic. For 25 dollars a head it was more ham enough food. The Grouper and Gooey Butter Cake were outstanding. I will be coming back.
