Dining experience was Excellent! However the only issue is that even with a reservation and arriving early we waited 25 minutes past our reservation time. I watched others come in and get seated right away even after my scheduled reservation time. I am sure people were seated ahead of us that were not supposed to be.

Exceptional. My daughter needed a gluten free meal. We thought Giancarlos had a gluten-free pizza. We were told wrong. Michael came over and together they created a gluten free pasta with the mushrooms she had wanted...it was wonderful. Thank you.

I had a dinner with some co-workers. It was my 3rd time eating there. We ordered some cocktails to start. I got some sort of version of a a fancier malibu rum with pineapple and it was delicious. The Giancarlo’s mule was also very good, like a fruit punch... dangerous! Food was very good. We all ordered a bowl of the sicilian onion soup. It was very good, but a bowl was too much, a cup would have been sufficient. The filet was delicious. I ordered mine cooked medium and it was so tender and perfectly cooked. We ordered the brussel sprouts, au gratin potatoes and mushroom risotto as sides. I was not a big fan of the risotto, but the others like it. We all got desserts, but I ordered mine to go, the carrot cake. It was pretty good, even though I ate it the next day. I would definitely eat there again, and get the filet. One if the best filets I have had in Buffalo.

They took about 30 mins to seat us regardless of our already made reservation. The table was still unclean when we finally arrived to it. The menu had drips of sauce of it and the utensils were still dirty. We order appetizers which took awfully long (25 minutes) and we ordered entrees, that took about 45 minutes to come. The waiter was no where to be found most of the time. I had to ask the bust boys for assistance most of the time. This was the worst service I have ever had, the restaurant is too great looking to have a poor service such as this! They realized their mistakes and told me everything was on the house. That’s the only time they had shown professionalism. The damage had already been done. I don’t recommend this place at all.

Food was delicious. Overpriced for the amount of food we received. Waitress wasn't very attentive and forgot one of our dishes and never brought it. Then we got the check and was charged for it. She did take it off with our cheapest appetizer as well but not sure if we will return again.

Appetizers-tasty
Filet mignon-best
Desserts all made at restaurant and decadent!

We did not feel that the quality of the food was on par with the price of the food. I got Chicken Parmesan and although it was a large piece of chicken it was pretty thick and somewhat dry because it was so thick. A very, very SMALL portion of spaghetti. I do not like anything SWIMMING in sauce but I actually had to ask for MORE sauce on the side because the spaghetti was almost like eating just NAKED NOODLES! Also, a very unusual sauce, it was ORANGE as opposed to a traditional RED SAUCE. Our waitress, Chelsey was extremely PLEASANT!!!

Giancarlo's was everything I hoped it would be and more. I made a reservation for my birthday weekend and I was running late due to a previous activity with my group. We called and they were happy to push our time slot back instead of cancelling our reservation. The kitchen was supposed to close at 9pm, and we arrived at 9pm. Even though it was quitting time for the staff, they never showed it. Our meal was as fantastic as it would have been if we were the first customers through the door. Our server was energetic and engaging, even though it was late in the evening. The crab crusted salmon was the best salmon I've EVER had! The shrimp were large and juicy, the drinks were perfect...I couldn't have asked for a better birthday dining experience. Kudos to the staff that was there on the evening of February 3rd, 2018; YOU GUYS ROCK!

Food would have been much better if our steaks came out the way we ordered them. Both my medium well steak and my husband's medium rare steak appetizer came out well done. The sides with my steak were cold so they didn't taste good, I didn't end up eating the sides only the steak. My husbands chicken wrap was dry. The service waa good though

Over priced for quality of the food. Piazza was burnt, and the lobster rolls was to have kettle chips but came with large bowl of crushed regular potato chips. We also ordered the small plate meatballs and was asked if we wanted spaghetti with them. When bill came we were charged for a full dinner entree which I felt was the waitress jacking up the bill.

I had been to this restaurant once before on a business lunch and enjoyed it, so I wanted to visit it for a quiet dinner with my wife. We loved it. The service, both the hostess and the waitress, were very friendly and efficient. The food was terrific. The restaurant also has a great ambiance, which feels upscale, but not dressy or stuffy. We really enjoyed our evening and will definitely be back.

The salmon with crab was outstanding! The atmosphere was upscale/trendy although we though the video screens with ads and pictures of food were odd. I has a Giancarlo's mule and it tasted like luden's cherry cough syrup and I couldn't drink it because it was too sweet but our server was outstanding and he offered to bring me something else. We will definitely be back!

We had a fabulous time. Emily had special menus made just for the birthday boy! He loved it.
All the dishes were very tasty. My tortellini was very tough and I couldn't not eat them. The beef/pork ragu sauce was very good though! The calamari was the best we've had anywhere!
They gave us a delicious piece of chocolate cake with ice cream for the birthday celebration. Overall a very special night. Service was outstanding. !!
