We have eaten here a few times and have very good and only average food. It's quiet (there are not visible windows in the restaurant). We have enjoyed several items and some not so much. We will go again. Portions are large enough to share or take home for another meal, average prices and the staff is warm and friendly. Take out pizza in the front and restaurant in the back. It's worth going.

We took our granddaughter there for her birthday. Although the food was OK, we had terrible service. After our order was taken, there was a long wait until our server returned and said they were out of some things we had ordered. We changed our order, and there was another long wait until he came again and said that they were out of one of the things we ordered. After a second change, there was a third long wait before we got our meals. The server didn't seem to show any concern and was very offhand about the whole ordeal.

We have been to Il Giardino a number of times and have always liked it (it's one of the closest restaurants to our home), but this time, we were very disappointed because what was meant to be a special occasion was spoiled.

I love this place. When we are in the mood for a good Italian dinner, or want a quality, specialty pizza (not too expensive), we look to Il Giardino's. We have spent Christmas Eve enjoying their fare with family (yes, really, that worthy), and recommend highly to locals. Philly is full of Italian places - this is a good one.

This restaurant used to be our go to neighborhood spot. The food was always reliably good, prices were reasonable, it was byo which we love for a casual evening. Now under new management (again) it is really slipping. The pizzas do not always match the description and in one particular case, there was a lone piece of prociutto on the whole pie.
A local strip mall Italian restaurant should not be pricing themselves like a fine dining establishment. The menu has been scaled down, the prices have gone sky high. One night a tilapia "special" was $32.00! On a recent visit the service was extremely slow and the explanation was they had to do a lot of take-out. I always thought that customers who take the time to come to your restaurant deserve priority over take-out orders. The tables around us were not cleared the whole time we were there. To win us back, Il Giardino should return to its origial formula of good bread, great sauce and quick service. It could also use a good cleaning and update of decor. We won't be back for a while.
