The food and service was classic
The food and service was classic Italian. This was a great place for a business lunch where you actually want to hear the person you are with! Strangely, it was not crowded for how good it was. Nice neighborhood too.

Great Italian resturant
Just happened on this restaurant on a Business trip to NY. I had the veal saltimbocca and it was excellent. The veal was tender and tasty. The service was excellent' I had dinner about 5:30 and the restaurant was not crowded. By the time I was finished eating, the crowds were picking up. Note is is a $$$ restaurant, but was well worth the enjoyable meal.

This was my second visit in
This was my second visit in two days. I was very happy with the food the first time and they did not disappoint me this time. The homemade pasta dish was excellent. The tomato cream sauce was great. Again the service was perfect even though there were quite a few patrons this nigh then before.

Truly a must go while in NYC
This truly is a hidden gem in the heart of New York's financial district. The food was outstanding, we were sat immediately upon reservation time, and we seldom have had service such as we received here anywhere in the world. Benny and the rest of the restaurant catered to us as though VIP's. They have an exceptional wine list This has now become a must go when traveling to Manhattan.

Grat surprise to find such
Grat surprise to find such a good Italian restaurant in the Financial District. From the very nice complimentary antipasto platter to the delicious veal, we were very pleased. Also, very extensive wine list.

A perfect all rounder
We found this restaurant by chance for a business dinner and of all the business dinners we had this week Giardino D'Oro stood out as being remarkable. The service was exceptional and the waiter was very knowledgeable about how the food was sourced and prepared as well as about the menu overall. The ambiance was great and the low sound levels make conversation and discussion easy. The food was fantastic and the wine list left nothing to be desired.

We will certainly revisit
In NY for wifes birthday weekend. Stayed in the financial district, which we do not normally do.
Was concerned that because of a saturday night, in the summer, on wall street, the overall experience may be lacking because of the "off peak" time. It was a very pleasant experience, the service was right on, the meal was very well prepared and presented and they ambiance was very quiet and romantic.
We get to NY about once every six weeks, sometimes finding a good restaurant may not be as easy as you would think. This restaurant is a keeper and will be recommended to friends and business associates as a must visit.

Great food and service
We had late reservations for dinner (9:30 pm) on a Friday night. This part of the city is pretty quiet by then. We were the only people in the restaurant, but at no point did we feel rushed. The service was great and the food was outstanding.

This restaurant is in the financial district in New York City. The food was excellent and the service impeccable. After ordering we were brought a basket of bread and bread sticks along with a cheese, meat, and olive plate. I have been to Italy and this is similar to what is done there. I ordered the linguine with clams and my husband had shrimp with spicy tomato sauce. My clams were a little larger than I expected. I like smaller ones, so I should have asked before ordering, but the dish was very good. My husband liked his also. I highly recommend this restaurant. It is classy and very Italian.

We had a party of 13 and they accommodated everyone's needs. We were not rushed and they even provided the table with a round of drinks because the system had gone down, delaying the cheque.
We had a colleague from Italy with our group and he also loved the food. Fantastic!

Old world Italian cuisine
A recommended stop for reasonably priced traditional Italian fare with lovely ambience. Lighting was kind of dim, but that did not detract from the overall experience. The food was suptuous and presented with great care. The precursor to the meal was nice cheeses, olives, salami and bread. All were fresh and tasty. There were an extensive number of appetizers and specials. The menu was a great representation of traditional dishes. Good wine selection. Overall great food priced right and the service was attentive and professional.

Fine Dining in the Financial Dist
This gem is a great find for both new yorkers and tourists alike. I have eaten here often over the last 4 years and never had a meal that wasn't perfection. You can go in for lunch, dinner or office party and still receive the same great service and delicious meal. When my favorite meal isn't on special they always suggest something that never makes me think "second choice".

Went to this restaurant in
Went to this restaurant in a group of six, including two children. The service was excellent, and the dining room staff made it a very pleaseant experience, even entertaining the children. The wine list offered an excellent selction. The food was was prefectly prepared, well seasoned, and thoroughly enjoyable. In particluar, the Filet of Dover Sole was absolutely spectacular! I am very much looking forward to going back, and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Great Service, Excellent Food
We arrived early at 5:30 for dinner before the theater. We were treated very well by all of the staff. The food was excellently prepared and presented. The bread/antipasto dish they bring when you first sit down was unique and really nice. The interior layout is very nice and relaxing - tables are not too close together and it really feels like an authentic Italian establishment.

Moist and flavorful sea bass
We had beautiful, flavorful sea bass and veal. Very traditional and
Enjoyable experience. Service was professional, attentive, but not hovering.
We can't wait to return.

Solid food, well served
At most restaurants I find the appetizers to be very tasty and dinner a tad less so. Here it was the reverse. I had the beef carpachio which was OK but the Satiimbocca ala Romano was superb. This was also true for my three other fellow dinners. The wait staff was attentive without being obtrusive.

More than I expected
We found this place while traveling. Relatively quiet (except the loud-talker in the corner), and food was tasty & well prepared. Great place for a couple to enjoy a nice dinner!

Excellent food and service. Went there to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and we were treated extra-special. We were even given free shots of the drink of our choice from the bar.

great food, great service, overall great. quiet however. went with a group of 9 and were the only ones inside.

Our foursome had a great lunch at this spot right in the middle of the financial district. I can imagine that this place gets a lot of customers during the work week. We were there on a holiday so it was *very* quiet.
The food was top quality. I had the pasta special, and someone else at the table had the seafood special (branzino). I got to taste both and they were excellent. The other dishes looked really great too. We each happened to get the eggplant appetizer, and that was a real gem. We seriously thought about ordering seconds of the appetizer once we were done, and even joked about getting it for dessert too. The service was impeccable.
