Restaurant is up the hill from downtown B-hem. Easy parking. Friendly front desk. (She remembered me from booking call.). Authentic blue and white tables. Airy. Plenty of room between tables. Upbeat, helpful server (Victoria). Comprehensive Greek menu. Many choices for mid-range Greek and domestic wine. Appropriate pacing of dishes. Straightforward preparations of fresh ingredients, made on site. Rivals any Philadelphia... More

We recently returned from a 10 day trip to Greece and wanted to find some of our favorite dishes here at home. We dined at Gianni's before but had no real experience with authenticAted food. I can say without a doubt that Gianni's food easily rivals the best food we experienced in Greece. The restaurant interior is classic Greek, but... More

Finally have found a place for delicious Greek food in the Lehigh Valley! Easy parking in ample lots. Interior atmosphere is crisp and relaxing-nice blue and white decor feels as if on a cruise ship. There is also an area for outside dining. The menu features numerous appetizers, lots of seafood and lamb, as well as traditional Greek comfort dishes.... More

Some of the best Greek food I've had. Friendly and attentive service and nice atmosphere. We asked our waitress for recommendations and loved all her suggestions. Nice Greek wine list too!

We came for happy hour on the advice of friends. The atmosphere is very pleasant with lots of different areas to sit: outside, large indoor area and more intimate bar setting with tables. We ordered the pitchers of red sangria - amazing! And one of us had the beer on tap - for HH. We also had 2 orders of... More

Hiding just off the main road, Route 378, at the edge of Bethlehem city - is a fair sized building hiding a treasure bedecked in blue & white. This Greek tavern is huge and never runs out of ambient sound nor atmosphere. Everything is so formal, but that plays to its advantage. The food is certainly palatable, and the staff... More

Several trips have confirmed my opinion that the food is fair, service is ok and overpriced considering what I just said.

Had the spit-roasted lamb, delectable fish, the eggplant-tomato combo, accompanied by the lemon potatoes, green beans, spinach-rice dish, Horta (greens), tomato-cucumber salad, the stuffed grape leaves, the beet salad and retsina. All excellent! Only disappointed by the mussels. One of us is gluten-free and dairy-free, thankful that the menu is marked for GF and vegan. The server also very helpful... More

The lamb chops and lamb shank here are excellent! The service was very good and helpful if you needed to have dishes explained. I will definitely return for more good foos!
