    Went on a Friday evening and there was plenty if room for our group of five. Salad and garlic bread comes with your meal. The salad is very good, fresh and light! I ordered the pollo margherita which is awesome. Others in the family ordered the steak, diavola, lemon sorrento, and parmigiana. All very good! The diavola is a bit spicy so beware. I would definitely come back here again and again! It's sooo delicious! Next time i will try the scarpiello. I hear it's really good!! Save a little room for dessert at the gelato place down the block. The tiramisu is the best i have ever had!!

    I don't eat much meat so wasn't super psyched at this choice for dinner with friends but wow! Was I wrong . This place is great. You walk in and place your order at the counter. The menu is on boards on the wall behind. Everything is chicken and every meal (I think) comes with bread and a lovely light green salad with shaved Parmesan and vinaigrette dressing. 4 of us chose the chicken in b owls: one orange, one lemon, one with the sausage and grape tomatoes and one I cannot remember . The fifth got chicken Parmesan. The chicken bowls were all filled with about a 1/4 chicken, amazing broth and seasonings with lemons and onions or etc depending on your choice. Small selection of beer or wine and soft drinks. Finish your meal at the gelateria across the street---you cannot go wrong; but you will be stuffed. In retrospect we should have split the bowls but instead , all took home 1/2 of our meals.

    I felt like I was back in the Amalfi Coast. This is the kind of restaurant/business that I apprecaite. Great food, and chill environment. The ambiance was true to what you might see in Sorrento, Positano or Amalfi, nothing fancy, chic or hipster, just clean, with the bare essentials, and with the food as their main headliner. We ordered the Sorrento Chicken and the Sorrentina Pasta. We received two very basic (but perfectly delicious starter salads with our meal orders). The chicken was succulent, drenched in a lemon zest and butter sauce, with roasted potatoes. What a dish. The pasta was al-dente, the vegetables were fresh, warm vesuvian tomatoes adroned the dish, the basil abundant. Scattered across the pasta, were small pieces of baby buffalo mozarella, drizzled in olive oil and garlic. No heavy sauces, just clean, fresh ingredients in every dish. The starter salad was an extra and yet it wasn't an afterthought, it was delicate, and really fresh, with a light dressing and slices of parmesan cheese. So many restaurants feel a need to overcompensate for crappy ingredients by adding layer upon layer of sauces and heavy creams, etc. At Gios's Chicken Amalfitano you can expect clean flavors, made with fresh ingredients and cooked to perfection. It's almost as if Gio's was saying "Hello everyone come and see how great we can cook with the most basic and simplest foods!" It really is delicious. Possibly one of the better meals I have had in Atlanta so far. There is parking. You order at the counter and the food is brought to your table. They go by the number on your receipt so make sure you keep your receipt incase they call your number and you don't know what it is. They have inside seating, and outdoor seating. The kitchen is semi-open so the customer can look inside at the chefs making Amalfitano magic. Limited vegetarian options.

    What is not to love at Gio's? One of the "go-to" restaurants in Atlanta for great fresh and delicious food, ease of getting in and out, at a price point that is down right cheap. Yes BYOB but also cold Peroni on tap in big glasses. For dessert go across the street for the best gelato in Atlanta. Only negative is parking can be tough.

    Many different chicken dishes to choose from. They are all great. You can also bring your own beer or wine. You can also bring over the pizza from next door if everyone isn't feeling chicken. A great coffee and dessert place is just across the street that is part of the same ownership.

    Authenic casual Italian restaurant. Order at the counter and servers will bring order to your table. We love the Sorrento Lemon Chicken; it is their #1 seller. Hearty portions with potatoes and salad. You can also Take-Out.

    This place has good food, great atmosphere with an industrial look. My meal (the lemon chicken)came with half chicken. Lots of parking and good customer service. FYI, it's a little pricey but if leave in this neighborhood, you are good lol. It's my weekly joint!

    The chicken is very good - you get a half and it's plenty. But... so much garlic! I reeked for 2 days! The orange is quite tasty otherwise. Panini was heavy on the bread - although the meatballs were also quite good. It isn't inexpensive - but you get a lot to eat. Now, they give you silverware and a cloth napkin - much nicer than before.

