We were visiting the States recently and I made reservations at Giancarlo's. So glad I did. When we arrived, on a Thursday night, it was really hopping. So many people waiting for tables, which is always a good sign. You can eat in the bar side, which looked great... lots of people having a good time. We reserved in the dining room side. To start we had the calamari fritti, and it was exceptionally good. You could taste the freshness. My husband and I generally order calamari, so on our first taste we both looked at each other and said, wow, this is really good. They also serve very fresh bread with herbed butter, but also a roasted red pepper, garlic, olive oil. Nice touch. For entrees I had the petite filet mignon with a side of roasted wild mushrooms. It was quite amazing. Cooked to perfection. My husband had the braised ragu tortellini and loved it. He said it was totally authentic, which is sometimes hard to find. The staff and service here really is second to none. Runs seamlessly. Very happy to have found Giancarlo's. This is where we will be when we are in the area.

Had a luscious brick oven mushroom pizza, accompanied by an antipast plate...delightful cheeses & meats...very Sicilian. Although the place is extremely noisy we enjoyed the meal. Had a great bourbon manhatten while my husband savored his craft beer.

This restaurant is busy and there is good reason for that. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. This visit we had the chicken parmigiano, Margherita pizza, arancini, mama's meatball and chicken carbonara. All entrees had generous portions and were accompanied with a basket of bread with a herbed butter and a roasted red pepper, garlic and olive oil toppings. The desserts with the exception of Gelato and sherbet are freshly homemade on the premises. Our waiter Andrew provided excellent service while the restaurant manager Mike warmly greeted and attended to his guests. Valet parking is also available. Reservations recommended. Thanks for a great evening.

First time to this Superb ristorante. From reservations where we were going to be late and graciously holding our table, to the professionally and stylishly dressed hostesses to the exquisite menu.

A finely tuned kitchen with a variety of selections that suited each of my party. We all had something different and all were served well and delicious from the fish to pasta..

No negatives and we will return

Thank you
