“Fabulous!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

We purchased the Early Bird special from Deal Saver. Wasn't expecting much for the cost. But one of friends who frequents this restaurant was always saying great things about it. So figured we'd give it a try. So glad we did! Our waiter, Dylan, was very attentive and friendly and did a great job. We were even greeted by the chefs and welcomed in by them upon our arrival. Being in the restaurant/bartending field, I always look for service above and beyond. This was no exception. Our meals were individually hand prepared - no packaged stuff here. Even the simplest item like the bread and the oil dip were amazing. I highly recommend Giancarlo's!

“Fabulous”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Excellent atmosphere, food and service. We purchased a four martini / two appetizers coupon from the Tribune. Was very skeptical. Experience was delightful. Martinis were perfect...very dry..and extremely cold. Selected the eggplant tourine and mussels appetizers. Both were a 10. Had a cannoli and two lemon flavored cocktails . Excellent cannolli and excellent cocktail. Loved the ambience and the service was excellent and friendly. One of the best restaurant experiences. We plan to become regular customers.

Three adults and 2 kiddos, everyone left full and happy. We had excellent local seafoods and the kids had pizza. All perfection. My husband had some dish called "my favorite". Ohhhh wow homemade noodles with Italian Ham and smooth creamy cheese. So good we all loved it. The best choice as it is upscale, great service, devious food and a perfect experience. Yummy

“Excellent Surprise”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

I treated myself and three friends to dinner here after I found an excellent coupon deal, We were pleasantly surprised by the wide variety and the server's suggestions. The appetizer's were incredible and the specials, too, Nice wine selection and good service. Will definitely take others back for other special occasions. Really nice surprise in the Central Coast.

“Good eating”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

This was a good experience in a well established restaurant. It has been rated as the second best in Morro Bay, and while we did not test all the other possibilities, that rating is probably accurate. The food was well prepared, fresh and very tasty. The atmosphere was average and the service, above average. For someone looking for a good meal at a very reasonable price, I would recommend this restaurant, but nothing really stands out as being exceptional.
