Over 30 years of experience

Gizio Recreation & Banquet Centre began as a non-profit social club for a community of Italian Canadians from a town in Abruzzo called Pettorano sul Gizio. The property was acquired by the Pettoranesi over 30 years ago and was owned by forty-nine shareholders. In the early nineties a banquet hall was built and attached to the existing house on the property but as the community moved further away from the location the club lost its patronage.

Hidden gem!We had our wedding at Gizio last weekend and it was wonderful!! Mirela was great - she helped us every step of the way and was always available for questions and anything else we needed over this past year throughout the planning process. The venue has a beautiful outdoor space that is perfect for pictures and the indoor space had everything we needed and more! The food was delicious and the service was amazing 🙂 Would highly recommend this venue for weddings or any other special event!Mandy

What a pleasant surprise! Just up on the Niagara Escarpment, a short drive up from Grimsby Main Street, Gizio is a hidden gem! It offers two levels of dining spaces and more! I enjoyed our Grimsby & District Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting there yesterday! Great space. Great food! ?

Had our wedding there it was a great location could not beat the price and the staff and owners are amazing. Mirella was so helpful for every step of it. Food was amazing and it was nice having the whole wedding at the same venue. Gorgeous property for photos as well could not have had a nicer place. Every guest loved the entire experience and we had an amazing day!

Recently attended a wedding here and I must say the venue is absolutely amazing. Very beautiful and welcoming environment as well as friendly, accommodating staff. The food was also tremendous, 5/5. Fantastic experience. I was so impressed that I would recommend to anyone booking ANY type of party.

My Husband and I were recently married and had our reception at the Gizio club. There are not enough words to express how happy we were about our special day.Mirella, from the very beginning, was fantastic! She really listened to our vision and made it come to life. She was so easy to work with and very accommodating.The venue itself is just breathtaking. Inside and out, is absolutely gorgeous.The food was INCREDIBLE! My guests are still talking about how delicious it was. You will not be disappointment.I wish I could do it all over again because it really was everything I hoped for and more. You will not be disappointed!I would like to thank the Gizio Club, from the bottom of my heart, for everything they did for us, leading up to and on our special day! I cannot wait to return for my sister's wedding!!

We celebrated my son & daughter in law's wedding at the Gizio Banquet Centre in July. Planning a wedding in 6 weeks due to the Covid situation was challenging however with the assistance and suggestions of management it all came together very nicely. Mirella was very helpful and listened to all my concerns. The area for the outdoor ceremony was lovely and provided a beautiful country setting for photographs. I was most pleased with the dinner. We had many compliments about the food. It was delicious. The outdoor patio also provided a lovely space for guests to mingle outside.I would recommend the Gizio Centre to anyone hosting a small to mid sized event.
