GianMarco's has been a favorite for several years but like any place, you're bound to have a bad experience. We ate at the wine bar, which we prefer. The server had too many tables and he did not manage it well. An appetizer and a side dish never made it to our table, one entree came out cold and another... More

We have made going to Gianmarcos an annual visit as we travel south for the winter. It is as good as ever--highly recommended. Hope you can have Amy as your waitress; she is an excellent waitress who is friendly and helpful. We will return when we are in Birmingham again.

Get your reservation in early! Popular neighborhood & city crowd. Upscale Italian. Open kitchen. Bar as you walk into front entrance. Wine garden in back too! Everyone comes to enjoy . Not a place for quiet conversation . We ate in main dining room. Superb service - our waiter never rushed us (group of 6) and guided us well through... More

We were in Birmingham for a business trip and decided to find a really good Italian restaurant one evening and boy did we find it!! Gianmarcos is simply a must when visiting Birmingham. We arrived around 5:15 and there wasn't an open table. Reservation is recommended and business casual is the attire. We were greeted warmly by Gianmarco himself (we... More

Visit frequently! Lunch is always a must. Staff attentive to your time. Dinner is also a much. Great romantic atmosphere for anniversary or other. We love the wine bar out back. Huge selection of wines!! Great to sit on the porch and take in the serenity of the little garden.

You cannot go wrong with this local, little gem. Very fresh and delish with wonderful service. You will likely need reservations though.

The restaurant was fully booked, but glad instead to have found their great Wine Bar out back with an impressive selection of wines by the bottle and some by the glass too.

Gianmarcos is a family owned and unique Italian restaurant. It is off the beaten path and a simple and unpretentious place with authentic food. Try the daily specials and ask your server for suggestions as they are most helpful. Extensive wine list and broad menu as well as specials can all be enjoyed. Deserves repeated visits to experience the deep... More

A lovely gem of a restaurant. Remember to book early because reservations go fast. This is one of those restaurants where you should always order whatever sounds good, because whatever you order will be great. This is my favorite restaurant in Birmingham. The wine list is exceptional and the bar service is outstanding. On a recent evening I dined at... More

Recommended by locals. Made a reservation for Samford Parents Weekend. Everything was fabulous! Cozy atmosphere, excellent service and delicious food from starters to dessert. I can see this becoming a family tradition for sure.

Thank MsLake
