Had lunch here while in Montery. Pizza very good "classic" pizza with lots of cheese! The place was cold as it appears not to have heat but would likely be fine if busy. One thing I did not like is the expectation for a tip for a self serve. These sorts of places should make an effort to say "no... More

We got in town a little late, and were hoping to find a small Italian place with a decent pizza. This isn't that place! The place is great for a family, that want to make their kids fat and happy. Order at the counter, and grab a seat, surrounded by more of the same type of people. If that's the... More

I have been going to Gianni's for about 15 years. It is a fun place with excellent pizza and service. The salads are huge and all the pizzas taste great. We had them give us a half & half. Half pepperoni, sausage & mushroom / the other half Canadian bacon & pineapple. We did not walk away hungry, we even... More

Visited here on first night in Monterey due to it being a local's place. Pizza was ok, but I chose a pasta dish which was awful. Could have made it better at home, it was so bland. Tried to put all the parmesan around on it to improve the taste but to no avail. Boyfriend's pizza was quite good. Definitely... More

We come hereonr every visit to Monterey. It's always great service and delicious pizza and appetizers. We chose to meet out friends with their children here for a late lunch on our last trip because it is a family friendly environment. For those later interested they do also have a full bar if you like beer with your pizza. Great... More

Found this place via TripAdvisor app and wasn't disappointed. It's outside the historic centre so a drive or a long walk (we walked) but it was worth it. Good food, excellent service, and friendly staff (the very nice young woman working the till asked me all about London, which was genuinely engaging). Good price too.

Thank Gary W
