Description: Giannis Ristorante Italiano starts it's story in 1984 when Giovanni and Filomena Ferrara opened their first family owned restaurant in down town Oranjestad, Aruba. As one of the first Italian restaurants in Aruba success was very quick to follow, through the years up to now the family has slowly moved from downtown to the new nightlife area in Palm Beach better known as the strip. Gianni's was the beginning of a family of restaurants across the island, always specializing in extraordinary culinary experiences. Today you can still meet some of the family in Gianni's, the Italian side of the Ferrara family originates from Castellamare di Stabia, a small city on the Napoli Coast in Italy. You can find the menu at Gianni's is geared more around Napoli food but as the years have passed and our customer base has grown, we have extended into other regions of Italy to create a more complete Italian experience for our customers. Gianni's is well known for constantly changing towards modern times and better ingredients, always looking to import the freshest and finest quality ingredients to enhance our customer experience. Our motto has always been; try to find the best, enjoy the best, and share it with our guests.

Awesome experience. This was the highlight of our trip.
All the waiters were extremely helpful, treated us with courtesy and gentle. Provided all information, and they made us have a beautiful romantic night.

“A great meal!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Our family ate here on our vacation. The food and the service were both spot on. My daughter and I split the Spaghetti al Formaggio Parmigiano and it was absolutely wonderful!!! We will definitely go back and I will most likely get the spaghetti again. Great service as well as a great outdoor atmosphere!

“Spaghetti al Formaggio Parmigiano is excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

We had a reservation and didn't wait to be seated more than 5 minutes. We visit Gianni's each year when in Aruba and I do not know why but this year was my first time ordering the spaghetti al formaggio parmigiano....Four of the six of us ordered this and it was amazing. I would recommend a meatball on the side. The portions are large. We loved the violinist. Our server Shirley Hassel was exceptional. Some in our party were smitten with her and before we left my 27 year old son proposed to her. Not sure if it was the food or the fact that she was pleasant and beautiful.

“Enjoyed this Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

The service was excellent and the atmosphere very nice. My one complaint was that I had a chicken parmesan dish with 4 chicken breasts. It tasted lovely, but was too much food and I would have thought spaghetti would have been on the plate.

“Great Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Looking for something light, and usually Italian is not the best choice, but had an awesome salad and a very light pasta dish with eggplant and tomatoes. It was excellent!
