Excellent, what's neat about Gioia is that sometimes you get the entire dining room to yourself, and this was the case the last 2 times. Course that being said the season was over. In any case, the food, the service, the ambiance is all just delightful. The only negative I can give is the escargot needs to be cleaned a little better, both times we had them they were a little to gritty. Otherwise their pasta dishes, penne alla vodka, light and tasty, spaghetti Napoli, the black olives give a nice salty but savory taste, and the specials they have are always good, they change so really can't give you definite one.
All in all we highly recommend Gioia restaurant for great food good service, and an all around nice evening.
