Reviewed September 8, 2020

Prior to the virus, Gianni’s was the best place around. Since the virus, I had carry-out pizza three times, which were all subpar. I thought it was a fluke, and gave them another chance. Nope, it was no fluke….it was terrible again! A simple 3-topping...pizza was extremely underdone, soggy and limp. I’d pick up a piece, and all the toppings would slide off. In the past, the sauce was excellent, but now it is flavorless, and barely covered the pizza. There is a giant rim of soft bread around the perimeter which looks like a bicycle tire. I think it is “supposed” to be the crust, and it is also flavorless. The sausage is very spicy and overpowers the non-existent flavors of the other components, giving it no balance, and only vaguely resembles the taste of a pizza. I don’t know if Gianni’s is under new management, or new kitchen staff, or are using cheaper ingredients, but it is not the same as just ten-months ago. And oh….they raised the prices too. A three-topping large pizza was nearly $23. I WILL NOT be going back.More

I picked up a pizza there yesterday, after ordering online, and NOT ONE EMPLOYEE WAS WEARING A MASK. I will not be back -- will only patronize restaurants that are following the coronavirus guidelines, for the safety of their employees and their customers.More

Not only are they reasonably priced for a nice family dinner, but you can always count on your food to be hot, fresh, and exactly as ordered. Their pies are authentic, the staff is pleasant, and don't overlook their baked hot wings. Delicious!More

Thank you for pointing out that we are authentic. I am from NJ and lived just across from NY city and also lived outside of Philly in South Jersey. I tell customers all the time that our pizza is a real NY pizza in taste...More

With two trips in the last month, once with an infant and once with a toddler and an infant we've got give them a kid-friendly shout out! Not only did they handle all kid related items in stride we were quickly seated with as a...group of six and a group of eight. The wings were large, tasty, and had a nice variety of sauces. In addition to the usual pizza combinations, they have a deep dish Grandma's Pizza. The crust was crispy and this was the favorite for our group. Definitely will return.More

I flew in from Maine today. My family took me to Gianni's in Bradenton for dinner. We had a white spinach pizza with gramma crust. It was delicious. Just wish I could have ate more. Oh wait, there was left overs. Having pizza for lunch!...If you like NY style pizza or just pizza in general, you have to try Gianni's. The staff and general manager were great.More

Our Grandma crust that we bake in our pizza pan seasoned with olive oil providing a thicker crispy crust is amazing. So happy you enjoyed our pizzeria. Thank you for the great review.

We absolutely LOVE this pizza restaurant. We live in the adjacent neighborhood and this place is our Go To. We typically get pizza takeout (every 2 weeks) - our favorite is the Grandma Pizza. The absolute BEST sauce, fresh mozzarella cheese & basil. The dough/crust...is to DIE FOR! I highly recommend it and we also really like their Greek Salad & garlic knots. I grew up with an Italian grandmother - hence extremely picky about “sauce” - Gianni’s has the absolute best - very flavorful. Everything is very tasty, fresh and you can tell all are made with quality ingredients. If you are looking for a very reasonable Italian restaurant - this is a great choice for dine in or takeout.More

We ordered a meat lovers pizza to go. It was delicious. There was an abundance of toppings and the crust was. The staff was so friendly. Great place.

A word of warning for parents of young children: this is not a kid friendly place, unless you want to sit your kid down in front of the screen. The owner (and mean mugging ridiculous staff) seem to take pride in maintaining a fine dining...environment ... in a slice by slice pizza place. Even for Bradenton, a little too overzealous. Much better pizza in a number of other places, so won’t bother to return, kids or no kids. What a bizarre experience.More
