  • "While all of the advertizing for Giardinetto said that it opened at 3 PM on Sundays, when we arrived the door was locked. A young busboy opened the door and said that the restaurant would not open until 5. When we kept insisting that the sign even said that it opened at 3, he took pity on us and allowed us to sit at a table even though no other staff was there. After a few minutes, he told us that he had called the chef who was on his way to take care of us. True to his word, the chef arrived shortly. In between, the server had offered us water and bread! We ordered around 3:30 or so and was served by ab out 4 PM. The suggestions were good and the food also. The server really made the meal!!!!"