    This place is so consistently terrific. Been here 25+ times since they opened... And now living in B'HAM for last few years, I hit Gios almost every time in town. DiaVola & the Lemon Sorrento are easily our favorites; as is the Pollo Margherita . So very good, so very consistent!

    The menu is a little hard to understand but just read it ahead of time also the wait staff is very helpful with questions. Food is absolutely fantastic reminds me of quality of food I get in New York or Europe. Fast friendly service. I got a dish that said half a chicken it really had half a chicken on my plate portions are great... down the next block is the dessert stop great way to end your evening in blissful state as you sip an expresso and enjoy some of their many flavored cannolis or try the tiramisu. If you like Italian food your going to love this place!!! 😏

    Went here on a Saturday night with 6 people. Parking available on the street and a small lot across from restaurant. You walk in and stand in a short line to order your food. The choices are 3 or 4 different flavors of chicken which comes with a salad and bread. They also have a pasta dish. You find a table (sometimes you have to share a table with other people) and wait for the server to bring your food. You can bring your own bottle of wine/beer/spirits at no additional cost. My husband and I shared 2 of the chicken was lemon flavored(which they are famous for) and the other was orange flavored. To be honest I couldn't tell the difference between the 2. They were both delicious as was the salad. One of the people in our party ordered the pasta which was good. The chicken dish is large which can really feed 2 people so I would suggest ordering one chicken and one pasta. And...the price is great...$12ish per person. Fun place..

    This is a fairly spartan establishment where you order at a counter and seat yourself. The food we had was pretty good Italian, but the prices are high enough that you'd expect either extra special food or a more refined service and dining experience. Pasta and sauce were fine but not extra-specially notable. Chicken was pretty good but not appreciably better than what you can get elsewhere for less with more service. It's hard to justify the price when the food itself must only cost so much and the staffing and facilities cost must be so low. If the experience was better or the price lower, this would make 4 out of 5 for me.

    Gio's is part of a cluster of restaurants on Hemphill Avenue that act like a little Italian village. It's all Neapolitan themed because the owner is from Naples. Our party of six went early on a Saturday night to make sure we could be seated and we barely made it. You order at a counter and then the food comes out relatively quickly. First the side salads, which are large and accompany the entrees. Then the entrees, mostly chicken dishes but also a decent selection of pasta too. The quality is good, the flavors are very good and the portions are ample. Prices are relatively high but it's a good value. Parking is available if you circle around the area.

    My husband and I split the lemon chicken with extra salad and garlic bread. Dipped chicken and bread in sauce. DELISH. We then went across the street for gelato and cafe americano. Everything was so good, we wanted more but were too full. We'll go back.

    If you haven't been to Gio's Chicken Amalfitano, you are missing out. The chicken is excellent. My husband get's a spicy chicken dish, that I can't find on the web site menu currently, that is out of this world good! It's like diablo chicken or something like that. The salad is simple and delicious. I haven't had a single bad thing here. It's a rustic restaurant - you order at the counter and then find your own seat at family style tables. It is fun though. The order takers could be a little more helpful - but don't let that keep you from going because it is really great food.

    This Italian restaurant is all about chicken and chicken dominates the menu. I had the Diavola chicken, which is a little spicy. Comes with a simple but good salad, baked chicken in a spicy broth and garlic bread. The chicken was very tender, moist and tasty. Coca-Cola is served in the aluminum bottle. The restaurant is not fancy, but the food is good.

    I visited Gio's on a busy Saturday night. This is definitely canteen style dining. One queues to order from a limited chicken dominated menu (what else!). It's also byo although wine can be bought on site. It's good, wholesome Italian food. No pizzas ( they are available for the sister restaurant next door). Enjoy the hubbub and simplicity of Gio's.

    I would highly recommend this restaurant. The servings are huge and not so expensive. I love everything they have but most especially the amalfi chicken. Parking is quite challenging but just be patient because it is so worth it.

    Gio's has some of the best pasta and chicken in Atlanta. I had the spaghetti and meatballs and my wife had the Greek chicken. Both come with a small salad and garlic bread, Both portions are very large. If you eat half you have more than enough for the next day. There must have been a pound of spaghetti and two large meat balls. My wife's chicken dish must have been a whole chicken. Quick service and great food.

    Authentic Italian! Delicious food. Food quantity is a lot and worth the price. Definitely must check it out. Casual dining.
