Without a doubt one of the best and most authentic Italian restaurants in the south

Best Italian food in the deep south and at a value. This is easily one of my favorite Italian restaurants anywhere. My wife and I decided to do something different and order two appetizers versus our usual addiction to the exquisite caesar salad. She ordered a goat cheese crusted with toasted... read more

Went there for a business dinner. Reservations are a MUST! The waitress and kitchen staff were very attentive to dietary needs of some of our group. Wine selection was very good. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I will eat here again. It is out of the way in a neighborhood, which adds to the uniqueness of this restaurant.

Saw great reviews for Gianmarco's, so thought we'd try it out. We're from out of town, so visiting a local place was a real treat. The parking lot was packed, so I called from the car and asked if they could accommodate 2 for dinner. The fellow who answered the phone (happened to be the bartender) said to come on... More

We had a wonderful evening this past weekend with friends in the Wine Bar. The food was amazing as was the selection of wines. The Wine Bar does not accept advanced reservations but the wait time for a Saturday night was relatively short. Place your name on the list, grab a favorite bottle (prices were very reasonable) and sit outdoors... More

Our waiter was very professional and helpful. He appeared to be well-experienced at delivering high quality service. The food was very good, too, and we liked the atmosphere. Although we were visitors, the other diners appeared to be local. They appeared to be enjoying their experience, but the place was not loud.

Usually requires reservations. We were in a hurry and just sat in the wine bar in back. I ordered the spaghetti and meat balls with sweet Italian sausage. My friend ordered the Prim Rib. Both were great but he did wish he had ordered a pasta dish. I think mainly because he saw how great my spaghetti was. This has... More

$$$ If you are looking for good food, you won't be disappointed. Just a few minutes off interstate 65, make reservations way in advance or prepare to wait. Wasn't expecting valet parking but given unusual location in an older neighborhood, it's understandable. The restaurant is pretty small and crowded, but the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. It is not a... More

I've always heard of Gianmarco's as a great date spot, but truly it's great for all kinds of occasions. My first experience with the restaurant was as part of a supper club, and while there I saw family dinners, a birthday celebration and yes, couples who appeared to be on a date. The wine list is extensive. One of the... More

We recently took a friend of ours out to eat here along with a nephew and several nieces (8 total in our group). It was a fabulous experience all around. The wine selection was very good ( they have a wine store out back that actually has limited sitting for which reservations are not taken) and we started with an... More
