Girardi's Osteria

504 5th Ave S, Edmonds WA 98020
$$ Italian Recommended New Editor's Pick Private Room Outdoor Seating

23+ year old Italian Restaurant in a stand-alone building with an outdoor patio with producing merlot grape vines growing on the trellises, a large three-tier fountain, and a more private rear terrace/sun room (for up to 16 guests). The patio includes an open-top as well as semi-enclosed (3 sides and top), all with overhead heating units. Inside features a full-service bar, a 270 degree central fireplace, and all windows on two sides not looking towards the bar. The menu is predominantly Italian, with some American fare.
Girardi's offers beef/pork/lamb/chicken, seafood (pescatarian), vegetarian meals and can create some Gluten-Free dishes (prepared near non-GF foods). Girardi's marinara is created with 100% Imported Italian San Marzano tomatoes. Featuring a variety of super-premium as well as more affordable wine selections, $6.50 house wine by the glass, a good selection of bottled or canned beers, and a great selection of cocktails. Girardi's house-made Tiramisu is unique in the area and is cherished by those who respect the authentic flavor and texture of a "real" Tiramisu. A fine array of desserts (including Cannoli and Affogato), cakes and ice cream round out your dining experience. Note on Reservations: Girardi's does not take reservations for patio seating. It is first-come, first-served, but due to the number of available tables, turnover is fairly quick, and wait time is short, if at all. Reservations will gladly be accepted for inside dining room and the terrace/sun room seating.

The Eggplant Parmison with Spaghetti was outstanding. I had just been in Italy and loved the eggplant there, but Girardi's was just as good if not better! The server was attentive and friendly. I can hardly wait to return. Check out their "Happy Hour" selections in effect during their never-ending Happy Hour.

The three of us really enjoyed our meals. The service was spotty but I know restaurants are understaffed. The menu is too large, it should be pared down.

The chicken filets were a little dry and there was too much dressing on the lettuce, but it was quite pleasant eating outside and the waiter (from Sardinia!) was delightful. My tablemates loved their chicken piccata and beet salad.

We are wine club members at Dusted Valley. It was time to come to the Edmonds tasting room to pick up our quarterly stash and it's never good to drink without food. Upon doing an online search we found Girardi's and it far surpassed our expectations. Delicious food combined with impeccable friendly service and a very good price point for the value. We'll be back!

Our service was great, attentive without hovering. Our food was wonderful, served hot, perfectly seasoned, and flavorful. Although it was a chilly evening, the restaurant temperature was not cold and not hot but just right. We wore long sleeves, sleeveless might have been a bit cold. The risotto was a bit al dente for our preference but tasted wonderful, and we realize risotto is supposed to be al dente.

Having a reservation got the three of us a table at window next to street -- nice for watching people go by. We arrived at 4 pm so not many others in restaurant. Waitstaff were pleasant and attentive. Food -- spinach salad and 2 cheeseburgers -- were excellent. Yes, a cheeseburger in an Italian food restaurant! Cheeseburger had a 1/2 pound patty plus all the usual additions. Delicious. Hit the spot for a 4 pm early dinner, late lunch. All local COVID-19 requirements met. Also has an attached, semi-outside area with heaters. Wonderful experience.

Girardi's Osteria was wonderful! Not a single bad word to say about them. The food was delicious (the goat cheese bruschetta was swoonworthy). The service quite good for their being understaffed, and the ambience delightful. The menu has a wide range of options, and some truly unique dishes. I can't wait to go back and try more of their dishes!

We ate outside on the patio on a perfect day. Temperature in the high 70’s. A pink cherry tree overhang our table. So the ambiance was wonderful. The menu has been quite reduced so there isn’t the selection there used to be. But we found some of our old favorites.

Food was very good yet not as wonderful as our first visit. Was told that they were experiencing challenges sourcing quality meats which could have been the difference.
