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 food

This restaurant is in the high rise section of Aruba so it was very busy on a Thursday night when we went without a reservation. The wait staff was attentive and the food and drinks were good. There were many large parties dining here. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. I had a... read more

Went here twice. Everything is so fresh. I had seafood salad, eggplant parm, and risotto. It is a beautiful and romantic property. I'll always visit Gianni's!

We went a few times on the last trip to Aruba. We sat at the bar each time and the service was phenomenal! The pasta was very good and the aroncini were delicious.

My husband and I return every year to Aruba, and Gianni's is always a must. We make reservations always requesting the same waiter every time, Jean Carlos. He is attentive, professional yet friendly, making us feel at home when have dinner. The food is also always perfect, never any complaints at all. A must dine for any Aruba visitor.

It has been a while since i have tasted such a great food. We ate at the bar on my friend's birthday. Our bartenders crispin and magdalena did an amazing work. We will definitely come back to Giannis next year.!!

Our waiter was Manny, and the service support was Samy. We ordered the cheesy spaghetti special, and it was soooo good. They bring out this huge cheese wheel and scrap out chunks of cheese, add whisky, lite it on FIRE and then stir it all together with the pasta. It's to die for! Not to mention, the free desert for...

We were a group of 6 adults. Two of us had their 'special', it was delicious but it was double the price of a regular entree!!! If you are going to order the special, be sure to ask the price first!!! Also, the spaghetti that is served in the cheese wheel.... What a great concept but the taste wasn't anything... More
