All the food has such wonderful flavor. The Parmesan Garlic Bread is outstanding!!! Only bad thing is we fill up on appetizers/dinner and don’t have room for dessert.

I would not recommend booking with this restaurant on open table. We showed up, and even though we had a confirmed email and showed our reservation confirmed in the app, they would not seat us. However, they did seat a party of 4 that also did not have a reservation. They told us they could accomodate us if we were finished and paid in 45 min. Really was a shame as we were so looking forward to our reservation as it was our anniversary! Big Thumbs Down for disappointment!

I am a bit of a food snob and this is one of the best places I’ve eaten In Washington. We live about 45 minutes away and make the drive because it’s so delicious.

As usual the food and service were excellent.
LeeAnn and Joe are such gracious hosts, and they make the patrons feel like guests in their home.
Looking forward to our next meal at their restaurant.

Delicious food! Fantastic service!
Portion sizes are HUGE and a great price as well! I got 3 meals out of my dinner.
Very conscience and respectful of food allergies and dietary restrictions! So happy to see that there is a GF Tiramisu option!

The prices were a little high for what you get compared to restaurants in other towns. The gnocchi was disappointing because it was just little chopped up pieces of pasta rather than being formed correctly. If an Italian restaurant can't form gnocchi they should be ashamed. Other than that everything tasted good. We'll probably go back but I doubt it will be our go-to Italian restaurant.

They have a well balanced menu with pasta, meat, and fish dishes. The food is of a very high quality and the service is terrific. The only negative is that they need a bigger space.

We were lucky to find an available reservation in Open Table. The food was delicious. It’s a very small quaint restaurant with about 14 tables. Large wine selection. Small selection of bottled beer. Would definitely recommend and look forward to returning. Authentic Italian food. You won’t be disappointed.

Yes! I love this little Gem, I wish they had more floor space. There is usually a wait even with reservations. And if you're seated the front as people are popping in and out of the tiny vestibule on a chilly night it gets really drafty and quite distracting to have people queuing up right behind your chair as you eat.

I've lived here on the East Side for 11 years now. I've seen Gianfranco many times and have wanted to eat there for a long time. I've heard god things about it but always that it's a little pricey. The price wasn't that bad. I had the stuffed pork and my wife had the Halibut special, both were good but not great. There were some good deals on wine, you could go relatively inexpensive to some pretty nice wines. In all I feel the value is good.

I didn't feel the service was all that great though. Again, it was adequate. The place is small. I'm not sure how many servers were on but it appeared to me that there was one server, one server assistant and one busser. It was pretty busy and so our server had just enough time to greet us, take our order and be gone. It seemed to me that we had more contact with the assistant than with our server. Again not bed we were served but there really wasn't any warmth to the whole ambiance. I just think I may need to go back and try some of the more basic dishes, maybe I'll have better luck?

Great place for night out. Food quality is outstanding, cooked as ordered. Unless you are a big eater
pasta portions leave enough for another meal at home. They make a great martini if that is your pleasure.
Any thing you order is great. You will enjoy.

Love Gianfranco and this was our second visit. The service is good and the food is over the top great! Be prepared to take half of it home as the portions are quite large. Will definitely be back. Reservations are highly recommended.

My husband had the smoked salmon pasta which was very good. Portions are large and we had for lunch the next day. I had the streak which was cooked to perfection.
Also, personal service is great.
We have eaten here before and will definitely go back.
