Steakhouse
Our Sicilian Steakhouse is an original concept that celebrates the Sicilian-immigrant culinary experience. Referred to as the “original fusion cuisine,” Sicilian food is a historical mosaic influenced by the various conquering nations. Traces of Greece, North Africa, Rome, the Middle East, Germanic nations, France, Spain, and Italy are evident in traditional Sicilian cuisine. At Giancarlo’s, our love of history-rich Sicilian cuisine is combined with our interpretation of both the great American Steakhouse and the Neapolitan Pizzeria.

We can’t wait to return! Our food was amazing, the service was stellar, and we can’t stop talking about the experience. Robyn was our server. She was wonderfully attentive, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about her job. She is a gem!

Three of my family were there. Everything from the apps to dessert , and service were very good! But the piece of Delmonico steak I received was 1/3 grizzly. I did not complain as we were on a tight schedule, but if your paying $50 for a steak, it needs to be checked for quality. This was not marbling, but grizzle! I will not be returning.

I’m so glad I came back. The first experience was the same as last night, amazing. The food was so great. Dan was my server once again and he was great. I highly recommend you asking for him to enhance your night. Loved they had little fact cards about your servers

We loved everything about Giancarlos . We were warmly welcomed and led to their newly opened dining room . The dining room was open and more secluded . We had a nice table by the window and were told we would have Austin as our server. I loved the pacing of everything . The food was exceptional . We will definitely return to try the pizza .

We sat in the new room in the far back. White tablecloths and very serene atmosphere. Much less noisy than up front. Food and service was outstanding.

Not a single side with a $70 bone in rib-eye steak??? Very surprising for the price and it was over cooked. The mama’s meatball plates was excellent.

The waiter was great. My water was never empty. They made sure your dirty dishes were taken care of. The noise level was a little loud because it echoed. Will most definitely be back

Table was in a banquet/ meeting room not what I requested. The wine brought to the table was not The Angela Vineyards 2017 but a different bottle not on the menu. The wine substitute d was ok but the change was not discussed maybe they thought I would not notice. Food was ok but not 5 stars prices were high for Buffalo I expected better.

Nice dinner last night. We split the excellent veal parm. We were told that it did not come with pasta and were shocked that the bill showed a small bowl of past cost an additional $18. Really?

Overall, a very nice dinner but quite pricey.

I ordered the 16 oz dry-aged New York strip steak, cooked medium-rare at $60.00. It was the worst steak I've ever had. It was impossible to cut with the sharp-edged steak knife and equally impossible to chew. It was hard as a rock. I returned it and instead ate the Wild Mushroom Ravioli which was excellent. I was offered another steak, but at that point had lost all confidence in their ability to offer an excellent steak.
Nicole, the server, was excellent and she discounted the price of the steak. Overall the service was excellent, as was my wife's salmon, side dishes, and wine. But, given the experience with the steak, all my confidence in this restaurant has dissipated and I will not be returning.

We had a wonderful time celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary! Our table was ready when we got there. The cocktails were very good and the food was delicious. We did not feel rushed at all. Giancarlo’s had a few surprises for us which added to our celebration! We would highly recommend Giancarlo’s to all our friends and family!
