Creative Pies, more expensive than the website states

We called in our take-out order, based on their online menu. However, their prices are WAAAAAAAAAAY out of date. An order we expected to be approximately $35 was over $50. The guy explained that those were the prices on the Google Maps menu and they tried and tried to get them to change it, but we... read more

I would not expect to get great pizza in this part of the country. Gianni's is good, but nothing exceptional. Came here for a quick lunch upon arriving in Montery. A short walk from the Monterey Hotel & Spa. Run down on the outside, not bad atmosphere, plenty of seating. Order at counter, then your food is brought to your... More

Have eaten Gianni's pizza many times, but was inspired by a visitor from Europe who wanted gluten-free pizza to try the gluten-free. It was just as delicious as the other pizzas. They have great topping choices if you want them to build one to your specifications.

Great family place. Good selection of beers. Not gray wine selection. Pizza is good but way too much crust. Gets very very crowded at dinner around 6. Go early or late.

Front desk og hotel recommended Gianni's and we were not disappointed. Had take.out of the X-large Gianni's special. Tasty combination of ingredients, great pizza crust. Recommend. A bit pricey but it's Monterey after all.

Stumbled across this wonderful pizza place while on vacay. The pizza and breadsticks are too die for! Ambiance is great - kind of old fashioned Italian family restaurant vibe. Busy place but service was still pretty good. My mouth is watering just remembering the food! Heartily recommend!

My wife and I stopped here last Tuesday night. You would have thought it was Friday night. The place was packed. We ordered a medium Gianni 's special. Excellent. Fresh ingredients and lots of them. Great crust flakey and tasty. The sauce was ok. Good price good food.

The pizza is excellent and the staff is great. Unfortunately the pizza is excellent and the staff is great. I have only been there on Saturday nights but it is always very busy, so you may end up walking around with your finished pizza looking for a seat. I'm still debating about having the accordion player standing directly behind me.... More
