“Also look at the reviews under 'Al Giardino', same place”
Reviewed 9 May 2013 via mobile

I posted my review for Al Giardino and then saw that this restaurant is on the list twice, once with its real name Al Giardino and once with the shorter version Giardino. It it top three in Winterthur now - I think it deserves to be number one in quality, friendliness, service and atmosphere!

“It is back on track!”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

We gave the Giardino Restaurant another chance after exactly one year. And we can gladly confirm that the 'starting problems' of the new ownership are over: We had a fantastic dinner with fresh and innovative salads to start with, then Spaghetti Giardino, high quality freshwater fish and calf's liver for the mains. The service was top notch, excellent, warm and friendly. We are very happy that this old family restaurant of ours is getting back on track. We will be back!

“Changed ownership - deteriorated in quality, selection and service!”
Reviewed 11 September 2011

The Giardino restaurant has been our family favorite for more than a decade. It has now (again) changed ownership and we had to change our favorite restaurant in Winterthur. The menu looks rather identical than before, however the selection has been reduced and so has the quality of the food. The service was not as good as before - a bit naive, over friendly, we felt 'overmanaged'. We won't be back. Sorry.

“Great food - Glasshouse in winter, terrace in summer!”
Reviewed 30 December 2010

We are very regular customers at the Giardino's in Winterthur which is situated a bit outside the city center along the Tosstalstrasse leading to Turbenthal. The food is classic, Italian inspired and consistently on an excellent level. The wine list seems limited and would deserve some additions. We love the service which is omni present and friendly. We recommend a choice from the grill or Spaghetti Giardino, in summer their great Paella. The restaurant recently added a separated cigar bar. Parking is a bit difficult and we recommend to use the nearby parking in the shopping center and walk over to the venue. We highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the area!
