I would recommend this restaurant for it's location. It offers 10% discount if going to the movies next door but the Waiter did not offer even though he knew we were going. The pizza was fabulous but my "Dirty Martini" was not dirty and the vodka seemed watered down. Our waiter was pleasant but seemed distracted, never corrected the drink and we never got the vinegar to go with the oil. Seeing that this is suppose to be a Martini Bar, I was expecting a fabulous "Dirty Martini". I was disappointed.

Come to Florida every winter and go to Gios almost every Friday. Most of the time we have pizza which is delicious and you have many choices of pizza and toppings.

Very fun, enjoyable evening there. Our waitress, Alexa, was amazing, Fun and quick. She remembered all our 8 names with ease. Great service. The pizza is always super. Steak was good and perfectly cooked. My only complaint is the lack of gluten free pizza crust. They do have gluten free pasta.

Sign outside said Happy Hour but there were no beer specials of any kind, only 2/1 Martinis. The pizza was excellent, thin crust,not greasy. Need pepper on all the tables.
