On a trip to Florence, Italy in 1983, Il Giardino co-owner Tony Gargiulo spotted a wood-burning stove being used for baking and knew it should be the centerpiece for his new restaurant. That same oven 3 the first of its kind in Virginia -- has churned out fresh foccccia and delicious to-order pizza as the cornerstone of the full-service Il Giardino ever since.

We used to go here all the time and always loved it. We hadn't been in a while and decided to go back. It was like a different restaurant. They seem to have squeezed more tables into the room, the place was so loud, and the food and service were both not good. Our waiter decided to give his attention to a larger table, and we had to wave him down to get him. He acted like we were inconveniencing him being there. The food always use to taste fresh and homemade, but not anymore. My pasta dish was burnt in places and lacked flavor. My husbands veal was dry and overdone. We were not happy. I do not mind paying alot for good atmosphere, food and service, but we did not find it here.
Great food! I loved their piano bar. Their menu features veal, chicken, seafood, pasta, steak and a thorough list of appetizers. A great place to go while at the ocean front. The veal saltimbocca is the best in the area. I'll be back!
This restaurant is wonderful! I love the food as well as the pleasant atmosphere! The service is great also. After dinner we like to walk on the beach, making everything just perfect!

Warm and vibrant spot that oozes with Italian charm.
Still lacking true Italian authenticity but in an area with little to no Italian restaurants, it suffices. Strengths: fresh, rich pasta; fresh cheese; fresh seafood; and good-sized portions. Needs a little more kick to the sauces. Restaurant is fairly loud but overall a good experience.
My daughter's favorite food is Italian, and so whenever we travel, we always try to find a good Italian restaurant. When we are in VA Beach, that restaurant is IL Giardino. I have never had a bad meal there, and the servers there are great. During this past visit, we had Richard, an Irish guy from Boston, as our server...
