Have heard about this outlet for years. Just another overrated restaurant. Very expensive also. Parking lots are short. Quite a wait for food though it was not crowded when we visited. I think mostly patron the restaurant due to publicity. Doubt customers will revisit the second time with the exorbitant charges and unremarkable food.

After having forced to stay at dodgy hotel New York in JB (due to work placement), dining at Gianni's Trattoria was indeed a treat. There are 2 Gianni's in JB, and I have been to both. I must say, the food quality maintains the same - exquisite. I visited Gianni's in Pelangi a few years back. This trip, I got... More

One of the better Italian restaurants in JB. General ambience is cosy and nice. Customer service is prompt and friendly.

What a shame - our friends and I finally discovered a decent Italian restaurant close to our home in Permas Jaya. The food had been lovely and while one of the waitresses always looked to be in a bad mood, the service was generally good. That is until tonight. Three of us were dining in with pizza, two fruit juices... More

If it wouldn't have been for Gianni's the Malaysia leg of the holidays would have been almost a complete disaster. Unfriendly people wherever you go. Feeling cheated all the way. Even haggling in the markets Izmir no fun at all. Having lived in SEAsia for more than 17 years this country is the worst. But as it is there are... More

Best value is when you order the set lunch which varies daily and provides different variety choices. alternately, if you prefer dinner, a la carte, the meat choices are excellent and the wine menu is quite extensive. Value for money if you want to go to a upper class restaurant in JB town.

Dropped by for dinner. Staffs weren't interactive enough and didn't even smile. The food was just average compared to the high prices we paid. Sorry but it wasn't special for me and my business partners.

We had the lamb shank, pasta carbonara and the fried calamari. The lamb shank was the best, although there is a strong "meaty" odor, but we didn't mind. The pasta was fine, but in my opinion, a little small in terms of portion size. The fried calamari was quite tasteless, rubbery and the side sauce did nothing to help its... More

The pizzas here are fantastic. Used to come here often just for them. The rest of the menu is good too, especially their deserts. If you're looking for an Italian restaurant in JB, this place is a must visit.
