The restaurant itself had a very outdated / typical Italian restaurant theme. The food was alright, but the sangria was amazing. Good dinner but wouldn't chomp at the bit to go again.

We had very good service from the time we entered the restaurant until we finished. On the whole, the food was very good. The Chicken Scarpariello was excellent, the Pork Chop was very good, but my wife was disappointed by the Chicken Marsala.

Had dinner at this long time favorite of mine. The stuffed artichoke (special) was fabulous and the brick oven pizza is incredible. All of the dishes are authentic and the staff is very helpful and accomodating. Try it....you'll like it.

Tired of baked ziti as the only Italian Food? Try Giardino in Douglaston, New York. Clean, quiet and great service. There is a full bar as well. Delicious! Good place for business or family.

It's cool to introduce someone to a place that they haven't been, with great food and service. It's way too easy to choose something based on its marketing budget. I was introduced to Giardino by Joselin from work. It was great and since I had never heard of it, her stature as a restaurant selection savant rose in my mind.... More

Friday night dinner was very good. It was expensive but not any more than any other restaurant in town. Also had leftovers, so dinners are definitely generous.
