    Weird night but I would return. Inside was a little noisy for a business discussion so we got a nice table outside on a beautiful night. We were assigned a very nice waitress who had a great personality but could not deliver anything quickly or accurately. A glass of wine took forever. I ordered a salad appetizer which never arrived. I was told certain vegetables came with my meal which were incorrect. Two of us ordered Salmon cooked different temperatures. We each got the others but too late after we had started eating. Good news was good quality was excellent, just two out of three got mixed up. Service was extremely attentive but I would have just assumed we saw her less and got our food and drinks quickly and correctly.

    Our waiter was Nick. He was very efficient and brought the food out at the times that we requested.. However, when it came to getting the bill at the end of the evening, it took an extraordinary amount of time to receive the bill. The music was very pretty, but the noise level was really too high in order to have have a dinner conversation without yelling at each other. This was our 4th visit to your wonderful restaurant and we will be back.

    This is the third time we have been here for dinner with a reservation and waited over 30 minutes after being seated with no one to greet us or take a drink order. Each time we have had to flag someone down and “recruit” them to be our server. All three of these times we also were not just given bread and oil - we had to specifically request it. This time we waited 30 minutes and finally were able to flag someone down to wait on us. Didn’t get anything to drink until 45 min. After being there. Never got any water, which was fine because the water glasses were dirty. As were the tables and the wall next to the booth we were at. The food was mediocre. The salmon and the chicken parm were good - the ravioli was okay, and the beef tips were flavorless. I did like the music playing and the creme brulee martini. I have given this place opportunity after opportunity but it has not met expectations time and time again. It will probably be a long while before we are back.

    The service was slow, which could be due to staff shortages. I ordered the fettuccine Alfredo and it was overly rich. They charge a whopping $8 for chicken. My husband ordered the clam linguini and felt it was okay but not worth the cost. The restaurant is outdated and needs some updating. There was live music that sounded more like Karaoke. They sat us right behind the speaker so we couldn’t even talk to each other.

    Food was good, chicken Milanese came on a large salad which was a suprise. Lobster ravioli was very good. It was a busytime, service was good but not great. It was quite noisy. Back of booth wobbled so that when the people behind moved, I. Bounced around. Quite annoying

    As always, great food. Large portions at a reasonable price. Went on a Monday evening and it was not crowded. Great atmosphere for a dinner with the family. Something for the kids who aren’t adventurous with their food choices as well.

    Celebrating my wedding tonight and the service was terrible. I left in tears. Waited 15 minutes before I was even offered warm water and 30 before I could get my wine. I’ve never had such a terrible experience ever.

    This was our first time eating at Garibaldi and we are glad we tried it out. We were seated quickly and drink orders were taken shortly thereafter. We really liked the way it was decorated on the inside, very cozy. Our waiter did a great job, he was able to answer questions about the menu, kept our glasses full, but didn't over do it by asking every 5 minutes if we needed anything (I can't remember his name..sorry). When our drinks came out bread and olive oil came with it also, we were not expecting the bread, but it was warm and good. The olive oil was very mild, it was good, but didn't have the strong taste of olive oil that you typically get. We ordered the fried mozzarella as an appetizer, it was so good and you could tell they made their marinara sauce in house because there were big pieces of tomato in it which made it even better. For our entree's my wife ordered the rigatoni rustco and I had the lasagna. The food came out VERY fast and was piping hot. The portions were HUGE. I could only eat about 1/3 of my meal and had to take the rest home. The lasagna was a little different (for me) in that there wasn't much sauce but a whole lot of cheese, I love cheese so this was great for me. My wife really enjoyed her rigatoni also. We had one other surprise for us....live entertainment. A lady started singing around 6pm, just soft romantic music which just added to the nice atmosphere. We don't know if this is a nightly thing or just on Friday nights, but regardless, we enjoyed it very much. Garibaldi is another hidden gem in the area that we intend on visiting again sometime.

    This was our first time back since March 2020, and it was excellent. My daughter had penne alla vodka and I knew she wouldn’t like pancetta, but because everything is made fresh, to order, she was able to omit the pancetta and her dish was amazing. My chicken parm was perfect as well. We loved our service, Noelle, she was so thoughtful, and really upbeat. We can’t wait to come back!

    This is both mine and my wife’s favorite restaurant. We have been there several times and even have ordered through Uber Eats. We decided to share this restaurant with our family. To the person a common comment was “that every thing was delicious…everything “. The service is always great. The regular menu items are very good but be sure to ask about the specials. These are hidden gems. We look forward to our next visit.

    I have to say it was a disappointing experience. First, when I came in, the hostess was surprised that I had a reservation. When I said it was on Open Table, she spoke with the manager and the. Seated us. The restaurant was not busy. It still took awhile to get service.

    We were seated immediately and the wait staff was extremely accommodating especially since we had young children with us. Although everyone ordered their meal at the same time, the children's meals came out first. And, our choices were hot and enough to take home for another meal.

    We went out post-Valentine's Day to avoid the crowds but, Garibaldi was still pretty busy for a Sunday night. Reservations were a good call. I had a lamb chop special and my hubby had a veal dish. Food was fantastic and exactly as ordered. Our waitress was great and attentive. The only downside was the price of the lamb chops were a bit over priced and the host/hostess stand seemed a bit overwhelmed. Once seated, we were very happy we chose to go to Garibaldi. Enjoy!

    Valentine’s Day so very busy. That made space a little tight and noise a little high. But service, timing, wait, and food were excellent.
