We visited Gio while staying in Areyns de Mar. The restaurant is located right in the harbour. We sat outside in the covered outside area. We were a party of eight, including four children. The restaurant doesn't offer a kids menu, but are happy to...do a meal between two kids. For us it ended up being a bit pricey compared to some of the other restaurants in the area we tried. We ordered a selection of Pizza's, Pasta and a calamari to start (which was lovely!). The Pizza's in particular were great and cooked in a pizza oven on site. If you are looking for a good Pizza I'd recommend, and happily return.More

Great pizza and really lovely calamari to start! Home made tiramisu too! Good service. One of our more expensive lunches as no children’s menu as us such... but still worth a visit!

We had a nice table on the terrace, which wasn’t difficult as there were not to many people eating. Lovely views over the harbour, our waitress was very attentive, two of us had pizza and then three had pasta dishes, mine was actually very nice,...and the pizzas looked ok, however the calzone has to go back because it was cold inside.. my one querie was that they didn’t know what brucetta was ! And the chef said we were confused with porcetta ... no we wanted the very typical Italian bread with lovely tomatoes ... anyway we had a nice evening but wouldn’t rush back, it was also a bit pricey for what we had ( only my opinion !!)More

Food is great. A wide birth if choices of the Italian cuisine and freshly catched seafood from the local docks. The staff is very skilled and the prices are ok.

This restaurant used to be great. Went on Sunday evening with some friends to celebrate a birthday party. We got a table outside and the place was not so crowded. We asked if they had gluten free pizzas and were told that they did not...know - if you are Celiac don't even bother ! Food was meh and expensive compared to the alternatives in the area. The service was bad. We had to remind the waitress 3 times we had ordered sparkling water and we had to get in to get waitstaff to pay the bill. The owner - an Italian lady - kept smoking outside in the terrace as she walked around. Overall a mediocre and pretentious place. Not going back.More

This restaurant was a great surprise! The food was fabulous,amazing pasta and delicious shellfish. A varied menu to suit every pocket with authentic deserts to make your mouth water. The pizza is the best for miles around. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who...wants value for money and enjoys good Italian food.More

Gios moved to Arenys port and it's even better than before! There's now no problem finding parking, view is fantastic, more tables and quality is still SUPERB. All dishes ( salads, pizza and pasta) are big so anybody with a good appetite will be satisfied....Ask Ricardo to recommend a bottle of wine!! They have a very good selection Dishes recommeded: linguine with lobster, spaghetti with shrimps, all pizzas. Lemon tiramisu made by chefs at the gios kitchen was delicious. A memorable meal and wonderful experience. I recommend that you make reservations 24 -48 hrs in advance because the restaurant does fill up quickly. Hopefully the first floor will open soon to increase capacity. Keep up the good work!!More
