Description: Gianni's Ristorante Italiano starts its story in 1984 when Giovanni and Filomena Ferrara opened their first family owned restaurant in downtown 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 originate from Castellamare di Stabia, a small city on the Napoleon Coast, you can find the menu at Gianni's is geared more around napoleon 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.

Giannis is a great restaurant, good food, but the service leaves something to be desired. Was attended by very bad tempered waitresses, seemed unwilling to work, doing a favor to the consumer. The restaurant has a good atmosphere, prices do not escape the pattern of Aruba. Everywhere I went in Aruba left a 10% tip, but made ​​sure not to... More

We returned to Gianni's Restaurant again this year and enjoyed our meals more than some of the other establishments we ate at. There is a great selection of entrees and appetizers with large portions. Prices are comparable to other restaurants on Aruba but drink prices were higher. Jack Daniels on the rocks was $10!!! It is a very large restaurant... More

Another of the many restaurants in the high rise hotel area of Aruba. Gianni's did not disappoint. Our dinner was very good and on par with some of the better Italian meals I've had. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the entire staff was very professional and accommodating.

The owner of this place is half Arubian (if that's a word) and half Italian. Of course it was some of the best italian food my wife and I have tried in a while. Great soup and in-house cheeses!

Everyone says this food is amazing in the island. They are right. You can walk there from all hotels which is nice. We ate soon much. I tried the rigatoni in pink sauce and it was to die for.

This restaurant looks very visually appealing and the service was great. We settled here one night after wandering around without reservations and finally decided to just go here. It was a mistake. In a week of great meals on Aruba, this was our only regret. Food was beyond average at best. I am not a fan of the Olive Garden... More
