“like your Italian grandmother cooked it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

They have a lunch buffet Tuesday thru Friday that serves a large variety of hot and cold dishes. several salads and two soups daily. There is always a pizza served. The food is all home made with the hard to find Sicilian recipe items you dont see at may italian buffets. If you are Italian, you know that there aren't too many neighborhood places that offer food like you cook at home The pasta and cooking sauces are never bitter like chain type italian restaurants use. You will be pleasantly surprised!
keep up the good work John!!

“Great Homemade Italian Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Our family visited Gianni's for dinner Sunday and had a wonderful experience. The food was exceptionally good and the prices were very reasonable. From the warm oven baked bread to the succulent fried calamari, we couldn't be more pleased. We had chicken marsala, lasagna, and even sampled their thin crust pizza, which brought us back to the days before the "Franchise Pizza Products" arrived. The exterior of the building is in a strip mall type building, but don't be put off by it. The interior was updated, clean and very comfortable. The service was exceptionally efficient and the owner John was very accommdating and stopped by our table to greet us. We will definitely be back again to try additional entrees from the many choices of their menu!
