My sister & I both had the special which was Seafood pasta primavera alfredo. It was. There was a great deal of seafood and a very well rounded. The portion was more than enough and plenty left over for the next evening. Our server was efficient and quick but with a great sense of humor and personality. This will definitely... More

I have been here many times and I always leave satisfied. I really like the pasta bites, Italian grilled cheese, and lasagna. About once a month they have a special of rosemary salmon which is one of my favorite meals of all time. Probably the best Italian restaurant I have ever visited. Drinks are a bit expensive and it can... More

I've always heard great things about this place and it being a local favorite... but was disappointed when I finally tried it. I got the chicken alfredo and it was very bland and the sauce was somewhat grainy in texture.

Went to dinner for the first time on a Saturday evening with 5 in our party. The place is small and intimate but it fit the decor and atmosphere. Server was great and we had appetizers, dinners and drinks and the food was great. The pasta is so good and made fresh and the portions were plenty. Lots of take... More

Just terrible! They don't take reservations, but told us they did not expect to be busy. (On a Friday night in Jackson? Red Flag!) When we got there we were told that they did not have a table big enough for us (party of 8), but we could sit at adjoining tables. Perhaps they were adjoining, but because one was... More

Authentic delicious Italian food. We dine at Giglio's weekly and always have an exceptional meal. Love the warm atmosphere and friendly staff. The spaghetti and meatballs are outstanding. The specials are always wonderful. Highly recommend Giglio's to those that appreciate fine dining.

Although we don't go ofter, we love it when we do. My husband usually gets the antipasto salad, which is huge, but this time he ordered spagetti with sausage and enjoyed it. Our friend also enjoyed his dish of shrimp primavera. Us gals stuck to our "usual", italian nachos! It's listed as an appetizer but you really can't eat it... More

Passed this restaurant often and finally went there for lunch...what a bad experience! It was on Good Friday and was looking for a good fish dish..only found one of the menu...Garlic oil and clam sauce over spaghetti...everything is a la carte, so salad was extra. Also ordered stuffed mushroom...very pricey at $9 and very mediocre. Clam dish was underwhelming and... More

Giglios is a favorite. Real home-made Italian is simple and fresh and they get it. Portions are generous, ingredients are fresh, owners & employees are very accommodating, and the atmosphere is inviting. I go here a couple of times per month just to pick up take out meatballs for spaghetti night at home. Two huge meatballs and tons of red... More

if you're tired of the long lines and manufactured feel of Olive Garden and love a small, locally owned restaurant you should try Giglio's. The food is good, atmosphere comfy and I love the house salad with garbanzo beans and homemade italian dressing. my favorite dish is the eggplant parmesan when its on special and the fried breaded pasta bite...
