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

We dropped in for an early dinner on a very wet Friday night. They open at 6pm and we didn't have a booking which I recommend that you do. Our waiter Kent was fantastic and helpful. We had the Garlic bread, which was sensational and the main were veal fungi $33 in wine sauce. That was delicious and washed down... More

This traditional italion resturant is turning 50 this year. I've walked past it a lot but never bothered to there. I'm glad we did last night. When booking I had assumed that the place would be packed so chose a 6pm reservation. We very nearly had the place to ourselves. The young man serving us was very friendly and quick... More

I never choose anything vegetarian and am pretty much not very adventurous. tonight i just felt like a nice coffee so popped in. The owner kept sending little things around for me to sample which was a lovey treat and i had vegetarian cannelloni , it was so surprising how it was packed with so much taste and so flavoursome...

Arancini was so burnt it was not edible. Pizza was also burnt and the base was so thick it was not cooked through. 2 stars because it had a good atmosphere, good service and is BYO.
