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.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a waitress at another restaurant, and we were happy to have visited. The food was excellent and not as overpriced as other places we visited during our trip. It is Aruba, so everything is more expensive than you would expect, so you have to keep that in mind. Our server, Mauro, was excellent, and even provided us with his business card as we departed. They do not rush your meal, in fact you need to ask for the check or they will keep refilling your drinks and let you stay all night! The atmosphere was very nice, but certainly casual enough if you're not looking for an overly-romantic night out.

We ate here twice and the food was great. My husband fell in love with the lobster thermidor and had to go back for it a second time. Service was excellent.

Gianni's has excellent food; excellent service and a wonderful staff. You are met by John at the front desk .. who is friendly and provided specials for the day. Jean Carlos our Waiter (3 times) provided exceptional service. We had the seafood- Frutti with black spaghetti and for an appetizer the fried calamari. The food had the same consistency of excellence every time. One evening a violionist had been playing. We totally, totally, totally recommend this restaurant. The ambiance and the food makes for a wonderful dining experience.

This was our first visit to the island of Aruba and we did book all- inclusive but we met a couple that just went on and on about this establishment. We were there during the election time and we were unable to enjoy wine with our dinner, but the food turned out to be very good. But better than the food was the waitress, at first we felt like we were forgot about in the back. But after a few minutes she warmed up to us and we are glad that she did, she turned out to be the best person that we met, she made great recommendations regarding the food and apologized to us regarding the inability to have wine and suggested that we return the net night to enjoy the wine section. After dinner was over "Bibiana Cano" took time to educate us on the election returns and why the island stops alcohol sales until after the election, the school systems, the languages and made our dining experiences more pleasurable. Being from Texas we have been to many restaurants, some very good and some not so good, but Bibiana made our dinner that much better. She made us want to return there upon our return to the island, I just hope that she is still there.
