Fine Italian Dinner Place !

I chanced to drop by Gianni's during my stay at Renaissance JB. Its a fine dining experience with friendly staff who could give some wonderful recommendations. The food and the ambience were good. The price is on the higher side given the decent Italian food. We ordered spaghetti and a nice thin... read more

This restaurant provides excellent service and the prices are all reasonable. The food tastes superb especially the lamb chop, homemade bread with vinegar and olive oil and mushroom soup. Will definitely recommend this to all my friends who love Italian food.

My favourite italian restaurant in JB. Food is superb, still tastes great after all the years, especially for its own made breads, the soups, pastas and pizzas (forget about the tiramisu though). Food quality is consistently good, something which not all eateries manage to do, nor continue to do well at. Service is good when the Chef owner is around.... More

I got lucky as the restaurant had just gotten some wagyu beef and that was the special for the night. Met the Chef proprietor, Hans Durst. again, lucky break, as he came to recommend some... More

I was in Gianni's a few days ago and was amazed at how it has changed. I've been a regular patron since the place opened, but along the way, I've switched to its sister restaurant, Sweetwater (reviewed separately). Anyway, Gianni's was fancier then. More cool, much more stylish, crowded with expats, reservations were necessary, and the experience was almost "fine-dining"... More

The lamb rack was juicy and topped with fragrant baked cheese. The side was the eggplant and cucumber. The taste was unforgettable with the... More

Gianni's is one of my preferred Italian restaurant in town, they serve set lunch at very reasonable price, their portion are very generous and not compromising the quality. I would only want to point out their cappuccino, they use good illy beans but dont know why are they compromised on UHT milk instead of Fresh Milk? Its a pleasure to... More
