This is one of our favorite restaurants close to home. The food is always fresh and fabulous. The service is impeccable! On the weekend you must make a reservation because it's always busy. It's a family run business and they do a marvelous job!

Papa Gianni's is a gem. First time here. Veal parmigiano was outstanding. Great homemade sauce, garlic bread, calamari was tender and a fantastic dinner salad. Good wine selection and great service.

I haven't given many 5 ratings, so I tried to find some reason to lower the rating but I could not except for the fact it is located in a mall but it is decorated so nicely it didn't matter. The veal saltimbocca and seafood pasta dishes' were both excellent and came with a nice salad and awesome garlic bread.... More

I have to travel 45 mins. to go to this restaurant. It's worth it for the Veal Dishes. Also the desserts are awesome.

Great food. The service is OK. They were slow to take our order and slower to bring the food. The prices were not terrible.

Great food, incredibly attentive service. I had one of their house specialties, the "Monalisa" -- Chicken breast, mushrooms and peas, served in a cream sauce over linguini. This was an unusual and excellent dish. The service was outstanding -- coming by at just the right times to see if I needed anything. At one point I was trying to read... More
