Day 132 – Gios Cafe in Sanford FL
Gios Cafe Sanford

Gios Cafe Sanford

To be honest, our plan today was to try out this new Sushi restaurant but they were closed (well, we were late, it was already getting close to 3pm). So we quickly switched our mood to Italian food and walked next door to Gio’s Cafe.

We were lucky because even though we were a bit late for the daily lunch menu we were offered dinner menu items at the lunch menu price. Sometimes the late bird catches the bigger worm… I have to say though that this was very nice of Gio’s Cafe and the service was great, too!

I was pleasantly surprised with their food. I had the Chicken Cordon Blue (see picture below) and Jose the Veal Saltinbocca, both meals were excellent. Well, as it turns out when I checked out their web site, this family owned restaurant has already won three Silver Spoon Awards.

For the curious ones, here is their menu.

    And best of all (at least for us) is that they deliver and they are always on time! It’s our favorite for pizza night and they have great desserts!

    FYI..we tried that sushi place and it was horrible! Better to just go to Amura around the corner.

    Gio’s Cafe is not only the cleanest restaurant I had ever eaten at, but the best restaurant I have ever eaten at period. I have had several items now and each and everyone has a wonderful presentation and is absolutely delightful and delicious. Seems as though they have found their niche in the community as they seem to have alot of repeat local customers enjoying the ambiance. Keep up the good work, Gio’s!!!!
