Went here for a night out with some girls. The food was fair but the service was awful. Will not return.

Went on a Thursday .Restaurant was busy & rather loud. First time there. Service was a bit slow. Follow up wasn't the best. Good thing we had all night. My husband's dinner was great & the kitchen was willing to make the meal he requested which wasn't on the menu. Had pasta purse appetizer. Was great. Would order that as... More

My wife and I came here as the guests of my cousin and her wonderful husband. They told us they were lucky to get in, it's usually reserved weeks in advance -- and I can see why, WHAT A GEM! Great food in huge servings. I had the lamb which was wonderful, my wife their chicken special, and the veal... More

Visited with some co-workers (we are all out-of-towners). Seemed like every local we talked to said to go here. We showed up without reservations around 8:30 and were seated in a few minutes. Our waiter (Joey) seemed personable but we really didn't see him much. The food came out steaming hot and presented nicely. Why can't most kitchens read the... More

We ate at the wine bar which had a very cool atmosphere. We had to wait about 45 minutes for our table but we went on a Saturday night so it was kind of expected. We had a group of 6 and we talking to a group of friends outside and we had multiple waiters say "Y'all aren't trying to... More

I love this place! Not easy on the wallet but the food is amazing. Wine list is extensive and the wait staff are a great help if you are undecided. Reservations are needed unless going to the wine bar in the back. I have been twice and will definitely be going again.

We had 18 family members out to dinner to celebrate my daughter's PHD dissertation. The food and service are outstanding although I did fine the wine to be a bit pricey

First trip to Gianmarco's for our 37th year of marriage celebration. The salads were good as was the desert but not as good a the main course which was excellent.

If you can get a reservation this is a must-visit gem. The service, food, wine list, ambiance are all excellent. When I return I will make a point to try and go again. The bar is small, and parking can be a little limited, but the regulars are used to it as is the wait staff and they make you... More

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.
