Every visit gets better than the last. Love Giancarlo's and will continue to drive 3 hours for the best Italian food I have ever had! When you go... sit at the bar and watch the magic happen. It amazes me watching the chefs be so in sync with one another.... its perfection at its finest.

We ate here when visiting friends who live in the area. The restaurant is conveniently located on one of the main streets in MB. Our meals were good and they had a nice selection of local wines. We found this restaurant to be a little expensive, but we had a nice night out, here.

Tried this restaurant about two years ago and found it to be very adequate. This time I was blown away. GC's Bistro (new name) had just been completely remodeled inside and it is beautiful!! I used a voucher I found on Travel Zoo that included two entrees, and appetizer, along with two glasses of wine. Loren was our server and... More

Beautiful hammered copper tables, indoor grilling, pizza oven, the works. Great food, atmosphere, and service. Don't miss out on a chance to see what great food looks and tastes like. GC is a culinary artist, and you will see what i mean, when you order the surf and turf.

This is an incredible bistro. I recommend it to anyone who loves the very best food. The food arrives at your table, beautifully plated, like its a work of culinary art. This place just got a full remodel, and it is amazing. Don't miss stopping in here whenever you're in Morro Bay.

This was one of the best dinning experiences my wife and I had. Spaghetti carbonara is really excellent as was the sea bass. We loved the coppertop tables. The place was clean and very friendly. It was our first time at Giancarlo's and we will be back.

This place is now called GC's Bistro at Gincarlo's. We showed up about 20 minutes after they opened for lunch and 1 hour and 15 minutes later we finally got our bread and salads. There was one waitress on staff who tried like heck but she was very much over taxed. We had a DealSaver Coupon which claimed a value... More

We have been eating in Morro Bay, as well as, all over the Central Coast area since 1979. Without a doubt, tonight's meal was the best ever. Friendly, warm service, started the night off. We sat at the bar, which gives you the opportunity to see the chef prepare your meal. Felt like we where at a friends house, enjoying... More
