The sudden onset of hunger pains is the leading cause of unfinished novels, canceled duels, and tied soccer matches. Today's Groupon employs delicious Italian cuisine to cut down on unfinished business: for $12, you get $25 worth of made-to-order Italian fare and drinks at Gio's Italian Restaurant on West Waters Avenue.

Gio's expansive menu features a plethora of pasta and a range of rustic entrees. Entrance tongues with chicken marsala ($14.95) or filetto al pepenero ($19.95), two 4-ounce filet mignons sautéed in flaming brandy by an eyebrow-less sous chef. Taste tubular penne topped with vodka sauce ($15.15) or enjoy the irony of losing loose-fitting neckwear in a bowl of bow-tie pasta with bolognese ($12.95). Gio's carries house wine by the glass ($6.50) as well as a vast selection of bottled wine. Although Gio's is tucked demurely in a strip mall, the restaurant garners rave reviews online and treats diners to standout amenities such as live piano music on weekends and live waiters daily.


The Tampa Tribune featured Gio’s Italian Restaurant and 70% of Urbanspooners recommend it. Four Citysearchers give the restaurant an average of 4.5 stars and three Google Mappers give it a perfect five-star rating:

Gio's Italian Restaurant

Black-and-white portraits of Sophia Loren stare down at diners as sunlight bounces off the mirrors lining one wall of Gio's Italian Restaurant. After inspecting wine bottles lined up against the wall or arm-wrestling a date to determine who gets the tallest chair, guests can dig into sautéed fish or chicken, fresh salads, or Italian classics such as penne alla vodka.
