The restaurant has no menu but serves an Italian anti-pasta, pasta and main dish for about 39euro. You can choose between 2 options for the pasta and main dish. Great real Italian style food!

This place was one of the best meals we have had. Clearly a family run business where all help to serve the table. You are never given a menu, simply asked if you want fish, meat, or chicken. You get accoutrements galore and everything was...More

It's iconic and one of the best known restaurants in Maastricht. Yes, Gio's is authentic and genuine. The 'menu' is simple (choose between 2 pastas and 3 main dishes - the Ossenhaas is terrific) and you will be fed for the entire evening. Staff is...More
