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.

Solid food, a tad pricy

We had a nice meal at Giani's, although I wouldn't say it was anything over the moon. The pasta dishes were a bit on the pricy side, even compared to NYC pricing. Quality of the food was good, though.

Located in the Hi Rise Hotel are, Gianni's is easy to get to, Spacious indoor and outdoor seating is available. We didn't have a reservation so we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table which was very reasonable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We started off with Oysters for our appetizer and they were some of... More

We wanted italian and since we were staying right across the street we figured why not check it out. They had a buratta special listed on their board so that sold me (no price listed). We ordered the buratta appetizer and our entrees. Food was just OK and pricey, but when check came i almost lost it - the buratta... More

On my first trip to Aruba, I discovered Gianni's Ristorante Italiano. Amazing! The food was delicious, the ambience very nice, and the service outstanding! We sat inside the restaurant but they did have a nice outdoor seating area. Everyone was so friendly! Shirley, our server, made us feel so welcome. She was the perfect combination of professionalism and charm. We... More

We've been her a few times in the last 2 years. The outdoor an indoor seating is a nice option, its such beautiful weather in Aruba. They usually have some type of live music, but relaxing, very nice. The food is always great. We have never had a bad meal.

Hands down favorite Italian restaurant on the island. Not just for the delicious food, but service and ambience as well. Their pasta dishes can compare to the amazing Italian dishes of my city New York!
