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!

After a recommendation we decided to have lunch at Gianni, but we were not very satisfied. This is fine dining restaurant and we were aware of that, but the food was not anything special compared to the price. My Tortellini in brodo di pollo was a disappointment, did not find any tortellinis at all in my soup and the dish did not taste actually anything. Calamaretti fritti was okay, but I have eaten better ones in the beach restaurants in Greece and Italy. The service was polite, but nothing remarkable. There are better places to visit in Tallinn.

There are two restaurants on the lower floor, on entering turn right for general restaurant, great breakfasts, lunches and blackboard of yummy specials for dinner.
Turn left for a more fine dining experience. If you turn left and you are a fan of risotto I had the BEST risotto of my life here !!!
Ate here during our stay for a Breakfast, a lunch, a couple of dinners and a couple of afternoon teas - none of which disappointed.

Very nice restaurant with excellent service and food close to Tallink ferry harbour (5min walk), rather pricey for Estonia though.

We went to Gianni for a late dinner. My choice was beef carpaccio with black truffle. The beef was garnished with the lowest quality not-ripe cherry tomatoes and stale pine nuts. The truffle resembled wood shavings. 13 euro
My secondi was catfish in hot tomato sauce. The fish was cooked to a cotton wool consistency and served in a mashed cherry tomato puree (see above) and some olives. There was hardly any salt or pepper to make it hot neither. 26 euro
The wine was good, the bread and olive oil on the table too.
Although this place has a good reputation in Tallinn, I will never go there again.

We are very sad to hear about your negative experience. We work hard everyday to give our guests positive emotions by offering food made with passion, the best wines from Italy and high quality service. But as it is in life, once in a while we make mistakes and not always everything turns out perfect. Sometimes however, it is just a matter of taste..
