Located in the very centre of the upmarket Yorkshire town of Harrogate, Gianni's Brio offers an authentic slice of Italy with a splash of flair. Bright and spacious with a totally modern interior, complete with scarlet red walls and disco balls, Gianni's Brio is certainly not your typical trattoria giving it a wide appeal for diners young and old, couples, families and groups. An a la carte menu takes a grand tour of Italy, from city to coast, with an innovative approach to cookery which wouldn’t be out of place in the most sophisticated restaurants of Rome or Venice. The relaxed, come-as-you-are attitude of Gianni's Brio coupled with its delicious cuisine makes it one of the town’s most popular eateries.

Very enjoyable meal in a welcoming and warm atmosphere. Food, as always, was beautifully cooked and well presented. A regular favourite when we are in Harrogate and we will visit again next time.

Absolutely fantastic! The best steak I have ever eaten! Couldn’t fault a thing! One of our party has severe allergies and they catered for her wonderfully. Can’t wait to visit again! Every aspect was outstanding!

Excellent as usual..
When I visit Harrogate on business, arriving late, it’s always great to grab a bite to eat that exudes excellence in all departments!

Magnificent food. Exemplary service, not all over you and not invisible either.
Americano Pizza was superb (maybe don’t go for it if you don’t like spicy food).

Lovely meal and excellent service but the noise level meant we left as soon as we had eaten which spoiled our evening. So no dessert!

The quality of food and wine never fails to impress, so much better than anything the chains offer and £ for £ such better value. It’s a great menu too- something for everyone with some lovely sea food options too. Staff are always really attentive and know their wine!

Booked to go with friends as we’ve been before. Food tasty, the pizzas massive. We struggled to finish it. We were a bit disappointed with the limited choice for vegetarians but they were able to add different toppings on the pizzas. Desserts were delicious I had the profiteroles with chocolate sauce which tasted just like melted dark chocolate; yum. The red wine was recommended by the waiter and went down very well. I would recommend booking as we did. It was busy even at 6pm. The service was just right; enough time to eat but not waiting too long. I would recommend this restaurant.

Service was very prompt and food was excellent. A very enjoyable evening. Only blip was I ordered Pinot Noir, a large glass but found it only came in 125 ml - why? I therefore had 2 glasses - cost £19! Ridiculous!

Gianni's restaurant is always our "go to" place in Harrogate. We are spoilt for choice in Harrogate as there are four other excellent restaurants to choose from (and another hundred mediocre ones). Its our 40th wedding anniversary next month and guess where we are going!

Lovely evening at Gianni's Brio. Prices are fair rather than cheap. Starters were very good, mains average or a little below but desserts were amazing. My wife would consider herself a panna cotta expert and has eaten this dessert around Italy - this however, was rated as the best ever!
We weren't thrilled with one of our mains, so this was removed from the bill without hesitation, and without us asking - to say nothing of the complimentary Limoncello and Strega which followed.
Food varied between just ok and amazing. Ambience, service and overall evening....excellent. Thank you

On arrival, our host recalled in exact detail the email I'd sent weeks before, outlining our dietary requirements - vegetarian, gluten-free etc. - and showed us to our table. Those serving us were friendly and helpful. Food was top-notch. The place was busy for a Sunday night (though it was half-term with a number of family groups). We rated it sufficiently highly to book the following night. Everything was exactly the same: great food, excellent service, friendly staff.... and even on a Monday evening, the place was filling up nicely. We'd strongly recommend Gianni's.

The whole experience could not be faulted. We increased the numbers of people going which they did with no problem. We had made a cake for the birthday person, but they don't like a fuss. We were able to collect and bring it to the table when needed with no problems. The food was delicious. I was a bit worried at first as there didn't look to be much vegetarian selection. They were able to adapt a meat dish for me without the meat and it tasted lovely. We had an Italian friend with us, who said the food was authentic and delicious. Overall a lovely meal out. Would definitely recommend it and would return.

The food was very tasty however I had the Duck ravioli which unfortunately had a 2 inch piece of bone and some soft cartilage. They need to pay better attention to the food preparation. The waiter was informed but did not appear very interested

Enjoyed a great meal here earlier this week. Found it on the internet when searching for hotel. As the restaurant was very close to the hotel and reviews were good we decided to give it a go. We were not disappointed. We highly recommend Gianni's and would not hesitate to visit again on a return visit to Harrogate.

We visit every year while attending a show in Harrogate, and always are made to feel welcome and we eat 3 out of 4 nights we are there, and you can’t get a better recommendation than that.

This is our 4th visit, always great food and ambience, unfortunately, the table for 20 people, babies and children spoiled our time in Giannis, the management were sympathetic, but what could they do? We had a lovely meal, when my husband paid he didn’t notice no charge for, desserts, Port and our extra bread, we didn’t expect that, thank goodness he left a nice tip, I only picked this up when we got back to our hotel, we’ll go back but with a later reservation to try and avoid all the noisy children

A good venue for a pre concert meal. However the service felt a little too rushed and my husband and I had to deliberately slow down our eating otherwise we both would have had indigestion. Good value for money with the early bird menu. We would go there again.

Plenty Vegetarian options for starters and extras side orders but, not one main course V option. Waiter said they could all be modified to be V but didn't take time to explain any extra ingredients to take place of meat. Menu needs to state that all mains can be modified and waiter needs to be able to explain modifications. Alternatively include vegetarian version/variant into the main menu . Disappointed!

Loved our visit here before going to see Ross Noble at the Royal Hall. We chose the early bird dining menu and there was a lot of choice for a great price. The cocktails were also very good. Will definitely dine here again.
