Always great service, best salads and grinders in Newington

We have always had great service, no matter how busy, both eat in or take out from Yanni's. Their salads are BIG and FRESH. Grinders are BIG and awesome tasting every time.

Driving by and seeing the full parking lot at lunch time was the tip off. Service was fine and the food was excellent.

I have tried everything in this restaurant and there is nothing I don't love. The service is always great. They are never short handed. The food is always hot. Not to dark and not to bright. Just right. They have the best pizza great garlic knots. The only thing I can think that I like least is the parking lot.... More

Pizza has always been consistently good. The entrees unfortunately are not. We have visited this restaurant since the day it opened and found the food to be really good until recently. We ordered the sausage and pepper special which was awful. Besides tasteless, the Main ingredient (sausage) was missing! The cavatelli, sauce and peppers were overcooked. We would have sent... More

My name is Kathleen M. and I have been going to Yannis with my boyfriend Tom since they opened and we have never ever had a bad meal there. They make us feel like family and the Owners are the BEST people I have even known. The mother and father Angie & Mike pitch in all the time and help... More

We have been going there since they had opened as it is right down the road from our home. John and George really do a great job in assuring quality, and take great pride in operating the business. It really shows.

The menu offers typical Italian fare. The chicken and broccoli, although a little heavy on the oil and garlic (I like it that way) is very tasty. So far we haven't found a dish we dislike. The place is small and cozy, about 15 booths, and the staff friendly and efficient.

This is one of those restaurants we head to when we want a simple homecooked meal. While the restaurant is small, the results are big! The service is good, the food is freshly cooked, and we always go home with leftovers due to the ample portions. The menu is varied and the take-out portion of the business seems to focus... More

This restaurant is always busy because of their very good food and service. Portions are large and make great leftovers for the next day. They make a great pizza and do a very busy takeout service. Parking is okay, but they could use more space.
