Gianmarco's is the best Italian Food in Alabama. It's authentic and delicious. The ambiance is warm and welcoming and service always great. Call ahead for reservations as they fill up quickly. The wine bar out back is also appealing.

The steak was perfectly prepared. When I asked about substituting one part of a pasta salad, they offered me both! (In case I preferred one over another). The service was exceptional.

Sorry. It has been several months but I am sure you can order on the lower side of costs. If this is a special occasion it will be worth it. I checked and did not see a website for a menu.
