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.

We went on a Tuesday lunch time and were pleasantly surprised by how many other customers were also there. The waitress was extremely friendly and helpful and although it’s a smaller menu there is still lots of choice and the food was lovely as always. Highly recommend this lovely restaurant for lunch or dinner.

Had dinner at Giancarlos on Wednesday with our two grandkids. Service was excellent, very friendly staff, food first class, could not fault it. Thanks again for a lovely evening. Best thing that ever happened to Tranent. We love supporting local business.

Really disappointed by the complete lack of distancing between tables. Won't be back because of that. Food was great but lunch also spoiled by two young guys at another table who seemed to just be drinking, really noisy and boisterous. Not what we were looking for.

Food was lovely. Just a long wait. Tables that ordered after us had food before us. I know it was very busy but kids were really hungry waiting. Staff were all lively, just busy.

Very busy night due to continuing the meal deal offer but left rather disappointed. 3 times we had to ask for water for our table, no offer of black pepper or Parmazan with meal had to catch eye of waiter/es to ask. Pizza was rather lacking in ingredients ie onions and cheese and starter was one slice of bread cut into 3 small pieces Which was again lacking The normal flare . The tiramisu was amazing but we had to catch the eye of staff to ask if we could see the desert menu. It won’t stop me returning but please don’t pull back on your usual service because of keeping up with an offer. Would rather pay full price than have reduced service and food.

Was overcharged, when I asked about it I was told it was because they didn’t have the new menu yet but their system was updated. Wasn’t told this when I sat down and they shouldn’t be charging different prices from the menu that you are given at the table.

Excellent evening at Gian Carlos. Love that the way out to help out has been extending in to September we are rebooked already. The food was fantastic and the service was amazing. Only small concern was how busy the restaurant was with current covid guidelines. We will be back before the month is out

Our meal was delicious though we were a bit surprised at our huge portions as it's been a while since I've been in a restaurant so generous! Service was in good time & staff super friendly!! Great value & definitely recommend as a meal out for a couple or family.
