Went to the Gargiulo's Pizza Garden on Friday night and we could not be happier with the experience. The food was excellent, our waiter was very accommodating, even brining us some appetizers that we asked for that were not on the Pizza Garden menu. The setting is beautiful, it's like being on a mini vacation close to home. If you are looking for a good meal in the summer with a lovely garden atmosphere, this is the place to go!

As always the food at Gargulios is delicious. Not sure why the service was terrible. We waited over 45 mins for our appetizers. When we asked the owner he told us “don’t push your luck”. And he was “the boss”.
We also waited about a half hour for them to bring us the check.
Maybe because of Covid they are working out the kinks. 🤷🏼‍♀️

We had a party of six and everyone was extremely pleased with the food and service. We had the hot antipasto which was delicious , the mushroom and asparagus, the fish salad and the baked clams. We threw In an order of fried calamari too! Everything was extremely tasteful. Dinner consisted of broiled filet,shrimp racanati, penne pasqualina.
We were given plenty of time to relax between courses which we really appreciated. Desert was fruit sorbet served in real fruit shells, tiramisu, and cannoli. We even had after dinner drinks. The house was lovely and gave our table a big dish of complimentary fruit. I cannot remember the last time I had such a great night out. Everything was perfect. The food and service were impeccable and we hope to return soon.

Food was the usual, fabulous. But they did not have enough people working as the service was poor. Each individual person was good, but was very stressed. Took forever to get food and drinks, 2.5 hours for dinner total. Had to cancel our second drink because diner was over. Didnt bother having dessert. Will go again, gave them a one time coming out of covid excuse.

My mother wanted to have a great experience and they sure did live up to expectations. The staff was super polite, curious, respectfully giving us our pravicy but still maintaining eye contact checking in to see if everything was okay. The owner you can see going around from table to table checking in on all his customers. Now the food it just melts in your mouth even the bread is a must talk . My recommendations is the steak a must have. Well that takes care of my spectacular visit to this whole in the wall .Btw parking is right in front.

Mozzarella, Peppers, and Prosciutto appetizer was not that tasty, very bland. Would not recommend. Mozzarella in Carozzo needed a lemon caper sauce, did not cut it with just tomato sauce. Baked clams were good. Chicken Parmigiana was not that good. Best dish was the Penne Pasqualina.

Unfortunately, was put at a table near the kitchen door and bus station. Too busy and people constantly passing our table.

Server was excellent! Food was average. Went there for old times sake, but a bit disappointed.

The service was great! The restaurant was a bit noisy, so it was a little difficult to talk. The food was on the level of a decent Italian restaurant - not bad, but nothing to write home about.

What can’t I say about Gargiulos? It is one of our family’s favorite restaurants. We have shared so many occasions and grown up with the staff that they know most of our menu favorites before we even order! The food is always delicious and desserts even more so! If you’re looking for a delicious Italian meal, it is 100% worth heading over to Coney Island and enjoy all Gargiulos has to offer.

It’s been years since I’ve been there, and it was my mom’s first dinner out because of the pandemic, so this was a bit of a celebration for us. Everything was fantastic! The muscles appetizer was some of the best we’ve had. She had the eggplant rolatini appetizer as her meal and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the shrimp francese and my husband had a chicken entree - everything was great. And our server (Jerry?) was super friendly. We’ll definitely be back!

I went to Gargiulos reluctantly after having 3 previous mediocre experiences there.
The quality of the food has gone down in the last few years and the value is just not there. The waiter was cold and provided the minimum of service. I will not go back unless I have to. There are so many other great Italian restaurants in Brooklyn. I think Gargiulos is surviving on their once excellent reputation.

Loved the seating and was glad they had a full bar. The baked clams are the best choice under appetizers. This place makes a nice filet mignon. Over all I would recommend this place if you want a calm atmosphere to chill with family.

Had a lovely dinner with my elderly mother. Hostess greeted us as we came through the door, was helpful taking her walker while I assisted my mother up the stairs. She seated us without rushing anyone and did the same as we were leaving. My mother truly appreciated her not making a big deal.

Server was pleasant, attentive and efficient but not overbearing or intrusive. Dinner was delicious and unrushed. No pushing to turn the table over.

Quite a nice experience.
