Proffessional servers who know exactly what they are doing whether it is assisting you with sitting, serving the menu, pouring the wine you provided, or answering questions about each menu item. The food is superb. This is your go- to sit down Italian Restaurant. I mean REAL Italian. No Olive Garden / Chain pretend Italian Food. Be prepared to wait for a table as this is a popular place. BYOB and often you can find coupons in local papers and flyers.

Don't allow the fact that Giardinello is located in a simple strip mall fool you. It's a top shelf eatery. Service is impeccable with each waiter treating their customer like royalty.
The BYOB only enhances your experience- this feature allows you to enjoy your favorite drink with an unforgettable meal. Every dish is prepared by world class chefs each leaving you with the feeling it was made just for you.
If you enjoy a great Italian meal make it a point to stop by for a savory experience that most high end Italian restaurants only dream of. Be prepared for a wait - most nights 1/2 hour or more is normal.
Come hungry - I'm certain you'll leave very happy!!
Bon Appetit

Excellent food, friendly wait staff. Relaxed-not rushed. Love eating here! Reservation only for large parties, the wait for a table is worth it. They also will do take out- nice option if they're Really busy.

Love to take our friends, to show off our lucky find that we have enjoyed for so many years! Pray it always stays the same. Some things don't need change. Enjoy!
