We were staying at the Alluvian over Thanksgiving, and had no other option for dinner than to eat at Giardina's. We were surprised that they did not bother to offer turkey as an entree for Thanksgiving. We were disappointed. Fish was ok, but pasta was good, so, I guess, go here when you want Italian. They have the typical (for... More

Interesting speak easy type accommodation in booths. A little strange but quirky. Food was good and well served by friendly staff.

I got invited on a business dinner here and had a great meeting on a private table behind a curtain. The building has a great history behind it. I ordered the lamb of the menu and it was great. Would be a great spot for romantic dinner

Wanted a nice meal while in Greenwood, we were pretty stoked on this place as it has great reviews online. Hostesses were snotty and wouldn't acknowledge us for some time, despite one of our party being on crutches (and in pain) and us having a reservation (it was a Tuesday, not busy). We didn't just leave right then and there... More

Each year we come to the city for our college homecoming and celebrate our friends birthday at Giardinas . The private room setting is the best. The staff is wonderful, the Cajun shrimp and grits I'm still talking about, and the ambiance offers true Delta hospitality with upscale dining. We love dining here and can't wait to see you next...

My colleague and I went here on our last day of the visit to Greenwood area and were most impressed by the food and drink selections. Yes, everything was pricey, but, for the most part, worth it. Especially, when it was paid out our expense account. My colleague is a vegetarian and the staff did everything possible to meet his... More

Giardina's is located in the Alluvian Hotel in downtown Greenwood. I've generally eaten in the bar and have enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. My most recent trip found my wife and I there for drinks on a couple of occasions and for a light bite one afternoon. We enjoyed the onion rings, fried avocados, catfish cakes and oysters with...

First experience here was great ( 5 years ago). This time they were too busy to be attentive (reservation was made a month prior to visit). The food was fine but the service severely lacking. No apologies given in spite of no water refills, bread provided after meal completed, had to request dessert menus for known birthday celebration, no coffee... More

Thanks Queen for being the BEST waitress in MS! I ordered the scallops this time and they were excellent! The Ribeye is still my favorite and I'm so thankful that my husband orders it every time and is willing to share!
