Though busy , this self serve pizza parlor was fast and efficient. Thick crust Pizzas were very good. Lasagne was nothing to shout about despite some other reviews glorifying it. Kids pasta portions are huge. They over charged us for one pizza we didn't order and the server went to get us our change right away. Good for large groups... More

My wife ordered the lasagna and I ordered a calzone. The calzone was good, but I have had slightly better before in other restaurants, however my wife's lasagna was out of this world!

We left the aquarium for lunch and had Ravioli, Sausage Pizza and Spaghetti with Meatballs. The pasta came with garlic bread. Great taste, but bring your appetite.

Casual place to enjoy some pizza pie. Their banquet room is a great location to have a less formal get together or meet with a larger group of coworkers. Be sure to call ahead if you have a larger group coming otherwise you may have to wait.

The. Best. Pizza. In. Monterey. Period. After too many sparsely topped pizzas delivered less than hot, it's so nice to eat a truly great pizza. Gianni's does pizza right.

The pizza was too delicious and they have a variety of dessert and full bar. We came here with a big group for a rehearsal dinner. They had a little back area for us which was private and nice. Restaurant was clean and the workers were friendly. All of the pizza I tried was good, my favorite was the Margarita... More

We heard the garlic bread was excellent so decided to give it a try. Well they are. We had a double peperoni pizza. It was very good the prices are fair. The restaurant is a place your order and find a seat. Worth stopping by.
