My second visit at this restaurant. Excellent food at reasonable prices. No Sysco style food here. Everything was freshly prepared and tasted great. Not quite "fine dining" but certainly above the "nice restaurant" norm. In addition to the nice ambiance the chairs were very comfortable. I'll be back.

I chose this restaurant based on the reviews. Although we came to Morro bay for the seaside ambiance, I am not a seafood fan. I choose this place as a shared birthday celebration for my sister and I. Even without stating the occasion the service and the food made this dinner the special event we wanted it to be.

Every visit gets better than the last. Love Giancarlo's and will continue to drive 3 hours for the best Italian food I have ever had! When you go... sit at the bar and watch the magic happen. It amazes me watching the chefs be so in sync with one another.... its perfection at its finest.

We ate here when visiting friends who live in the area. The restaurant is conveniently located on one of the main streets in MB. Our meals were good and they had a nice selection of local wines. We found this restaurant to be a little expensive, but we had a nice night out, here.

Tried this restaurant about two years ago and found it to be very adequate. This time I was blown away. GC's Bistro (new name) had just been completely remodeled inside and it is beautiful!! I used a voucher I found on Travel Zoo that included two entrees, and appetizer, along with two glasses of wine. Loren was our server and... More

Beautiful hammered copper tables, indoor grilling, pizza oven, the works. Great food, atmosphere, and service. Don't miss out on a chance to see what great food looks and tastes like. GC is a culinary artist, and you will see what i mean, when you order the surf and turf.

This is an incredible bistro. I recommend it to anyone who loves the very best food. The food arrives at your table, beautifully plated, like its a work of culinary art. This place just got a full remodel, and it is amazing. Don't miss stopping in here whenever you're in Morro Bay.
