Description: GIANNI is a restaurant of elegant atmosphere. It is the perfect place to have dinner for the classical Italian cuisine admirer. GIANNI's menu is known for its rich selection of fresh fish & seafood. Several dishes are completed in the dining room in front of the guests. Chef de cuisine Costantino Veglianti works with passion and offers exceptional tastes that are made of the freshest and best quality ingredients. Therefore you can often find seasonal offers in the menu. GIANNI's wine card represents all parts of Italy and the wine is carefully selected among smaller and less known but very high quality producers. Welcome to Gianni!

Our family went to Gianni for dinner and again the food was excellent. We have visited Gianni a few times earlier and the standard is as high as during our earlier visits. We started our evening by having a glas of Prosecco di Valdobbiabene by Le Colture, delicious! For starters our family members chose Carpaccio di manzo con tartufo nero, Vitello tonnato, and Carpaccio di salmone. Everyone was happy with their excellent starters. The only detail was that the Vitello tonnato was just a little to creamy but still very good. To drink with the meat starters, we had a bottle of Tuscan red wine, Le Volte by Tenuta dell'Ornellaia, a very good red wine. Our family member that chose the salmon carpaccio as starter chose a white wine, Pinot Grigio by Colmello di Grotta, very good dry white. For main course, most of us chose the Tagliata di manzo su rucola e balsamico. We asked fo medium but it came medium rare. Anyway, the meat quality was excellent so medium rare was OK. One of us had the Petto d'anatra all'arancio e balsamico, very good. For the main course we had the Tignanello red wine by Antinori, fantastic! To finish our dinner we had espresso and grappa, they have some very interesting grappas, we chose the Villa de Varda Trie Reserva, a fantastic grappa. All in all, a fantastic dinner and one of the best restaurants in Tallin!

This was my second visit at Gianni and from experience last time I knew that they make a really good. I took the pizza with parma ham and like last time it was amazing. This price is high compared to other lunch places in Tallinn but is worth the extra couple of euros.

This is a rather small but very nicely decorated cafeteria with friendly and attentive staff. A bit on the posh side even, but not over the top. The food is very good. I enjoyed cheesecake and tea. Superb! Prices are affordable.
I would go there again.

My wife and I decided on Gianni's base on recommendations from our friends when we were in Tallinn celebrating our wedding anniversary. Our friends were definitely spot on with their recommendation! The food is nothing short of excellent, especially the risottos (if chanterelles are in season you should definitely try a chanterelle risotto)! A specific thanks goes to our waiter Karl-Joosep who had a big role in making our dinner as perfect as it was. Seldom have I encountered a person more suitable for his profession! I would warmly recommend a visit to Gianni if you are in Tallinn. We're definitely going back!

Perfect late lunch on Sunday , no problem getting a table. The risotto with truffle was something absolutely amazing (risotto does look like risotto, you can't change that ) and none of the other plates let us down either. My sincere recommendations.
