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.
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!!!
We came from Staten Island after seeing your web site. We wanted to try someplace new. You did not disappoint. Food, service and drinks were great. We will be back.
Exceptional evening out with friends, thanks to Gianna's. Always greeted at the door with a friendly smile and a nice word! It's the beginning to a usually wonderful dining experience. The steamed asparagus I ordered for an appetizer were not on the menu, but Gianna's accommodates! decided to go with a nice veal dish as my main course and wow was I not disappointed. Excellent sauce with an ample portion of veal. The service was exceptional. We closed the evening with a nightcap at the bar. A perfect ending to a great night out. Take a trip to Gianna's in Carlstadt, an exquisite dining experience at more than reasonable prices!
My sons and I went to Gianna’s on a Sunday evening. It was a great experience all the way around. Very tasty dishes served family style. Super service. Pleasant informal atmosphere. Fairly priced. The gnocchi bolognese was to die for. We will definitely be back next time we visit this part of New Jersey.
Great dinner with the best of friends absolutely love the long hot peppers outstanding 👍😊
Once again another outstanding meal from start to finish. Food was absolutely amazing and staff makes you feel like you are home!
I love this unexpected gem. Great home cooking and a great bar.
Good food and service
Perfect location for dinner prior to an event at the Meadowlands. Nothing fancy; just very good food and service.
Our go to restaurant
We were absolutely amazed at the not only the quality and authenticity of our Italian meal, but everything was cooked perfectly and the service was impeccable. Did not disappoint!!!!
Absolutely wonderful dining experience! Service was terrific -- we even changed our order after putting it in (someone at a nearby table ordered something that looked AMAZING) and they were totally patient with us! The food was delicious and a terrific value! We are already planning another trip through the area, just to dine there again. Docked a slight point for "ambiance" but only because the air conditioning was very cold... they were kind enough to find us a table away from the vents. This place is wonderful!
The staff is fantastic. From the Manager, JoAnne Kreeger to the lovely servers and of course, the kitchen crew. The food is fresh, delicious and very satisfying. We go here as often as we can for dinner. We had a large party upstairs and everyone was delighted. The chicken parmigiana and roasted vegetables are two of our favorites. Enjoy!
