Fine Italian food for 2!

Just visited The Garlic in NSB and the recommendation and reviews lived up to all the hype. The restaurant is super unique, really cool indoor and outdoor patio ambience. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions were enormous! Our server was friendly and attentive. We feasted on the manicotti, seafood Italiano, shrimp and scampi pasta and the chicken Marsala.... More

The Garlic has been a favorite of ours for several years. And with a tableside song from the owner occasionally, the evening is complete. The variety of the menu is excellent. Food is well prepared and wonderful. The outdoor courtyard setting is outstanding. We look forward to our next visit!

Great food in a very nice atmosphere. The decor of the place from the moment you walk in just sets this place apart. We were visiting from Ireland and had read some reviews about the place. We were really impressed with the food and the service. We would highly recommend checking this place out.

We showed up on a Wednesday at 430pm and were seated immediately. Early bird specials were well worth the price. Half size portions and we couldn't finish our meals. Nobody in our party cared for the garlic spread brought out with bread. Service was great. You can sit inside, outside under awning, or outside under tree covers. The atmosphere was... More

My Husband and I eaten here together countless times, many times we have also visited The Garlic with different groups of family and/or friends; I have never had anything but a wonderful experience. The Garlic has unparallelled Italian food and atmosphere. If you are visiting the New Smyrna area it's a "Must Do"! I hope this review helps, but don't... More

Cannot be beat! You must go here once! Order a rooster of wine, eggplant stack for an appetizer, garlic soup and chicken Marsala. Or not, because it really doesn't matter what you order because nothing will beat the bread and garlic spread they bring out before dinner. Do not leave New Smyrna Beach without eating at The Garlic!
