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.
Another great dining experience at Ginacarlo's. We'll definitely be back.
I am coeliac and the waiter was very good telling me what I could eat or swap. Very friendly enjoyed my meal.
excellent as always.
Great time as always xxx
Excellent waiter service, nothing too much trouble. Food outstanding, lovely cocktails. Definitely going back.
The food was delicious and the portions were very generous. We went on a Saturday lunch time and were the only diners in. The waiter and chef made a great effort to make sure we enjoyed our meal. I would have rated it straight 5* but the seats were a little uncomfortable and I thought the soft drinks and water were slightly overpriced.
Seating wasn’t very comfortable and a bit noisy
Service a bit slow but resturant very busy.
Excellent as always xx
This was my second visit and I was not disappointed. A small menu with something for everyone. The staff were friendly and attentive, the food was great. I will be back. Many thanks
Great new menu, delicious food and great service even though the guys were very short-staffed on a very busy evening.
Excellent as always!! x
Good service. Timely delivery of food. A very good price. Not an extensive menu for my choices outwith pizza I dont think some choices as well cooked as 9 months ago but we're regular because of service and let's face it, its the best in the dark place that is Tranent and local.
Our first visit to Giancarlo's and we were very impressed. The service was excellent, very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and did not break the bank. Thank you very much for a lovely afternoon!
Waited 40 mins for our food order to be taken which in the end we just asked for the bill and left.
Great service, food fresh and tasty. Will be back!
we had a coeliac in our party and their pizza was very dry. The rest of our food was delicious
Very busy restaurant yesterday but this did not effect the quality of the food or service. Food and service was excellent. Would highly recommend. Best Italian in East Lothian :)
Lovely meal with my family. Great service and food was amazing! Be back soon!
We visited Giancarlo’s for a belated birthday treat for my husband. We were greeted warmly and the service throughout was second to none. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions are very generous - both myself and my husband left some of our mains as we couldn’t finish them. Also the Nutella pizza is amazing!! We will definitely be back, thank you to all the staff for a lovely evening :)
great food , great service
Had the best pizza for a long time
We enjoy coming to Giancarlo's but every time we visit the restaurant is absolutely freezing! You must notice your diners sitting with scarves and sometimes coats on. The back doors let in far too much cold air. Unfortunately this is the last time we will come in the evening and outwith summer because it spoils dinner. Shame because the food is very good and the staff are always very nice. Guys - you've got to sort this out.
We unfortunately didn't get on 1/03 as the weather affected both travel and the restaurant. However we will rebook when we are free. This little gem is one of our favourite eateries, service and food of the highest standard.
Great service and high quality food. I’ll certainly be back!
