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

Six of us arrived and the place was packed. We ended up eating at a small, high-top table that would have been suitable for two or perhaps four people. My wife and I picked up a bottle of wine which was priced at a normal retail price. This bottle of wine would have been close to $100 at a regular... More

This is an update to the review I wrote almost exactly two years ago (see my review from July 2014 with a similar title). I was looking forward to a return visit to the Birmingham area so I could again eat at the wine bar at Gianmarco's. Happily, everything was exactly the same as it was two years ago. The... More

Visit the small wine venue behind the main restaurant for lower prices on wine, a quaint locale and great food.

You will need reservations to dine at GianMarcos, but it is worth it. Wait staff is very knowledgeable about the menu and the food did not disappoint. We will go back to GianMarcos for certain.

This is a small, unassuming little place in Homewood, hidden in the Broadway neighborhood. The food here is simply the best Italian in the area. They offer impeccable service, a great menu and one of the best wine lists in town. We have been here several times through the years and they are consistently EXCELLENT. The wine bar out back...

After visiting only once, it would be unfair for me to rate GianMarcos "horrible", but it must be said my wife and I had meals which were certainly disappointing. The restaurant was beginning to fill up by 6:30 on a rainy Monday evening, indicating to me that the rave reviews that lured us here might be correct. I was wrong.... More
