The food was delicious. There are vegetarian options one vegan option which is the avo toast. I would have loved to have seen a pasta dish with garlic, capers, fresh basil and lemon zest for those who need to avoid dairy but love pasta! My husband had the buffalo chicken pizza, I had the avo toast. The wine was delicious. The expresso was phenomenal! The service was perfect, great staff!

Our food was very good and our service was decent overall. Other than a needed decor update of the standard dining area (to keep up with the more "hip" bar area) our experience was return worthy! I would definitely recommend it to friends!

Went there with 3 other ladies for a birthday dinner. They can print out special birthday menus, which is such a nice touch!!! They also give a free dessert to the birthday person. So nice...and delicious!!! Service is amazing and food is really good. My only complaint is the noise level. The acoustics are really bad. Sound just bounces off the wood floors, walls, ceiling and you can’t hear the person next to you.

One of the top restaurants in the Buffalo area. Consistently good across a lot of items. Homemade pasta makes for great options and the steak and seafood are top notch. Service is excellent and the desserts are excellent overall.

The only demerit I'd give is the value. Dishes are 'appropriately' sized but the price/value equation vs other top restaurants is somewhat lacking. Example: They are a better value than Tempo and not as good a value as the Trattoria Aroma group.

Still, a great special occasions place and location and overall decor and ambiance are excellent.

We recently went to Giancarlo's for the second time. Unfortunately, they had removed their delicious lobster mac and cheese from the menu; we were returning to the restaurant because of that dish. My husband and I shared the calamari appetizer and it was very mediocre. The calamari was bland and the sauce tasted like cheap marinara from a jar without any spices at all. Entrees were better - my husband loved the braised ragu tortelloni and I enjoyed the seafood risotto. There were only two scallops, cooked perfectly, and a few small shrimp that didn't have much flavor. The risotto itself was above average.

We were seated in a small room in the back next to a very loud group of people, which distracted from the experience. The service was fine, not outstanding by any means. We will probably return to Giancarlo's again but not soon.

We arrived a little late for our reservation and had to wait about 15 more mins for the table. While we waited we had really no where to hang out since the front area with the bar was occupied by a private party. Table service was very good, however one of the two pizzas we ordered was burnt. Waited about 15 minutes for dessert; not sure why.

First, the food is always amazing! Our bartender, Elliott, was truly delightful! Very knowledgeable, quite the mixologist, and engaging. Our initial drink set the stage for the balance of the evening. The service was great, it was just a little loud seated in the ‘bar side’ of the restaurant. Enjoy your experience! Laurie

Food was ok as far as taste. The crab cake was soggy, steak was very good. Gnocchi portion size was very small. Pizza was great.
Our server had no idea what he was doing. Wrote everything down wrong, forgot many items. The food runners were bringing me my steak before I even had all the appetizers I ordered. Server asked us 3 times if we wanted coffee but never offered the dessert menu. Bread came 15 minutes after our order was taken. Water was not refilled unless asked, table wasn't cleared of empty plates . Just the entire flow of things was off. For the price of the food and drinks service should be flawless.

I thought it was very overpriced. I feel you can go to Texas Roadhouse or Longhorn and get the piece of steak you got here for the same price but it would include your sides. I didn't like that you had to pay extra for your sides. You didn't even get a salad with dinner. I will never go back-I'm glad I had a gift card.
