This is by far the best Italian restaurant in Scarborough, great choice and good service by Gianni and his family. I can honestly say we have never had a bad meal there in the 8 years we have lived in Scarborough, we recommend this Italian to our guests all the time and everyone says they have enjoyed their meal.

Having visited Scarborough annually for the past 7 years I can't believe this was our first visit to Gianni's. We booked in advance which was definitely required and we weren't disappointed. Great flavours, good service and a really nice feel to the restaurant. Will definitely return.

The last two meals we had at giannis. Have been a disaster although we don't live in a world of perfection when you get hairs and elastic bands in your food you shouldn't be threatened with the police when you refuse to pay for the meals in question never again

Rubbish as a heading perfectly describes this poorly written and more importantly, completely fabricated description of my restaurant. I have been in this business a very long time and have built up a very good reputation based on mutual respect for my customers. I have a duty of care to my customers and strongly believe that bonafide complaints should be... More

Dear Bigun02 Thank you very much for your complimentary feedback, it is much appreciated. Regarding air conditioning; as the building is Victorian, with openings on different levels, air conditioning is not a viable option, our staff however, would be most happy to open windows or turn on fans. We try to be as competitive as possible when pricing drinks, only... More

I'm not a great Italian food eater in restaurants as they usually use too much garlic for me BUT I had the Penn Popeye & it was delicious followed by taramasu. Beautiful surroundings, friendly staff & even my granddaughter enjoyed tasting everyone else's dishes. Different sections so even a large party could have a section to themselves . Very enjoyable...

Paid a visit to Gianni's on Saturday evening with my family, anticipating a nice meal and good atmosphere. The starters were average, we waited a long time for the main course but when it did arrive it looked quite nice. However on the first bite I discovered a piece of what looked like copper strands in my pasta, I then... More

Dear Heather. Thank you for your complimentary comments regarding the service,food and atmosphere. As our restaurant has five separate areas, a lot of our tables are corner tables which many customers prefer. We are always happy to change tables to suit individual preferences.
