THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Giancarlo’s Ristorante Mediterraneo Restaurant Review

: Settle in at the lively bar fronting the open kitchen or the adjacent white-tablecloth dining room to enjoy Giancarlo’s hearty fare: Caesar salad made with a lightly grilled wedge of romaine drizzled with a creamy dressing; roasted salmon served over risotto studded with chopped scallops and shrimp; short rib ravioli with a rich mushroom ragù sauce. The ample wine list leans more towards Italian labels than locals. For dessert, go for the tiramisu or gelato with a glass of vin santo or an espresso. Menus for happy hour, early birds, special occasions and Sunday brunch round out the offerings. Service can sometimes be a bit spotty, but the food is rarely at fault.
