Great service, really nice people, great wine list, awesome traditional bolognese food! Try tortellini in brodo and the true tagliatelle alla bolognese.

Trattoria Giannia is an authentic bologna restaurant with excellent service, wonderful food and good value for money. We noticed a lot of locals come here for lunch and takeaway, I think its a best kept secret in town ! As a tourist, we feel like home ! We had our best Tagliatelle con Ragu and Tortellini in Brodo here so... More

Had brodo in a couple other places and this was the best. This is a small intimate restaurant near P. Maggiore. Menu in Italian. Waiter spoke enough English and we knew enough Italian to get through it. Was a delicious meal. My wife had their version of tortellini in ragu. Again had it elsewhere but here was fantastic. Fresh.

We adored this restaurant and went back for 2 additional meals (one lunch, one dinner) during the week we were in Bologna. My husband discovered 'lardo' there, and has since ordered it over the internet, but it never quite equalled the experience @ Gianni.

This is a good trattoria, well attended by locals. If you go without a reservation, get there before 8:00. We got the last table and many were turned away. They serve the classics, well made with good service. Everything was good, but nothing stood out.

If you are looking for over priced small portions with terrible descibtions of what is to come... this is your place! The waiter thanked me so many times for my money I was sure he saw my disappointed face. I thaught nuvelle cuisine portions had nothing to do with 'tratoria italiana'.

We had the traditional tortellini in broth and gnocchi Bolognese. Excellent!!!! Misti Salad was fresh and semifreddo with strawberries and balsamic a lovely surprise. Well trained and attentive staff. Couldn't fault this restaurant at all.

Da Gianni serves the classic regional food of Emilia-Romagna that makes Bologna famous all over Italy. The food is extraordinary and the service is excellent. The wait staff takes a professional interest in seeing that you dine well. There is rarely an empty table at Da Gianni so we always make a reservation before we get to Bologna. Diners come... More
