Our reservation was honored quickly and service was great! Many daily specials were offered in addition to the menu. Quality and authenticity of the food were excellent. Hope to return soon!!

I hope they were just having an "off" night. The food is typically very good, but this particular night, the service was incredibly slow, our dinner took forever to come out, my filet mignon was overcooked, and my wife found a small gnat in her salad. The owner is incredibly kind, and despite the trouble we encountered, we'll go back again.

It was my wife’s birthday. Food was great and we had a good time; however, the service was a little slow. Not many people were there.

The food is exceptional. And even though the singer had a lovely voice it made it hard to carry on a conversation. In spite of that, it’s a great place to go and our guests said they would love to go back.

This place is our favorite for great Italian food! They consistently serve excellent quality food and the service is flawless. It’s very popular so it’s always busy there, but we’ve never had problems with immediate seating. (Make a reservation!) The only problem is choosing from the many nightly specials along with an already broad menu. The portions are huge and we always have a great meal there. They’re open for lunch too!

Hi It was our 27th anniversary and I had put that down when I made the reservation and nothing was ever said or done. :( So I guess I was hoping our sever had been told.

The food is always amazing our server was just ok she didn't really seem like she wanted to be there.

We will be back.

Food is consistently good. The music and singing is too loud to the point you can't have a conversation. Would love if they would change their iced tea. Not sure what they use but the water is good so it can't be the water. Water very friendly and staff was as well.

This is the 2nd time my wife and I have been to this Restaurant, once again the food and service were excellent, I've already told my children that we have to take them here. We're also thinking of taking our friends that will be visiting from New York there as well. We had Pizza the 1st time that was perfectly cooked and the last time we had a seafood special and one of their chicken dishes that was wonderful, i highly recommend this Restaurant to anyone who enjoys excellent Italian cuisine .

This is a good family oriented restaurant with an extensive menu and lots of specials. We had scallops and steak. Both were prepared nicely and served hot. Inside and outside seating. A busy spot on a Saturday night but no wait to get in using Open Table the day of the meal. Check it out.

The food and service are both amazing, the ONLY negative thing I have to say about the experiences I've had is the ambient noise level is far too high at times.

It's not the fault of the establishment, they have a live singer who's volume is very bearable and enjoyable, the problem stems from patrons trying to talk over one another resulting in a very loud room.

People can't seem to control their volume and enjoy the music.

That being said, I will still be going back.

This is a great local Italian restaurant! The service is always excellent, the food fresh, and they typically have low key live (intimate) music during dining. With local musicians, great food and stellar service, Garibaldi does not disappoint.

The food and wait staff are always fantastic here! We had a new (in training) waiter and he was very good. My only criticism of dining here is that it is a bit noisy with background noise from all the other tables. This normally does not bother me; however, it was a challenge to hear my older parents sitting across the table from me.

This was our first visit and we were very pleased. we had a 7PM reservation and though the restaurant was very busy, our table was open and ready for us. We were a table of 4 to celebrate my wife's birthday. Our food was great, service was very good and attentive and they treated my wife to a very nice desert for her birthday. We will definitely return to enjoy another night of fine Italian food.

Great food with a lot of choices. Daily specials can be pricey but quality is outstanding. Service is always friendly and courteous. Only negative I could come up with would be the seating itself...some seating is not comfortable, especially on the bench seat along middle partition.
