I have been in Columbia for 3 weeks of work project so far I have tried out most of the high rating restaurants in Vista and Five Points - I have to say this is my top number one surpass the Motor Supply Co and Ristorante Divinio - they were my No1 and 2 until now - the Seafood Stew... More

This was our first visit. The hype and reputation this restaurant has made me want to try it out. Not impressive. Me and my husband walked in and stood at the door for a few minutes while employees walked right passed us with not so much as a "hello" or "welcome to garibaldi's"! Off to an awkward start. Then the... More

Despite the dated pastel colored walls and somewhat gaudy decor, this restaurant offers amazing food, great service and a wonderful wine selection. I have enjoyed meals at table service and at the bar. This is a great place for family, romantic dining, or a business meal. I bring my out of town visitors here

Let me start by saying I do not like to write negative reviews. The restaurant has to be really bad for me to do this and unfortunately our experience was simply awful. Sunday night with only about seven tables seated and dinner took over 75 minutes to come out of the kitchen. Nothing was coming out of that place. When... More

We love italian food & they offer a great selection, service and wine list. The chef's special of shrimp in angel hair pasta with asiago and parmesan cheese, sundried tomato did not disappoint!

Garibaldi's is especially good with fish ... and if you've never tried the "house" crispy flounder, you're in for a treat. We have taken visitors to Garibaldi's for years, and I can't remember a disappointing visit. I have found that they are flexible on changing sides, if you'd rather something else - and the service is, I would have to... More

Garibaldi's has always been a go to restaurant for special occasions or to bring out of town guests to dinner, however, I won't be going back any time soon. The old expansive menu has been reduced to 2 pages and is very limited. I returned my cocktail twice - the first time because it barely filled the glass and the... More

Garibaldi has been my favorite, reliable restaurant in Columbia for ten years, but something is amiss. Normally prompt service was slow and unapologetic, bathroom was messy and the faucets didn't work, and the special of the day fish dish was uninspired. The redesigned menu doesn't do much to showcase the offerings. The pear salad and short ribs were excellent, but... More
