    Had a lovely birthday meal and will most definitely be back again in the near future. The portion sizes were large and excellent value for money and the entrees we had were delicious!

    Wonderful restaurant, with wonderful food, and wonderful staff. However, you can be a little bit noisy. If there is a big table of people or laughing and talking it could be quite noisy. However, absolutely amazing place and we'll be back definitely.

    Giardinetto has been one of our favourite restaurants for the last 20 years. The food is delicious with very generous servings. The team are always friendly and very accomodating and the restaurant makes you feel like you are in Italy. Always a great night!

    What a great little find. Handy to the station as we all came by train from different parts of Brisbane. Really nice pasta and Pizza dishes, nicely presented. More than adequate for our lunch. Certainly on our list to visit again.

    Great food, fantastic service. The ambiance really set the mood for a romantic outing. The parmesan garlic bread was melt in your mouth, the pastry was divine.

    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.
