On Sunday, November 30th, my partner and I had the distinct pleasure of celebrating our 30th anniversary and our wedding reception at Giardino D’Oro. It was a magical experience!!! Benny (the owner) and his team are amazing hosts. They paid attention to the most minute detail and ensured that everything ran smoothly. The food was spectacular – amazing cocktail hour appetizers and the dinner was superb. The atmosphere was so comfortable, fun, warm and intimate. I can’t think of a better place to celebrate the happiest day of your life!
If you’re planning a New York City wedding and want a beautiful, intimate venue with amazing food and service, outstanding attention to detail (Benny is a joy to work with), and incomparable value – look no further than Giardino D’Oro.
I would highly recommend a visit to this wonderful restaurant at your earliest convenience. You will not be disappointed!!!
This is hands down my most favorite restaurant in Manhattan. We found it via Yelp when we were scouting locations for our wedding dinner. Our first experience was superb. Great staff, nice environment, and oh my goodness the food! To die for! Something a true Italian can appreciate! Needless to say we wanted to move forward with booking our wedding dinner there. And then we were introduced to Benny. He only made the experience better and boy was he the man throughout the entire planning process! He catered to all of our needs and requests and assured us everything would be perfect for our 40 guests…and it truly was. Everyone raved about the service and the food. My Italian family still talks about the ricotta pie that they say tastes better than their mother’s! That’s blasphemy in the Italian world! Oh and definitely get the gnocchi…it’s homemade and oh so delicious!
Kudos to Benny for his effort, kindness and patience. He even offered to drive the bride and groom back to the hotel after the dinner…talk about good hospitality!
Whether for dinner for 2 or a large party…this place is a gem. They also have a downstairs dining room which was perfect for our wedding dinner because it was private. Bellissimo!
Loved, loved, loved it! Went around 9:00 on a Friday night. Very light crowd. Loved the salami and cheese plate they give you when you sit down. Service was perfect. Portions were huge. Homemade pasta…we loved it!
Benni has this place clicking on all cylinders. Great service, great food and a warm welcome the minute you put your foot in the door. Good stuff there for sure, hope some of you get there and have a meal.
A must! Benny is a gracious owner and his staff is exceptional. Fabulous food, authentic and off the beaten path! Salute’
The only authentic Itaian ristorante, period. You deserve to be apart of this experience from the welcoming at the entrance, wine list and the food is to die for.
Stopped by to have dinner with a client. Very personable service, food was delicious, and the environment was great! Owner was involved and interacting with customers. I would definitely recommend this establishment!
I love this place, and so does my wife. Among the things they excel in, service is at the top. We went her for her birthday, and they treated us like royalty!
A wonderful evening with Exceptional Food & Wine combined with Warm and Personal service. A definite must. Will definitely be back.
