Had a really nice business dinner on the patio. Ordered the chef's special tri-tip and was pleasantly surprised how flavorful and tender it was. The calamari strips were sweet and tender. Some of the best I have ever had. Service was attentive and outside patio was very comfortable.

This is s great place for lunch and dinner. We eat here often for lunch. The menu is loaded with great selections. Salads, hamburgers and many others. The French fries are the best around. They also have daily specials. The ribs are fantastic. Keep a watch on your receipt, they sometimes have coupons for your next visit. Try them out,... More

Great atmosphere, location, food, and service is what Giannini's has to offer. There is a wide selection of dishes that you will love. We visit GBG on a regular basis and have never been disappointed.

i went there for the first time to have lunch. It took a while to get seated, even though it wasn't busy. I asked for a very basic easy lunch. The funny thing was that the server, who I think might be the owner as well, called yellow squash zucchini. It's a cute place, but it needs more servers. There's... More

We've been here many times since they opened and have taken visiting family members there also. The service is always good and the food excellent. The dining area is small and intimate and very nicely decorated but the food is the star of the show. We have never had a bad meal here or even a so-so one. From seafood... More

medium size dining area, but a very nice outdoor table setting. Really nice on a warm evening. Food seemed rather Italian and food as well as wine was served with waiters and waitress showing great individual care. This is not a quick restaurant but a sit back and enjoy conversation with friends over wine and really good food.

Appetizers - bruschetta, ahi tuna crisps and calamari - great Menu - everyone got a salad and chose from bruschetta chicken, seared ahi salad, bacon... More

Our daughter's softball team held a dinner there. They were able to accommodate 45 people on relatively short notice. They were short-staffed, but they did a pretty good job anyway. The food was very good. I had the tri-tip, which was excellent. My wife had the shrimp combo. The fried was somehow better that the grilled. My kids had pasta... More
