I ordered a pork dish. When I got to the center portion of the cut of pork, the meat was VERY cold. I asked the server to take the food back because the sight of it was making me sick. I didn't receive an apology or explanation. The server brings us our check and I asked if the dish would... More

Everything including the pasta is homemade. It is one of the best choices for Italian food in all Lake County prepared to order.. The restaurant has great large windows for looking out on Magnolia. When the weather is nice outdoor seating is also offered. At times the restaurant is very busy and the service isn't the best but the food... More

Cafe Gianni is our favorite Italian restaurant. Great upscale Italian food prepared to order. Get a window table and enjoy downtown Eustis at street level. This restaurant is small with an intimate atmosphere. Don't go there if you demand instant personal attention and avoid the place on weekends in season and holidays. Best to go on a weekday evening. Take... More

The restaurant is centrally located on East Magnolia Avenue. Had a great table right by the window - it was "Light up Eustis" night so there was plenty of people watching to do. Seemed to be a server/wait staff issue, as the host was also the server and busser. Mediocre tasting food for the price.

Café Gianni is our favorite Italian restaurant. Actually, it is our favorite restaurant in general! If we decide to eat out, this is where we go. No other restaurant can compare with the atmosphere, experience, cost, uniqueness, and most importantly…the authentic Italian cuisine! Out of 5 stars, I give Café Gianni 6 stars. The atmosphere is understated romance, not overdone.... More

Cafe Gianni is a gem nestled in downtown Eustis. The food is outstanding. Portions are large and food is made to order. Very fresh and flavorful. I look forward to visiting again.

Four of us ate there tonight. Salad was fair, and instead of those wonderful garlic knots rolls, we were, no kidding, given white bread toast triangles. Awful. The soup was awful too, so watery. The veal Marsala and three pasta dishes were very good. We had one glass of wine with dinner and the cost was $70 per couple. We... More

I last ate here a year ago but still remember it and plan to return (in spite of the recent spate of negative reviews). After noticing that it was the only upscale eatery in town, we planned to take a few family members there for our mother's 95th birthday lunch. We discovered that Gianni's didn't serve lunch that day and... More

After two very pleasant meals here, we brought business friends for what turned out to be an embarrassing evening. Nothing was up to the mark, but the service was breathtakingly bad. It was as if the dishwasher took over in a pinch. Surely this was not what the owner/chef had in mind. It will be awhile before we try again,... More
