Food is overpriced and over seasoned. The wait staff were friendly and attentive but couldn't make up for poor food. We will not go back. Too many much nicer places.

Excellent menu, preparation, presentation, and service. I love finding a great restaurant with its own personality instead of a slick chain. I highly recommend the lamb or the veal marsala. Be sure to get reservations, because it's quite popular with the locals, but space is limited.

I took my wife to Gianmarcos for our 29th Anniversary. I made reservations two weeks in advance and all I could get on a Saturday night was before 6:00pm or after 8:30pm. Obviously it's a popular, upper class restaurant. The ambiance is appropriate, but the tables are small and it's quite noisy. The noise level comes from the kitchen. There... More

We had dinner there in December. GET A RESERVATION. You cannot get a table without one. We were treated to a sample of most every desert on the menu, and even some that were not. If you are going, go with someone who eats there frequently that they know. I was very impressed with the food. It was very good... More

You could easily drive by this place if you don't know or aren't planning. A shame if you do. What an amazing place. Extenzive wine list, some great hits that you just don't get elsewhere, see Turley and Cade. Move to the apps and there isn't a misfire anywhere. Entrees are just as good, specials amazed, meats cooked expertly. Desserts... More

The wild mushroom ravioli was excellent, the server was attentive, we were a large party at lunch. Only slight was the loud music.

Always, always a great experience here. Food is outstanding and exceptional. Bar is great and excellent wine availability. Always standing room only if you do not make reservations in advance. If you don't have reservations, eat at the bar. The food is outstanding regardless of where you are eating.

Simply put....great food. Crowded, I mean jammed together tables. A bit overpriced, like 3 scallops on your plate rather than 4 but they are delicious. These guys pack the place every night like Disney world so they can over charge for food and drinks. Reservations are 2 weeks in advance, and parking sucks. It's all location and good food.

Easily one of the best meals that I have had in Birmingham. I had the Veal Parmesan and it was huge and good. I have been at least 4 times in the past 6 months and never had a bad meal.

have been here 3 times while visiting UA. IT is hte best atmosphere---have eaten in the bar bar--but the wine house is the place to be----such a fun place. They will make special variations if you ask, and the wine choices are endless. Thanks
