We always love the food there. Their veal Parmesan is awesome, as are there homemade pastas and the marinara sauce is incredible. My wife loves the Alfredo, so fresh. Great bread and dipping oil, warm, fresh with a nice crunch. Sometimes the service is a bit iffy, but never enough to ruin the experience; more often it’s solid. A great choice for authentic Italian.

The manager was rude. He said we had a 45 minute wait and did not care that we had open table reservations.
He was not helping any of the staff. When the owner came in he started to bus tables . I understand that he was the owners brother.

It was our daughters birthday and we had a group of 7. Everyone got their food except my husband. It came out after everyone else was finished eating. They comped his dinner but it ruined the festive feel of the night as we all felt badly eating in front of him.

Food is always great! The bread is so fresh and keeps the kids busy. Great place to go to feel like you’re still getting An adult dinner out thanks to the vibe and live Music.

Our server was a little slow and non responsive but she was a young girl so we didn’t get upset. The rest of there staff that helped us was great though.

Pretty expensive for a family of 5 but food is worth it. The kids even loved all three of their picks from the kids menu. We were charged for kids milks which usually comes with the meal so that was strange but overall, highly recommend!

This was our first time at Giammarco’s. We sat at the high tops by the bar. We absolutely loved the feel of the restaurant. Our server was awesome, and the food was absolutely amazing. You could tell they put a lot of effort into making everything homemade. I kept telling my husband how the food genuinely reminded me of being back in Rome. The staff will wait on you hand and foot, and just wants to make sure you have a great experience while there. We will absolutely be back and hope to bring our entire family.

PS. Try to Cannoli to finish out your meal. You will NOT be disappointed.

We enjoy dinner in The Grotto section because you can view a game on the TV's and also enjoy music, if a performer happens to be there!

We made a reservation for 7pm hours in advance. Still had to settle for a tabletop in the bar because no dinning room or bar booths were available. It was our waitress's first night and that needs to happen on a week night, not at prime time on a weekend! Food took too long to come out and we got it to go.
