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.

    Quiet little gem of a place, feel like you are in a movie. Food and service were excellent. Valentino showed us the utmost attention from the moment we walked in, he is a true professional and makes you feel like a VIP. The music is perfect, Sinatra, Como, Martin…added to the atmosphere.

    Wonderful and accommodating place in downtown to have a business meeting, with great food and a welcoming atmosphere. Our party expanded from 5 to 7 and the kind staff immediately accommodated us without any issues. My spaghetti carbonara was great, and everyone at the table enjoyed their meals and appetizers. Even the bread delivered, which many restaurants overlook, great bread.

    Watch out for the up-sale on the pasta woth truffles. Turned a $25 pasta dish into $85 “open ticket” charge. Some many above average Italian no need to settle for this trap.

    We selected Giardino D'Oro based on OpenTable reviews, and we're so glad we did. Everything about our dining experience was enjoyable. The food was great, service was fantastic, and the restaurant itself was lively and fun. This will be our go-to place for Italian cuisine in the Financial District.

    Giardino D'Oro in New York City is an epitome of culinary grace and elegance. Tucked away in the city's bustling landscape, this gem offers more than just a meal—it promises an unforgettable dining journey. The atmosphere strikes a perfect balance between opulence and comfort, setting the stage for any special occasion or memorable night out. Our evening was made truly exceptional by not one, but two outstanding waiters—James and Valentino. James' expertise on the menu and wine pairings was as invaluable as it was enlightening. His attention to detail, from the appetizers to the desserts, was meticulous. On the other hand, Valentino brought an unparalleled level of charisma and charm to the table. His flair for creating a welcoming atmosphere was perfectly matched by his keen sense of timing and service. The synergy between James and Valentino was palpable, each complementing the other's style seamlessly, ensuring that our dining experience was flawless from start to finish. It was like watching a well-choreographed dance where each waiter knew just when to step in and take the lead. The cuisine itself was a masterpiece. Each dish seemed to transcend the last in terms of flavor and presentation. Whether it was the perfectly al dente pasta, the delectably fresh seafood, or the sinfully indulgent desserts, every bite was a celebration of culinary artistry. In conclusion, Giardino D'Oro is not just a restaurant; it's a sublime experience for all the senses. With the incredible team of James and Valentino at the helm of service, and a menu that rivals any Michelin-starred establishment, this place is an absolute must-visit for anyone looking to dine in New York City.

    We enjoyed a lovely meal in this Financial District restaurant. We enjoyed branzino, Chilean Sea Bass and Veal Saltamboca as our main courses. The fish were both specials and perfectly prepared. The veal was wrapped around the cheese and in a delicious brown gravy. The cheese, peppers and salami served with the bread was a great way to start the meal with our drinks. Beautiful dessert tray with a wide selection. The zecchino (cream and mousse) was a particularly delicious dessert, something I had never enjoyed before. Overall a lovely experience.
