“Horrible Italian food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Spent 60.00 tonite for tasteless so called Italian food.The meatballs had absolutely no taste at all.Mushroom ravioli was poor at best...I've had a better Caesar salad at Publix! I'm sticking to Costas...they beat Gian Marcos hands down...

“one of the BEST in Birmingham”

Consistently superb Italian fare. Great wine list and staff gladly makes adjustments in dishes. One of my Birmingham favorites! The seafood is consistently excellent!

“Best food in Birmingham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I have eaten here over a dozen times and Gianmarco has never disappointed. My personal favorite dishes are oyster bruschetta, calamari, muscles for appetizers. Any kind of veal chop they have on the menu is amazing. I would listen to the chefs specials before making a decision about what you are ordering. Excellent wine selection. Chefs counter is really fun if you are taking a date.

The only negative thing I would say is that the waiters can be hit & miss, but the food always delivers.

First time to have dinner in the wine bar area in the back of the restaurant. Food was exceptional as always and enjoyed the lively atmosphere.

“Outstanding Italian in Birmingham.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We have eaten at Gianmarco's on several occasions while visiting Birmingham. Agree with poster who described this as a "taste of Little Italy" as this is the type of restaurant one would find in NYC.
Food is excellent, varied menus , good service, great wine list.
Charming , neighborhood type atmosphere.
Want Italian?, don't know if there is a better place in Birmingham!
