“Excellent place to people watch and enjoy good food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Caffe Garibaldi is in Piazza del Signori the main Piazza in Vicenza. It sits on a corner of the square opposite the Basilica.and therefore commands a great view of the activity and monuments in that area. I attended a birthday party at Garibaldi in the evening where we all sat outside. At dusk the square comes to life, the Basilica is lit up,there are people are everywhere and vendors selling all kinds of quirky things. The party was catered by the Caffe and included full waiter service with a bar. They provided anti pastas a delicous cold pesto, cheese and tomato pasta and a wonderful birthday cake made with puff pastry, cream and strawberries. I would definetely recommend this place for eats, drinks, atmosphere etc. If you prefer to have a quiet meal then may not be for you but otherwise check it out..

“Avoid!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

I been there several times, I never had a good treatment. It is a good location, very beautiful restaurant but look like the staff is always sad and over working. The wine selection is good and the location as I said is the best, but I will never come back!..

Dear Mr Migliorelli,
your review is quite unexpected. You say that you came back to visit us more than one time, that the location is very good, that the wine selection is good and you never name the food. By the way your evaluation is extremely negative and you even suggest to “avoid” us” basing your statement on the fact that the crew looks “sad”.
We think it is an excessively negative evaluation on the base of your statements themselves. Our personnel is trained to treat our customers in the most professional way. You never refer to our courses, and we think you never taste them.
Therefore we invite you to visit us once again to test our quality level and we will make our best to greet you with more than one smile.

The location was great for people watching and the food was pretty good. It was not over the top delicious but the whole experience was great.

“Unfeeling staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

I visited here not as a restaurant but a cafeteria. The stuff were so busy because it was Sunday and I waited for a so long time since I ordered cappuccino and tiramisu. It's OK, but I had an unpleasant feeling because they weren't so nice. It looked like many of them were in a glum mood. In my impression, people of other places was very friendly and nice in Vicenza except this cafe. There are lots of nice cafe in Vicenza so you may want to go other cafe if you want to have a cup of coffee in present place.

“First Floor Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

This first floor restaurant above, and part off, cafe Garibaldi is in our opinion by very far the best restaurant in town. A very young twenty-something chef is creative and cooks with great respect for well chosen ingredients. Local cuisine with a touch of sophistication. Reasonably priced. Highly recomended.
