About the restaurant
Equal parts restaurant and experience, Mulberry Italian Ristorante is a wonderful option for those who want an authentically delicious meal. Explaining that it may look like the Bronx, but that it tastes like Manhattan, this cozy eatery is just south of the center of Buffalo and offers iconic Italian foods.

Visitors to Mulberry Italian Ristorante can enjoy their lunch or dinner menu items and will find that even some of the standards are far more creative than what they usually encounter. Freshness is also a huge part of the experience, and the caprese is hand crafted each day while the pasta is homemade on the premises. Delicious and comprehensive, the Mulberry Italian Ristorante menu is a delight.

Beautiful experience for date night with my bride. Relaxing environment in the middle of a quiet neighborhood. The ambiance reminded me of an Italian cafe. It was easy to tell that every diner was happy to be there. The food was on point, and the service was exceptional. My wife was excited to share how clean and tidy the entire restaurant was… which is not easy to find these days.

Pre-meal salad bar was again fresh and presentation was on point. Options for meal and beverages was explained in detail without seeming forced. Servers were attentive with meat options without appearing rushed. Wait staff was prompt with all beverage refills and plate removals, without having to be prompted by diners.

About the restaurant
Our Sicilian Steakhouse is an original concept that celebrates the Sicilian-immigrant culinary experience. Referred to as the "original fusion cuisine," Sicilian food is a historical mosaic influenced by the various conquering nations. Traces of Greece, North Africa, Rome, the Middle East, Germanic nations, France, Spain, and Italy are evident in traditional Sicilian cuisine. At Giancarlo's, our love of history-rich Sicilian cuisine is combined with our interpretation of both the great American Steakhouse and the Neapolitan Pizzeria.

Giancarlo's is our favorite restaurant. Never disappoints. Staff is friendly. We had Emma as our server who was just so nice and attentive and easy to chat with. Love going here for my birthday to celebrate with a delicious dessert! Can't wait to go back.
