Cesare was our waiter and he knows what we want before we know it. Except this time my mom and I took the specials and they were AMAZING and my dad took his usual apple pie and coffee. We always feel like we're walking into a relatives home. They make you feel loved. RoseM

The food was horrible bread was stale served with frozen butter chicken was old and tasted spoiled. They did remove it from the check but very poor quality food. I’m not surprised these red sauce restaurants are never of any quality. I will never return. The dining room is very attractive though.

From the pan-seared mozzarella to the roasted red pepper smothered veal chop, dinner was simply succulent!! The decadent desserts were impossible to resist. Absolutely my favorite restaurant!!

Food was very good, ambiance was nice, decorated for the day. Service was alittle sparce but it was a busy night so 50/50. Live music was a little loud causing people to talk louder

The waiter had so many tables that he forgot about our table. Food and ambiance was good but the service could be better. Possibly going on a regular night and not on a holiday could make your experience better.

It was our 37th wedding anniversary and it was special. Gargiulo’s restaurant was decorated for Christmas and it was beautiful. I have been there with the guys on several occasions and for other events. My wife loves Gargiulo’s and we will be back.

We went there for my wife birthday and we made a reservation through open table but when we arrived there was nobody to welcome us and we stand in front of te dining room waiting to get sited. They never checked us in in the first place so i understand that they didn't even recognize about the birthday fact. Food and the server was pretty good. All they need is an hostess/host.

This old school Italian restaurant has been around for a long time. The food is delicious. The wait staff is terrific, attentive and knowledgeable. The affable owners are available and cruise through the restaurant.. At the end of dinner the come around with dice and if your number comes up dinner is on them. The have parking.

What a disappointment! Food was mediocre at best. The chicken soup needed a lot of salt and pepper and the pasta with white clam sauce was salty and unappetizing. The restaurant retains some of its grandeur but the food and the fancy prices no longer match up. Time to move on.

My family took me for my birthday celebration, and as usual the food was outstanding. What made the dinner even more special was our waiter, he was amazing - friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and just a joy!! I wish I had asked him his name!! Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal and it was a perfect day!!
