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.

Good Italian restaurant in Aruba

The frutti de mare was fabulous as were the salmon and sausage dishes that were eaten here. Overall the atmosphere was delightful and they even had live music. We really liked our server, Sherley, who gave us good tips on what to order.

Fresh pasta dishes and an awesome atmosphere make this a great evening. Service is awesome and you can walk there from most nearby hotels without worry.

My wife and I ate at Gianni's last evening. We had eaten at the restaurant during our visit two years ago. Our second experience was disappointing. We had reservations for 8:30, and we were seating within five minutes. We place our order, salad and entree. The staff was friendly enough, but our waitress wasn't very attentive. I took nearly 40...

Gianni's is one of the best restaurants on aruba and always busy at night! Everything you order is good! The service is just the best. They always try to accommodate everyone and have an impeccable serving time. I have been there at least 6 times and i never had to wait long for food.

Went there without a reservation but no problem, had a table inside and it was perfect, so was the food. Little bit pricey but what restaurant in Aruba isn't?

My husband and myself have been going to Aruba for years. We have tried many restaurants and this one has become one of our favorites. We love the romantic feel of this restaurant.

Don't usually do the tourist thing but went to the high rise strip. Most restaurants owned by the same company. Food was excellent but really pricey. Upscale ambience and good service. Most meals priced from 22 to 38 USD.

Gianni's is in a tourist driven area, on a tourism driven island. The food and service is commendable. Not perfect, but nearly. The staff seem genuine and try to enjoy their jobs. The food the first visit was exceptional whereas our second trip was a bit less exciting. If you are going once and only once, then I'd strongly recommend... More

We had friends who recommended Gianni's. "You have to try the pasta in the cheese-wheel". We were in Aruba for a week and there were always large lines waiting to get in. The flaming cheese is quite a show. We saw it 4 times from our table including at our table. It's impressive. The spaghetti which comes out of the... More
