I have picked up from here during Covid and enjoyed my meals. I recently dined in and today's visit was a first for Sunday/Brunch/Lunch and I was not disappointed. Shannon is the best! Always friendly and well versed on the menu. Attentive and manages the time in between her tables very well. I took a friend for the first time and she is now "smitten" with the place. The food is phenom! The garlic knots are a must. You literally cannot go astray on any of the items on the menu as everything I have ordered in (or for take-out) has been really good. I would recommend this spot anytime. On Sunday, we made a reservation, but it wasn't too crowded, but during the week and Friday/Saturday - I think reservations are a must. Also, I think due to not having as many servers - they limit reservations and such so - plan ahead and enjoy!
Food was good, service was good. It was evident they were short staffed. We saw people counting/splitting tips on the bar, which wasn't something I've ever seen in a restaurant. Parking is really bad and the neighborhood isn't the greatest. I would consider coming back again.
Fastly becoming my go to! Even with limited staff this place does not dissapoint! Food and beverages are simply 5 stats! Service alwys friendly!
Best Italian food I have ever had.
Excellent service, Shannon was terrific. Will be back soon
As always, wonderful food and service. Great restaurant if you are wanting Italian food for dinner.
We love it...food is delicious
Always delicious food & service.
Long long long long wait for food, no acknowledgement for delay.
This is our second visit and things have changed in the last year and a half. The Caesar salad came with no dressing on it and then when we asked for some it came with a basic Italian that we poured on top. The salad was completely unremarkable and could’ve come out of a bag you bought at the grocery store. Next we each tried several different pastas including the shrimp fettuccine Alfredo, the pork and beef Ragu pappardelle , the lobster gnocchi, the short rib , steak Florentine and the osso buco. Thr osso buco was very dry & overcooked. The pasta dishes were very basic and lacked salt. The pasta was cooked well but the sauces were frankly not that exciting. The steak was very good. Service was efficient and the place is very cute but the food could use a little work.
Only ate outdoors and atmosphere was casual as well as seating. All people very friendly. Decent value and food.
Always great food and service. Love the outdoor seating. It’s a nice hidden gem. I was headed to another favorite in Mission Valley, then remembered Giardino’s. The atmosphere was so chill.
We went on a double date to this Italian place in Lemon Grove. We had a delightful dinner. I was surprised they had such a wonderful handcrafted cocktails. My Sicilian Mule was perfect and refreshing . Girls had habanero margaritas and were surprised with a cool taste. Appetizers and main courses were finger lickin good. The boar pasta was an absolute hit. Lobster gnocchi had a generous lobster tail on top and tasted delicious. The portions are really generous. The server was really nice and attentive. Unfortunately we we were so full and couldn’t try a dessert. We will definitely come back.
Always a great place to dine
As usual they did not disappoint! Food, service, ambiance was amazing!
This is my favorite restaurant! Great menu and many choices! Fabulous food and atmosphere.
Dined here a few times. Never disappoints.
We always enjoy our time here. The food is delicious, the staff is kind &
Quality of food is outstanding
Been to Giardinos several times. We went there to celebrate our anniversary. Food was delicious, atmosphere cozy and our server was courteous, prompt and satisfied all of our needs.
Margherita pizza was delicious and wine was of good value, members of my group were very happy with their mixed drinks as well.
This has become one of our favorite places. Our duaghter has choosen this for the last 3 celebrations which I think speaks for itself.
Love this spot, and try to patronize them frequently. Definitely worth a visit, their food is delicious, fresh, and high-quality. Last night was a bit off for them, the food did not have the flavor and seasoning expected from Giardino. Not bad, just not as good as usual, and I suspect it was because they are having difficulty (as all restaurants are) in getting help. Their corkage rates are a bit puzzling, too. 1-2 bottles + $15 per, 3-more $25 per?
Lastly, if they could quiet the dining room down some it would be most appreciated - especially for larger (4+) groups, so you can actually talk and hear each other.
But still one of my East County favorites.
