    We keep returning to Giardinetta for family dinners as well as to dine by ourselves or with friends. We are never disappointed with the food or service. It is a wonderful restaurant and we are lucky to live not far from it.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 7/18/2014
    Delicious specials coupled with solid menu items, all extremely tasty. A semi hidden gem tucked away in a neighborhood setting. Meticulous attention to detail with competent and attentive staff. A must have is the bolanese sauce over pasta and any chicken or pork dish. Desserts are somewhat boring.

    My boyfriend and I had a three-course meal and every part of it was simply delicious. We ordered the grilled jumbo shrimp over vegetables (Gamberoni alla giardinetto), veal chop valdotana, prime new york Sirloin steak, and tiramisu. All of these dishes were fresh and tasty. Would definitely come back!

    It was Monday night and this was perfect for the group because it was crowded and or noisy. The waiters were very attentive to our needs and the food was good. We could enjoy each other's company because the noise level was down. Everyone of us seemed to enjoy what we ordered. The round table was perfect.

    Dined on 8/5/2012
    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!!!!
