“One awesome Happy Hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Had heard very positive recommendations about Girardi's happy hour and decided to try it out with another couple. While the bar area is small and the outside seating is great for enjoying nice weather (these are the two normal happy hour seating areas) we went on a night that was a bit chilly and wet. Not to fear they also use tables in the main restaurant area to seat happy hour guests. Staff was nice and attentive without be overbearing. One look at the happy hour menu and you will be amazed, it was probably the most extensive that I have seen anywhere. Easily 30-40 choices many of which are scaled down versions of main meals or appetizers off the regular menu. Most of the choices were priced in the $4-$7 range so it made it easy to try new things that sounded good. All 4 of us enjoyed our food, found some new items to try again and can't wait to go back to continue exploring other menu items. Top off the large food selection with a happy hour drink menu that has good variety and good prices and it completed our adventure.

Only reason for not giving 5 stars is that some items on the menu don't have descriptions so you could order something that comes with a sauce or topping you were not expecting. Not many items like that but one we selected did fall into that category, didn't ruin the meal or anything but would have liked to have known. Next time we'll ask about the preparation on those items.

Take a culinary adventure and try Girardi's happy hour.

“Awesome Happy Hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We heard about this place while shopping. It sounded like a good idea for a bite to eat. It was absolutely wonderful happy hour place. A menu of 4-5 PAGES! Food that filled us up for $5 each. My Pork with Marsala sauce and linguini was amazing. My friend had shrimp manicotti that was great. The guy across from us said you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. No alcohol for us, so I cannot comment on that. Dinner for $10 for 2 was great. I'd drive to there anytime for great food. More than enough food to fill me up. Great atmosphere, cute place. We were very happy we asked where the the "Italian place for happy hour" was located. Great end to fun shopping in downtown Edmonds.

“Wonderful Edmonds restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

Friday night had a wonderful Happy Hour - is really a tapas place with lots of small plates. Recommendations: Caesar salad, Calamari Fries, Ling Cod with Asiago Cheese & asparagus. Excellent food at an execelllent price. Nice to know someone can fry food as well as I can with no fat!

“Al Fresco dining under the trees.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We met our friends for a delicious dinner. We had a table under the trees with the setting sun to our backs. I had the stuffed salmon. Belisimo! My friend said that the risotto was the best he'd ever had. Relaxed, affordable and delicious.

“I liked it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Girardi`s Osteria Italiana is quaintly located in an old home in Edmonds. The Staff is friendly, and service was good. We had cocktails at the bar for happy hour and then proceeded to our party of 10. The food was good, and seemed to be competitively priced. I would go again.
