Really enjoyed our veggie pizza complete with artichokes from Gianni's. They have parking so it is not a hassle to pick it up.

Good food. But don’t eat at bar. Rude and misleading service. Unhelpful bartender. No followup or clarification on menu

I LOVE gianni's pizza. Have come here every time we are in town since I was a kid. Gooey cheese melting off and simple delicious crust. This is what pizza should be :)

Gianni's has a fun, loud, busy, full-of-character, homey, non-chain feel to it. We had the gluten-free pizza. It was the best we've had in years. That's a feat, if you've ever eaten a gf pizza. We wish we had a Gianni's where we live.

We went last week and they are not up to date. The pizza we ordered was actually $5 more than what is listed. We would have paid what we did, even if was printed on here correctly. But a $5 discrepancy should be updated ....

No deep dish, just Italian style crust- very good. The pizzas are topped with plenty of fresh ingredients. Parking is limited (FYI).
