You have got to be kidding!!! This place is a joke!!! – Attempted to have a fun Friday evening with friends. Unfortunately, after a 2+ hour wait, and still no food, decided to cut our loses... and we were told we were wasting the owners time!!!
Police had to be called in to help calm other customers who had similiar experiences with the awful service.
Heard quotes from some of the locals and the staff that the people running the restaurant are either mean, crazy or both!!!
Too many other good restaurants in STL to waste your time here...
Wish I could charge this place for wasting my time!!!
Worth The Wait!!!!! – We found Giancarlos by accident on new years eve.
We went ordered our dinner and did wait for a bit for our salads, When they arrived the dressing was to DIE for!!!
Then we waited again for the food, I recall telling my husband this better be good or Im goona be mad !
OH MY GOODNESS!! When the fettuccine alfredo arrived it was and still is the BEST I have ever had!!!
And the rest is history, we visit at least once a week.
And have never had anything but awesome food!
Yes it is kind of slow but The owner/chef Tina & her mom Nona cook EVERYTHING TO ORDER.
Nothing pre-made and it totally shows in the foods taste. And the prices are CRAZY 16 inch Giancarlos Sandwich full of meat 6.99 YES I SAID 6.99
Try that at subway!!!
Allin all yes its kinda slow but the taste, quality and value make up for it all. And Tina & Nona are the kindest sweetest people you will ever encounter!!
Be sure to try one of Nona FRESH made cannollis
Mixed Experiences – Provides very authentic italian food which is amazing, however, the service has been getting progressively worse. Last trip we waiting an hour for cold cut sandwiches and then another half hour for the bill. We ended up having to go up to the counter and pushing for it immediately after an hour and 45 minutes.
Salads to die for! – Ive been going to Giancarlos for years. The Greek salad is delicious but, Grandmother Nonas one and only salad dressing is totally to die for! The pastas are excellent. The service is wonderful. At times the service is a little slow but the food more then makes up for it. In a rush, call ahead. This is where we have large family meals, my friends and I go, and yes my employers take us to eat, they love it! Tina is very personable and always comes to our table to greet us and the last time we were there Nona came to our table with Tina.
Be careful those salads can be addicting.
BEST PLACE IN ST.LOUIS!! – Gian Carlos is the best place I have been to in a while. I know the economy is ruff, but it's too bad people can't get out more to enjoy this great restaurant. The owner is from Italy and she will talk your ear off, but that makes the experience great for everyone. This is a truly authentic Italian Restaurant in St.Louis MO. The sandwiches are under priced!
Good Pizza wierd service and atmosphere – Great Chicago style stuffed pizza, horrible service though, and that;s just with takeout. Pizza takes about 1 1/4 hour to get and costs alot, but is very good. Never anyone there, I think it's a front for something...
Worst...place...ever! – Words can't describe what a horrible place this is, both in terms of service and quality of the food. Heed my words and pass on by. I wish someone had given me the same advice.
TERRIBLE SERVICE – I ordered a sandwich with specifics- 16 inch turkey, cheese, and onions and a large pepproni pizza. I waited over an hour which isn't a big deal but when I got home, my sandwich only had 3 pieces of turkey and the cheese and onion were not there. I drove back to the place and had the owner fix it and she didnt even care that I had to come back. The waitress seemed to be the only one concerned with customer service cause she gave me 5 bucks back for having to come back, and I know that came from her tips. The owner noticed that the girl gave me back some money then started screaming at the girl saying that she's trying to make her look bad. I felt so bad for the waitress I gave her back the money and told her not to worry. I should have given her my card so she could come and work for me. I'm a big supportter of small buisness but this place won't be getting my money ever again.
Bad Owner – The food can be good but owner seems very confused. If she makes a mistake it?s always like "so" pay me anyhow. We been going since they opened years ago but have not been there in months. Not worth the effort.
Avoid Friday Nights – Horrifying experience. We sat down at 5:30pm. There were two people in our party. We ordered 1 pizza and 2 salads. There was screaming and yelling coming from the kitchen. This went on and on. One hour later we still did not have our food so we got up and left because there was fighting. This woman the owner was yelling and threatening someone. We got up and left. A woman I guess the owner followed us outside to tell us to come back and pay (for food we never got) or she was going to call the cops. Now she was screaming at us. The man she was yelling at came out and told us not to worry about it and to go a head and leave. So we left and never came back.
