We booked this restaurant on general advice from people in Scarborough.
It was a special occasion secI expected something extra.
It was good but a bit overpriced and I docked a star as the service left a bit to be desired.
Nonetheless it still deserves a recommendation particularly for steak

Food always tip top. Good variety, fresh and home made hearty Italian food as it should be.
Never disappointed in three visits over 18 months.
Service friendly and efficient and excellent value for money.
Off the beaten track but well worth the walk.

Went to Gianni's for a pre-theatre meal. The decor of the restaurant is very nice and the staff are friendly and reasonably attentive. The starter that my partner ordered was unavailable, so he had to settle for smoked salmon and prawns rolled up like ice cream cones. These looked a little dull and came without bread and butter or wedges of lemon - the lemon had been cut with a 'bacon slicer' and was therefore impossible to squeeze - my prawn cocktail was tasty and came with a slice of focaccia. For mains, I had a pizza whilst my partner opted for penne pasta in a creamy sauce. All I can say is that, had I not given him a few slices of my pizza - which was actually very tasty - the theatregoers would almost certainly have heard his stomach rumbling above the performance later that night!!! All in all an average but not unpleasant experience.

Gianni's does good, honest, tasty Italian food. Service is also good (Uni students doing some waitressing and making a good job of it)? It really should be ranked higher in the Scarborough restaurant list; it is so much better than many of the mediocre places, briefly fashionable, which are masquerading as restaurants in Scarborough. Nicely decorated too, not too noisy, a pleasant place to sit and share a meal with friends. We had fillet steaks and pizzas, both very tasty and fresh, though the fillet was overcooked (just a little) there was not much else to complain about: the veggies were fresh and not overcooked. The chips were truly magnificent. Gianni's is not cheap, somewhere between Florio's and CoGonis, as indeed so its food, but erring on the side of CoGonis. It is a good restaurant and we would happily go there again. The puddings were tasty too. The crème brûlée was delicious. Recommended: book ahead, Gianni's is popular. Good Early Bird menu too. A recommended choice when visiting Scarborough.
