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.

Great meal

We all had a very good meal here. Staff was friendly and attentive. We sat outside but in retrospect I should have sat inside. Much cooler!

great food, great atmosphere, great service, great people. Go here every time we go to Aruba. Book a reservation before you leave if you really have a day and time you want to go. Weekends are busy and hard to get a reservation, need at least a few days, we book before we leave Canada.

We went to Gianni's on a recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed! Samy and Dilan were professional from start to finish and their recommendations exceeded expectations. Our meals were cooked to perfection and got better with each bite. The atmosphere was all about slowing down and enjoying the overall experience...which we so often forget. We will go... More

Williams and Samy were our servers. They were excellent and really friendly. The ambiance and location was great too. Most importantly, the food was amazing. My parents had the fish and pasta, which were great. I had the duck. Best duck I have ever had! Delicious. Highly recommended.

Went to Gianni's during our stay in Aruba and we were so pleased with the service, the food, and the atmosphere. Food was insanely good, and a lot of choices. Our waitress surprised us with a complimentary dessert since it was our honeymoon. Greatly recommended and will be back !

My friend and I had a great experience at Gianni's. We sat outside and people watched while we ate. The wait staff anticipated needs and met them. I saw something I wanted to try at another table after I had ordered and our waiter brought me some to try. I had the lobster and shrimp in vodka sauce. It was... More
