Italian
Nestled away on winding Gold Street in Manhattan's venerable Financial District, Giardino D'Oro is indeed a golden garden as its name translates. All that is charming about Italy comes to life as co-owners Benny Jakupaj and Nick Vuli welcome even newcomers with open arms. At Giardino D'Oro, food is indeed art with the fine Italian cuisine replete with antipasti, fresh rolled pastas, exquisite meat and seafood dishes, mouth-watering desserts, and an extensive wine list. Attentive yet discreet service in an intimate setting with strains of Sinatra softly crooning in the background set the scene for power lunches as well as romance.

One of my favorite places in the city. The food is amazing and the service even better. If Benny recommends something do yourself a favor and try it, you’ll be glad you did.

Hidden gem of Fidi! Benny and James are the ultimate hosts. I've never had a bad meal here. It's definitely on the pricier side, but worth it for a fine Italian meal.

Giardino D'Oro is one of the finest Italian restaurants in lower Manhattan, if not the entire city. I started with the organic green salad, which was lovely. I then had the rigatoni special (with eggplant, mushrooms and mozzarella) - it was amazing. I finished with tiramisu, which was one of the best that I've ever eaten. The service was topnotch and the dining room elegant yet comfortable. It's a little pricy, but definitely worth it for the first rate cuisine and service.

Booked a reservation for 2 on Valentines Day weeks in advance. We showed up on time and were offered a very nice table downstairs. However, that’s where the service ended. We sat with absolutely no attention, meaning no bread, no menu’s, no drink orders, no acknowledgement, nothing for 20 minutes. While the restaurant wasn’t empty, there was still open tables.

After waiting 20 minutes for someone to acknowledge we were there, we decided to leave. We went upstairs and advised the manager and hostess of what had occurred. To make matters worse, we received an excuse that they are busy. Really? That’s it?! Busy? The manager had a chance to try and make it right, but instead chose to make an excuse for inexcusable service.

We walked directly across the street to Harry’s Pizza Bar, with no reservations and they accommodated us without hesitation. We had great service and a great dinner at Harry’s Pizza Bar.

We will never go back to Giardino’s. However, we visited Harry’s Pizza Bar again on 2/15/2020.

We were not informed that there was no other choice than a $89 meal on Valentines Day. The waiter was not forthcoming and helpful. There was an ongoing draft in the restaurant.
