Our second time here. The food is the best. I got chicken parm and the chicken was moist and perfectly done. The Italian dressing and salad was great. This is not my go to restaurant for quality Italian! The server was attentive and very friendly. I wish I had gotten her name.

Took my Mom and Wife here for Mother's Day Brunch. Parents and kids enjoyed the breakfast items on the menu, wife enjoyed her pizza and I enjoyed the Italian House Speciality of ravioli, gnocchi, spaghetti and meatballs and a sausage. My only complaint, I dont like a chunky style sauce, but that's my pickiness. My wife said her bloody mary was delicious and my folks enjoyed the coffee.

I love Giammarco's and that is why I chose it for my Birthday dinner with family. I was super disappointed in the food but our server was wonderful. I almost felt bad for her because it wasn't her fault. I ordered the Penne Pusateri which is sausage, peppers and onions. The vegetables were raw! I have ordered this before so I knew this was not how it was supposed to be but I was going to eat around the raw onions anyways. My mom asked if they would remake it since it was my bday and this dish is the whole reason we came here.
Our server was obviously embarrassed. She had the kitchen remake it and told us the manager would come visit our table and we would get a free dessert.

Funny... the manager never came to talk to us, the peppers were still raw in my dish but at least the onions were cooked and we would already get a free dessert because it was my birthday. The second reason we came here was for the fried dough and caramel sauce. The dessert came out with raspberry and chocolate sauces only and no caramel (which is the only sauce I like with it). Needless to say I was super disappointed and frustrated with the experience. Probably the worst Birthday dinner ever but at least everyone else was happy with their meals.

We had a party of 6. Two of us ordered one of the featured drink specials and were later informed they did not have the ingredients to make. Two of us ordered dinner salads, one was delivered with no dressing. Of the the six entrees, one was a salad with blackened salmon which was served with grilled salmon, one was the veal Parmesan which was over cooked, dry and tasted like it sat under heat lamps but the worst was upon delivery of 5 of the 6 entrees, one of us who had ordered the eggplant Parmesan was informed they over cooked the dish and had no additional eggplant and offered the menu back to reorder. The surprising thing about the “run outs” was they we had an early (5:00) reservation. We will not be going back.

Excellent food and very good service. The night we were there they had multiple large parties which may have slowed things a bit. The noise level was still fine for conversation. My only complaint was that we were seated in a booth with an uncomfortable seat cushion. I will ask for a table next time.

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.

This was the first time I tried a salad for lunch at Giammarco's. It was not good; had large chunk of the core in the iceberg lettuce - no romaine at all.
The only reason that I would recommend this restaurance to a friend is because they do have very good olive oil bread dip and their pasta dish with bell peppers, onion, marinara sauce with spicy Italian sausage added was delicious in times past. Prices are high. We had reservations but still waited 20 minutes even though there were several vacant tables.

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.

They brought EVERYTHING out at the same time and just piled all this food on the table at once. They didn’t think anything was wrong with this or offer to do anything for us.

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.
