That's the place for an authentic Italian dining with pasta, veal chops, penne a la vodka and more. You can also eat in the well furnished wine bar/cellar located behind the restaurant; it is small but quaint. Always a wait, but worth it.

Outstanding food. The space is a bit cramped...but that is a direct result of just how good the food is. Getting a reservation can be tricky, but the experience is worth the effort. Do yourself a favor - order the Penne Vodka w/Pancetta. Other dishes will entice, but this one is a "can't miss". Benvenuto!

Was taken here on business trip by some associates. Menu looked like average Italian restaurant, but wait for the specials! I had duck leg on gumbo and rice. Other non-Italian dish specials. Wine list full of excellent choices that were very affordable priced. Big name wines at well below expected prices. Wait staff was professional, attentive and fun.

Restaurant is great, fabulous food. We have had to wait a long time, but it is worth the wait. Parking has been improved greatly, so not an issue anymore. If you want a great Italian experience then this is the place. Staff is friendly, know their business.

I have eaten here 7 times In the last year and I believe they are in then top 5 Italian restaurants that I have ever eaten in. I had the veal chop special and it was cooked perfectly. The fiocchi is a must try, defiantly the best I have ever eaten. Previously I have had the bone in veal Parmesan... More

We chose to celebrate our wedding anniversary at GianMarco's. The experience started out on the wrong foot when we were told on arrival that we were "required to valet park". The parking attendant further told us that it was so they could park cars really close together to accommodate more people. The waiter totally brushed it off when we expressed... More

Our family met at Ross bridge for an early Christmas present to each other and Gianmarco's was one of two restaurants we wanted to go to. Wonderful experience, a little too crowded- but I had fun talking to my "neighbors" and them telling me what to order! Our waiter was the best- easy, funny and on top of things. He... More

This is my son's and daughter-in-law's favorite restaurant in Birmingham. They eat there at least once a month. This was our first time, and we look forward to going back the next time we visit them. They favor the wine bar in the back rather than the main dining room. It's more casual with seating both inside and out. They... More
