If your in the area and are looking for a great restaurant look no further. Food, service, atmosphere are ( in my humble opinion) what dining is supposed to be. This is not your quiet, candlelight restaurant, it's a place to have fun, talk, see and be seen, and of course, eat great food. Totally enjoyed by our foursome!

The food is very good and the atmosphere is relaxing. I actually had one of the best Veal dishes I've ever had here. Next time I'm in the area, I'd definitely like to return!

We went for the early bird special, but two of us chose off the regular menu. It seemed as if the waiter never left the table. The food was fantastic and well worth the price. They put parmesan cheese in the oil for the bread which was great.

This is a nice Italian restaurant on the South end of Virginia Beach. It has a main dining area and a lounge area/piano bar. We asked to sit in the lounge and the pianist was great, playing classic rock, blues and oldies while we ate. The service was friendly and quick. I had a brick oven pizza that was great.... More

Il Giardino is one of my go-to date spots in Virginia Beach. They are always an awesome meal, great wine selection, and great service. Be sure to have one of their flatbreads and save room for dessert!

Started out with a delicious drink served by a delicious looking waiter! The recommendations were great. The food was amazing. While the special was $37, it included a salad that was nice size. Enjoyed a Baileys afterwards in the quiet ambience.

I very rarely use social media to express my displeasure over service especially restaurant service. Having been a server, front of the house, bartender, trainer etc. over the years, I give restaurants a lot of leeway. However, tonight I went to a favorite restaurant, Il Giardino, Virginia Beach with my family as is our Shamrock Race weekend tradition and I... More
