Penne Alla Vodka
The service was great, the food was very good with generous portions. The decor is authentic Northern Jersey Italian - very homey. We went early on a Monday night so was likely quieter than usual but the place filled up while we were there. The management was very hospitable. Would definitely go back.
Great place to go for any occasion. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. The food is always good.
Once again, Gianna's outperforms all local eateries! Met up with friends and after a very nice cocktail at the bar, we were escorted to our window table. Appetizers were fantastic! A special request of papardelle w/mushroom & sausage in EVOO & garlic were made to perfection. This dish was not on the menu, yet there was no pushback when we ordered. Gianna's accommodates most "special requests". The evening was capped with a terrific coffee & after dinner drink. As always, a highly enjoyable evening.
See you later this month Gianna's!
Arrived to an overflowing dining room. All seats occupied yet our reserved table by the window was waiting for us. We were celebrating a birthday as were a number of other tables. Gianna's did not miss a beat. Food was prompt, hot, delicious. How they manage to accomplish this with such an overflow of people is a tribute to management and staff. Our veal and chicken dishes were exquisite. We ordered family style, which meant plenty of extra food for a substantial "doggie bag". two hours later, we left well satiated, "care packages at hand and as always, very content.
A special place with special people. Make it a point to visit once if you have not been here before! A real treat! Thank you!
Always great dining at Gianna's. Great food and service with a down home feel. It's a regular place for us.
Food was delicious, and everything was prepared well. I had the Straccatella Florentini. It was good, maybe a slight touch bland. I had the Valentine's weekend chicken special and my wife had the Linguini Alla Gianna. Both were cooked perfectly and delicious. The desserts were also excellent.
It was a bit tight, but it was Saturday night on Valentine's weekend. The menu was a bit boring. It had all the standards, but there was nothing on there that jumped out at me. Perhaps another weekend without the Valentine's Day menu may be better, but I can only judge this on my one visit.
The decor is nice, but the tables are a little too close to each other for me. Also, it was very well lit, perhaps a little too bright for dinner.
As a result, it only gets a four star rating. I would certainly come back here again. You won't be disappointed in the food if you go.
The staff is very friendly. The mussels are amazing. The food is very tasty and well prepared. I thought the dinner portions were a little small for the price(my only complaint). The desserts are very good and a nice size.
Gianna's is always excellent! The long hots and gnocchi are delicious. Love the ice cream cake dessert options. Service is always exceptional. We've gone to Gianna's for Valentine's Day for years, because we've always been pleased that they offer their full menu on the holiday.
Never disappoints. Food is great.
We had a party of 13 and everyone was happy with all the food and the service was fast.
Great food great service nice people
My personal favorite restaurant
Food is consistently good at Gianna's. Been coming here for years. Always get the same thing too. Salad, chicken parm, penne a la vodka and Ghost Pines wine.
Food and service was excellent. Traditional old world Italian just like Mama.
Exactly what a perfect, family Italian meal should be.
Terrific food, generously sized- to share, take home for another meal.
Superb in-hous desserts.
Not for dieters ;)
The attention to detail from service to food and follow up on all requests was exceptional
Service was not rushed and servers top notch
I searched for an Italian restaurant during my recent visit to the area. I never expected it to be so delicious!!!!!!! The good was amazing.... very authentic. The price was great! We shared a family sized eggplant parm, which each had a dinner salad, bread and penne. The cost was under $30!!!!!!! I highly recommend and will be Babi next time I’m in town
Exceptional as always! It's hard to find a better red sauce then mine --- Gianna's could beat it!
The food and services were great from start to finish. Although i had been there before, this visit was even more memorable than the last.
Food was high quality, service and atmosphere were very good, but the prices were too high, unless you get your group's meal family-style.
Went with 5 people split 3 family style dishes and came home with another day's meals. Food is very good very reasonable prices for food and drinks, We really like enjoy coming here.
Requested a window table and upon arrival, received a warm greeting by staff and management. after a nice cocktail at bar, we were seated and ordered a very reasonably priced bottle of red wine. We shared a delightful, large plate of fried calamari as an appetizer. More than enough for two, probably three persons. Calamari were lightly battered, crisp yet not chewy. Delicious! Main course of penne Bolognese was splendid. Meat sauce was delicious, not overwhelming in quantity as is very common in most Italian restaurants. No, quantity does not mean quality! Enough food to take home a generous portion which made a great lunch the following day! Dessert was delicious. Home made by management! Home made folks! A delicious evening with friends, but that's now expected at Gianna's!
Always great Italian food. Love the Eggplant Parm...so thinly sliced. Long hots are fantastic also.
We really liked Gianna’s and will definitely come back. The Chicken Parm was outstanding. Really relaxed feel to the place. They were in no hurry to rush you in/out even on a busy Saturday.
We are frequent diners at Gianna’s. The food is always good. The service is friendly and attentive. It’s like dining at Grandma’s house for Sunday dinner!
I wouldn’t recommend the family style salmon. Overcooked and a small portion. Vegetable sides were over cooked also.
Chicken Parmigiana and Veal Saltimbocca were good.
We're regulars at Gianna's and always get the same dishes. Consistently wonderful. Try it...you'll love it.
Gianna's is a regular stop for us and we get the same dish each time:
Penne a la Vodka
Penne in Marinara
Ghost Pines Pinot Noir
We love this place ! Great food , home town feel . Friendly service. It’s almost like you’re eating at your nonni’s house .
I would go back again and again !
Food was delicious, service was excellent, it was a quiet evening and yet we still felt at home 😊
Great food, Great Staff
Perfect place for regular dining or special events!
To close to other tables and no background music. Can hear everyones conversation.
Food was good.
My party was very happy with their meal and overall experience. It was clear all of the staff seemed invested in providing a good experience for their patrons.
Great family restaurant. Food and service is always great.
The seating was a little cramped, ,my son was sitting on a hump all night. But overall the food was good and so was the service Next time I would request better seating arrangements.
The service was extremely slow. It took forever ro get drinks and salads. We were there for about 2 1/2 hours!
I come to Gianna’s mostly for business meeting lunches and occasionally with my family. Great food and great people. Tastes like home Italian cooking. The Parma all are good, the veal is tender and perfectly cooked, and I enjoy their grilled salmon. I will keep coming back.
Another stellar evening at Gianna's. Joanne has a friendly, welcoming smile at the door every time I'm there. A well prepared drink awaits at the bar. We sat down for dinner on time, appetizers were brought promptly. Delicious, lightly breaded fried calamari. Our party of four, all had different dishes, from fresh fish to chicken prepared in different ways. Delicious, each one! Huge desserts topped off our delightful dinner. As always, a perfect meal with great friends at Gianna's. Our go to place in NJ! Stay perfect Gianna's!
Food - Service excellent.Very accommodating.
Gianna's was a very pleasant surprise! Working in the area over the past 3 months and hadn't tried this gem until last week. The chicken special was delicious and the staff was very open and friendly. It is a nice place that you can feel comfortable being casual in.
Always great place to eat family style. Love them all there!!!
