I live in a part of Florida where people who don't know better think that a big chain Italian restaurant with the initials OG is the best Italian food anywhere. Being g from up north originally, I can assure you that this is not the case. Giannas was absolutely perfect. Just what I hoped for. My dinner of gnocchi bolognese... More

I used to go to NJ on business a few times a year. Lots of good places to eat. Staying in the Meadowlands. Gianna's was recommended to me a couple of years ago and I won't eat anywhere else. Some of the best Italian food you will find anywhere. Great service and not crazy busy. All the meals I've eaten... More

The quality of the food and service does not match the cost. I had the salmon with a balsamic sauce. The sauce overpowered the salmon rather than complement it. The service was poor. I always feel that one of the pluses of eating at a pricey restaurant is to experience a sauce or type of preparation that is unique. Save... More

Lunch with family and the food could not have been better. Was visiting from Florida for Thankgiving and was really happy to have Real Italian again. The gravy was perfection and the calamari melted in your mouth. We get up 2 or 3 times a year and this will be a must stop each time.

Was in town with family for NE Patriots game. Dinner was great. Food was authentic Italian and huge portions. It's a bit pricey. Greeted at the door and were sitted within 5 minutes. It was after 8 on a Saturday night and the place was quite full. Great service from our waiter, who was helpful and very pleasant.

This place used to be very good but the food is "so-so" and the service is crappy. Most of the staff hang at the bar, talk and carry-on while you sit in the dining room and wait for service. May be "okay" for lunch but not recommended for dinner. 👎

We went for Valentine's dinner, and the service and food were excellent. A couple months later, we received a gift certificate from them in the mail. We haven't gotten back yet, but we are looking forward to eating there again soon.

Wonderful food, great staff - if I lived closer I would eat here every weekend. You must make a reservation because the restaurant is always packed.

A group of us were regulars but stopped going after experiencing poor service. Too many excellent choices in the area like Dolce Novita (now Bistro 147), Vesta, Bazzarelli's and Sagovia ... all are top notch, friendly and polite!
