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

Great place to go for a meeting or a date. Wonderful atmosphere and great food. They have good lunch specials that are quite reasonable Monday through Friday. I really enjoyed my lunch here.

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.

Very cool room set up exclusively for parties. Prix Fixe menu set up ahead of time. We had 30 people and though a little tight, after the drinks got flowing no one knew any different. 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

My family has been regulars at Giannini's for years and would normally give them a five star rating. Unfortunately, with our last two visits, something's been out of place. One visit's balsamic salmon salad was soggy and my wife's most recent order of seafood Pomodoro was overcooked. Even with these recent isolated experiences, I must give them a 4-star rating....

We go here for brunch a lot. Love the fish sandwiches. Also the house dressing is great. Have had the pasta also very good. They have a theme night 3 or 4 times a year which is a lot of fun for a different dining experience.
