This place was a hot mess tonight. They have a back room that they don't let anyone sit in. The place was packed and people were waiting for a place to sit. Employees were seating out of order. We almost walked out.

Yum! Pizza is delicious and lots of room to find a place to sit. Go early, this place fills up fast. We always make a point to eat at Gianni's or at least get carry out.

We were looking for a place for the kids to eat so we could have a night out. This fit the bill. It was busy with lots of atmosphere. Pizza was their specialty. Pasta was offered but it was obvious pizza was their thing! Prices weren't great value but it fit the bill!

We just don't have good pizza where we live so Gianni's is always a treat. Just be ready for the crowd.

We visited late in the day and the place was still packed. Orders came out very quickly. Great regular pizza and authentic crust. Gluten free pizzas, although pricey, very tasty with lots of toppings and cheese. Everything served very hot which was appreciated on this very chilly night. Very friendly and helpful staff.

The front desk staff at our hotel told us this was the best pizza in town and I agree. It was very crowded, but worth the wait, it was great! On a Saturday night we had a 40 minute wait for our pizza (to go, there were no tables) but I'd wait again. We got a large pepperoni, garlic and... More

We wanted good traditional pizza in a neighborhood parlor setting. No chain and few tourists. Where voices are loud and jovial and service is consistent. We found it and so did the rest of the city! Despite the crowd we were served in an appropriate time frame and the food was delicious. We had their special pizza and a family... More

Great pizza and even better lasagna. It was so good I can't even find words good enough to describe it. Place was packed again. It's obvious that their great food isn't a secret.

We make a special point to stop here everytime we come to town. Everything on the menu is so good. They are busy here all the time. I have brought so many different family and friends here and they all loved it as well.
