Rated 3 out of 5 by The food is average, then you add the price (due to location) its not worth the value. The only think they have going for then is the view. We ordered 4 different entrees and all of us felt that way independently. Way to many excellent with value Italian restaurants in town to waste the money. Gargi's is in our neighborhood, so we would like nothing more then for it to be outstanding. This is our second time visting since it opened and will be our last. Apr 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by the only complaint was we had a reservation for a table by the railing to overlook the lake and was disapointed they seated us at a two top outside and a four top remained open throughout our meal Apr 6, 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by We had a 7:30 p.m. reservation, but weren't seated until after 8:00. They were extremely busy, so service was VERY slow. We had to ask for bread. Food was good. We didn't leave until 9:45. Mar 23, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by It wasn't bad but it wasn't outstanding. We were seated quickly and got ordes taken quickly and salads came out fast but the good took forever, our server didn't visit often and when she did she seemed rushed. Mar 23, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by They placed us at a table by the kitchen which was quite noisy and you could hear everything going on and all the dishes of the cooking. And our waitress did not show us any attention. The party I took it was their first time and they were highly disappointed in the restaurant. Not because of the food but because of the service and attitude of the employees. Mar 17, 2014
