Service terrific but the food was just average. Wedding soup was room temperature, and the only soup available.

Our party of four was escorted to sit in the bar area. There was live music and there was several tables seated. We sat and waited nearly 20 minutes with no service, no acknowledgement and multiple staff walking by us but no one stopped. Finally our server appeared... took our drink order asked if we knew what we wanted to eat... we placed our dinner order as well as an order fir two subs that were fir carry out fir lunches the next day.... and she walked away. Over 10 minutes later the server appeared with our salads but no drinks nor the bread and oil that we had asked for. Our salads were gone before she appeared with our drinks... nearly 30 minutes from arrival till we finally got our drinks!!! A different server shows up with a bag with our carry out order but nothing else. Several minutes pass and finally another staff member appears with two of our dinners but nothing for the other two people in our party who ordered the special of the night and another that ordered fettuccini Alfredo. After another 25 minutes one of us went to find a manager to figure out why we hadn’t received our other two dinners... she had no clue.. and only stated that she “ would check”. By now there was 3 tables that arrived after us and had eaten and left and yet still no sight of the other two meals. Finally the arrival of the other two dinners IN to go boxes!!! They consumed them at the table in the to go boxes!! Our server comes to the table and drops the bill and doesn’t return. After nearly 2 hours plus we finally flagged down another member of the staff to pay our bill.... worse experience ever!!!

On one of the busiest nights of the year (Valentines Day), Giammarco’s and staff operated seamlessly. The food was wonderful and the service was exceptional. We will definitely be back!!

I love our outings to Giamarco's. The store is always clean, fresh and filled with delicious aromas. The food and service are consistently good and consistent with a comfortable Italian family dining experience.

We regularly visit. This was a “ Valentine’s Day Dinner” & we were introducing a friend to this restaurant & she absolutely loved it & is already making plans to bring her family. This definitely is at the top of our list. We love Giammarcos. The staff is always top notch & the food is definitely in point.

Food was very good. (we moved here from Jersey where there's LOTS of good Italian restaurants, so we feel like we're qualified to judge!) Our party of 5 had 5 different entrees: chicken parm, stromboli, house veggie pizza, can't remember the other two but good enough to enjoy and take home extra. Side salads (caesar and garden) were tasty and appropriately sized--and bowls were big enough to house them, unlike many other places) Complimentary bread w/ olive oil and spices--warm and tasty. Nice ambiance, though lights could be a touch dimmer. Sierra was our server and was very pleasant and attentive. We reserved only an hour ahead on a Saturday night, and no wait. (glad for us; sorry for them!)

Our special request was not honored or even known by the reservationist--she said that it was not communicated to the restaurant from Open Table; don't know if that is a true statement or not, just what she said.
Noise level was terrible. There was a live band in the bar, but no way to lower the noise level--the player thought he was still outside. Could not talk. There were two tables of 8 people next to each other (same party) and they were "talking" between tables. Add those two noise sources together, and we had a terrible experience.
Our waitress was also serving those two large tables, along with another small one---she had way too many tables. Not a good night.

The atmosphere and food at Giamarcos’s are always the best. We knew New Year’s Eve would be a busy night everywhere but our waiter was very attentive and made sure everything was just right. It was also a birthday celebration for one of the members of our party and they made that special too.

We took our teenage daughters here for the first time on NYE. The meals were delicious and the service was great! We started with the pizza pillows, which were delicious. Airy little pieces of pizza dough fried and served with excellent marinara sauce! And it was a huge portion, we didn’t think we would eat all of them, but we did 😊
The kids shared a pepperoni and cheese Stromboli, which they loved and devoured!
My husband and I each got a penne dish. I ordered the Penne Vodka and had blackened chicken added. The sauce was amazing, so flavorful! My husband ordered the Penne Giammarco
with the hot sausage, which was also very tasty.
They were out of the 2 desserts we wanted to try, Tiramisu and I forgot the other (lol) so we opted to try the Cannoli, which was very good.
This was our first trip here, and definitely won’t be our last!

This was our second visit to Giammarco's within a month, because it was a hit the first time around. The second time was very good, but the service seemed to be a bit slow. The restaurant was packed with diners, so that contributed to the longer wait times. But the restaurant was also out of Chianti that night, and no Tiramasu for dessert. Those were disappointments. But the food is still great! My sister ordered the meat lasagne again, because it's so good. We would probably return, but maybe not on Thursday night.
