Always a great restaurant. We were initially seated next to the kitchen which was strange because we were there early and the restaurant was mostly empty. But they quickly accommodated our request to move without an issue and we had a nice night as always. The scallops were great. The food never disappoints.

The food and service at Giancarlo’s have always been excellent and my most recent visit was no exception. I had the grilled salmon salad at the recommendation of our server and it was perfect.

However, I had reserved a table in advance in the dining room for a business meeting, only to be told on arrival that the dining room was “closed”. The staff could not tell me why the dining room was closed. We were offered a table outside (too hot for me in a business suit) or a high top table (not comfortable, in my opinion) near the bar. I negotiated for a booth in the bar area, but was very disappointed that the dining room was unavailable. Had I known, I would have chosen a different day for our meeting.

The restaurant was very busy on the day we were there, and another party was seated next to us, limiting our privacy. We had to modify our discussion accordingly.

I did walk through the dining room to use the restroom before I left, and there were only two occupied tables. This added to my disappointment and frustration.

While this probably won’t prevent me from returning, I may book my business meetings elsewhere.

We visited Giancarlo's recently for our anniversary ; the menu offers a good range of choices in all areas (appetizers, starters and mains). We ate on the patio which was quite nice and sizable ; in the right weather, I would encourage asking for patio seating. Would recommend a reservation as the restaurant was very busy -- on a Wednesday night. Service was really top notch ; definitely a good choice for a relaxing meal for a special occasion.

It was a perfect afternoon to sit on the terrace.
The hostess was kind enough to find us a table that was shaded.
Zach was our server, and was efficient, pleasant and accommodating.
Food was, as always, terrific.

Beautiful day for outside covered patio which is discretely screened from adjacent parking lot. Had the specials. One was a fried cheese sandwhich where cheese was almost consistency of veal. Delicious. Service was very aware but not intrusive. $14 for a mixed drink a bit outrageous, but overall a great lunch.

My wife and I had dinner at Giancarlo's a couple of nights ago. We both started with their grilled octopus appetizer. It was very tender and very tasty. Some of the best we have ever eaten. Also we had their pork loin, which also was very good. It was served with a bean salad and some other sides that presented the Greek influence in the Campania region of Italy. The recommended red wine was also very good. Gluten free was not a problem

We go to this restaurant often, and usually I would give it a much higher rating. This was an early father's day dinner, so we were hoping for the usual excellent experience. But despite having a reservation, we were seated 30 minutes late. They seemed to have a large private party, which was clearly overwhelming their resources. It was also raining, so we believe people were staying much longer than usual at their tables (maybe). We ordered steaks, which are usually fabulous (as they should be for the price) and the au gratin potatoes, which are also usually extraordinary. 3/4 steaks were overcooked. The manager did come over to apologize and made it right. We will definitely go back, this was not the typical review I would have given...hopefully it was just an off day
