We had attended the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce mixer at Prairie Life Fitness in Cool Springs. Afterwards Laurel recommended a visit to Uncle Gio's and what a good choice she made. The four of us walk in the front door and meet Gio immediately. We were escorted over to the bar area to enjoy some wine and to have the chance to talk and get to know Giovanni a bit. Shane the bartender/server/nephew recommended the Frutti Di Mare with a red sauce and he was right, it was absolutely delicious. The servings were huge and plenty of meat and just the right amount of sauce which I appreciated so very much.
The wine was flowing, we had a feast on the table of this great Italian food and the conversations were delightful and boisterous. We started off with a good table chianti and after one glass of that we started into the Innocento which was superb and like velvet shimmering over my tastebuds. It was wonderful alone but it was also a perfect compliment for our food.

Thanks Gio and don't worry, we will be back and we will make sure all of our friends know you are there.
Frutti Di Mare is a seafood platter, Italian style, with Mussels, Shrimp, Scallops and Calamari served over a bed of Linguini and red clam sauce.
