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.

“Attentive service and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Very traditional Italian restaurant with nice ambience. We did not need a reservation. Nice selection of traditional Italian fare. They do add a service charge. Had a guy on acoustic violin that provided nice background music.

“Our Favorite Restaurant in Aruba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

My brother and sister-in-law and I had dinner at Gianni's 3 times during our 10 day vacation Sept 26 -Oct 5,2013. We all agree that Gianni's has become our favorite restaurant in Aruba. The restaurant is open and airy and the food is superb. I would like to thank the following staff at Gianni's for their friendliness, and their outstanding service: William Garcia, Miguel Garcia, "Williams" Luis and Dilan". Also, a special thank you to Indry Chan. Thank you so much for the polenta appetizer. It was delicious!

Thanks again!

“Gianni's”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

This was our third trip to Gianni's and we found it disappointing.
Service was not great, appetizers were overcooked and the soup was served boiling hot to the point where we had to wait for it to cool. This time around it was not worth the money we spent.
