Why We Chose an Open Flame Fire Deck Oven

Why We Chose an Open Flame Fire Deck Oven

Hot, hot, hot! That’s what our open flame oven is. And that’s what makes Gio’s pizza taste like what you’d find in Italy. We follow the Italian tradition of great pizza making.

We make our dough from “00” flour, which is milled specifically to cook at the high temperatures of our authentic Italia[...]

If you were very lucky, she may have let you help make the meatballs! That is if you grew up in an Italian fa[...]

There are a lot of reasons to love our patio; abundant sunshine, fresh air, great food, and how about the towers of fresh basil? Every summer, we take advantage of the warm weather to grow as much of this staple of Italian cuisine as we can. A few years ago, we found the perfect way to cultivate our crop; The Tower Garden. This wonder of hydroponics allows us to plant many plants in a relativel[...]
