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.

Gianni's is a very good restaurant, but I think it is a little overpriced. The service was excellent, the food very good. We both ordered a pasta special with shrimp and lobster meat which we enjoyed.

This place is great, discovered it when we were walking back to the resort from another restaurant nearby. It was so packed, we figured it must be good. Looked at the reviews and decided to eat there the next night. It's a beautiful place with high ceilings inside, spacious and very classy. Even the bathroom was nice, there was a... More

Whenever I travel to Aruba, I always eat at this great restaurant. A special thanks to our waiter/waitress (Crispin Figueroa and Magcla) who provided outstanding service. The food is always excellent!!!!

We brought a large party for dinner without a reservation late in the evening (8ish) and our wait was about a half hour - not too bad. The food was good, although service was really slow. We didn't get our 2nd glasses of wine until we had finished dinner so had to send them back. Overall the ambience was good... More

We did not have a reservation and were seated immediately. We were warmly greeted by our waiter and served soon after we ordered. The service and the food were both awesome! A one man band played in the background and was a nice addition. I highly recommend Gianni's!

I'm from New York, my mother makes her own sauce every year. We grate our own cheese. And we make our own pasta. So I will tell you that this place is as close to home cooking you will find. The pasta is amazing. The burrata is creamy. I highly highly recommend!

This is a large restaurant. Mostly outside dining but under an awning. It was very good food and service. Not great but definitely very good food. There was a guy singing Italian songs but it wasn't noisy.
