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

My husband and I went for dinner on a Thursday night. The place was packed but there was room at the bar. The car has to be valet parked, which is fortunate because it was cold! We had beer and wine. We had a nice tomato mozzarella salad. I had the special pork chop on beans and rab. The chop... More

Have dined both in the main dining room and wine bar out back and both are superb. On the menu, I love the penne a la vodka, but there's always a special that temps me as well. Last night that special was lobster stuffed shells and it was fantastic. Staff is helpful and not pretentious. It's an all around great... More

Love this place, nestled in a neighborhood. Lasagna, Penne ala Vodka, Carpaccio, all amazing. The wine bar out back is great if you don't have reservations the staff is over the top service oriented. be prepared for the specials list it will cause you to second guess your choices.
