Been here many times....never bad food!!! It does get very busy, but it's worth the wait. Reasonable prices, full bar. I recommend the lasagna. Their garlic bread is good too. Good selection of gelato as well. This is not a white table cloth type of place...I'm only judging them on their food!

We've been going to Gianni's on and off for thirty years. It was a favorite when our kids were young and we still love it now that we are empty nesters. The pizza is fresh with quality ingredients. The place is packed most nights and you can see why.

Our family was in town visiting. The food was quite good and was a good value I thought. I overestimated the size of the pizzas and could have ordered a smaller pizza for our family of four. Quite a line ready to order when we left.

We arrived late and got a large pizza for 4 persons. It was a LOT of pizza for the price and very good. Would stop here again. Good value for the $$.

While I only wanted a meatball hero to go - the line to order was at least 10 people and no manager to jump in a help - by the time I got to order they ran out of meatballs so I order a veggie pie which took over 40 minutes to get to me at a take out yet... More

Delicious food, friendly staff. This is probably a local and tourist favorite. This is our 2nd time here. My boys love the food and so do we.

A straight forward self ordering pizza restaurant. The Pizzas were good although the edges were very dough heavy. Service is adequate.

We ordered a multi topping pizza which was delicious and a chees and pepperoni which had a weird taste. When we called in the take out order, we asked if they delivered and they said no, but when we arrived to pick up the pizza, it said they deliverer on a sign in the restaurant. Anyway, for a whopping $72... More

We attended here this evening for dinner after a long drive up the coast. We order appetisers, pizza and spaghetti with meatballs. We waited 15 minutes and one of the waiters brought the pizza to the table, my boyfriend told him we were waiting on appetisers as well as another main he said "oh" and walked away. We then waited...

What s surprise to order a sausage pizza and get chunks of sausage meat instead of slivers of sausage. The crust on the calzone was exceptional as it had seasonings on it. Gelato was excellent. We enjoyed all the food. The only disappointment was that the ladies room was a mess. I had to get someone to clean and restock... More
