Great food, service, parking 7/22/2008

Would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Food is great, service is great and free parking (tip the parking attendent). Went with my friends months ago and decided to take my family and friends. They all love the food. There's a lot of seating and the wait time for meals is minimal. Highly recommended!!! more

Everything an Italian Restaurant Should Be 6/5/2008

Enter this restaurant and the decor is neither Italian kitsch nor over-done. A very handsome cocktail bar is built around their wood-fired brick oven. The aroma of the fire permeates the room in a pleasant fashion. We'd stumbled upon the place and it appealed to us because of the availability of off-street parking. But when we were seated we'd already made up our minds we'd return. The bread basket contains bruschetta from the brick oven, and is accompanied by a dish of white beans, garlic and onions in olive oil. You must have the steamed mussels - and order the ""red sauce."" The delightful seafood and delectable sauce were an item we'd have paid three times as much for. Spiedini all Romana could've used more anchovy paste, but was the only lackluster appetizer. The house tagliatelle with a lovely, dense mushroom sauce was decadently creamy and the pasta was perfect. The veal chop is just great, and not too pricey either. A scallop special on one visit was delectable. Veal scallopine was fork-tender. Wines are fairly priced and of high quality; even the house Chianti by the glass is a home run. A warning: order sparingly if you hate doggy bags; the portions are gargantuan. Service is unobtrusive, friendly and helpful. This restaurant even serves a very, very good cup of coffee - an indication of attention to detail. Dessert of choice by far is the Tiramisu - this one light as a feather. A strawberry mousse cake was also quite good (they don't have it all the time). One last thing: their red sauce (or ""gravy"") as we call it in this neck of the woods, is so good we purchase at least two quarts to take home on every visit. Pros: Delicious and a good value. Cons: What's not to like? more

Great Food & Portions 2/26/2003

Giardino's offers great Italian food at a very reasonable price. I have been going here for years. There portions are also very generous. They are the same owners of Carravelle & Russo's on the Bay in Howard Beach. Nice place for small or large parties as well. They have a couple of rooms that you can rent for bridal/baby showers,anniversaries,etc. Pros: Great Food, Atmosphere, Vallet Parking Cons: Far from Manhattan more

Good place to eat 8/5/2002

Giardino on Northern Boulevard is a good priced, decent proportioned place to eat at. Catering to families, couples and singles, it's nothing special, but the food has never stopped me from going back. Service isn't the best, but there's almost never a wait. Pros: Inexpensive, Decent Proportions Cons: Slow service more
