Gia's isn't fancy or formal, and it's not expensive (you can bring your own bottle). And with its bright murals and chummy, closely spaced tables, it doesn't look anything like any other Little Italy restaurant, which is part of why we like it so much. Think homey Italian food, like gnocchi and meatballs, made by someone's--alright, owner Gia Blattermann Fugate's--Sicilian mama. The online menu tells us that the zuppa di pesce is "cooked Mario Villa Santa's way" and Tom Iacoboni liked the frutta di mare "this way." We have no idea who Tom Iacoboni is. We only know he has good taste.
