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.
Great food and fantastic service
Absolutely brilliant pizzas and staff attentive without being pushy. Really enjoyed it
We love giancarlos and it’s the best place to eat in Tranent. My wife is gluten free and would love to see even more GF options if possible - GF pizzas would be great or more main dishes GF.
Friendly service and for all it being a restricted menu the food we got was very good.
Very nice afternoon meal with drinks . Seat was a little cold as backed onto the entrance to the toilets at the back . Food excellent .
Great as always!
Great restaurant and food is second to none 👍

We had a lovely meal and would highly recommended x
Amazing food, great service. Thank you
Love the food at Giancarlos, the non alcoholic drinks are expensive though, lime and soda was over £5. The staff are all lovely and I really like the food there. Had a few takeaways and been to eat in a few times, all very good.
We had a lovely family meal at the weekend. The staff were great and were very good with our 2 year old twins and making sure they were catered for!
Maybe more vegan options would be great! There isn’t many places in East Lothian that cater for vegans (no diary, eggs, meat or fish) Some of the dishes could been modified for vegans so there is more choice. Only one pasta dish is vegan currently.
Made to feel very welcome and offered delicious food. I was also happy with the covid procedures in place, everything was clean, staff wore masks and there was hand sanitiser available. Service was friendly, helpful and food came quickly would recommend.
Staff were very helpful and attentive. A lovely place to eat with friends and family.
There’s always a warm welcome in Giancarlo’s.
Great service and delicious meal
