GianMarco's Restaurant Review: Comfortable GianMarco’s is like the friend who never lets you down. On each visit, the food is just as good as you remembered. Giani and Marco Respinto grew up in their father's restaurant in New York, and when they opened this charming bistro, Giovanni came out of retirement to work with them. We recommend the simple dishes such as lasagna or grilled sausages and peppers. A salad with grilled apples, walnuts and blue cheese is topped with house-cured duck prosciutto. Veal Parmesan sports a puffy cloud of cheese and rests on a mound of spaghetti with sauce you'll want to dab up with bread. Must-do starters include Marco’s cheese torta layering mascarpone with sun-dried tomatoes. Entrées include a pan roast of chicken, shrimp, clams and sausage with white beans. Or try the spaghetti with Marco’s Sunday sauce. Tiramisu, chocolate tartufo or zabaglione with seasonal fruit provide a sweet finale. The thoughtfully selected wine list includes wines from Italy and around the world, and some California cult wines, all very fairly priced.
