So authentic!! I ate the salmon fetuccine and my mother had the primavera pasta. With a glass of read Chilean wine - it was crazy good! - we are also Italian and were very pleased. Service was very professional as well. Make sure to make reservations first.

We used to love Gianni's and would return every year but this year the food wasn't good at all. That being said the wait staff performed well and they always have performed well. I'm not sure why the quality of food has dropped so significantly but as a result will likely keep us from coming back.

My wife and I were drawn to this restaurant like rats to a cheese wheel, and finally on our last night in Aruba we walked in to ask about the GIANT CHEESE WHEEL! The cute and friendly hostess Amy told us all about the cheese wheel and led us to some cheese wheels to pose for pictures with it! We... More

First I want to thank Miguel and Samy for excellent, non-stop service with great recommendations for our meal. The overall experience was worth it, although pricey. It was worth the trip. they use nice cloth tablecloths and napkins, etiquette is of that of a higher end restaurant.

We went to this place twice because it was right in front of our resort. My first thought was how could this be very good such a large restaurant. The first time I was pleasantly surprised. I had clam pasta and my wife had the veal Parm and they were both pretty good! The 2nd trip we tried the spaghetti... More

After being in Aruba for 5 days we were craving good pasta so we figured we would give Giannis a try due to the awesome looking pasta cooked table side in a cheese wheel. We started with a salad and the muscles which were great. The salad was a bit small but the dressing was awesome. We both got the... More

They call it a fancy Italian restaurant, the food was straight out of a can. I've tasted field rations that where and are better. The food was cold the chicken parm had bones in it. Didn't even drink and the meal was extremely expensive almost 200 for two. Would recommend going to Casa Tuga any day off the week....

Thank you for your review! We are sad to hear that you did not have a great experience at Gianni's Ristorante Italiano... We use only use fresh Italian products, our sauces are made daily and are always served fresh. the chicken parmigiano does come with bones to give it a fresh yet juicy taste. We are aware that there are... More

My daughter and I are craving this dish we had last week. This is a MUST if you dine here. Outdoor/indoor seating and gets very crowed. Right across from the Radisson. They also own the Pizzaria next door, the steakhouse and the Gelato place. We went to all four and loved them all! If you want a more romantic/quieter setting... More

We ate here twice in one trip. The food was absolutely delicious. Portion sizes are just right. I wanted everything on the menu. The restaurant gets very crowded so it's recommended to have a reservation.

We have dined at Gianni's at least once every trip (4 and counting) to Aruba. We have always been ok with no reservations being seated promptly. This time we we told we would have to wait and no outdoor seats were available. It took several minutes until a bartender acknowledged us but we were then taken care of although my... More
