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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The lobster was not only delicious, it was huge. We started with fresh oysters which were also delicious. I wouldn't recommend the steak unless you like your meat in a sauce.

We have visited Aruba 6 times. We frequented Gianni's on the first 3 trips then we tried some different Italian restaurants on the island. At last nights dinner at Gianni's we both agreed this is clearly the best Italian restaurant on the island and it might be the best run restaurant on the island. Every aspect of the experience was...

The hotel concierge set us up with a reservation to Gianni's. We came 15 minutes early and were shocked to see just how large the restaurant was. They couldn't cater to us right away, so they gave us a lighted-pager that would ring/flash when our table was ready. We sat for a few minutes near the bar, without the pressure... More

Delicious Italian fare! I would definitely recommend. Went as a couple, but also there were plenty of families. They even had a clown making balloon animals for kids.

From the looks of this place I was expecting way more. The food was average at best, but way overpriced for the portion size. $30+ for a chicken parm dish with no sides!! 2 small pieces of chicken with no taste. They even charge per drink refill. I left feeling ripped off. I was disappointed and would not return, you... More

Granted I had no expectations for good italian food on a caribbean island, but be that as it may it was beyond subpar. However, It may be good Italian if you like Olive Garden. Let me break down the entire experience. Arrival: We arrive around 8:50pm and were seated promptly as requested, the highlight of the night. Seating: Upon being... More
