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

I often wonder about the price but otherwise the cooking is expert, everything is done right and the table spacing is superior to say Chez Papa, giving this a more conducive environment for a quiet & private chat. Restaurant goes across two levels.

They offer variety of drink choices too. Service was good and staffs can interact with customers well. However, it is highly recommended for diners to ask the waiters to repeat orders twice as...

I went to this place (7.3.15) based on recommendation by fellow trip advisor. Having eaten Indian food each time we venture out i tried on Italian food for a change. Location not to be missed. Its the same row as Lavender. Receptionist gives proper direction towards their restaurant. Shop sign board is not loud. Warm environment with sparse lighting. I... More
