Giardinetto's was the first non-hotel restaurant I dined at when I moved to Brisbane in 1993. We have dined there often since then and last January was a special occasion (a retirement). Of course I had what I have always liked at this restaurant: pizza! It was GOOD! Recommended for any pizza lover.

50 years old thinking well it cant be bad its been there for 50 years, its not bad but its not great and well the most disappointing was the staff so under dressed, wearing a t shirt and a dirty one at that.

I went for a Garlic Feast, & got what I wanted. Garlic Bread; Garlic Prawns; & Seafood Marinara, each enjoyed with Ghianti. My only complaint? I haven't been able to get back their yet.

Have been to Giardinetto many times over the decades - for the first time was decidedly disappointed tonight (a Monday night). It just felt "cheap". We'd booked in advance - yet we had to squeeze in tight against another couple, even though the place was a quarter full. Big sign on the wall - "cash only". Seriously? $178 for 4... More

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday Night we were six people and one of the first to arriveat 6.30pm. We ordered our meals at about 6.45pm after drinks and then people started to come in, that was a good sign. We all had different meals, well cooked and the staff we great and not very expensive

We started with ciabatta with oil and balsamic to dip,and the baby octopus with pesto. I had Marinara pizza and my partner had a chicken pasta dish. We shared Cassata Della Casa to finish.... More
