Gianmarcos is a family owned and unique Italian restaurant. It is off the beaten path and a simple and unpretentious place with authentic food. Try the daily specials and ask your server for suggestions as they are most helpful. Extensive wine list and broad menu as well as specials can all be enjoyed. Deserves repeated visits to experience the deep... More

A lovely gem of a restaurant. Remember to book early because reservations go fast. This is one of those restaurants where you should always order whatever sounds good, because whatever you order will be great. This is my favorite restaurant in Birmingham. The wine list is exceptional and the bar service is outstanding. On a recent evening I dined at... More

Recommended by locals. Made a reservation for Samford Parents Weekend. Everything was fabulous! Cozy atmosphere, excellent service and delicious food from starters to dessert. I can see this becoming a family tradition for sure.

This is a fabulous place to dine and wine! I cant say enough great things about this place. I have never been to the front restaurant as you need reservations, but have dined in the back house about 5 times. It is the same menu as the front and the menu changes often. Pick your wine while you wait for... More

Go for the food, and not for decoration. Enjoy some of the best Italian food in Birmingham. The seating can get tight. Watching the cooks bantering and dishing out food in the kitchen makes it a personal, family affair.

My husband ate for our 22nd anniversary. We had the oyster appetizer and the homemade ravioli special appetizer too. Both were fabulous! We went on a Monday night and people were waiting for a table. This shows how amazing! We had made a reservation, so I would definitely recommend reserving a table. I do wish we had ordered the veal... More

One of the best restaurants in Birmingham, and in the South for that matter. The lasagna is exquisite. Their nightly specials are all so good it actually makes it difficult to decide what to order. They've recently stepped it up another notch by using organic Joyce Farms chicken and beef in their menu items. Now great has become even greater.... More

Here's the secret. The midday food is just as good as evening and prices are slashed. Rick and Marilee got the crab cakes; Harriet got the pork tenderloin ( ridiculously good) and I got the sausage and peppers over spaghetti. After I ate half of it, I took a photo. I took the other half home. That's two great meals... More

We arrived a bit before the 5 pm start of service so we could wine shop for dinner and enjoyment. The staff was very helpful in selecting wines even in the midst of their preps for dinner service. That is just the kind of service Gianmarco's offers to everyone who visits. The regular menu is terrific and the nightly specials... More
