Dinner

Very good value and extremely comfortable surroundings. No problem obtaining a table and service was fast and efficient. We were not 'rushed' but felt we were welcome to stay all night, though we didn't.

We arrived on Friday and were shown to our table. After sitting down we waited 20 mins before being asked about a drink and struggled to get staff attention. My boyfriend thought his scollops tasted frozen and my pizza was very average. We asked for bill and waited another 20 mins for it. It is a nice restaurant on a... More

Garlic bread with cheese was very greasy and the pasta dish was tasteless! The pizzas were very small and again tasteless. The only good point was that it was cheap.

Food is really nice. Good if your on a budget for happy hour. Good choice of Italian food. Atmosphere is great. Very cosy. Service isn't fab though. Can be reluctant to smile or want to help you. The times I have been I got the feeling the colleagues didn't like working there. I like the food though. Don't order water... More

We love coming to Giannis. The food is next to nothing, we visit often and have never yet had a bad meal.! I've been at normal prices and been at happy hour and food is still the same quality and quantity.! Lovely atmosphere. Highly recommend - Lasagne is so damn good by the way.
