We just came off the beach at Santa Claus Lane at 1:30 and made to the restaurant in time for a lunch special.
$12.99 for an entree , ice tea and Spumoni . My niece had chicken parmigiana on Angel hair . I had chicken fettuccine with broccoli and peas and my nephew had tortellini with pink sauce. We added a Caesar salad to share for a start . All the meals were done with care
and ingredients were a cut above. This is a fine dining place and hope to return for dinner on the patio out back . I enjoyed the slower pace as we are on vacation!

I live in Carpinteria and have wanted to visit Giannfranco's so a friend took me there to celebrate my birthday. The pasta dishes we had were very good but the wine was much too expensive. The connotation of "house" wine at Giannfranco's is not what I expected (less expensive) so was very surprised by the price of two glasses of Malbec. I didn't think it was a restaurant for small children but one was present.

Excellent and authentic Italian food. My wife and I ate there on successive nights and were extremely pleased. Service was outstanding and entrees very reasonably priced. If you are in Carpinteria and haven't eaten there, you should definitely make a point to do so.
