In town for the NC Mainstreet conference and stopped in to have lunch. The restaurant was slammed with people but the staff was doing a great job taking care of everyone. I had a lunch special that came with a small bowl of soup, a salad, sandwich and rice pudding for dessert. It was only $7.95 so it was a... More

Both Greek and Italian selections were on the extensive menu. Typical for a Greek restaurant. I enjoyed the chicken piccata much more than my wife, the eggplant parm. There are better choices, but the price and selection make yiannis a good dinner choice.

It was a busy day and the staff was a bit chaotic, which is understandable. The Main St. Conference was in town and they were slammed at lunch. The cash register is in a terrible location with staff rushing by and slamming into you and I felt weird standing in line because I was in the way no matter where... More

We finally got to try this and we think it was really good. Myself and husband both got the gyro sandwich, very good but my husband said it was small. My son got lasagna and it was great and a lot of it. We will for sure go back.

Our hiking group has been stopping in here for ten years or so; when we come, we are hungry and looking for good food, service, choices, and a fair price. We have never been disappointed. The owner, who is from Brooklyn N.Y and very experienced in the restaurant business, knows what he is doing. The salads, esp. the Greek with... More

About 10 of us ate here in Dec. 2014. We order different menu items. We love the food and the food was the right temp to eat. Our server was jolly and had all the orders right. A great time.

The steak and cheese stromboli is one of the best I have ever eaten. You can sit on the outdoor porch and watch the sunset.

This is a restaurant that has survived in Morganton. There's something to be said for that. I was excited to see they had Saganaki finally. But if you have eaten it at other restaurants you might be disappointed. The owner himself brought it to our table. Asked if we orderded the the flaming cheese. We said yes. He set it... More

Yianni's is by far and away one of the best restaurants in Morganton. My husband and I eat there often. The Chicken Parmigiana is my favorite, the calzones are also excellent and as another reviewer stated the deserts are wonderful.
