My very favorite martini is called: 100 Years of Mount Gay. It's made with Mount Gay Rum, which is said to be the "rum that created rum." One is never enough!

The sound system and diverse music selections are terrific. Something for everyone. The Valentine Mix is the best.

Gio's has not only the best Italian in Bradenton on Cortez,the owners are brothers who have created an enviroment to make you always feel at home..it's actually my husband's home away from home when I'm out of town,and when we are here it's 2 daughters,under 2 and a half,and myself think of it the same way !!!!!!

Just so you know, I had 2 Italian girls ages 15 and 20 visit Sarasota for 5 weeks. They ate out ALOT! Not surprising, the best meal they say they ate was at Gio's!
