Our large family loves this place!

This is a stop for us on every trip. We all like the pizza and the family-style setting. If kids are in your party, they'll be able to make noise and move around without anyone giving them a second glance....and the grownups can get a nice adult beverage, too. The gelato bar always ends the visit... read more

If you are looking for a hometown atmosphere to enjoy a homemade pizza, look no further than Gianni's Pizza. I am from Midwest and wanted pizza from the area in Monterey, CA. We found this restaurant and loved it. It is very busy, but there was more than enough staff to accommodate the volume of costomers. Lots of room in... More

My 21 year old daughter and I wanted a local pizza place while we were in Monterrey for her Spring Break. Boy, did we find the best place for pizza! It is a nice walk from the pier and very safe. You order at the counter, then seat yourself so there is no need to tip, which was also a... More

Fantastic pizza place and family friendly! The Caesar salad wasn't very good. They have beautiful homemade bread sticks. I didn't try the gelato because it looked like it had all melted earlier.

I always go to Gianni's when in Monterey. The pizza is wonderful. They offer salads, wine, beer, gelato, and more. Its a casual atmosphere perfect for a day in from the beach.

One of the most popular restaurants on the peninsula. Great Italian food, pizza, gelato, and they have a bar. Little pricey but good. Also great for parties as they have a large room in the back.

We stopped here on a whim as we drove by. The restaurant itself is straightforward and no frills. We arrived a little before 11am and the place was empty but that changed quickly. By the time we left around 12:30 the place was packed. We had the Super veggie pizza, garlic bread and a cheese pizza. Everything tasted fresh and... More
