Italian
For a taste of Italy in the heart of Brooklyn, look no further than Gargiulo’s. We are an authentic Italian restaurant serving delicious, traditional Neapolitan fare made from family recipes that have stood the test of time. Our food is unbeatable, made with fresh, high-quality ingredients and cooked in-house with care. Gargiulo’s has been family owned and operated since 1907, making us a Brooklyn staple and a Coney Island favorite for over a century.


We have a huge dining area, perfect for enjoying a lunch with coworkers or a romantic dinner for two. In addition to lunch and dinner, we also offer private dining rooms that can host anywhere from 20 to 400 people. We also provide catering, so your next corporate meeting, party, wedding reception or event just got a lot tastier!

My childhood started in Coney Island, and my family always went to Gargiulo's Restaurant. We loved it then and we still love it now. It's nice somethings never change.

The food was absolutely great. The waiter "Jerry" was so thoughtful and courteous. We spent over three hours having an afternoon luncheon for my uncle's 90th birthday. He remembered a cake in the dessert too. Overall, a wonderful experience. Can not wait to return.

The service was terrible. I mean horrible... no, really bad! It was Mother’s Day, so the menu was prefixed; we literally waited 1 hour and 20 minutes to be served. The food wasn’t even worth the wait, we waited all that time for a frozen dinner. I ordered the $95 surf and turf, and half of what was suppose to be a fillet mignon was fat “they probably assumed that I didn’t know the difference.” The deserts were frozen/prepacked, even the cappaacino, I ordered turned out to be a terrible cup of joe. $400 dolars later (for a party of 4 “2 adults and 2 children”, I found myself compelled to leave this review. Something that I have never done before.

Service was horrible. The waiter would mumble things, avoid our table, and forgot about us. The food took long and the manager was not sympathetic either. The food was mediocre especially for the price point. I was charged for a drink I never got. Will never go back.

Gargiulo’s sets the standards for other restaurants. We’ve been customers for 40 years. This is a place for locals and tourists alike. While in Coney Island take in the beach, rides, boardwalk & Gargiulo’s.

For all the reputation, Gargiulo's has, in my opinion, gone downhill. Maybe it's the refurbishment and huge seating (they told us they were going to have 1,000 covers for Mother's Day alone) that makes the food less appealing, but that's the story. Hadn't been there in a long while, went back, and probably won't go back again. The staff, on the other hand, was fantastic. Everyone there is terrifically friendly -- too bad the food wasn't up to par.

The food was amazing for a very convenient prices. We did try the Alfredo classic pasta and a Alfredo Verdi, delicious!!! We didn’t expect find a restaurant like that in the Coney Island area. Feels very Italian. The place have a fancy atmosphere and very nice tables, but service is questionable; our server don’t have us real attention.

Awesome Stuffed Red Snapper!! Took my family of 6 here and they were amazed with the food! Joe, our waiter, was on point with his attentiveness and knowledge of the foods. Try the homemade cannolis, same guy making them for the past 50 years. Oh, and don’t forget, if you pick the right number from the Tombola, the entire table gets comped!!

Both food and service were fantastic-we asked our server to put together a sample of appetizers for the table and it was a great combination. Clams, eggplant, prosciutto/mozzeralla, seafood salad-all delicious.
Then followed by various wonderful entrees including red snapper, filet mignon, stuffed filet of sole and stuffed jumbo shrimp.
Would recommend Gargiiulo's to everyone.

If you like Chicken Cutlet Parmigiana, Gargulios is the place to get it. The food overall is second to none. Parties of 10 or less, are asked to chose a number between one and one hundred, at the end of the meal. Using a specific container, they draw a number, if it matches your number, the meal is on the house. There is a valet parking lot located directly opposite the restaurant. I highly recommend Gargulios.