The food was ok, but it took forever to come out. The waiter warned us that it could be up to an hour to get our food. The waiter was nice but the food wasn't anything special for the amount of time it took to get to us. Also I got a diet coke which was a fountain drink so the refills were free, but my husband got a dr. pepper which came in a can, so when he got a refill we got charged for another drink. $2.50 per can is ridiculous!
Although it was very busy on a Friday night the host and waitress kept it under control and was very friendly and apologetic for the slow service due to staffing. However , the Food was D E L I C I O U S . We're definitely coming back.
Amazing food, very authentic!
The ambiance was great, 1st time there and we will definitely be back! Those watermelon frescas are Bommm!!!
Great restaurant! The food was amazing and the atmosphere and decor were comfortable and relaxing. A great little date night spot. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
Parking is the only issue. Out of luck if sides or back parking is taken, not that many. If taken, then you’ll have to deal with residential street parking.
I love this restaurant. Karina, the owner, took the bold step of opening a restaurant in a part of town not known for fine dining... got through the pandemic while supporting locals who needed food by running a delivery service... is now battling the shortage of available kitchen staff... and more than ever needs the community's support as a result. But maybe you don't care about any of that, and just want to know what the place is like. Well, excellent food, ambiance, wine, and staff make the place a constant delight both for lunch and dinner.
We've been to this restaurant several times. We always like the meals we select. We went with some friend who had never eaten there. We shared a pizza, the short ribs, and 2 pasta dishes. They were all delicious.
We ordered 2 appetizers. The garlic knots came out first and after a very long wait the brussel sprouts came out. Then after a very very long wait our dishes came out except for one which came out last. If not for the ambiance in the patio I would have left. I counted 3 other parties that came and left during our stay. I would try it again though.
Awful service, salty food, over priced. Took 45 to get appetizer. Waiter never offered drinks and we had to get water from the bus person twice. Won’t go back.
No air conditioning
SLLLLLLOOOOOW service. Which I wouldn’t have really minded if I wasn’t swatting flys away and dripping in my own sweat. And finally at the very least my drinks were timely.
I Really Was Rooting For This Place as they rebuild their team.
We had out of town visitors staying with us. The first place we thought to take them was Giardino’s. As usual, the food was superb and the service impeccable. Our guests absolutely loved it and have asked to go back again before they leave.
Went here for my mon's birthday dinner. It is very cute, trendy! The mixed drinks were delicious, and the servers were very friendly and accommodating... HOWEVER, they were so understaffed that it took us 2.5 hours to get through a meal of pasta! We all ordered simple pasta dishes. From the time we ordered to when we got our food was just over an hour. Our server was super apologetic and gave us free bread (we had already gone through 2 rounds of garlic bread before that because of the wait.) they also comped dessert which was kind.
The food itself was only average and they were out of a few things. I ordered lobster Gnocchi and it was very good, but some of the other dishes were bland and boring.
Will possibly try again once they have had time to hire more kitchen staff. I really wanted to like it... just not a great experience.
I love the ambience , the staff is friendly & the food is always delicious! I've brought family & friends here & they are surprised to try such delicious food in Lemon Grove.
we love giardinos! our waitress was so amazing & kind
Beautiful gem in the heart of Lemon Grove. Service and food are stellar.
We thoroughly enjoyed our night at Giardino. The ambiance was great and the food was out of this world. We had the Gnocchi Caprese and Fettuccine Carbonara as our main course and they were both extraordinarily delicious.
Went for the cheese wheel pasta & was amazed🥰 The service was impeccable they were very attentive & the food was well portioned overall had an above & beyond experience im glad I chose this place over heading all the way to little Italy for some good italian 😌
Our food took a while to come. We were there 10 minutes before 8pm and if I hadn’t told the server to check on our food it was going to be more delayed than what expected. We got our appetizers at 8:20 pm. So it took 30 minutes to served then we got our food 15 imputes after In the end she offered us a free dessert for each one of us which was to compensate us for the delay of our food. All in all the food was great and desserts were delicious.
