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

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.
