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.

A classy Italian. Please, no flip flops and pedal-pushers. Dress up a bit; show some class. Eat outdoors under their large, long covered patio. Our table was ready at the appointed time. The service was very good, but a bit off of big-city "5's." Surprisingly good wine list. Not surprising: mostly Italian. Food - very good. Value - expensive, but... More

Went to Gianni's hoping for better. Though the food was good, we ate indoors to find it loud and with echos of other diners. The service was efficient but indifferent. It had a factory feel to it, though again, the food was fine. There's also an outdoor area, but that offers street noise with even more tables. This is a... More

There was not anything specifically wrong just overall was not pleased or impressed. Waited 30 minutes while there were open tables. Service was slow. Had much better service from the assistant waitress then our waiter. The food was average at best.

The food was excellent - my wife had grouper and I had veal. It was very tasty. Everything was al la carte so any sides you wanted were extra. Entre prices were comparable to other restaurants that include 2 sides with your entre. That made the meal more expensive than it should have been. Our waiter was a bit surly... More
