About Giancarlo's italian
Our family started their Scottish Italian story, many years ago, journeying from their humble beginnings in the mountain village of Picinisco, making their way across Europe, to settle, eventually, in Scotland, to make their living. Of the great diaspora, that spread Italians across the globe, none, could have been more improbable, than their settlement in the remote, rainy Scotland. However, the affinity between the Scots and the Italians was instant. Scotland challenged Italians, but ultimately accommodated them and, in turn, the Scots and Italians learned from each other.
The culinary imprint of Italians can be seen everywhere on British streets. Walk down any major city street, and you will likely find, an Italian, or a descendent, selling ice cream, fish and chips, or, food inspired by their homeland.
This is my local restaurant, the food and service are consistently very good. I would recommend it without reservation.
We did enjoy our meal, however there were a few things that were disappointing. We had to wait quite a while for someone taking our drinks order. The waitress was pleasant but there did not seem to be enough staff on for such a busy period. The food was good. The restaurant was very noises and at one point could hardly hear ourselves speak. We asked for a second round of drinks and I was given a large rose when I did not ask for it and my friend asked for a large glass of Pinot Grigio but received a small on, although we did not say anything at the time as the staff were very bus. Maybe little things but all add up to a disappointing visit. Shame as we have been before and experience much better first time.
Food was ok my pollo carbonara was dry and tasteless, service was quite slow
Very good, took the kids. They loved it.
Very friendly staff and excellent with there attitude towards children, can't recommend highly enough.
Superb food and service. Great value lunch time.
Always consistently great food. Owners and staff are brilliant. Great value lunch menu and lobster ravioli and lamb chops from the a la carte are superb.
Amazing food and an excellent atmosphere, would recommend dining at giancarlo's to anyone.
Staff are very attentive, very helpful on choosing the wine my friend and I would love. Food is awesome...although they mistook my order but I was still satisfied as the food is really good.
Lovely lunch lovely food, with great service and a reasonable price
Thought the restaurant had changed a lot since the last time I was there and not for the better. No tablecloths any more, feels more like a cafe than a restaurant. Once we were ready to order we were told half the menu was unavailable leaving pizza or pasta. One waiter running around like crazy who was indeed doing a very good job all things considered but service nothing like it used to be. Unfortunately I won’t be back.
Quality of food ok service poor
A very noisy restaurant, we actually couldn't hear each other speak until after 8.30pm when it quietened down a bit. This wouldn't stop us returning but we'd book at a quieter time. The service was good, just slow, but this was probably because it was so busy. The food was very good and very good value.
Excellent as always. Fab food excellent service. Thanks for a great night ❤️
Pleasant meal. My food was a bit bland. Good menu and well cooked... Maybe I did not choose very well. I would return however.
Staff always attentive & friendly. Food is delicious. Only one aspect I would change is the music which although is very good,it’s not Italian
We had a lovely meal here whilst on our holidays, staff were very accommodating for children. Great value for money too :).
