Description: Giannis Ristorante Italiano starts it's story in 1984 when Giovanni and Filomena Ferrara opened their first family owned restaurant in down town Oranjestad, Aruba. As one of the first Italian restaurants in Aruba success was very quick to follow, through the years up to now the family has slowly moved from downtown to the new nightlife area in Palm Beach better known as the strip. Gianni's was the beginning of a family of restaurants across the island, always specializing in extraordinary culinary experiences. Today you can still meet some of the family in Gianni's, the Italian side of the Ferrara family originates from Castellamare di Stabia, a small city on the Napoli Coast in Italy. You can find the menu at Gianni's is geared more around Napoli food but as the years have passed and our customer base has grown, we have extended into other regions of Italy to create a more complete Italian experience for our customers. Gianni's is well known for constantly changing towards modern times and better ingredients, always looking to import the freshest and finest quality ingredients to enhance our customer experience. Our motto has always been; try to find the best, enjoy the best, and share it with our guests.

Dine inside or outside ... great menu, reasonably priced. When we were there a young lady was strolling around playing an acoustic violin - this place has lots of "atmosphere"! ... the Fettucini Alfredo was the best I've had!

We always make it to this place while in Aruba. Love the pasta wheel and always plenty of leftovers for the next day. Funny thing happened while we were there, my DH asked for hot cocktail sauce with his sprimp cocktail and they heated it up, lol. Yuk, but it was hot. Next time we will ask for extra horseradish.

First night it was a tried and true place. Seated us fairly quickly without a reservation. It's a large restaurant with big outside area. It was a hot evening but we enjoyed it nonetheless. Food was fine, nothing memorable, with very good pastas and something for the kids. Wait staff was very good.

Recently visited this place while staying at an all inclusive and needing a break. Food was great, service even better. We sat outside which was a little hot(yes I understand it is Aruba). My wife mentioned if we could sit inside and they said absolutely, we will get you a table. I didn't want to impose so we remained outside. About two minutes later the waitress rolled out a portable AC unit for us. Service was excellent and attentive the whole time. Thank you for a great visit!

We enjoyed our night at Gianni's. We had the broccoli rabe and sausage pasta and the shrimp pasta dish both of which were very tasty. The atmosphere is very nice we sat inside to avoid the heat and the mosquitoes and enjoyed it. Several patrons around us had the signature pasta (pictured) and were disappointed. Other than the 2 minute preparation show table side it is really just basic pasta with tomato sauce, I'd definitely recommend trying one of the other dishes. Overall this was a pleasant dining experience and good food so if you are looking for Italian on the island I would definitely visit Gianni's again.
