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.
Gio’s Cafe specializes in Italian and Greek cuisine. The restaurant is located in one of the new plazas off 46 in West Sanford, right next to Lake Forest and Terracina.
