First time we visited since it's new name, (don't be put off by its new branding), were as pleased as ever, the food is brilliant; great ingredients, fresh, very tasty, great service. Best restaurant in the light, forget all the chain restaurants and venture to the authentic Italian one!

Very impressed, the staff were extremely efficient, very well run. The restaurant was full but everyone seemed to be happy, not too long a wait for the food. 2 pizzas which were delicious, one wine and one orange juice £28. Worth it and would return if in the area. Would recommend.

This is one of the best Restaurants in Leeds in our view. The food is great staff very friendly and helpful nothing is too much trouble. Great value for money. We called on Saturday night very busy (in all the Restaurants) but the staff got the two of us in. Would highly recommend this establishment.

I have been to Gianni's several times. I prefer independent restaurants to big chains. (This said, Zizzis in the Light is also worth a detour).
I have had several pizzas and desserts and have had no hesitation inviting others or telling others to try Franco's. I would most likely come again but... I was a bit disappointed tonight.

I had a special: a Pizza Mare. Fantastic selection of ingredients on the pizza including juicy king prawns. A few niggles. I think the chilli was unnecessary. The pizza was slightly lacking in flavour though, possibly a lack of seasoning. A bit (more?) flavoured olive oil would have added something too. The pizza was very generous though and partly thanks to a lot of conversation, it took me a lot of time to finish it by which time it was cold, but that's hardly the restaurant fault!

The price was pretty acceptable, slightly on the high side.

Another good point was the absence of music. As the restaurant was not busy it was the perfect place for a good conversation.

Was really impressed with the pasta meals, tasty & plentiful & reasonably priced. My daughter had a pizza which again wasn't overpriced for a city centre location.
Would certainly visit again if in Leeds.
Beer was a little pricey though
