    It wasn’t awful but it wasn’t good either. Dishes were very salty and too much garlic, my friend sent hers back as it was inedible. The rest of ours were ok but still way too much salt. Probably won’t go back which is disappointing as it could be a great local Italian restaurant. The service was very good I will definitely say this, very nice people and for that I rated them higher.

    Nice little restaurant. Service was slow when we first arrived as all the staff did not arrive until later, apart from that we enjoyed our night. Meals were generously sized & very tasty.

    This place is such a gem and should be visited by everyone. Located in the heart of the Valley but once your inside there is a sense your definitely dining some where special. Have visited this local many times before and it never disappoints. Food is amazing and flavours like what you would expect packed full of authentic Italian goodness.

    First time there and was not disappointed Food selection was comprehensive and the food quality was outstanding. We selected bread and balsamic dip, gnocchi and the spaghetti.. This iconic Brisbane restaurant has survived the test of time and continues to deliver first class food without any pomp and ceremony. Service was attentive and timely. Recommend to all of Brisbane “go there and be delighted with what you find”

    Great food and service even though it was very busy with large groups. We certainly weren’t forgotten about. Very friendly staff who were happy to let you sit and enjoy your wine rather than rush you out the door.

    Food is good, but not super exciting. Could use more tentative service. Tiramisu was very good.

    We realllllly had a lovely night at Giardinetto! The vibe in the restaurant was relaxing and very retro. We particularly like the minimal lighting there. We tried the Filled Mushroom Caps appetiser and were very impressed by the harmony of such a mixture of flavours :) For mains, we had Gnocchi with Amatriciana sauce and Ravioli in creamy sauce. THEY WERE AMAZINGLY tasteful!!!! The Amatriciana sauce has a charred tint to it and we savoured every single bit of it. The Ravioli was humble yet full of flavours. We were going to order Tiramisu and Panna Cotta for dessert but were SO FULL at the end that we opted for the latter. Their Panna Cotta was served with raspberry and strawberry and their juice. It was just the right amount of creaminess balanced nicely by the light acidity from the berries. Their food was also very reasonably priced and we could not wait to come back for another visit soon! Thank you, Giardinetto, for showcasing us such incredible Italian food :) :)

    Remains arguably Brisbane's best Italian restaurant, an institution and justifiably so. Great food, friendly service and BYO wine is genuinely welcome.
