Description: Giannis Ristorante Italiano starts it's story in 1984 when Giovanni and Filomena Ferrara opened their first family owned restaurant in down town Oranjestad, Aruba. As one of the first Italian restaurants in Aruba success was very quick to follow, through the years up to now the family has slowly moved from downtown to the new nightlife area in Palm Beach better known as the strip. Gianni's was the beginning of a family of restaurants across the island, always specializing in extraordinary culinary experiences. Today you can still meet some of the family in Gianni's, the Italian side of the Ferrara family originates from Castellamare di Stabia, a small city on the Napoli Coast in Italy. You can find the menu at Gianni's is geared more around Napoli food but as the years have passed and our customer base has grown, we have extended into other regions of Italy to create a more complete Italian experience for our customers. Gianni's is well known for constantly changing towards modern times and better ingredients, always looking to import the freshest and finest quality ingredients to enhance our customer experience. Our motto has always been; try to find the best, enjoy the best, and share it with our guests.

I had the linguini fruti di mare it was recommended by a latino server. His name was Jose and he was tall. He gave me such excellent attention that I have recommended to my friends to go to giannis italian restaurant and to specificly go to Jose.

I have never heard so many mixed opinions. I can only tell you that we have been going to Aruba for many years and we have visited this restaurant four times in the last few years. The last time we went will definitely be the last time! You don't need a reservation because you wait anyway...not just a few minutes... More

I'm sorry to say that our first experience having dinner at Gianni's will be our last experience. Our waiter was abrupt and unfriendly, with no suggestions for restaurant specialties, and acted as though he were doing us a favor working there at all. Our food was worse than mediocre although the prices were quite high for what we ordered. The... More

This is the 3rd year we have come to Gianni's. It is the first time we have been disappointed. The service is very good and the snapper in a spicy marinara sauce was delicious. The mussels and salad were a disappointment. The bread was sub par and served frugally. The veal parmesan was also a disappointment. This will likely be... More

Disclaimer: My husband and I are snobs. We are accustomed to life's finer things. We know the difference between 5 star and deluxe, first class and business class. Gianni's is a large (touristy) restaurant in the center of the tourist area in Palm Beach. I was pleasantly surprised to have a delicious genuine Italian dinner. We started with a glass... More
