Went to Gargiulo's for a Christmas season get together. The restaurant was decorated beautifully for Christmas, so festive. The food and drinks were very good. My dining companions and I were all happy with our choices. The service was excellent. My only complaint was that with the pandemic going on, I would of hoped the tables would of been spaced out a bit more. But, I understand it's holiday season, so sometimes that can't be helped. Overall, it was a wonderful evening and a wonderful way to celebrate the season!! Gargiulo's never disappoints!!

Food was very good, but we were disappointed that they do not serve pasta with the entrées without an up charge! It’s an Italian restaurant they should serve pasta with the meal, if you want the potato you could switch it out! Pasta is so cheap! We will go back, the food was very good.

I went for my one year dating anniversary. You need to be well dressed. No shorts or sweatpants. They check your vaccine status when you walk in. It was very spaced out and felt very safe. The food was really good there too. I definitely recommend the baked cheese ravioli. It was amazing. Overall, it’s expensive but so worth it. I’ll def be back again.

Did not say on website when making reservation that we needed vaccination proof. We are from out of state and everyone in the party did not have handy.

Very loud and tables packed in very tightly.

Service was good. Food was good.

Staff always welcoming and friendly. Love the food choices never disappointed …they make the perfect Vodka Negroni.
Great place to dine on a date, with family, friends, or celebrate. The food is consistently delicious. The risotto is a must try and the mozzarella appetizer with mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes…yum!
Bravo to the chef and kitchen staff.
Family pride goes into all they do.
